4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The colour was clear golden orange amber, and there was a light creamy head. The aroma showed strong orange fruit, and crisp bitter hops. The flavour was citrus orange, with passionfruit and sweet malt, there was a very intense resiny bitter hop finish. This is a very intense and quite complex style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is citrus,clove, slight funk and earthiness. Taste is light sweet malts, caramel, citrus, pine needles and a light alcohol warmth to finish. The hop profile overtakes most the malt character bit that is not surprising for an IPA. It is still quite enjoyable. Appearance is a hazy gold with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.
