Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium copper orange with a large (2-3 finger) white frothy head that did have great retention, finally reducing to a large cap with some fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a light straw malt, pine and citrus hops and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of citrus (grapefruit) and caramel.
The taste was bitter sweet and mildly malty with hints of caramel and citrus from the start, with the finish having a nice hoppy pine ending. The flavor stuck around for an average duration after the swallow with a mild bitterness that faded slowly.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry oily texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall an IPA that had a nice malty feel to it, which did a great job of compensating for the bold and healthy hoppiness...

Gravity Cask Third of a Pint at GBBF 2014, Olympia, London Aug 2014 - Amber Gold in colour. No head. Very Hoppy; piney resinous hops. Fruity; grapefruit and orange citrus. Malty; pale malts, caramel. Initially quite assertively bitter but balanced out more in the finish. Decent. (2014-08-14)

Deep golden color with a creamy, sticky off white head. Great fresh tropical fruit and citrus nose. Firm caramel sweetness and strong pineapple, tropical fruit, orange marmalade and stone fruit. Smooth mouth feel. Very nice new world hop beer. nittanytide (282) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Poured deep gold, with a thin, foamy head. Faint floral aroma. Taste is orange rind. Dry finish. Somewhat one-dimensional. Tstamba (775) - Maryland, USA - OCT 14, 2016
This American style IPA is agressively hopped at a rate of over 2lbs. per barrel. Big notes of citrus and pine compliment a reserved but firm malt backbone.
