Tap. Pours amber thin white top broken lace. Aroma is floral hops.Taste is more bitter sour than sweet although the fruit tones remain. I guess more rind than flesh. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and an oily finish

Citrus nose. Pale with big white head. A classic IPA that tastes like guarana. Rated by BrewTom

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours amber with a white head. The aroma is earthy, floral hops. The taste is slightly citrus with bitter, earthy hops. Its not anything that stands out. Its sessionable and decent though.

JorgeLee (2018) - Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017
On tap, hotel bar in Boston. Amber colour, white foam. Pleasant enough fruity citrus aroma. Crisp, light to medium bitterness, Cascades. Old school IPA, doesnt stand up in bitterness or aggressiveness to more modern IPAs but it goes down quite nicely and was perfectly pleasant.

BeerInHeaven (428) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2016
pours a clear rich gold with a medium white head. Aroma of pine and some floral. Good carbonation gives it a crisp lively mouth feel. Some moderate hop bitter creeps in. Not much in the way of citrus aroma or taste. Reminds me more of an English bitter. Still, enjoyable and refreshing.

Pours a golden color not much head to speak of. Taste was ok not enough of anything for me to feel strongly one way or another. Average all away around.
