3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light amber with a thin head and heavy lacing. Aroma is all hops, quite piney and resiny. Although I prefer IPAs with a bit more malt character, the hop profile is great on this beer. The bitterness doesn’t stick around for long, making it much easier to enjoy in quantity. The sweetness of the Munich malt and the Centennial hop flavor make this a very nice IPA.
Aroma: honey, malt, tropical fruits MrTipple (6570) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2017
Taste: intensive malt component with mix of hops flavours. Strong honey and earthy from the start, citrus and tropical fruits in the middle and lite grassy notes in the end.
Pine, sweet citrus fruits, mango, passion fruit, grain malts, caramel. Hazy gold, tiny, frothy, white head. Light sweet. More bittersweet citrus fruits, orange, marmalade, pine, tropical fruits candy, soft carbonation, medium bodied. Decent IPA, well-balanced. Cask at GBBF17, Kensington Olympia.

I had it on tap. It pours a hazy orange with a white head. The aroma is orange, mango, and pine. The taste is the same. As it warms, the alcohol becomes more pronounced. This is tasty. There's a lot of fresh fruit and hop flavor. jamaty (2263) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 26, 2017
Aroma a lúpulo, herbal, pino. Anaranjada, consistentemente turbia. Espuma duradera. En boca delicadamente lupulada, de amargor contenido. Frutal, maracuyá, piña. Bastante seca, algo picante. Amargor creciente hasta el final para una IPA sabrosa. Bacchus66 (967) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2017

12 oz. can. Mild scents of hops and malt and yeast. Pours a cloudy brown orange with a white head. Balanced tastes of sweet carmel and cokies with a slight bite at the brief finish. Pretty drinkable. Not too distinctive. koleminer20 (4091) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2017
From notes. Had this on draft at Chick’s Oyster Bar in Virginia Beach on May 24. The pour is a darker golden orange with a thin ring of light off white head and a few spots of soapy lace as it falls. It’s interesting. The aroma is pretty good. There is a strong citrus and bitterness up front before the strong malts kick in. There is a light alcohol on the nose, and a little bit of bitter rind. The flavor is where it falls apart. It’s got a really sharp alcohol happening. It’s enormously bitter, and then fades into something almost sweet. The hop and pine resin just doesn’t work and the sweetness of the malts is a mess. The mouth feel is watery, yet a little thick with a sharper carbonation and a lingering bitter alcohol on the finish. This one definitely is not for me. dagimp (1008) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2017
From a growler into a pint glass. Fantastic tropical aroma. Light body. frothy white head and lacing. Taste is straight up tropical fruit. Mango, pineapple, lots of the good stuff. Yum! sure to buy this again if it’s fresh.
