Perfect example of the new school IPA. Big hops without straying into too much bitterness and more fruits than Carmen mirandas hat. First sniff to the dregs this is a class act and a bucket list beer for me.

Draught @ Van Moll: served in a small taster:
Medium sized white head, clear pale yellow colored beer.
Aromas of hops, hop fruits, minerals, mango, peach, apricot, some flowers and floral tones.
Flavour is deliciously clean hoppy with many typical hop fruits, some flowers and a subtle bitterness. Very tasty!
Aftertaste is fruity, bitter and hoppy, duh...
Low carbo, light creamy mouthfeel and more than medium (but a tiny bit thin) bodied.
