Martin243 (1156) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 27, 2017
330ml can from a 4 for £6 deal from ASDA Metro Centre. Poured into a 1/2 glass. Clear amber body with an off white head, fading to a skim leaving lacing. Aroma of ruby grapefruit, toffee, and fruity Moam chews. Grapefruit and tropical fruit flavour, some barky resins, and a bold, astringent, bitter finish. Slightly sticky mouthfeel. Punches above its weight in that it drinks about 2.5% above its ABV. Rounded and shows some complexity. Rather good. Hang on, surely an IPA not an APA?

330ml can from ASDA. Pours a very hazy amber (unfiltered) with a slight woody aroma possibly pencile sharpenings. The taste is the best part because for the style it is very rounded and not too hop forward. The hop bitterness, malt, citrus and sweetness all combine very well. The mouthfeel is quite rich and chewy with a medium carbonation that is fairly lively leaving splodgy lacing on the side of the glass. Overall I would recommend this quaffable and tasty IPA.

aussiealchemist (52) - Berwick Victoria, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2017
Keg at The Swan, Broadway UK. Pours slightly cloudy with small white head that lasts. Cloudiness clears after a while. Aroma is pronounced tropical fruits, lychees, peaches etc. Taste is reasonably sweet with solid bitterness across the palate. Well rounded citrus and tropical fruit with some malt character. Carbonation gives a good lift to mouthfeel. Great balance of malt:hops in this beer. One of the best I have tried in UK so far. Recommend this one to any craft beer drinkers.
