On tap at the brewery tap. Pours hazy golden yellow with a white head. Fruity mango hop pine aroma. Sweet finish.

keg at brewery bar
another dodgy batch, the resinous hops are there but that chlorine taint makes it all but undrinkable (though nowehere near as horrible as the spring bock). slightly hazy pale amber. I think there’s a decent beer under there somewhere - shame.

The mango complements the beer well...I don’t like fruity beers. For an IPA it seemed under-hopped. It was a very smooth drinking beer that easily complements a meal or can be enjoyed on it’s own.
