Can. Pours clear gold with small fluffy white head. Aroma is very pleasant tropical hops: mango, lychee, orange and lemon zest, some sweet malts. Taste is more standard and akin to the other major players in the relatively undifferentiated session IPA category: orange peel, herbs, big citrus pith bitterness, but pleasant and fresh tasting. Good.

Clear, golden color. Big, white head. Fresh aroma of pine and tropical fruits. Sharp hoppy bitterness balanced by malty background. One of the best Session IPA I have ever tried. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EithCubes (5747) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2017
Can. Nose mostly rind with some pine, leans strongly tropical, passionfruit, touch mango, avoids more common grapefruit, etc.. Pour slightly pale golden with a bit more orange up top, clear throughout with average carbonation and a sudsy white head. Taste strongly bitter though not extreme, spicy with a touch of musty muskmelon, medium herbal, soapy with light-medium resin, but that clean resinous bitterness lasts a good long while. Body medium with no watery parts, crisp and clean with a bit of paper, somewhat oily but not overdone, actually getting great balance here with just a bit of toasted malt that comes through toward the end and melds nicely in the aftertaste. Pretty textbook for this kind of hoppy beer, and manages to taste natural and not "stripped" despite the moderate alcohol - kudos. [2017.02.027: 3.8]

Nice IPA. Citrus aroma. Good appearance - golden, clear, with a good head. , Hoppy medium bitterness with a balancing malty aftertaste. Fine beer and eminently drinkable but probably not my favourite IPA on the market

Can. Poured a nice looking orange under a average sized frothy white head. Aroma is DANK, notes of tropical fruits, apricot, peach skin, mango. Flavor is similar but not as much dankness. Palate is medium to thinner with average tight bubbly carbonation.

imdownthepub (14027) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 30, 2017
Canned, 355ml from Wine Rack at Yarnton Nurseries, Yarnton, Oxon. Clouded orange gold with white head. First impressions of this was how thin the beer was, low impact, a bit of a search to get much hop character. There is a light boiled caramel note, some fruitiness perhaps. Really quite disappointing.

12oz can. Pours caramel-gold with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus, pine resin, and a little bit of bread. Taste is grapefruit, lime, some apricot, bread, and pine. Very bitter with a lasting pine finish. Medium body. High, prickly carbonation. Crisp-ish mouthfeel. The mouthfeel appears to intend for a softness that it doesn’t quite manage instead feeling a little harsh - from its high carbonation and big pine finish. Kind of heavy for a session beer, although since its ABV is 4.8, calling it a session IPA is already questionable.
