12 fl. oz. can from a Beer Hawk mystery box. Grassy and citrus hops on the nose with a light and sweet flavour in the mouth. Seems to me to have the malt backbone of a pilsner with some of the hop profile to match, but leading to a much more biscuity taste in the finish. Nice and refreshing, a tasty beer.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2018 Can from the Beer Hawk advent calendar. Clear, golden with a big, white head. The aroma is sweet with citrus and pine. The taste is astringent, bitter and piney. jrh2254 (210) - burton-on-trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2018

Bottle. Pours a nice pale yellow.
Aroma. sweet floral aroma.
Taste. mild but still noticeable piney bitterness up front, followed by grapefruit and tropical flavours.
Overall. quite a good beer, near it's expiry, so may of gotten a better score if it was more fresh. AcctError487340 (48) - - DEC 25, 2017

355ml bottle. Pours orange. Floral, orange, tea, earthy, herbal, nice biscuit finish. Pretty nice. Davros IX (611) - Hertford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2017
Can at home in Beer Hawk advent calendar. Very American with the shouty hops and sweetness and although pleasant enough the abv is too strong for it to be sessionable. Benters (154) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Pours a clear golden colour with thin white head and average carbonation. Big New World hop aromas, lemons and oranges and a slight spiciness. Taste is medium bodied, big citrus fruity flavours with a lemony tartness, caramel from the malt and grapefruit and piney flavours coming from the hops. Really crisp and refreshing with a clean, bitter hop linger. Enjoyable American IPA. lokis333 (632) - Birï¿½ai, LITHUANIA - DEC 10, 2017
Clear deep amber colour with medium white foam. Aromas sweet of honey, hops with tropical fruit notes and slight hints of orange peel and peppers. Palate, medium body with smooth texture leaving dry finish. Taste, little watery, peppery and soily with herbal bitter hop notes. Overall, interesting brew not too hoppy but still has bit of a punch. darrylswift (16) - - DEC 9, 2017
Appearance was good, with a nice creamy head. Aroma was good too, citrusy (seems to be the case for many ales!). However, it was quite bitter! Not sure I could handle more than a couple.
