4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Aroma: A huge amount of cirtus hop aroma with lots of complex fruitiness. Orange, grapefruit, lemon. The malt comes though just a little bit in the aroma. Appearance. Beautiful golden orange color, thick rocky head which lingers nicely. Flavor: Some caramel, but really this beer is about the hops. A very much easy drinking heavy hopped pale ale. The hop flavor in this beer is out of this world, they probably throw a huge amount in late in the process to get such a wonderful flavor out of it. Palate: Medium body, no off flavors, perfect amount of carbonation. Lower bitterness. Overall: If you love hops, but don’t love IPAs and the bitterness, this beer is worth a try. The late hopping they do gives it a huge hop flavor with less bitterness and allows you to get a lot of the malt out of it. Overall I think this the perfect american pale ale session beer if you are a hop head.
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 (42) - - DEC 25, 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 (137) - 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.

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.

Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is grass, malt, bread. Taste is lemon, malt, leading to an earthy, slightly bitter finish that lingers for a good while. Thin bodied, low carbonation. Pretty nice! hellrunner (14) - - DEC 7, 2017

Can. A well hopped ale, but with a good biscuit malt base to balance it. This comes across more as an English than American ale to me. Quite earthy, but with hints of citrus fruit too.
