3.51/5  rDev +2.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

330ml bottle (£2.80, Inn Deep, Glasgow):
Clear, light golden amber with a thin and patchy lacing on top.

A hoppy citrus aroma with some grapefruit and tropical fruits along with a moderately bitter aroma and about average nose strength.

Citrus to start off the taste although this comes across stronger than in the nose. There is some grapefruit and bitterness with the tropical fruits coming through. I could detect some spice as well and some floral hops coming through.

Smooth and light medium bodied beer with a good pine bitterness and plenty of hops with a nice citrus tang. Carbonation levels are medium.

A pleasant and somewhat refreshing taste that proved very easy to drink. The beer went down well and although not one I'd seek out again, it is a beer that I will probably have again at some point in the future.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Yellowy orange with a light soda like carbonation
S: Tangerine, pomelo, apple, orange honey
T: Very light, just a hair bitter on the end. Almost juice like, like a not very sweet pear juice.
M: light body with a tingle of carbonation at the end
O: For an English IPA, quite nice, but I'm not an EIPA fan.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Nice spiky pine nose, at least at the start, then some deep stark bloody meat before mpoet of it dissipates. Crisp clear light golden colour. Like the nose the hops give a strong first impression before they just fall away. Some reasonable just off white foamy head.
On the tongue there is a slight metallic element too. Sort of reminiscent of Meantime IPA without the depth. Want to like this, a lot, but that's how I see it.

Not a patch on the cask version.
