Very pale yellow. Snow white head. Well-defined lacings to the finish.

Aroma is fresh hops, vibrant tropical fruit.

Hops right up front. Bitter juicy pineapple with just a hint of pine. Malt is hard to pick out. Clean grain, but the hops are certainly the star of the show.

This is a pretty simple beer. Juicy hops and that's about it. Fresh it's very tasty.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

The colour is surprisingly pale, reminding of a pilsner (6 EBC) tan anything else. The white head is compact and white; some lacing occurs.

The smell is hoppy with medium bitterness (for an IPA) and quite a lot of thick sweet notes of pine needles, grapefruit and lemon curd. Minerals and dought in the background.

The taste is bitter and semi-sweet. Lots of citric fruits and -peels. Not much malts, and almost no caramel at all, it is just enough to create a balancing background to the hops. It it clean and focused. Light to medium body. Orange peels, some perfume and grapefruit juice in the aftertaste as well as some clean alcohol and hints of cereals plus a touch of butter. The finish is clean with citric bitterness.

The carbonation is strong; the many small bubbles fresh. The liquid is light and somewhat dry.

A very refreshing and innovative take on the American IPA style. Enjoyable.

A: Golden unfiltered with lots of white particles floating in it. 3 finger slight yellow head fades moderately fast. Little visible carbonation.

S: Malty, some sourdough, slight musty cellar like quality, grass.

T: Malt, some sourdough, dull bitterness lingers but is not overpowering. Definite English IPA. Bright, quite dry, balanced, relatively smooth.

M: Medium body, medium low carbonation.

O: Good but surprised at how highly others are rating it. It is well balanced. Very versatile, as its pretty middle of the road in taste.

The beer color is pale yellow, slightly veiled. The head is good looking. White foamy head, sticky, cloudy looking. The aroma is fresh, refreshing hops. Fruits, tropical, citrusy. Some bitterness in the aroma too. Nice aroma. Delicious in the mouth. Floral with some citrus notes. Nice bitterness in the finish. Nicely balanced. Very good. Dry.

This one is very good. Loved it.

Bottle (500ml from Waitrose, Glasgow):
Light amber with orange tinges and a very big, two fingers tall head that is part foamy, part bubbly looking and stays at about the same height for a few sips before reducing slightly in size.

Strong with pine hops coming through along with some citrus fruits, a lot spice spice and some floral hops along with plenty of tropical fruit notes. This one was a pleasant surprise on the nose with some pineapple, grapefruit and even some lychee making up the rest of the nose.

Hop filled on the taste buds with a good tropical fruit backing and plenty of pine and floral hop flavours coming through. There is a little bit of a bitter grapefruit taste but nothing too severe and there is a nice orange and citric fruit taste following on from it. As you would expect from something with so many hops coming through, it is also quite a bitter beer.

Moderate carbonation and a medium mouthfeel, this one is quite a hop filled beer and quite dry in the finish. Lots of citrus in the mix and quite fruity as well.

Nice, very much like an American style IPA which wasn't at all what I was expecting. This one is a beer I had heard a lot about prior to drinking it and my only regret is that I put off trying it for so long.
