4.01/5 rDev +4.2%
Rich creamy head pours from the bottle. Awesome looking beer. Quite a bit of citrus and hops in the initial smell. Lots of maltiness as well. The taste is not as hoppy as one would think and that's a good think. Good balance with the malts leaving you with a balance in your mouth.

On draught at the Secret Beer Garden festival, Dublin.
Cherry amber with taupe film.
Orange caramel nose.
Toffee hit with some papaya then mad red grapefruit hops.
Orange hard candy finish and resin and rind linger.
Medium, chewy, slightly oily.
Simcoe, amarillo and cascade.
A proper hop bomb. Drinks like fresh ruby red grapefruit juice. US calibre.

4.65/5 rDev +20.8%
A: Orange and brown in color with a cream colred head. Head is thick and pours at least a couple of fingers. Head lingers well - still has a top 30+ minutes after pour and thick lacing on the glass walls.
S: Over the top grass and pine hops. It catches you off guard up front but is a really nice twist on the aroma.
T: Good quality hop flavor - again grassy, earthy hops forward, with a bit of a malt balance on the back.
M: Medium body but really nice on the tongue - ample carbonation.
O: Really well done. Hope to find this one again. Would love to have really, really fresh but suspect this at least a couple of months old by the time it reached the states.

Poured a huge 2-3 finger of creamy tan head, impressive retention and lacing on this. The colour is a a hazy coppery brown, pretty dark for the style, with some obvious unfiltered yeast. 4
S - a huge kick of juicy pungent grapefruit citrus hops, fresh pine needles, an underlying almond nuttiness. Rosemary herbal oiliness, lemon, some farmy yeast under the hops, really intense and so much going on. 4.5
T- caramel malts, juicy grapefruit, bread, orange peel and sweet netarine, overall the hop bitterness is forefront but not overwhelming with a lot of malt presence to back it up. 4
M- a big body with such a smooth carbonation, bitterness prickle on the finish. Amazingly tasty and refreshing, the finish is dry and straight hops. 4
O - 4.25 A really solid, well-made IPA. Balance is quite good, a strong contribution of caramel malt adds some sweet nuttiness. It isn't the hoppiest of IPAs but a very flavourful and complex beer, that is really enjoyable.
