A disappointment from a brewery who's previous beers I've enjoyed, so one I will purchase again from a different year/batch.
Can pours a hazy golden amber with a minimal ecru coloured head that disappears quickly, but leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma has a medicinal, metallic pong with a hint of hop resin. No balance and the medicinal nature truly overpowers all other elements. The flavour is also harsh, with an abrupt transition from sweet to bitter overlaying rotten grassy tones.
It may be a bad can, or it may just be me and an inability to enjoy whatever is in this central hop portfolio, but I rarely dislike beers this much. And I had high hopes for this one...

I like this. I really, really liked this. A sessionable, real, IPA. Aroma of hops, cut flowers. Color of copper and unfiltered hazy. Taste rises to the occasion. A malty start, with the bitters follow up. Does everything simply right. Good work.
