Drinking blind before I checked style, I was unsure if APA, Biere de Garde, or stale sharp bitter hoppy beer in general.
Quite sharp, astringent, hoppy. And earthy.
Not exactly integrated flavours nor smooth.
Ok drop, tho

3.9/5  rDev n/a

Appearance -
A pale, cloudy golden colour, pouring a thick cloudy head. Leaves a little bit of lacing. Lively carbonation.

Smell -
Strong aromas - floral, peaches, tropical fruit, hops, pine, pineapple, wheat, caramel.

Taste -
Sweet, peachy, an almost wheat-beer taste until the hops kick in and the bitter grapefruit flavours take over. Cut grass aftertaste.

Mouthfeel -
A bit of a fizz and tingle, plenty of carbonation but not difficult to swallow. Light body, but a bit creamy rather than watery, crisp and refreshing,

Overall -
A good brew. Standard ale fare for the most part, and dominated by biter hop flavours, but the tropical fruit hints are a bit of a point of difference.

Pours amber with a small fading head.
Big, hoppy aroma. Lots of spicy, piny, floral and grapefruit hops. Also some soft clean malt.
Similar hoppy flavours. More spicy, piny and almost herbal hops. Not much going on underneath.
Body feels a little watery. Highly over-carbonated.
