Pours a lovely golden/red copper color. The beer itself is relatively cloudy. Nice head that shows great retention the whole way down. Aroma is extremely satisfying. Very bright citrus hop aroma with a touch of pine. Very vibrant aroma. The taste is just like the smell. Nice malt sweetness with a large over the top citrus hop flavor. Not as bitter as expected, but this ale really packs in the hop flavor. Citrus, candied grapefruit, and lemony tastes all backed by just a touch of malt sweetness. This beer goes down very smooth. Good carbonation, medium bodied feel. Overall this beer is pretty stunning. Crazy amount of hop flavor in this one keeping you coming back for more.

Clear, amber orange, foamy white head that lasts well & leaves lacing on the glass.

Unique smelling beer. Very floral, almost perfume like aroma to it with some light pine hops coming through as well. There is a fruity, grapefruit like smell with some citrus and a little hint of some tropical fruits too.

Lots of herbal and floral notes, a sort of perfume like, summery taste to the beer with some citrus hops to follow. There is a mild tropical bitterness & some good pine hops that were apparent in the nose as well. The alcohol content is very well hidden.

Smooth with a medium body and carbonation levels about the same. There is a slight bitter tang to it and a rather bitter, hop filled finish to the beer.

Not as strong flavour or smell wise as I had been expecting from a Double IPA and the hints of perfume in both were rather unusual but pleasant none the less. A very good beer that was very easy to drink & good in all areas.
