Appearance. Pours a clear, golden amber with a finger of frothy white head that lasts a while and leaves behind some nice lacing.

Smell. Oranges and grapefruit peel with a little sweet, toasty grain.

Taste. Nice bitter hops with citrus fruits and a little grass. Some toasty grains and a decent, oily bitter finish.

Mouthfeel. Medium-light body with medium, bubbly carbonation.

Overall. A nice ipa. Fairly dry and nice clean hop flavour

This has become one of my affordable everyday beers that I like to keep in the fridge. The fact that it comes in cans is also a plus, as it takes up less fridge space.

Not sure what it is, but this IPA has a unique hop taste and smell to it. The hops presence is not overpowering or overly bitter by any means but it's definitely the star of the show. Very crisp. Mouthfeel pretty typical - refreshing, slightly oily; definitely not something you want to chug, but as I said not overpowering.

Overall, a solid, affordable, widely available (at least where I live) beer that's great for relaxing by yourself after work or when you have company.
