look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance. Pours a clear gold-amber with almost two fingers of thick, sticky looking white head.

Smell. Mango and pineapple, cedar and mixed citrus fruits with the rinds, a little caramel and sweet malt.

Taste. Citrus rinds, caramel and cedar, and mixed tropical fruits.

Mouthfeel. Medium+ body, medium-low carbonation.

Overall. Good stuff. Pretty exemplary of a big west coast ipa.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours an amber colour, head is yellowish cream, dense and foamy and pleasant. Lace clings nicely to the glass. Looks great.

Smells lovely. Loads of zesty, almost acidic, hops - citrus, passionfruit and a big sweet cake-batter malt. Caramelly, tangy, delish.

Taste is sweet, malty, cakey with caramel toffee and almond meal. Hops are citric but very resinous, giving sticky bitter notes on the back. Touch of oak sweetness, bit of booze heat that's a bit rich, but not hot. Palate is smooth.

Full, bit of sizzle. Feels a little boozey without flavour.

Big hoppy, resinous beer. Rich, but smooth and pleasant.
