From Mad Fox's description:
A Session IPA that is very easy drinking, coming in at 4.3% ABV. Big juicy hop resin and floral fruit aromas; dry-hopped Australian Galaxy hops bring mango & passionfruit and dry-hopped experimental American HBC 342 add lemon & melon. The hop bitterness is balanced by lemon zest and citrus hop flavors. Vienna and Munich malt balance the hops with subtle toast and biscuit sweetness

O: As with most session-style IPAs, you can tell the beer wants to be more. To me it tastes a bit like their Orange Whip, with more citrus/fruit malt character than mouth-tugging hops bitterness
A: yellow-amber clear, with little hard and not much retention or lacing.
S: orange, malt nose, a little grassy
T: similar to smell, flavorful up front. Weak in the end (same I've noted on other sessions) - as it seems a little watery
M: ever so slight resin pull tries to come through at end, but ultimately fails.
