3.7/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Light golden colour with a cloudy body and a foamy, white head that is about a two fingers-width tall and settles down to a thin lacing.

Very pine like, strong bitter & tonnes of hops and a good floral base to the aroma. It smells quite summery and flowery with a lot of pine. There is touches of orange zest as well although these are muted.

Good hops present that give the beer a bitter pine flavour with lots of citrus and floral notes blended throughout the taste. Some lemon and orange as well.

Medium bodied and as mentioned there was a lot of bitterness but also touches of sweetness in there too. The finish was a slightly dry one.

Nice, flavoursome beer with a good body and made for easy drinking despite the huge bitterness levels, I would this a lot more bitter than most of the IPA's have have been drinking of late.

4.3/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a pint glass and purchased from Discount Supermarket, BB October 2013.

Pored a golden amber colour with a thick head and big lacing.

Smells strongly of hops, as the name implies very strong American hops.

Tastes of a balance of strong oily hops and malts. The balance breaks towards the end as hops break through leaving a long lingering bitterness in your mouth.

Overall a very decent IPA, could be more balanced for me, but great for the hopheads out there.
