On-tap at the Sail & Anchor, which has to be the best beer location on the West Coast, if not in the whole of Australia. This is one of a couple of house beers they had on tap.

Pours a hazed, golden orange colour, with a fine and fluffy white head. Slick body, but reasonably light. Minimal lacing, but decent enough overall. Fits the bill stylistically, in any case.

Nose is hoppy in the American style, giving aromas of fresh citrus. Some fruitiness, but it tends more to the clean, crisp green hops I associate with a good pilsener. Decent depth, marmalade sweetness comes through as it warms slightly. Nice.

Taste is clean and fresh. It doesn't push the envelope in terms of flavour or bitterness, but it comes out pleasant and sharp. Citrus, again a hint of fruit, and a little malt sweetness, but only ever enough to counteract and balance the other characters. Very decent, and definitely stylistic.

A nice IPA. Smooth, pleasant, stylistically good and very drinkable. Certainly something I'd be happy to drink regularly in locale.

A - A light orange, foggy body, capped by one finger of clean white head. Drools of lace follow.

S - Fruity hops, fresh orange, apricot with a mild malt backbone.

T - Follows the nose with some subtle peach and apricot. The IPA bitterness is there but restrained (47IBUs). Some biscuity malt holds it together.

M - Light body, medium carbonation, clean and balanced.

O - A good starter IPA for anyone dropping in to this craft-centric pub. Very accessible.
