3.25/5  rDev -23.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12 oz Bottle purchased in Wahlbar in Fallowfield Manchester.

Poured by the barman, minimal off-white head, lacing nicely down the sides. Copper coloured body, ambient carbonation.

Aroma is muted compared to many IPAs, that grapefruit thing takes hold primarily, but some orange, pine resin, lavender and floral perfume involved, a touch of bready malts.

Taste is, again, a little low key, the citrus notes are there, some tropical fruit and the malty biscuit, caramel undertone has a spiciness that is pleasing. It feels a decent drink... smooth with minimal fizz, but a little lacking in complexity and fails to pack the punch you might expect from a US IPA, so feels a bit ho-hom. There's a number of more intriguing IPAs available on the market in the UK at present.

4.34/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a clear copper/orange color. A dense, pillowing white head rises to over two fingers. Excellent retention, and rings of lace left all the way down the glass. This is a looker.
S: Very aromatic. Floral and grassy up front, light piny and tree sap aromas. A honey sweetness to balances everything out. I substantial, but not overpowering bitterness lingers.
T: Really well balanced here. Floral and grassy hops up front. That gives way to a lightly resinous character. Again, I get a honey sweetness which makes for a great balance. Lingering fruity flavor, like a honey do cantaloupe, and some bitterness. Well done.
M/D: A medium body with a good effervescent bite. Crisp carbonation and so clean. This drinks so much easier than the 7% would make me believe. With such a great balance this is so easy to drink.

This has always been one of the standard bearers from the style. I am not a hop head in the least, but the balance between the hops and light honey like sweetness is great. Really enjoyable, and highly recommended.
