A 330ml can with a BB of Feb 2015. Acquired a little while back from Trembling Madness in York. Described as a session IPA; I love the bizarre artwork.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. A hazy golden hue with fine sediment and medium carbonation. Produces a massive head of creamy white foam with good retention; this slowly reduces to a thick surface layer. Nice lacing.

S: Aroma of bountiful fruitiness with hints of grapefruit, lime, citrus, white grape, mild melon, tropical fruits, subtle grass, light malt and earthy yeast. Delicious.

T: Tastes of wonderfully fruity aromatic hops with a crisp, bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, orange peel, lime, citrus, white grape, melon, tropical fruits, grass/hay, subtle grainy malt, earthy yeast and mild stewed hops. Well-attenuated, followed by a stinging hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with pleasant carbonation and decent body. Hop oils tantalise the palate. Somewhat astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of citrus, bitter aromatic hops, earthy yeast and faint malt.

O: Fantastic - an amazingly hoppy brew that goes down a treat. Looks lovely, while the aroma and flavour are superb. Lashings of citrus and fruity hop notes backed up by subtle malt and yeast. Good body; perhaps a shade too thin. Wonderful, and demonstrates that IPAs don't have to be herculean in strength to deliver. An excellent brew - don't pass it up if you have the chance to try it.

Drank at its original brewery home.
Hazy amber color with a head that keeps a constant ring and leave some laces.
Predominant aroma of tropical fruits and sweet peaches.
Flavor is a festival of tropical fruits, papaya, peaches, passion fruit and pineapples on a base of slightly toasted malts. Hints of pine and honey. Dry aftertaste with a pleasant long bitterness.
Medium body with low carbonation.
Smooth and flavorful beer, very fruity, a nice surprise.
