From notes

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of citrus, floral hops, piney undertones and sweet toasty malts.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has some citrus, light mango, bitter pine resins, floral hops and sweet toasty malts.

Mouthfeel: It has a low-medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.

12oz Bottle received in trade with mtomlins - thanks!

Appearance - Light copper colour with a large size off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some nice lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Hops, apricots, malts, melon, grapefruit

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste apricot, grapefruit, and pineapple. There is also some malts, melon and lot of dry hoppy notes.

Overall - Lots of hoppy flavour and some malt to back up the rest of the fruity notes. This is my first beer from this brewer and it's very solid. Reminds me a bit of a better version of the flying monkeys smashbomb ipa available to me locally.
