4.41/5 rDev +5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Pours a clear light amber almost a pink hue to it, finger of off white head, nice lacing
smell is pear, peach, orange, a lot of sweet malt, maybe even a little apple, mango, kiwi. Quite juicy, not the fruit notes I was expecting
taste is pear, kiwi, pineapple, sweet malt definite crystal malts in this one, toffee, earthy rind bitterness, some orange, lemon, a hint of grapefruit bitterness, sour apple notes, a bit of astringent notes
mouthfeel is medium, sharp carbonation but also finishes quite smooth, dry on the end
Great beer, could see this becoming a regular in my fridge. A lot of fruit flavors I do not really get in any other IPAs which is something I find quite cool.
Great balance, one thing about this beer is I would like a little less sweet malt notes, but that is also part of it uniqueness so who knows if I would like it as much if it did have less.
Also the flavor reminds me a lot of there fresh hop APA, very similar malt bills I imagine.

4.03/5 rDev -4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
355ml bottle poured into tulip 28/7/14
A clear dark amber with just a couple visible bubbles but a well sustained thumbs width of foam leaves 6 pencil thin rings before falling, looks sexy
S grapefruit, melon, tangerine, bruised mango, has a fruit candy thing going for it, gummy bears? floral notes, some spruce and caramel
T juicy, lots of caramel, some lime rind, still has a candy thing going for it, balanced for a West Coast IPA
M medium bodied, creams up just stopping short of foam, just a little grit, gummy bears and citrus rind on the finish
O solid IPA, not exactly a palate wrecker like I was expecting but an easy drinking IPA with a solid malt backbone keeping the hops in check
I'll have no problems with the 5 bottles I have left in the fridge but at over 20$ a 6er it might be tough buying another 6 with better IPA's on the same shelf for less money.
