On cask at Volo.

Beer is cloudy orange with a small but solid white head. Good retention.

Nice nose, with tropical fruit sticking out. A bit of a weedy scent as well, but minimal. Hop focused.

Taste contains tropical fruit, a bit of citrus and some dank week. Soapy. Some malt. but not bold. Nice flavour.

Medium bodied, low natural carbonation.

Overall, a nice beer.

Serving type: cask

On tap at Bryden's, into a tulip.

Reddish orange with a white head, good retention. Nose has tons of Nelson character, just a real citrus blast. Citrus zest and tropical notes as well. Taste has more bitter citrus, tropical and Nelson character. Light pale malt character, not prominent but there's a bit of malt sweetness there as well. Great body, perfect carbonation. Great Nelson everything here, a really nice IPA.

Serving type: on-tap
