500ml bottle bought online from Beermerchants.com...

Poured a hazy golden orange colour. White head poured tight, thick and foamy with a meringue like topping then faded slowly to good covering with thick edging... barely any carbonation bubbles... lots of sticky lacing lines...

Aroma - Strong piney sap resin, quite rubbery, lemon and lime citrus notes, soapy, talcum powder traces, light tobacco smoke, green tea, quite herbal, cut wet grass...

Taste - Very citrusy - grapefruits and limes, strong piney hop bitterness, floral and herbal, some soapy traces, orange peel / pith, faint vanilla sugar sweetness, light vegetal traces...

M&D - Pretty sharp and dry... light / medium bodied... an extremely quaffable brew even at 7.7%

Overall - An excellent example of a dry hopped IPA... recommended...
