High expectations going in, but beer didn't measure up. It pours a wonderful cloudy golden color. Average head. Flavor is slightly fruity, with crisp finish into the bitterness of the hops.

All and all not a bad beer, hop heads will not think this one measures up, but a nice casual beer.

12oz bottle bought from Bottle Top - Cheadle Hulme at a cost of £3, poured into a straight 500ml glass.

A dark yellow, almost peachy hue, opaque and diffuse in appearance with a thin off white head that resolves into a smear over the beer, minimal lacing.

A sweet malty nose, fruity tropical notes with wisp of spicy orange, and a herbal earthiness.

In the mouth theres a flowery wave with a touch of pine, a nip of of tart grapefruit, some of that spicy orange and a big sweet layer of malt, rapidly joined by a hefty bite of bitterness, pleasantly resinous, lasting in the mouth for quite a while.

It feels a little disappointing, a tremor of carbonation on the tounge, but mainly flat and stickly insipid liquid with an overly oily texture.

Just about above average in my experience, lacks depth, although it has a character. These days theres a lot better out there for £3 a pop in the Uk.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
A: Pours a hazy golden with a one-finger head that lingers forever
S: Pretty standard but pleasant with pine resin & citrus zest with some caramel underneath.
T: An underlying maltiness throughout the palate, with a bit of a pine kick upfront then a lingering grapefruit pith taste; long finish.
M: Medium-bodied, though it feels a bit unbalanced. Nothing unpleasant or anything specific I can put my finger on, just an overall impression.
O: Nothing earth-shattering going on here, just a solidly-made middle of the road IPA. The best part is how long the finish lasts.
