Clear, amber orange, foamy white head that lasts well & leaves lacing on the glass.

Unique smelling beer. Very floral, almost perfume like aroma to it with some light pine hops coming through as well. There is a fruity, grapefruit like smell with some citrus and a little hint of some tropical fruits too.

Lots of herbal and floral notes, a sort of perfume like, summery taste to the beer with some citrus hops to follow. There is a mild tropical bitterness & some good pine hops that were apparent in the nose as well. The alcohol content is very well hidden.

Smooth with a medium body and carbonation levels about the same. There is a slight bitter tang to it and a rather bitter, hop filled finish to the beer.

Not as strong flavour or smell wise as I had been expecting from a Double IPA and the hints of perfume in both were rather unusual but pleasant none the less. A very good beer that was very easy to drink & good in all areas.
