500ml Bottle received in trade with iguenard - thanks!

Appearance - Light copper colour with a large size off-white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some nice lacing. The head lasted for over 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Hops, apricots, malts, grapefruit

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste apricot/peach, grapefruit,oranges, and pineapple. There is also some faint malt and a nice amount of resiny hops.

Overall - Up there with some of the top IPA's available. Full of vibrant flavours and seriously delicious. I'd be happy to drink this beer every day for the rest of my life.
