355ml bottle. In contrast to some reviews my bottle contained no discernable yeast, therefore no haze. I wonder whether exported bottles (to the UK) are filtered? An enjoyable beer. Complex flavours of resin, tea and fruit. Clear gold with white head. Citrus finish. Medium body and bitterness. Quite different from other IPA's.

Pale copper with moderate creamy head and good lacing. Aromas: malt sweetness, toffee and citrus hops. Flavour hop forward but still let’s the malt come through if indistinctly, slightly metallic Finnish.

Hazy copper with a nice steady head of foam with pretty lacing. Nice smell of light fruits, flowers, pine and malt. Taste follows the nose, although the malt is more prominent here. Taste could have been more intense in my opinion. Medium bodied and quite sparkly. Good IPA, but not one that manages to stand out of the crowd. Reliable choice though.

Of the widely available IPAs, this is one of the most consistent. It's the "Old Faithful" of American style IPAs; wherever I go, if I don't want to be adventurous, I can always rely on this solid IPA.

(As always, I rate "look" for label/container design, not the look of the beer inside; I'm an artist and designer.)
