Pours a rich, amber colour. Smells of citrus hops and faint malts. Slight sweet taste, balanced hops and malts, hints of citrus, earthy notes at the end. Quite balanced and crisp.

**Had it on draught and cask.

Teku glass.
A: Straw yellow/light orange, hazy with big white medium lastin head. Good lacing.
S: Tropical fruits aroma (passion fruit, mango), sweet citrus hoppy aroma (mainly orange), some low pine and grassy aroma - mainly in the background, also noticable quite big malt backbone - caramel, bread, low biscuit;
T: moderate bitterness - noticable some pine, grassy and light herbal flavours, bitterness is moderate and not too long, it's well balanced with sweetness and malty character. Definetely dry and bitter finish.
M: dry beer, medium body, medium carbonation, light alcohol warming
O: Nice beer, but there are lots of nice beers. There's not too much bitterness as for DIPA, the bitter character is also quite short. Amarillo hops are noticable by it's indirect sweet charcter - in this case it should be balanced with some bitter hops. Nelson Sauvin adds refreshing and dry character. Aroma is definetely better than the taste. What I like is this is really refreshing and drinkable beer.

Pours hazy amber with a small head.
Aroma of tropical fruit, floral notes, pineapple, spicy hops and sweet clean malt.
Very fruity flavours; pineapple, passion fruit, floral notes, low malt. Assertive but balanced bitterness.
Needs more carbonation.

A 330ml bottle brought from locally brought from Dunnels. Pours a hazy amber colour, with medium creamy white head and leaves lacing. Aromas is of mandarin, grapefruit, cereal, spicy hops with some floral and bready aromas. The taste has much of the same but also a malty caramel side followed by a spicy hopped bitterness in the finish.
