Pours amber, small head

Light pine, sweet citrus and lots going on in the aroma

Flavour has a bit more lime/lemony punch but more of the same too. Carb is lowish, suits this well. medium drying finish.

An excellent beer and I am delighted it's available in a national supermarket now, good value too

L - Hazy amber with almost no head

S - Pine, citrus and caramel malt

T - Follow the smell with a pungent bitterness, the resinal hops are smoothen by the malt presence. Dank

F - Thick and smooth, great mouthfeel

O - An IPA with character. Great stuff and so drinkable!

Pours light orange with a small but creamy head that leaves just spotty lacing. Bottle conditioned. Nose is c-hops, but a surprising amount of floral. Not particularly bold though. Taste is light malt on the front of the tongue and bitter toward the rear. Not quite what I'd call juicy, but going that way. Golden Promise malt gives it just a touch of biscuit. Also getting mint. Overall, a good beer but doesn't blow me away in any particular way.

0 foam, just like my previous Tempest beer, don't they like foam in this brewery ? Anyway. The smell is quite weak, I was expecting more. You can guess it's a grapefruit/pine mix though, but the lack of foam doesn't help. However, the taste is quite amazing. Lots of malty taste around a tropical and piny core. This reminds me of Omnipollo in the way they use the malt. However it's more bitter and less fruity than Omnipollo. The carbonation is right on the money, the bitter and fruity final very interesting. It's very well balanced, it grows on you, I'd have this again in a heartbeat. From the two beers I had from Tempest, they seem very well skilled at what they do. It's complex and interesting. But please, more foam.

Pale orange with a crusty ring of white foam. 4
Sweet, sweet tangerine with slight resin, fresh cherry and flowers. 4.25
Dried apricot on white toast then tangelo rind, pink grapefruit, white pine, and slight dank. Hits of a catty-honeydew thing that hints at Citra. 4
Guava finish and salty, tightening linger.
Almost medium, chewy, oily. 4

Rockin' it like it's 2008: big citrussy C-hops that takes that naughty half step towards kronik. Punches above 50 IBUs - talking labels, strange to list the malts but not the hops. Nothing revolutionary, but I want to drink the heck out of it. And among the rare American IPAs from Britain that is what it says. 4.25

Hazy dark orange color with off-white head. Aroma is really fresh and hoppy with dank and tropical, overripe fruit notes. Taste is really hoppy and quite bitter up-front but there is also an underlying fruity sweetness present. Body is quite heavy with crisp carbonation. Long, bitter aftertaste. A really well made dank, piney and grapefruit loaded west coast style IPA.
