330ml can. Pale, light bodied, moderately hopped, easy-drinking, American-style IPA. Fruity nose. Tropical fruit & barley water flavours. Moderate to light bitterness with a long, dry finish. The 6.7% alcohol is well hidden.

Clear golden colour, medium head and retention. Normal lace.
Aroma of hops, resins, tropical fruits.
Medium body, oily texture, normal carbonation.
Taste or resins, hops, tropical fruits. A hop bomb.

Solid England brewed IPA. Very hoppy. Floral and earthy. Grapefruit citrus. Very Amercan like. Bready malts. Fairly bitter and sticky. Medium bodied. One of the better Brittish brewed IPAs I've tried.

CAN
Hazy lemon yellow with leggy can pour white foam. 4
Pineapple and papaya but also a bit of mustiness. 3.75
Thread of cracker, then a whack of sugared grapefruit, kumquat, white pine, and muskmelon hops. Pineapple and basil to finish. 4
Crisp, oily, just past light. 4

Mid-December BBD in early October - 3 months out? The can does say to drink fresh, which is encouraging. Wisp of malts, juicy, all fruit, so trendy, bla, bla. Smooth, not overly bitter, 6.7% is a strong-but-not-silly ABV. Lovely and all but doesn’t seem to justify the exhaustive recipe design that the blurb talks about.

And I’m sorry, but there are a 100 IPAs in the States that are “good but not awesome” like this, and most of them are $5 a 660ml bomber, not €4 a 330ml can. 4

A 330ml can with a BB of Aug 2017. Acquired recently from Trembling Madness in York. The label mentions that it is unfiltered. The can art is awesome.

A: Poured into an IPA glass. A bright golden hue with faint haze and good carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding to a thin surface layer. Nice lacing.

S: Aroma of fruity, herby hops with hints of grapefruit, lemon zest, citrus peel, subtle grape, grass/hay, mild spice, earthy yeast and pale malt. Hop-forward yet balanced - nice.

T: Tastes of zealously aromatic hops with notes of citrus peel, zest, mild grapefruit, a hint of melon, grass/hay, herbs, earthy yeast, subtle pale malt and a touch of grain. Dry, with a powerful hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with spritzy carbonation and decent body. Hop oils tickle the palate. Aftertaste of grass/hay, herbs, light citrus zest, earthy yeast and pale malt.

O: Excellent - a crisp, balanced IPA that delivers a solid hop payload without overkill. Looks great, while the aroma and flavour are dominated by citrus notes, grassiness and a robust bitterness. Good body; a shade thin for the strength. A very drinkable IPA that works its magic effortlessly. Well worth sampling.

330ml Can from Good Spirits Co Wine & Beer, Glasgow (£2.70):
This one was a really nice offering from Beavertown, definitely up there with their best & a welcome turn around from their Stingy Jack that I tried last. The beer opened with a lot of bitter hops and pine, both of which continued throughout & were joined by some tropical fruits & citrus. The beer proved to be a very easy one to drink despite the relatively high abv. & the huge amounts of bitterness; it's also a beer I can definitely see myself having again in the near future.

Cool name that shows attention from hopheads.
Slightly hazy amber color with a thick head with decent retention.
Mild aroma with notes of passion fruit, oranges, lychees, malt sweetness and lemon.
Flavor with notes of pine, honey, spices, mango, lychees, lemon and slightly toasted malts. Dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light to medium body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 6.7% is well disguised.
Nice brew. The faint nose didn't announce the flavorful American IPA that resulted to be. Traditional recipe well executed.

Slightly cloudy yellow color with slightly off-white head. Aroma has a nice, classic west coast hop profile with grass, flowers, slightly dank and piney. Taste has lots of hop resin, really "green" and grassy but it's not too bitter, quite mellow actually. Body is quite light and well carbonated. Really easy drink and fresh for its ABV.
