Poured to a Ora et Labora taster.

A: The body is relatively hazy with a mid yellow and light orange hues. The head is white, 3mm thick having average retention. No lacing.
S: The aroma is very citrusy and resinous, having hints of grapefruit, orange, tangerine and even lime. The resinous profile is a bit deeper but less upfront.
T: The taste starts off with a very bittering orange peel followed by a somewhat harsh resinous profile. Drank fresh from a tap this can have a tremendously good profile but on can for a couple months - as it is now, it's far from perfect.
M: The body is medium to low. Carbonation is low. Alcohol is unnoticeable. Bitterness is medium but the resinous profile is way to high.
O: Way too resinous for me. Apart from that, averagely good beer.

From a 330ml can.
L: Hazy, pale gold with a short-lived head.
S: Fruit & spice but not enough of it.
T: Soft, ripe fruit and some spicy bitterness.
F: A little spritz, pretty smooth. Wish it had a fuller body.
O: Pretty good. Certainly worth a try.

Fantastic hop-forward APA. Great colour and depth in the glass with a strong passion fruit, citrus & wet cut grass aroma. It has a big citrus hoppy taste with the passion fruit giving way to grapefruit & lemon with a long bitter finish balanced just so with cracker malts. A simply gorgeous session ale.
