33cl bottle. Clear orange pour with a tall, fluffy white head. Smells of citrus, pine and tropical fruit, with a hint of honey. Bitter-sweet and refreshing. Soft mouthfeel with a medium to low carbonation and medium body.

A 330ml bottle with a BB of June 2013. Picked up a little while back from Trembling Madness in York (they should consider making this their signature beer). The label describes it as a UK version of a West Coast IPA, containing a ton of hops for maximum impact. The screen printed bottle is cool, though I reckon they owe a hat tip to Stone....

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A hazy amber hue with fine sediment and medium carbonation. Produces a large head of frothy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Aroma of intense hop notes: grapefruit, orange peel, citrus, melon, white grape, mild pine and tropical fruits. This is underpinned by a backbone of sweet caramel malt and earthy yeast. Hopulicious!

Tastes of fruity hops with a powerful bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, peel, lime, pine resin, melon, mild tropical fruit, caramel malt, earthy yeast and stewed hops. Highly attenuated and intensely juicy. A strident bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is dry, smooth, spicy and tingly, with good body. Some carbonation but could be more effervescent. Very astringent, with an aftertaste of intensely bitter aromatic hops, mild yeast and a hint of malt.

Impressive and delicious - a hophead's delight. A tsunami of fruity hops in the aroma and flavour; the malt comes through but definitely plays second fiddle. Decent body but increased carbonation would give it more texture. A solid effort - this young brewery clearly knows what it's doing. If you love hops then don't pass up an opportunity to try this.

Hazy golden color with yeast floaties and a bit of off-white foam. Aroma is quite resiny with some dank and earthy notes. Taste starts with some sweet malt and orange flavor but gets quite bitter with spicy hop notes on the finish. Light to medium body, well carbonated. A more classic approach on the IPA style.

Yellow-orange colour with a bit of sediments on the bottom. Nice medium head.
Floral and herbal notes on the nose.
The high hops content can be felt immediately (citrus, grapefruit, orange and herbal aromas all blended in and some more).
A very good example of a well-made hoppy IPA.

Damn this is good. Pours amber with minimal head. Smells very unique. Light citrus and candy with a hint of yeast. Taste is light but potent. Lots of hops balanced perfectly with the malt and an excellent yeast presence. Citrusy with a touch of pepper. Very light mouthfeel with a slowly dissipating linger in the back of the tongue.
