Enjoyed December 9, 2018.
Pours a hazy pale yellow straw colour with two fingers tightly packed head that becomes foamy quite shortly.
Aroma citrus forward, some tropical - pineapple, a bit dank and pine notes.
Taste of ripe orange, tangerine, again touches of pine, a bit of sweaty dankness - bitterness early that clings - not overpowering but persistent.
Finishes with that lingering tropical bitterness, dankness.
Good - a worthy hazy IPA but much like many - hard to say stands out - not a criticism of this beer, rather the style a bit.

Pours a hazy light orange with fine soapy head.

Smell is juicy with notes of peaches, melon, pineapple and a slight dankness.

Taste is juicy and fresh. Notes of citrus and peaches with a moderate, piney bitterness. Well balanced, and a little bit dank.

Mouthfeel is medium and soft, well carbonated.

Overall, a very nice IPA, balanced and well made.

Light hazy, yellow beer with a white head. A lot of lacing on the glass.

Fruity nose! Orange, pine, citrus, pineapple, passion fruit and caramel malt.
Taste: Tropical fruits, orange, lime, sweet grapefruit and grass.
Medium body with soft carbonation.

I had this at 3 months old (a while ago). I love these hops, but it was a bit sweet and weedy. Definitely not as good as earlier versions, but their still doing great stuff!

Great smell but the grapefruit taste disappears seconds after the last swallow. Maybe mines too old?

L: Poured from a tallboy can to a pint glass. Had a yellow-orange color and a very cloudy consistency. There was an inch of foamy, somewhat long-lasting head. Excellent lacing.

S: A very nice aroma of hops, citrus fruit, malt, vinous quality, and some tropical fruit.

T: Tasted of a small amount of malt (barely present), a bit of tropical fruit (passion fruit, papaya), a moderate amount of hops (not overdone), some of the white wine vinous quality, and a good shot of citrus (orange, in particular). This a sweet and subtle kind of flavor. It's not as aggressive as other IPAs, but it's still quite tasty.

F: A decent amount of carbonation with a slightly slick finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, easy to drink IPA. Drinkable.

Pours a hazy apricot orange with creamy white cap, sheet of lace trailing partway down the glass. Smell: white wine grapes, white nectarine, biscuit, lime and soft papaya and orange notes. Taste: sweet orange, papaya, lemon-lime candy, white grape juice, white nectarine; sweeter than the nose suggests and vibrant. Medium-plus bodied, plush. It's not necessarily a Nelson showcase, but is quite tasty and well rounded.

Smooth IPA with a slight citrus taste. Tangy taste at first sip but mellows out pretty quickly. Good beer, hops could pack a little more punch before they disappear.

Can: Poured a semi-hazy/cloudy yellow color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of floral tropical notes with some light sauvignon blanc notes is enjoyable. Taste is also enjoyable with notes of tropical fruits, huge citrusy floral undertones and light wine notes. Body is almost full with good carbonation. Very well brewed with good drinkability but I was expecting a little bit more hops dominance.

Appearance - Pours a hazy peachy gold with four fingers of frothy white head.

Smell - tropical and citrus hops, pineapple, tangerine, hint of vinous aromas, passion fruit, bready malts, and earthy yeast.

Taste - tropical and citrus hops upfront followed by the pineapple, and tangerine. The hint of vinous aromas is there but is dominated by the citrus and tropical hops. The bready malts and earthy yeast finish the brew off.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Finishes sticky with a pleasant bitterness from the hops and tropical fruits.

Overall - A welcome return to the consistency that Collective Arts is known for. A very flavourful and enjoyable brew. I do wish the Nelson Sauvin hops made a little more of presence as it's dominated by the tropical fruits but nonetheless a tasty brew!

473ml can - always nice to see these new singles on my favourite local bottleshop's shelves.

This beer pours a hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with three zaftig fingers of puffy, rocky, and mildly fizzy eggshell white head, which leaves some stellar layered frilly lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of gritty and grainy cereal malt, some dank pine resin, a muddled stone fruitiness, further white grape must notes, some stoney flintiness, and more leafy, weedy, and floral green hop bitters. The taste is bready and doughy caramel malt, passionfruit, candied oranges, macerating grapes, some damp minerality, and more floral, weedy, and piney verdant hoppiness.

The carbonation is fairly restrained in its bored-seeming frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and essentially smooth, as these aren't the hops you're looking for if you're expecting trouble at this particular juncture. It finishes off-dry, the big-boy frooty essences exhibiting the most lingering chutzpah.

Overall - Collective Arts hits another one out of the park with number 7 in the series. They claim it's a 'southern hemisphere IPA', which is partly true, but I'm getting a hefty side helping of NE-style to boot. At any rate, it can be both, and I'm gonna enjoy the rest of this, yes sirree!

Basically a more alcoholic, but miraculously softer and mellower version of Life in the Clouds. Really hope they brew this one again. Had at Meadhall the day after their 12 Brewers of Christmas event.

Purchased a 4 pack and freezer flashed a can dated 10.10 and poured in a pint glass. Cold "head film" stayed with the sips and laced the glass beautifully to the bottom of the glass.. The aroma VERY unique (Nelson?) to me and stayed throughout the drinking event. I loved the blend of hops and fruit flavor. NO. 7 has a crisp finish similar to a dry wine with a great finish on the top, back of your tongue.

Drink COLD...Outstanding brew.
