L - Mid golden with very slight haze. Pours with thin white head that will soon clear to lacing at this rate. some minor rising CO2.
S - Prominent. I can smell it from 20-30Cm away. I intentionally haven't read the lable yet, but the smell suggests it risks being a pungent 'hop-bomb', we shall see. Up close I get a blend of mandarin orange and lychee, which in my experience this past few weeks suggests the same. Hmmm... the smell alone is quite pleasant and that is what I'm rating, not 'anything else it suggests'...
T- OMG..., heavens it's bitter enough to make me wince! The fruit notes surprisingly do in part come through in the flavour.
F- Very dry indeed. Perhaps refreshing if it were 40C out rather than October.
O- I enjoy trying new beers but am invariably disappointed by these (to me) over-hopped modern brews.

Bought from major west London supermarket. Canned: 31/8/18, BBE: 28/5/19. 330ml can.
Can lable states it is brewed with Mosaic, Simcoe, Cascade and Centennial hops. Unfortunately to my palate this mega-hopping invariably leads something I find OTT/out-of-balance. I'm at risk of stereotyping beers I haven't heard of in fancy looking 330ml cans as a warning sign :)

Can. Hazy thin straw. Frothy head.
Gentle aroma of citrus fruits and cereal.
Tastes the same. Grapefruit prevalent.
Highly carbonated.
Refreshing at best.

Sesion IPA!!!! I hate that. Tourettes out the way. Piney hops with that aenesthetising medicinal quality and a smidge of burned toast in the background. Very little malt at all. it's all lead guitar and no rythm. Refreshing rather than restorative. Not bad for a cheap weeknight tipple.

Cloudy orange with a medium-small head that dwindles fairly quickly. Citrus smell with some sweetness; clementines and peach as well as tropical fruits. Good amount of aroma for the relatively low alcohol. Flavour quite different at first with plenty of hops and a touch of toasty bitterness ending with quite a clean, dry, crisp finish. The tarter, grapefruit flavours come through more later on.

330ml can poured into tulip glass.

This is a pleasant surprise. Packs a really good amount of aroma and flavour for a low ABV IPA. As you might expect, the mouthfeel is a little watery but overall this is easily the best UK brewed US style session IPA that I've had. Will certainly be picking up some more of this. Cheers!

Pours a hazy, amber with some carbonation and a two finger, lumpy, fluffy head that leaves thick lacing.

Smells of zingy, American, citrus and floral hops. Quite intense. Very inviting.

Tastes hoppy as well. Juicy, tropical flavours with a dry finish. Not bad.

Feel is light/medium body with a little metallic flatness. Mouthfeel is disappointingly thin.

Personally, I would choose either a regular AIPA or, if I want a lower ABV, then a regular APA. Not half bad but the taste and in particular the feel can't and don't live up to the nose.
