Can. Light amber. Slight haze. Thick frothy head.
Potent aroma of tangerine and other citrus/tropical fruits.
Tastes the same with pine resin. Light astringency.
Rather chewy feel.
Middle of the road AIPA. Nevertheless quite drinkable.

330ml can.
L: Hazy, orange colour with a thick, long-lasting head and rings of lacing.
S: Orange juice and leaf mould.
T: Mango, orange marmalade and resin. Light bitterness.
F: Medium body, chewy and rich with a subtly dry finish.
O: Moreish, easy-drinking, hoppy AIPA brewed in South London. Favours fruit over pine and both bitterness and alcohol are dialled down.

At the brewery. Clear golden color with a two finger thick head and leaving strong laces.
Mild aroma with pale malt sweetness, pine and white fruits. A bit disappointing for the style.
Flavor is much more interesting with notes of pine, grapefruit, tea leaves, spices, some mango and lychees. Quite dry aftertaste with a decent bitterness, but sure it doesn't feel as high as 60 IBUs.
Bordering medium body with appropriate carbonation.
American IPA with bold piney, citrusy and white fruits hops notes.

This beer reminds me of boldless stone IPA. It's definitely a west coast Ipa. Balanced all along between pils malt and fruity hops. Mostly about pineapple, melon and grapefruit.
The bitterness is low but still present.
Good beer even if it's not the more complex IPA I've had.

CAN
Steady pitted off-white can pour head over hazy dirty blonde. 4
Luscious salted grapefruit, grilled pineapple, and lime Starburst. 4.5
Thread of salted caramel then pink grapefruit, papaya, lime Frozfruit, summer berries, touches of white pine + grass, and honeydew. 4.25
Light, some oily, salty, low fizz, scratchy end. 4

Citra, Mosaic, Centennial

Bright + bouncy - there's a compulsive salty-sweet citrus thing that reminds me of fairground treats: saltwater taffy, kettle corn, margaritas. On trend for light malts, aroma forward, easy body, not clear, et al. Citra + Centennial working harder than Mosaic up front, though I suspect the latter is the X factor that's keeping this interesting. Thickens up as it warms + shows specks of spicy wood + resin that give this layers, though I'd stop short of calling it dank at all. Crazy drinkable + summery, overall. Compared to 4Pure's other offerings, seems like the kind of thing where the brewer was given free reign.

This brewery's best by a country mile, and a top 10 UK IPA. 4.25
