Very Good
Notes: At Fourpure, beer is our passion and our travels are what inspire us. Plenty of experience has taught us that adventures are thirsty work, so we created this super juicy, tangerine and citrus Session IPA. Easy drinking and full of flavour, it’s the perfect reward at the day’s end.

Not being a fan of the AIPA (and being American malt-head), I'm thinking that Brits may be better at interpreting a hoppy style because they are, let's say, more moderate.

Easy Peeler Looks barely better than average. Its Smells I like. I much prefer the attack of fruit than bitter hops and this citrus is refreshing. Bitter hops were contained and it all made my mouth feel better. (But then, I had just had a rush hour Tube experience at Paddington that was bewildering... so Easy Peeler's timing could not have been better.

My first from Fourpure (and I hope this is not my last), I went on their website and got their story. Actually, it is very similar to lots of English brewers in this range of less than a decade. Very experiential, like the Millennials. I did watch their Vimeo and was glad I did. Thoughtful. Professional. And I hope I get to visit their taproom in Bermondsey, which seems to be London's laboratory for the next generation. Big OA hugs.

a session ipa with some tangerine and maybe some other citrus. i was bummed to have this be the only beer from these guys that i encountered in london, after hearing a lot of positive things. i was also a little bummed about this beer, which didnt at all live up to any hype i had built up in my head about what it would taste like. its overly fruit forward, still a little too classically english on the malt side to be considered sessionable by an american palate, and with an almost artifical fragrant perfume element to it that kind of gives it a certain cheapness, but its also a little stale tasting on tap in my experience, and that may have turned the whole thing a little sideways. i had been drinking all day, but i never felt full of beer until this pint, if thats says anything about its malt construction or heavier mouthfeel for the style. some grain could be dropped out, and whatever the fruit is needs to present itself more naturally somehow. maybe that means some peel sort of bitterness at the end, maybe a fruit fleshy sweet instead of a malty one, im not sure, but this is more like an essential oil candle or something than a real piece of fruit. i had higher hopes for this, but will find it again when i can have it at max freshness before i get too down on it. lots of craft i found around london was a little dated...

on draft, in a imperial pint glass

appears a touch hazy, golden orange in color, white head. aroma is heavy on the citrus - assume there may be some fruit in addition to the hop aroma. taste is quite heavy on orange flavor, but tastes a bit artificial. somewhat bitter.

330ml can.
L: Very hazy, dark orange colour and a loose, open-bubbled head.
S: Smells strongly of orange oils.
T: Pronounced tangerine flavour and a lightly dry finish.
F: Mouthfeel is light & nondescript, verging on watery.
O: This session IPA is a blast of orange zest with a low ABV but the absence of complexity makes for a disappointing, bland experience. Like someone added orange peel to an otherwise cheap & low quality pale ale. Mouthfeel is really poor.

Platinum; tangerine peel; cracker, slight grass, lemon + citrus oil, mildly tingly finish.

3.75 x 5

Nose is bright + oily, but in an air freshener kind of way. Lagery body + no real sense of what hops are underneath - kills the whole affair. 4P are still making beers for non-craft drinkers.

Got this one from my Beer52 case. Got it in a can that reminded me of Fanta, smelt a little like it to upon opening but much more inviting. Really nice in the end. Crisp and refreshing taste with a gentle hint of citrus,mainly orange leaving a nice slightly fresh hoppy aftertaste.

I don't normally do fruity / flavoured beer (if you wanna call it that) but this drink is really nice!

Can. Straw colour. Slight haze. Frothy to start but subsides quickly to a wispy head.
Tangerine and pineapple aroma.
Orange pith flavour. Quite astringent. Some malt provides balance.
Medium body. Fizzy.
Refreshing but a little too fruity for my taste.
