Had on tap. Pours clear, gold in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is big peach, grapefruit, and light pineapple. Bitter, medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Makes for an above average IPA that does not have the same depth of flavors as some of their other beers. I generally like Finback's beers, but this one did not strike me the same way as their Oscillation series has. Still well worth trying.

Unripe mango, white peach, orange, melon and pine. Caramel malt profile. Medium bodied. Lower carb. Balanced bitterness and sweetness. Somewhat dry finish. Pretty good.
