Reviewed from notes. The appearance was somewhat hazy yet also slightly clear copper/orange body with a one finger white foamy that once it starts to die a super nice foamy lacing appears to grace the sides of the glass. The smell had subdued hops through some piney tones, slight maltiness comes out as the beer warms. The taste is sweet and smooth through the previously mentioned flavors, bittersweet aftertaste and finish. The palate is light, sessionable, carbonation is good for the style and for me. Overall, pretty nice DIPA that took me a couple of bottles to try to actually warm up to on my own.

A little cloudy amber beer. Not very foamy.
Fruity and hoppy smell.
Like most IPA, hoppy taste but still quite subtle.
A little astringency at the beginning and a bitter end mostly due to the hops.
Overall enjoyable beer.

I am sure this is not a bad beer. It just tastes very bitter to me- like that old-style white grapefruit juice they used to sell in the little cans - only this is prettier and has fizz.
I like very rich porters and stouts, which are supposedly bitter. They do not taste bitter to me, but this does. Pairing it with various sweet or savory flavors did not help much. Was better out of a glass than the bottle.
I've rated it according to my taste for my future reference, not according to the quality of beer.

Bought a single poured into a pint glass. Nice amber color but with very little head. Smells more like a pale ale than IPA. Tastes like a good pale ale and has very little after taste. Overall good, but more of a pale ale in both IBU and ABV.

355 ml bottle, M and S, Bristol - Pours clear golden with a medium white foamy head. Medium carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma - citrus to the fore - grapefruit, orange/mandarin. Taste - Same as aroma at the front, light malt feel leading to a crisp light bitter finish. Solid APA.
