This is an amazing hoppy beer! Powerful hoppy blast of bright shiny hops balanced by what is almost too malty for me until I realized this is a double IPA and not a single, in which case it quickly became one of my favorite IIPAs thanks to it’s lighter backbone.

Whatever combo of hops in this is a winner. Piney and citrus waves mix together and each sip is just a wave of flavor and bitterness that’s never gross or overpowering.

One of my favorites for sure! And love the design on the packaging.

I’m surprised at the low ratings. This beer is AWESOME. A strong hop flavor without being overwhelming. Cloudy, like a wheat beer, but with a really smooth taste and a nice head. This is going right to the top of my list. Brilliant.

First time having it, I’ve been trying to drink it for a while ! It’s pretty enjoyable with a nice taste and a great color. A good drink to have while just hanging out with friends relaxing.

Nice head retention. Smell is fresh and citrusy.

Golden honey coloured, small amount of haze.

Taste is clean, crisp with pine and citrus.

Flavour & smooth... No real aftertaste but stout enough to know you're drinking a real ale... One of my favourites

Draft pint, hazy gold with half finger white head with plenty of lacing, smells lemony and grapefruit, flavor is vanilla caramel and grapefruit and honeydew, balanced bitterness, mouthfeel medium, overall an excellent IPA

Great taste (although deceptively strong), competitive pricing, and fairly readily available. One of my favorite IPAs.
