Batch 5 on tap at Volo.A nice bitterness. Pleasant finish to a series of beers. Good citrus flavour, orange more than grapefruit. Hits the spot as a pale, its certainly not an ESB. A little yeast and nice malting to keep it drinkable and a popular choice. Average mouthfeel.
Had it again 4 months later and again it was floral, orane like Simcoe hops, always tough to guess the hops. Good drinkability.Slight orange colour.
Had it again about 5 months later, batch brewed at Black Oak, and a great pale/IPA, with Galaxy.

Beer is an opaque dark orange. Big white head on top with great retention. Head sticks around forever!

Nice scent of sticky tropical fruit, as well as some citrus.

Taste is not quite as good. Mild citrus and tropical fruit flavours. Orange, grapefruit and mango. Mildly bitter. A bit of caramel malt but this is a hop centered beer. A slightly medicinal aftertaste.

Low to moderate natural carbonation. Medium bodied and a bit chewy.

Overall, a decent beer and was certainly enjoyable to drink.
