3.86/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Can conditioned. Murky marmalade colour. Wispy head which supplies some lacing.
Earthy malt and hop aroma. Both floral and fruity.
The biscuit malt flavour is nicely balanced by the mildly bitter hops.
A soft conditioned feel. Astringency present.
A genuine EIPA. I am only just beginning to accept a cloudy beer.

330ml can, contains live yeast. Pours hazy gold with thick, lasting white head. Aroma/taste: Tropical fruit, prolonged bitterness, tremendous mouthfeel. Overall: a new hop to me - Jester. Very impressive.

Dark gold color, slightly cloudy. White foam, dense and high.
Aroma: fruity, sweet, but not cloying.
Taste: plenty of fruits, and is sweetness and light acidity, it is brisk and tasty.
Gentian: fruity, dry, not too high, super. Saturation medium fits perfectly.

Wonderful English IPA. Perfectly in style. Loads of hops in the smell and the taste. Not so bitter though but really balanced. Very well crafted beer. So drinkable, a 33cl can is not enough.

This beer is, uniquely, can-conditioned; even with a shoddy pour, this beer is remarkably clear. Not crystal clear, but definitely not #LondonMurky, as the kids say. I wonder if the natural shape of the can is better at accumulating and trapping yeast than bottles. Anyway, it is an orangey gold with a very respectable head, not that big, but smooth and long-lasting. Smells of freshly milled grain, freshly cut grass, and freshly picked meadow flowers – in a word, fresh. Fruity, floral, biscuity, brash. It tastes the way just-dried hops smell; full of nose-tingling pollen, leafy, grassy, resnious, and floral. There is a sort of 'strawberry mojito' fruity-herbal vibe to it. Tangy and bitter, with smooth yet sparkly, mouth-flushing carbonation that combines with the bitterness to make your palate feel like a shiny, just-buffed, Pine Sol-scrubbed tile floor. A #juicybanger, as the kids say. Good stuff.
