Clear amber colour, with faint aromas of sweet white grape and a ltitle bit of malt and cI trust hops. Tastes well carbonated with a solid malt body throughout. Light and fruity, again with a nice orange peel and cirus hop finish.

The colour is pale gold (6 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger white airy head sinks down to a thin lid leaving no lacing.

New world hops dominates the smell. Grape fruit, lemon juice, lime peel. Hints of mango and pineapple. Some dough, tomato and green bananas in the background.

The taste is bitter and refreshing. Exotic fruits (mango, pineapple), grapefruit peel, bitter orange juice and a slight touch of rubber. Mild clean sweetness in the background. Medium to light body. The aftertaste is less bitter and fruity with a good balance between the floral/citric hops and the candy sweetness. The finish got notes of exotic fruits and wheat flour.

Lots of small smooth fresh long-lived bubbles; the liquid is semi-smooth.

A clean and highly drinkable session-IPA. Not the vulgar over-the-top bitterness as BrewDog Dead Pony Club got, but not really as entertaining either.

A: Pours a very lightly hazy pale honey gold in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation and a faint amount of straw yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall foamy light tan head that slowly reduces to a medium sized finger thick cap in the center of the glass with a small patch of thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of citrus/grapefruit, citrus/grapefruit zest, and herbal hops over the top of very light aromas of grainy malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly sweet grainy malts. That is followed by moderate flavors of citrus/grapefruit, citrus/grapefruit zest, and herbal hops which imparts a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades away fairly quickly.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light but not thin or watery.

O: Easy to drink, sessionable, and enjoyable. Nice that even though there is a light mouthfeel it is not thin or watery.
