Intro: A 12 fl oz bottle with a best by date of 14th July 2016 and poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: It poured a clear golden colour with a slightly less than three finger white head with decent retention and left nice lacing.
Aroma: Strong piney aromas with some light lemon peel and grass in the background.
Taste: Like the aroma, I get strong pine and lemon peel. Finish is lightly peppery with a lasting toasty bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, medium bodied with light carbonation.
Overall: This is a decent IPA with nice crispness, but its not my first choice IPA style.
