Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 4th June 2017 and poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: It poured a hazy golden orange with a big puffy three finger white head with great retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Great tropical Citra aromas of mango and peach with a hint of citrus orange and grapefruit.
Taste: Much like the aroma with tropical mango and some light citrus orange. But the flavours don’t stick around for long and only hang around for a short time.
Mouthfeel: Dry, medium to light bodied with moderate prickly carbonation.
Overall: This was a pretty good Session IPA that drank extremely easy. Flavours were nice but didn’t last long though.
