Intro: A 1 pint can with no canned on or best before date. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: A clear golden copper orange colour with a just over two finger off white head with great retention and nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy orange juice, orange zest, grapefruit and caramel malt with a touch of mango.
Taste: Citrusy like the aroma with grapefruit and orange zest bitterness, some pine, and caramel malt. The finish has a nice lasting bitterness and its not overly sweet.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was nice and I enjoyed this. For me, the key was that it was not overly sweet like so many DIPAs seem to be these days.
