Intro: A 500ml can, with a best before date of 25th April 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden straw yellow orange colour with a big three finger white head that had great retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Lemon tea, lemon peel, floral, perfume-y, rosewater with hints of pine.
Taste: Lightly bitter, lemon peel, grapefruit, citrus rind, lemon tea, floral.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: Not bad, perhaps a bit too floral for me, and yet, also not easy to describe, as its not really bitter like an IPA, nor is it really juicy like a NEIPA. Also body was too heavy for my liking as an IPA.
