Intro: A 16 fl. oz. can with no canned on or best before date. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A lightly hazy golden orange colour with a big three finger white head that had great retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Orange, grapefruit peel, biscuit, light caramel, pine, pineapple, mango and blueberries.
Taste: Moderate sweetness, biscuit, honey, papaya, pineapple, light bitterness, mandarin peel and rind, and grass.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: It’s nice, but perhaps too sweet a Double IPA for me to fully enjoy.
