Brewer Description: (from box) Each hop varietal has its own distinct flavor and aroma, which our brewers use in various combinations to create different flavors in our beers. Sometimes, though, we prefer to strip away those layers and let the bold flavor of an individual hop shine through. Discover the flavors of these unique single hops in this all-new pack of four hop-heavy beers.

Intro: A 12 fl. oz. can, packaged on 5th September 2018. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.
Appearance: A clear golden orange colour with a big three finger white head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy orange, grapefruit and lemon zest with hints of tropical peach, apricot and mango.
Taste: Moderate bitterness, light sweet caramel malt, biscuit, melon, peach, apricot, grass, pine and light herbal.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Quite nice with good bitterness, but the aroma was probably more promising that it tasted.
