Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 10th January 2022, with a best before date of 9th July 2022. Poured into a winebar glass.
Appearance: A hazy deep orange colour with a one finger white head that had decent retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrus forward, grapefruit, lime, orange pith, citrus rind, with notes of yellow stone fruit.
Taste: Grapefruit rind, orange pith, melon, grassy, light tropical peachy notes, with a lasting bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to light carbonation.
Overall: It’s not as juicy forward as I would have expected, but I’m happy that it’s not overly sweet like many TIPA’s. It’s may also be a touch boozy, but not overly so, or any more than the average TIPA. I think in the end, there’s nothing wrong with the flavour profile, it’s just not one of my favourites.
