My ratebeer.com rating: 4

Intro: A one pint can with no canned on or best before date. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark orange colour with a big four finger white head that had good retention and left lots of nice lacing.
Aroma: Light mango, apricot, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, orange rind and strawberries.
Taste: Light biscuit malt, orange rind and peel, grapefruit, with hints of peach.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Not as ‘juicy’ as other NEIPAs, but I like it as the aroma and taste was still good and it just goes down so easy.
