My ratebeer.com rating: 2.9

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 2nd June 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A murky cloudy orange brown colour with a one finger beige head that had decent retention and some lacing.
Aroma: White wine, grape, apple, lemon and orange.
Taste: Sour, tart, pineapple, apricot, white wine, grapes, apple cider vinegar, grapefruit zest and some light funk.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate to low carbonation with some alcohol coming through.
Overall: This didn’t really come together for me. The sourness just felt like it was missing something and there was just a bit too much alcohol showing for the style… although granted, it is 9% ABV.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 3rd February 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy dark reddish purple colour with a two finger pink head that had good retention and left great lacing.
Aroma: Mixed berries juice. Blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and grape.
Taste: Lightly tart, with blackberries, blueberries, grape and lemon.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: Very juicy and nice to drink. Not much of the White Ale base really seems to come through, if at all. But that doesn’t take away from it, and its refreshing, fruity character.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 8th February 2018. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy golden orange colour with a two finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving nice lacing.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 24th September 2016 and poured into a D’Achouffe tulip glass.
Appearance: It poured a hazy golden orange colour with a two finger white frothy head that eventually collapses in on itself after a minute or two leaving thick frothy lacing.
Aroma: A little dank at the beginning but gives rise to some tropical fruits, mainly guava, mango and passion fruit. There are also hints of lemon and pine.
Taste: Very tropical fruit like, especially get mango, passion fruit, guava and peach. There is a slight bitterness in the middle with citrus grapefruit coming through, but its definitely more fruity than bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with medium to high carbonation.
Overall: A self described IPA, I can understand why its listed as a fruit beer on both beer advocate and ratebeer. It is very fruity which makes it very easy to drink. However, I do prefer my IPAs to have more bitterness at least in the finish, but I think overall it does retain enough IPA characteristics for me to still consider it an IPA.
