My rating: 3
My beeradvocate.com rating: 3.77
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.6

Intro: A 440ml can, canned on 20th November 2018 and with a best before date of 22nd May 2019. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy orange colour with a one finger white head that had pretty good retention and left some nice sticky lacing.
Aroma: Apricot, yoghurt, milk candy and citrus rind.
Taste: Sweet, tropical fruit, apricot, pineapple, lactose, milk candy, slight bitterness, citrus rind.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Fruity milk candy sweetness was perhaps a bit too sweet for me. The light bitterness wasn’t enough to fully balance it out.

My rating: 3
My beeradvocate.com rating: 3.53
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.4

Intro: A 330ml bottle, looks like it had a best before date on the bottle at one time, although now its definitely not legible. Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass.
Appearance: A very hazy darkish orange colour with a less than one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly, but left some curtain lacing.
Aroma: Pineapple, apricot juice, mango, orange pulp, pine and lime zest.
Taste: Moderate sweetness, lactose, pineapple, some hard to describe taste… I want to say creamed peach maybe, creamy vanilla, and lightly herbal.
Mouthfeel: Light bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Taste was a little unusual (but not terrible) to begin with, but I think it grew on me towards the end. It’s quite sweet (but perhaps not overly so) for an IPA, but is lacking a bit of bitterness to balance.
