Slightly sweet muddle tropical fruit and a touch of citrus zest mix well with a touch of flowery hops. There’s a bright, vinous aroma to the beer, making your lips smack before you even taste it.


Fairly mild flavour for an IPA but it comes together in a gentle way that’s tasty. The sweeter elements are very quiet in the taste and you’ll sense the hops coming up as it warms on the tongue, overpowering the rest. They’re a touch bitter and leafy green, tasting of fresh cut roots. The body is smooth with a slight turn toward a dry note on the finish, and it leaves behind a sniff of the leafy hops.


Great pairing for a well-stocked charcuterie board full of tasty meats.


Pours a beautiful gold colour with a clear body and low carbonation. A thick, pillowy head of golden tinted foam pours from the can and hangs around for a while.
