A rich, unfiltered golden in colour, this limited release from Collective Arts boasts Crystal and Citra hops and a high ABV content, along with a dense, rich head.

With zesty citrus on the nose and an undertone of woody, peppery spice, this is is a classic craft IPA through and through.

Bitter, young orange rind mixed with gentle maltiness on the tongue, with generous grapefruit on the finish.

Less hopped than their Rhyme & Reason, and thus leaving a clean finish, rather than the classic high-hop, high IBU film imparted by other craft IPAs.

Enjoyable, but expensive, all things considered.

Hoochsavvy Grade: B+
