Summary
Refreshing hoppy bitterness is well balanced with the tropical fruit, lemon and malt flavour. An extremely healthy beer with just 13 calories per bottle and just 1g of carbs and 0.1g of sugars per 100ml. That is amongst the lowest I have seen. Winner of the bronze medal in the 2021 World Beer Awards. It is very impressive that they have made something so tasty without the calories. Good quality.

Summary
Crisp, clean and bitter from start to finish with good carbonation which gives a sensation of grainy texture in the mouth, but in a good way. Fresh mango aromas dominate, with some pineapple. Pleasant and drinkable. Lacks the intensity and complexity of its sister beer, Run Wild IPA, and so is good quality rather than very good quality like its sister.
