There are many directions a core range IPA can head in and for Pike, there's mixes Eureka with Mosaic and pours a wonderful light orange pours light orange in colour and super clear.
That the journey led here is no surprise, with distinct, Eureka-led aromas of punchy pine and resin that come together to ooze a certain dankness, with a side of sweet orange marmalade. The medium body presents sweet biscuit flavours initially, but it's a brief moment: this IPA is definitely hop driven. On the palate, the Mosaic and Eureka work in perfect harmony. Orange is the first flavour to come through, followed by a little juiciness, some resinous flavours and even a little apricot. The bitterness is firm and even though there's some early sweetness, this is a beer that finishes on the dry side.
