Middle Ages IPA has a golden-orange colored body and a thin, off-white head that manages to lay down a little bit of lacing.
The aroma has a lot of fruity and earthy hops along with a toasty, grainy malt profile.
This one is definitely an interpretation of an English, not an American IPA. Lots of hops up front, with all kinds of fruit but not biting citrus. There is, however, a little bit of an earthy hop flavor. Although it does seem to include some caramel malt, the malt profile isn't a huge, sweet one. Instead it tastes like it has a little bit of toasted malt, and then predominantly pale malts that are dry and grainy.
The mouthfeel has a touch of an oily feel, with a dry finish.
This is a really nice IPA that uses English style hop flavors. It is probably pretty bold and hoppy, in the mold of an American style, but the ingredients still taste English. Worth a try if that kind of thing sounds good to you.

Poured from bottle into Pint Glass.
A- Bold Copper brew topped with about an inch or so of white, dense, foamy head that hangs around for a little while. There's an abundant amount of lacing that clings to the side of the glass as I sip away at this one.
S- Quite a bunch of sweetness at the forefront with a touch of breadiness and caramel swirling around. The sweetness really dominates here but is not overwhelming by any means. A decent malt background with a slight amount of bitter hops too. Smells delicious.
T- The bitter hops are a much more obvious to the palate than in the nose. The big sweetness I detected soon takes over and is a sweet, malty, masterpiece. There is just enough hops left over to round this off very nicely.
M- A medium to nearly big bodied, chewy brew. Carbonation is middle of the road, and this one finishes fairly well. The Orange, citrusy, fruitiness, and dose of hops linger a good bit and are pleasing to the palate.
O- This brew is brewed just over a half an hour away from my house and am glad it is. This is a very solid example of an English IPA and has found its way to being one of the regulars in my fridge. Pairs really good with some Cajun shrimp too!

Bottle from the Sunoco in Canton, NY.
A - Nice cloudy orangey colour. Two fingers of really soapy and creamy white head. Good carbonation coming up. Good lace rings and a half finger of retention.
S - Floral, orange, citrus, chamomile.
T - Some tea, floral, citrus, some decent malt. Citrus and crispness. Buttery, but in a very subtle way.
M - Good feel with good carbonation, decent bitterness and a medium body.
O/D - A fairly drinkable IPA. The English element is hard to discern though. A solid hop flavour that wasn't overpowering but held its own.
