3.78/5  rDev -0.8%

A - Just a 1/4 inch of head that pulls back to a pretty lace ring, totally sticky. Beer is a hazy amber brown.
S - Biscuit malts, tea leaves, citrus and herbal hops.
T - Very clean and citrus tasting, with mild biscuit malts and drying herbal tea's. It's actually one of the better English IPA's due to it balance.
M - Light to medium, very clean and tasty IPA.

Overall a perfect balance of hops to English malts. Worthy of the price.

4.06/5  rDev +6.6%

Appearance - cloudy orangish amber, nice sticky head that is a little watery but laying down some good lace tracks around the glass.

Aroma - nice hit of piny hops on opening the bottle. Fades to a very mild hoppiness and some light caramelly grain. The citrus and butteriness of the English yeast show up in a few minutes, the yeast leading the way. Good resilience too once it arrives.

Taste - decent buttery grains up front, the hop hit is very well balanced. Some citrus but not too punchy. Really spreads around the flavor in the mouth well. The bitterness pushes the grain off after the swallow and goes dry, a little warm, and pretty darn pleasant. Finishes with a hint of malty twang, orange peel, and balanced bitterness.

Mouthfeel - crisp, medium to medium-light. Refreshing, clean.

Overall - excellent session brew given to me by a local homebrew buddy Steve. Thanks, man!

Pours a nice shade of gold with a huge head into my glass. Good colors for an EIPA, a style that I feel is dying out slowly.

Aroma is more "fruity" than I expected with peach and just a touch of aroma hops. This style isn't know for hard-hitting bitterness.

Taste reflects that. Balanced, "fruity" with a touch of toffee.The label doesn't list it but I'm going to take a stab in the dark and guess that the hops are Fuggles. Feel free to correct me.

Mouthfeel is full of lingering toffee and just a touch of bitterness. Carbonation is excellent.

Definitely worth a try if you want a break from the standard American IPA.
