4.26/5 rDev +8.4%

Clear amber with red highlights. Three fingers of almost white head that is still there after at least ten minutes. Lacing is much better than average.
Smell is malty with a touch of pine and some hop floral notes.
Taste is bitter pine resin some grapefruit and a big English malt presence.
The bitterness rules but is less so due to the good amount of malts.
Mouthfeel is medium with ample carbonation and a long semi dry bitter finish.
Overall an excellent brew that satisfies that hop urge without wiping out your taste buds.
I really enjoyed this beer. And it still has a head after about 20 minutes. Impressive.

I'm drinking this beer watching NFL Sunday football. I'll start off saying the can is absolutely classic. Old fashion. Nice Hops. Grassy Hoppy Taste. Dark Golden color look to it. Nice smell. I like this beer. A beer I need to have more of to give a definitive detail about it. But for a first time taste. I like it. This beer will be talked about more. CHEERS!!!!

Since I'm adding this beer, here's what is written on the bottle: "A style of ale fashioned to survive the long voyage from England to India during the British colonization. This award-winning I.P.A. is about hops, hops and more hops! This ale has an intense aroma and a long lingering finish. A beer for the connoisseur, this is the Brewmaster's choice."
Dark gold/light amber color with a mild chill haze. Low head, but it lasts and leaves plenty of chunky, blanketing lace.
Mild, aromatic and floral fresh hop smell on the initial pour.
Soft, lightly caramelized pale malt flavor up front. The tale of the tape is the very strong, bittering hop which completely dominates the taste prior to the swallow. It is most intense at the beginning of the aftertaste, which dissipates very slowly. Appropriate body with an under-carbonated effervescence.
