Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.
Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and a moderately strong effervescence. Head is a thick finger of pillowy tan foam. I don't know if I can ask much more of an IPA.
Smell: creamy and sweet malt aroma with just a touch of toast and a refreshing dose of earthy hops. Great example of an English IPA aroma.
Taste: quite like the aroma; hops are earthy but green and fresh at the same time. Bitterness is strong up front but fades a bit toward the end (interesting effect, that). A very well-balanced beer.
Mouthfeel: medium-bodied and quite creamy indeed, especially for the style. I like it.
Overall: quite tasty and drinkable, there's not much more to add. This is a very well-put-together brew.

Pours a hazed orange with a sweet sunshine highlighted glow. A fat head of cream colored foam falls slowly and clings to the glass. Nose is grapefruit and sweet orange. A sweet subtle bit of brown sugar for malt. An earthy light pine and spice. Taste is fantastic! This beer has the grapefruit in all it’s glory. From the pith to the peel. The tartness of it . Then to back it up is a sweet bright orange. It’s a west coast style malt with a touch of caramel and biscuit for weight that comes through as this beer warms. Finishes dry and with that earthy pine and spice. It has a moderate bitterness that does not eclipse all the flavors that want to linger at the back palate but slowly pushes them aside until you are feasting on a lingering bitter that is simply wonderful.
This beer drinks like the label .It’s like coasting on a bike . It’s fruity, it’s got a big flavor and a big finish it’s a pleasure and it could give plenty of the best IPA’s a good run for their money.

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!!!!

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.

Pours a clear amber color with a white head that leaves little bits of lacing.
Smells of earthy hops and toasted malts.
Tastes of a good dose of earthy hops coupled with solid malt backbone. Hops lead off with an earthy and grassy feel to it. Moderate amount of bitterness is washed away by caramel malts and toffee notes. More hops come towards the end and leaves a lingering pine note.
Mouthfeel is medium-full with a smooth amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is a nice English IPA with full fleshed out hops.
