look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Very light summery IPA. Pours with ample foam and leaves behind some lace. Cloudy. Very light herbal aroma. Lightly herbal hop flavor. Very light pilsner malt flavor outshines hops until the bitter, minerally finish. Kinda like it, but not really an IPA except for a really bitter finish. Good summertime bitter ale.

Tap at armsby abbey

light fluffy 1 finger head, doesn't really fade but leaves a nice lacing when the beer disappears, semi hazy golden straw colored.

Nose is loaded with nugget hops, earthy and spicy, just touch of fruity hops, bit of malts underneath.

Taste similar, hops are fairly dominant but not as mouth crushing bitter as I expected, grassy earthy hops with a bit of spicy, then some bitterness but not a lot up front. Then grainy malts, little sweetness, bit of juicy malt and hop. Finish ramps with bitterness earthy and grassy, but never hits the levels I expect.

Mouth is med bodied, good carb.

Overall not what I expected, fairly bland and very lame for nugget hops. Oh well.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: very hazy and cloudy orange color with a 2" head that slowly falls. Nice lace paints the glass.

Smell: earthy tones and some softer citrus comes through to the nose.

Taste: caramel, lemon zest, some pear, big earthiness, and some grassiness. Bitterness is moderate in this single hop ale.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Crisp from start to finish. Light dryness late. Aftertaste is short lived.

Overall: a quaffable IPA that is earthy and grassy, so it may not be as refreshing as some other IPAs. Enjoyable for me personally.
