This has to be one of the smoothest IPA's I have ever consumed.
I opened the bottle to be welcomed by a wonderful aroma. It doesn't have that bold hop smell that some IPA's pack. Poured the beer into an actual Samuel Smith nonick pint glass and the result is a beautiful golden colored ale with a nice smooth, frothy head that holds.
The first sip and I was in heaven. This IPA is so much smoother than others, and at 6% ABV, it's very easy to drink. It has a good mouth feel and noticeable citrus notes throughout. The last sip is as enjoyable as the first. I would highly recommend this IPA to anyone that enjoys a smooth, refreshing beer with a lot of flavor.
Samuel Smith delivers as usual!
