A - Poured brown with a small off-white head.
S - Faint malts and hops
T - little bitterness and carmel malts,
M - Medium body and moderate carbonation.
O - I think its confused. It says its a classic English IPA and then states that its very much in the style of the American IPA. Judging it against the style it is not well done.

This beer is a hazy amber color. It has a modest white head. The aroma is clean and fresh, with lots of floral hops and pale malt scents. Soft, sweet, and just a little bitter. The hop taste is very well balanced. Both flavors have a commendable strength. Full in body. A solid beer.

Dark amber copper color with a one finger head with low retention, but leaving laces.
Nice aroma of grapefruits and pine with sweet toasted malt notes.
Bitter and fruity flavor with notes of grapefruits, tangerines, tea bags and pine. Toasted and caramel malts are very much present, as well. Finishes with spices. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness.
Medium body with appropriate carbonation, slightly effervescent and sticky. Wheat gave it some roundness to it.
An IPA bold in malt and hops, but not over exaggerating it, maybe a bit too sweet, more at a DIPA level.

Pours a rather unappealing brown with little to no head and sweet malty aroma. The beer is trying to be an english IPA with a west coast style bitterness and failing at it. An unrefined bitterness is paired with an overly sweet malt character and strong fruity overtone of figs or plumb. The mouthfeel is watery with a light but abrasive carbonation. This is a beer that does not become more appreciable as it warms and really tastes like a home brew. The best part about this beer is the awesome artwork of a casual devil drinking a foamy brew out of a horn.

bottled served in a weizen glass, got this as an extra. straw amber with one finger eggshell head with good retention and lacing. aroma of grapefruit, malt. Pretty sweet malt forward IPA, not really fitting in the more modern term of american IPA but enjoyable nonetheless.

I wouldn't seek this one out unless I was really in the mood for a sweet ipa.

On tap. FIrst and lightest in a series of an IPA flight.

A: Looks inviting. Rich copper with fair amount of carbonation. Nice head leaving a good layer of lacing behind.
S: Mostly caramel, malty, boozy.
T: Predominantely malty caramel. Not very complex.
M: Decent, just enough carbonation.
O: I'm not overly impressed. Too one dimensional, and uninteresting. It doesn't taste much like an American IPA. As another reviewer mentioned, probably more like an English IPA.

I was looking really forward to trying a beer from this brewery, but I must say I was disappointed by this one... Rest of the flight.... here we go.
