A serviceable IPA. A vaguely fruity note in there, but it works. Otherwise well balanced -- mild but discernible hop bite on the finish.

Clear, maize color. Poured fresh (1/14/15 BO) bottle from Wegmans into pint glass and produced two fingers of foam. Citrus notes in the smell. Very balanced malt and hop profile which matches the advertised English IPA style. Overall, a great representative of the style,

Had this on tap. A very fresh, drinkable ipa. I could drink these all night without an issue. It has a clean, crisp hop profile of slight bitter and grassy notes balanced by a mild malt. Just enough to balance this beer, without drowning out the hops.

Will seek out and purchase again.
