4.43/5 rDev +19.7%
Appearance: Golden color that has a nice froth and lace
Smell: Abundance of hops. Very nice smell of hops with a slight citrus/malt undertone.
Taste: A great amount of hops at first taste. Incredible character of hops but very smooth at the same time. Nice balance of malt flavor. A bit of a bitter finish from all the hops but very good.
A very good IPA which I highly recommend.

The aroma caught my nose before I even held the glass.
Floral hoppyness, copper amber color, light head that lingered on the edge more than 3/4 of the glass. I will be seeking the beer out again. I am in Asheville NC for a conference, you can bet I will be doing all I can to find this beer in San Diego CA when I return home.

The beer arrived on the counter in a plastic cup due to Bele Chere but was crystal clear medium amber with a low white and lasting head.
The aroma was nicely hoppy and earthy with a good caramel backbone and a slight frutiness.
The flavor was assertively bittered and coupled with a nice caramel maltiness and a very nice hop presence in the flavor and bittering. The hop presence was earthy and well balanced with the malt flavors.
The finish was dry and bitterin with a lasting earthy hop presence long into the aftertaste. The body was medium and was well done. A very nicely done English IPA.
Pint at Jack of the Woods.
From the website:
"English in style, it is monster-hopped, with English malts plus a special honey malt from Canada, Target and Kent Goldings hops added five times during the brewing process. This orange-amber ale is strong in both flavor and alcohol!
6.0% ABV * 65 IBUs"

4.31/5 rDev +16.5%
Appearance: Looks more like an English Pale Ale. Amber-brown color with quickly diminishing 1 finger head.
Smell: Smells more like an English Pale Ale. Malt, caramel, toffee, super-slight booze, piney background.
Taste: Unexpected... The taste is the smell in reverse. Hop bitterness, pine, a touch of citrus, followed by a slight wash of sweet malt and booze before the bitterness begins to linger - more like a piney hopped American IPA.
Mouthfeel: Medium, but more thick than thin. Oily and sticky.
Overall: I really enjoyed this beer. I'm pretty sure it was my first English IPA. If blindfolded, I would've been convinced it was an English Pale Ale by smell and just as equally convinced it was a piney American IPA by taste. I would definitely have this again.

Medium copper color with average clarity. Fine, rocky head with excellent retention, leaving lots of sticky lacing.
The aroma is nice and malty - biscuit, caramel; hops are a bit wanting on the nose, but perhaps this is due to the cold temperature.
The flavor is of herbal hops nicely balanced with nutty malt flavors. Long dry finish with just the right lingering bitterness to inspire another drink.
Medium body, mouthcoating. A very nice example of the British IPA style that shows that all IPAs dont need to be hop bombs to be outstanding. A great accompaniment to food.
Reviewed from notes taken from serving at the Asheville Airport. Served way to cold, but as it warmed up, it showed its stuff beautifully.
