look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

While this beer promotes itself as an English IPA, I believe it is fair to review this beer based on its overall taste.

A - Poured a deep orange, clear, 2 finger head with off white bubbles.

S - Very bitter astringent hop aroma with some faint malt notes.

T - Non distinct bitter up front, followed by maltiness but not pleasant. One dimensional with a medium mouthfeel.

O- This is a bland, non descript ale with no complexity. After a couple of attempts at this one, I finally decided to pour this down the drain while remembering I had a Lagunitas on hand.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Copper with a slight haze, a very few fine bubbled carbonation rising from half way up the glass to the surface, half a finger of off white head.

S: Caramel, jackfruit, light boiled cabbage.

T: Caramel, light sweetness, jackfruit, onion, medium light bitterness comes in on the end. A toffee quality also comes in near the end. All flavours are subtle.

M: Medium bready body, medium low carbonation.

O: Well done version of a traditional English IPA. Been a while since I’ve had this style, so its fun to recalibrate from the American spins on this classic. Well done.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured in a pint glass.

A-dark copper with a stained brown

S-citrus background with a fresh bouquet of flowers and grass on the nose

T-the floral aroma comes through again, good bitterness all the way around, definitely heavily loaded in german/english malts/hops

M-good carbonation, creamy malt feel

Not a bad IPA, for a local beer glad I finally got to try this one. I'm not a huge fan of the English-style IPA but this one is pretty tasty. I'd have another,
