Just an outstanding take on the English IPA. Underrated IMO due to the expectations many have for an American IPA. Subtle.

A 12oz bottle picked up at Brusin Ales in Asheville, NC September, 2014

A - Copper brown, brown sugar color, with 1 finger of head and lots of lace left on the glass

A - Bitter hops and english style malts. Sweet from the barley

T - Hoppy and malty. Definitely an English (UK) style IPA. Extra malty. Bitter finish.

M - Well carbonated and medium bodied

O - A good IPA. I prefer the American style better though

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy dark copper with just a thin white head. Decent lacing, however, and a thin off-white cap on top of the beer.

Aroma is very earthy with plenty of hints of toast and caramel. Some pine and overripe orange as well. Pretty good.

The flavor has more of the piney earthiness expected from an English IPA. Nothing tropical at all about this. Just the slightest hint of fruit but it is more of the overripe variety. Bitterness is moderate to high but not too excessive. Lingering bitterness in the finish with a slight sweetness.

Overall, this is a good, albeit fairly run of the mill, English IPA. Nice earthiness from the hops but lacks a bit of the maltiness complexity found in other examples. All in all a good beer.
