Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Home2Suites "pint" glass. Beer is cloudy and hazy and golden amber in color with a rocky yet slightly thin white head of about one finger in size. There is some decent retention and the lacing is quite substantial.
Aroma has a bit of Lemon pledge in it. Floral and fruity with some maltiness, which I dont mind. Solid malt backbone without being too sweet or caramelly or cloying.
Flavor gamut runs the same as the aroma, pretty much. Love the bitterness. More fruity than anything; less citrus or earthiness. I like the change of pace. Most IPAS are overly citrusy or piney but this one lies on the fruity/floral side, which I like. Bitterness is very well in check without being too cloying. Very nice indeed.
Perhaps I have palate fatigue from all of the heavily hopped West Coast and piney IPA's that this one was a welcomed changed. Very well balanced, easily drinkable, not too English. Suits me well at the moment.
