I was a little surprised that I liked this one since it is a fairly common and inexpensive beer. It poured a hazy orange color with a slight white head. A nice malty aroma topped this one off. No real hint of the hops was detectable in the aroma. In the initial taste, one gets peach skin notes mingling with the hops. A smooth malty backbone makes this a nice easy drinker. The hops are not too abrasive in this IPA, but are well balanced with the fruit and malts. In the aftertaste, the malt smooths the peach skin into a more modest fruit flavor. A surprisingly potent 6.8% ABV allows a mild warming sensation to be part of the aftertaste. The carbonation was not overly aggressive, making the aftertaste linger. This would be a nice IPA to have with a meal since it is not too complex. The food would not cause you to miss certain nuances of the beer.

A: Pours a hazy orange with a good two finger head. Good lacing down the glass

N: Wow, when handed this beer I could smell the resins and piny hop aromas. I thought immediately that this was an AIPA.

T: A little lacking when compared with the nose, still solid. Flavors of grapefruit, bitterness are present and then knocked aside by malty, bread, yeast flavors.

M: Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Good mouthfeel.

O: Pretty solid, I would get it again depending on the price. I was surprised to see this was an English IPA when as I noted for the nose but the flavor is more subdued as would be expected for an EIPA.

Served in a British nonic. Slightly hazy apricot color. Forms a thick creamy stable head. Leaves sheets of lacing.
Aroma is nearly non existent, but what is there is cracker and toast, with just a hint of hops.
Taste is very mild. Light caramel malts, bread, toast. Very mild herbal hops.
Nice creamy mouthfeel. Moderate bitterness.
A decent beer, certainly better on nitro than from the bottle, but still a fairly average beer.

A rusty orange-red in color with a deep haze all the way through, this beer looks the part and more, showing a depth and substance in the form of a nice, tight, creamy but firm head over a finger tall with very nice retention. The lacing left behind falls in heavy drooping curtains all the way to the bottom of the glass.
The smell is pungent with floral and piney bitterness but with a bit of something like apricot almost leaning toward American. Malts are not quite crackery dry and not quite bready, more like bread crust but working well in this earthier brew. It has a bit of fruity sweetness to it but remains British nonetheless.
I look forward to trying this in the bottle; as it is, some is lost off the nose, including a bit of the fruitiness (though some remains). It's not that it goes anywhere; in the flavor, though, I get a lot more dryness and earthiness. The bitterness becomes more pithy, more akin to dandelion; not abrasive, but a little chalky and woody. Not harsh, but hard, for lack of a better way to describe it.
There's nothing wrong with the feel. It's moderately both crisp and smooth, with active but stable carbonation in a solid medium body.
