4.1/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance
Pours a hazy straw-like colour, active carbonation but doesn't form a massive head, instead a fine white coating on top of the liquid gives way to a ring around the glass

Aroma
Sweet notes of light malts, fresh aromas of citrus fruit, some grassiness and perhaps a touch of wheat in there somewhere. The aroma is distinctive but not overpowering or too weak.

Taste
Starts out very mellow, a little biscuit malt sweetness at the front of the mouth and towards the middle, just when you think it's not going anywhere a touch of bitterness creeps in and builds up to a very surprising but welcome hop peak at the back of the mouth with some of citrus and pine notes. Very well balanced.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied with light but punchy carbonation

Overall
A very good IPA, I've been a little weary of English IPAs of late having developed a taste for the massive American IPAs but this is a great example of what England can do, it's got a good alcohol strength, a pleasant taste with a good hop profile. This is definitely a great savouring beer but would also work well in session quantity.

This beer was a pleasant surprise. I am used to drinking super-hoppy and bitter beers. However, this beer had a nice bit of hops but it was very smooth and very easy to drink. On top of the hops, I also got subtle notes of citrus, pine, and grass. Would definitely want to drink again.
