Pours hazy orange with a decent off-white foam head. Nice sticky lace down the pint.
Terrific nose on this one/ Floral, with honeysuckle and a touch of sour mash. Some good grapefruit rind, but not overly citric. Yeast and toasted malt in the background.
This is a very nicely balanced beer. Toasted malt, some yeast, bread/toast up front with an immediate pop of hops. Resinous hops. Bitterness comes in and builds as the malt dissipates, leading to a long balanced and smooth bitter finish consisting of hops and brown bread crust. How nice is this?
Medium bodied, good solid carbonation.
I'm slowly learning that good English IPA means balance. Damn right. This has it all. Been staring at this one literally for years and never pulled the trigger because it is always $10-$12 for a 1 pint 9 oz bottle. Sometimes you need to pay a little to get something good. This is worth the price. Loved it.

Color- hazy sunshine. Full head.
Aroma- floral, hints of pineapple, and hint of bread.
Taste- a gentle, sublime English IPA. Starts with a hoppiness that balances between mild citrus and floral, then transitions to an effervescent farmhouse ale with notes of earthiness, and finishes with mild lemon-like hops. Has some similarities to a Belgian IPA but with more balanced hoppiness.
Poured from 500 ml bottle into a Liefmans Goudenband glass (my preferred all purpose beer tasting glass). Tasted July 2014. Purchased at Whole Foods in Austin.

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.
