4.21/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.

4.06/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Undated bottle at cellar temp into an imperial pint
Aroma flowery
Head large (6 cm), white, creamy with rocks, slowly diminishing into large chunks of foam floating
Lacing good
Body light yellow, hazy, some sediment in bottle
Flavor begins slightly hoppy with no alcohol, no diacetyl, and no malt presence. Ends with a slight bitterness.
Palate light, watery, soft carbonation

This is a nice example of a strong Brit IPA, much weaker than we are used to here in the colonies. If you can find one, a nice change from our usual hop bombs, smooth and easy drinking.

0,5 liter bottle
Had this with a hot chicken curry. Great combo.

First smell from the bottle is citrus and pine. IPA.
Pale golden colour, nice creamy head after a good pour. Clear and good carbonation.
NIce strong hoppy smell, as said, and yet the taste is quite mild in it's bitterness.
Mouthfeel is soft for an IPA, to my experience. Very well balance between crispness and smoothness. Refreshing.
All in all this is a great beer, imo.
Glad to have tried this. It's expensive where i live, but it's worth the experience.
