A: Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a beercan-shaped pint glass. The beer is a light brownish akin to oak and possesses a medium haziness that doesn't render it totally opaque, but gives it a nice texture. The head was off-white, 1-finger thick, and constant throughout the drink. Nice lacing.

S: Immediate impression of this beer on the nose was akin to that of a lager: malt-forward with very little hop aromas. Coriander, french toast, orange, caramelized malts, barley, and a hint of hop bitterness are all found in the aroma. It is not a wholly unappealing aroma, but if I were to blindly whiff this beer, I would peg it as anything but an IPA.

T: There is a lot of bread in this, with oats and barley up-front, and a yeasty finish. Aftertaste is dry and a bit floral, with a slight sediment flavor. It tastes a bit like the earth, with some dirt, grass, and bark flavors in there. Other flavors include pumpernickel bread, allspice, a hint of cloves, some leather, and a dry, dirty aftertaste.

M: Crisp and crunchy in the mouth, with a well-defined feel. The swallow and afterfeel are notably bitter, with a hollow tannin feeling that sets into your jaw. This is the only part of the beer that truly resembles an IPA.

O: For an English-style IPA, it's quite good. If I was rating it as an all-around IPA, however, it would be middling. A nicely-constructed beer, with obvious care and good concepts, but as far as styles go, English IPAs just aren't my thing I guess. (1,476 characters)

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy orange with tall, long lasting, fluffy white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of piney hops and bready malt. Body is medium and crisp. Earthy hops dominate the palate, while caramel malt and ripe fruit provide support. Finish is long, dry, and very bitter. Excellent brew. (301 characters)

Grapey sweetness, heavy malting, some solid bittering hops: a pretty good example of an English IPA. (100 characters)

500 ml bottle poured into an oversized wine glass

A: Pours a clear deep gold with big fluffy white head

S: Smell is interesting and pleasurable. If you are looking for citrus hop profile you wont find it in this beer. Instead it smells floral, with notes of hay and grass.

T: Bitterness all the way through, but not resinous or oily. notes of the aroma linger on the finish.

M: Medium body medium carbonation

D: I could drink a lot of this. welcome alternative to the standard citrus and pine hop bomb IPAs from the states. (529 characters)
