12oz bottle from six pack poured into a pint glass.

Notched Best Enjoyed Before: May 2015

Appearance - Half inch soapy white head, quickly disappeared. Lots of bubbles streaming from the bottom of the glass. Slightly hazy sunrise gold color.

Smell - Flowery fruity hops with barely any spice and a small amount of earthy grass. Tart grape and apple perfume.

Taste - Buttery biscuit with grape and apple jam, orange rind, and grassy flowers. Very muted caramel malts. Light cinnamon spice and only the slightest tartness on the finish.

Mouthfeel - Crisp light/medium body with prickly and smooth silk. It's the carbonation that prickles the tongue instead of sharp hop spice, so the lasting wetness is great as you don't get a dry carbonated effect like you would with ginger ale. Not dry on the finish.

Overall - I love it, it's a great tasting fruity beer. This IPA lacks any serious spicy hop smell and spicy hop taste, and as this is my first English IPA I don't know if that's normal. Try it if you can.
