3.53/5 rDev +8.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Amber color with a one finger thick head with medium retention and leaving some laces.
Light aroma of English hops with fruity citrus notes and bready malt.
Similarly, bitter flavor of English hops (Fuggles as announced), notes of earth, grapefruit, tea bags, caramels and hint of herbs. Quite dry and bitter aftertaste.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
This is definitely a traditional English IPA, don’t expect a kick ass hoppy American IPA. Though, interestingly its hops intensity seems to increase over time, rather than the opposite. Also, one can learn how to easily identify Fuggles hops

3.26/5 rDev +0.3%

A- Poured an orange-gold with a creamy white head. Head had great retention and lacing, aided by a steady stream of carbonation.
S- has an almost ESB smell, with light biscuit and fruit malt notes. I detected almost no hops.
T-again, more towards the ESB/pint of bitter than anything resembling an IPA, in either the US or England. Not a bad flavor (not mind-blowing) but it's not anywhere near an IPA.
M-thinner and lacking in the resiny feel of most IPAs
O-it's not a terrible beer, in and of itself, but it falls copmletely short as an IPA.

On tap in a pint glass.
A- Golden amber color with a 1-plus finger white colored head. Clean carbonation. Some sticky lacing.
S- Hoppy, citrus and earthy. Light malts. Pine.
T- Citrus start to finish. English biscuits and dry reads.
M- Chewy and tangy. Held back by that buttery thing.
O- I am a bit surprised by the low ratings. As an English IPA, it holds up ok for me. Drinkable and the right abv.
