Beer Review from 11/21/12, on tap at The Lark in East Northport, NY: pours a hazy orange amber color with a small off white head that faded on the fast side, leaving minimal spotty lacing.
Smells of malt, roasted grains, biscuit, caramel, spices, herbs, cardboard and wet wheat bread; very bready and like an English IPA.
Tastes like it smells, with malt, roasted grains, biscuit, caramel, spices like allspice and pepper, herbs like tea leaf, yeast/cardboard, pizza dough, and wet wheat bread; seems to be a cinnamon aftertaste lingering that tastes like wet cardboard and nothing like hops, so this was disappointing even if it is an English-style IPA as there should be some hops present.
Mouthfeel is tart and bitter, with a medium body, average carbonation and a grainy cardboard aftertaste.
This was way too malty to be an IPA as I like them, and a big letdown; even for an English IPA this just had no hop punch and lacked any real balance. Avoid unless you like malty cardboard flavor and bland English IPA’s.

Pours hazy orange amber with a thin head that faded fast and left scant thin soapy lace. Nose is lemon citrus and lots of bread and caramel. Plenty of yeast on the nose for an ipa. Tiny bit of apple and floral as it warms and a touch of spice. Malt sweetness really deepens and opens up well as it warms. Taste is malt, cracker, grain and no real hop palate just an oily coating on the tongue to remind you that they should be in there. Has a yeasty quality and a floral aspect on the palate but it’s short lived and then the malt sweetness is what remains. Medium body with prickly carbonation that leaves a touch bitter with a malty grain aftertaste that is dry. It tasted cooked and and somewhat bland. It’s a very mild ipa that was not altogether unpleasant.

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.
Poured a light copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.
The smell featured a zesty herbal hop and healthy dose of caramel and diactyl.
The taste initially consisted of an earthy burnt caramel, buttery toast and soft diacytl but slowly developed a spicy hop element.
The mouthfeel was typical of the style.
Overall a tasty ENGLISH style IPA.
