Appearence: A new penny copper body sits beneath a foam, sturdy white head. The body itself seems damn near dead, with just tiny hints of carbonation. It's a little too clear, and it seems dull. The head is beautiful on the other hand.
Smell: The smell is a very interesting and highly balanced mix of bold European hops and earthy malts. The only problem is I can barely smell it. I have to spin it like crazy and get my nose right down in there to even get a scent.
Taste and Mouthfeel: Very "hippie" if you will, with a whole lot of earthy and floral notes. Everything is balanced nicely, with excellent hop bitterness, without being too much. Really a great tasting example of an older styled English IPA. The mouthfeel is a little light, but not horribly so.
Drinkability and Overall: Looks a little dead, smells a little weak, but goddammit does it taste sweet. I really dig the way this stuff tastes, and is definitly one of the best tasting American produced, English styled Inda Pale Ale. If you want an easy drinking, well balanced brew, look no further.
