look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Southampton Publick House pint glass. Bottled 10/4/13. so 7 weeks old at this point. Bought at Whole Foods Newport Beach CA for $8.99 for a six pack.

A - A dark honey orange. Eggshell head leaves excellent lacing.

S - Muted orange, peach, and a little cat piss from the hops. A little caramel malt.

T - The hop flavors follow the nose with that soft (not so bitter) finish that comes from fresh hops. There is a nice caramel/bready taste in the background. The finish drys out, but leaves just a hint of sweetness.

M - Medium with a nice creamy mouthfeel. Perfect for a great ale. Carbonation is medium to fit the creamy body.

O - Only slight flaw is the nose, but that is inherent in fresh hop ales. Taste is spot on with a nice balance between hops and malt. Not a hop forward west coast IPA, but a tasty one.
