Served in a Delirium Tremens shaped glass.
A: Poured out a crystal clear, orange-red color with a whopping 2 finger + extremely sudsy frothy off-white head.
S: Smells a helluva lot "Torpedo." However, I did really get the "floral" notes that really put this over-the-top and made it smell downright inviting.
T: Much, much smoother than "Torpedo" and "Celebration Ale" though, but since this is English, that kinda goes with the territory. Nice malt backbone and with a very pronounced floral flavor and only slight bitterness on the finish. Nice!
M: The carbonation was perfect here and definitely allowed the other ingredients to poke through. The bitterness merely slaps the tongue at the very end, with a nice fruity, floral package that was divine. The lacing was ridiculous.
O: Come on, folk! This beer deserves a higher rating than what you're giving it. It seems that English IPAs don't do very well overall here on BA. C'est le vie....
