Stylistically an English IPA. More malty, more grassy and floral than piny and citrusy on the hops...not as hop forward as a west coast IPA. Other than the mislabeling as an American IPA, I kind of enjoy this one. I bought this as part of a twelve pack sampler, and wish there were more than 3 bottles in there of this particular beer.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degree. I expected it to take the top of my head off the way it smelled oozing with big hop smell. It did not. Beer pored a cloudy orange color with a peach colored head. The beer was hoppy as it should be but not too bad. I could drink it and thought it was quite good for a IPA which I'm not very fond of anyway. Lacing was good and I would buy again.

poured a clear copper orange with a one finger white head that dissipated quickly leaving a thin collar with light lacing.

Aroma of light malt, grass with citrus, very light aroma.

Taste of grapefruit, malt, some sweet caramel and vanilla with a slight bitter after taste, very good balance.

Mouth Feel was medium towards light body, moderate carbonation, smooth with a crisp, bitter ending.

Overall an easy drinking, enjoyable and refreshing pale ale.

Served in a Magic Hat pint glass that the owner of "Fox & Parrot" gave me when the wife and I visited Gatlinburg a few years ago.

A: Poured a crystal clear, yet dark orange color, with a big, soapy, 3-4 finger head that looked like shaving cream.

S: Like a pine tree sap. Not horrible, but pretty weird. I got a bit of sourness in there.

T: More like tree bark. Lots of malt, with a bitter slap on the front and back end. As an "English IPA," this might have been successful.

M: Ridiculous lacing, OK carbonation, and not too bitter after a few sips.

O: This is just too weird and it didn't grow on me the way I was hoping it would.
