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.

Poured a beautiful light copper with great clarity and a two finger, hefty cream top. It faded fast though and left a thin filmy swirl of white. Thin wall of sea foam lacing.

The aroma is mild with loads of grassy elements. A nut and caramel mix balance out with a prominente malt presence. Good balance, but a little sweet smelling for an IPA.

Nicely balanced for an IPA. A definitive caramel backbone with hints of vanilla and maple...even tones of honey but a balance appears of floral boquets. Honeysuckle, clover, fresh cut grass, spring...but nice caramel, honey undertones. Balcne is great!

Medium bodied, crisp, refreshing...cutting, edgey...

Overall, great, a little too easy to drink and slightly dangerous.

A: Poured from a bottle w/ best by date 1/2/12 into a mug. Light orange color with 1.5 fingers of head.

S: Some citrusy hops, mainly grapefruit, followed by some toasty malts.

T: Not what I was expecting from the nose. Strong malt backbone right up front that really dominates the entire brew. Toasty from the middle through the end. Some grapefruit in the middle followed by some bitterness but it's really overwhelmed by the malts.

M: Light to medium mouth feel with a long finish.

O: Not a bad brew by any means, just not was I thought an IPA was going to be. Would I drink it again, sure, but I wouldn't recommend it as good example of an IPA.
