3.55/5 rDev +1.7%
Slightly hazy golden color with a thin head with low retention, but leaving laces.
Aroma of papaya, herbal and a bit of English hops, white bread, orange citrusy and pears.
Crisp flavor of citrus, figs, herbal and some earthy hops, and pears. Hints of oranges. Warming up becomes more English, and sorry to say that, but actually one burps English beer. Dry and bitter aftertaste, with a distant acidity.
An American interpretation of an English IPA, but besides of the US citrusy and a soft tartness, it ended up with milder flavors than the original reference.

3.16/5 rDev -9.5%
No discernible dating on this bottle. If it is this beer is any where near the years listed on the label, it's vinegar...
Pours a hazed amber with a thumb of cream colored head. Never cleared up, good head retention & above average lacing
S: Pears, figs, no hint of hops other than some woodyness
T: Follows the nose, woody hops & mineral dryness, also leafy hops up front. More figgy notes , leafy & woody hops, figs & pears as this warms. Finishes dry & fruity & more like an ESB, some mineral dryness
MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, decent balance
I like the concept, had a few burton IPAs over in England; this just seems like a very muted version, drinkable, but not worth buying

3.99/5 rDev +14.3%
Appearance: amber; effervescent; medium off-white frothy head, long lasting, decent lacing
Smell: biscuity malt; orange peel; some piney notes
Taste: juicy malt with a quick bite of citrusy hops; finishes slightly dry with a lingering grapefruit dryness
Mouthfeel: creamy; medium bodied; added minerals noticeable while drinking
Remarks: very smooth and balanced; not in your face hop bite, but enough to know it's an IPA without overwhelming the maltiness
