A pretty big white head falls into a thinner lacing above this clear honey golden colored beer.

Citrus, floral, and a slight spicy hops aroma with some added light sweet caramel malts.

The floral, citrus and light spicy hops come through balanced with a light almost roasted caramel malt taste.

A hops dry aftertaste on this medium bodied beer.

An IPA on the lighter side of the hops spectrum but still a pretty good drink.

Got this one at Premiere Gourmet in Amherst, NY.

From a bottle into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Pours a small, medium looking, off-white head with decent retention. Head quickly fades to a half wisp and ring. Body is slightly hazy, burnt orange in color and shows no carbonation. A ring remains until the end but leaves no lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Pale malts, toffee and butterscotch notes, candy, as well as some floral hop qualities. Quite English in style.

TASTE: Pale malts, caramel and toffeee sweetness, then notes of butterscotch and floral hops at the swallow. Aftertaste is medium in strength with sweet toffee and butterscotch, as well as some bitter floral notes. Nice stuff.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. Creamy enough on the palate, goes down fine and finishes slightly sticky. Could be a little creamier and smoother for the style, but fine.

OVERALL: This is a decent beer, though it is definitely more of an English style IPA than an American one. If you enjoy the toffee and butterscotch flavors of an English style IPA, this is definitely one worth drinking. If you're in the mood for an American style IPA, pick something else.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a one inch off white head, leaves nice lacing. Smell is bread, carmel, papaya, grass, and pine. Taste is all of that, very much a English IPA the hops and malt hang together, neither dominate. Body is medium, plenty of carbonation, a little dry, and very drinkable. This is a good English IPA, but I am in love American hop extreme beers.

On tap at the brewpub. Nearly clear golden color with a small white head that settles down rather quickly. Some sticky lacing clings to the glass. Aroma is very balanced between bready malt and some piney, moderately citrusy hops.

The taste of this IPA is also very balanced; lightly sweet caramel and bready maltiness props up some pine and citrus hoppiness; bitterness is fairly restrained. This feels very safe and middle-of-the-road for a contemporary AIPA; the hops don’t exactly burst out of the glass and smack you in the face. Finishes dry with a little bit of lingering citrus peel bitterness. To be honest I felt it was a little bland and weakly flavored. Not a hopbomb by any means.

Medium bodied and carbonated, nicely smooth and a bit creamy, good overall mouthfeel. I just felt this was a pretty unexciting, if solidly made, IPA.

A - clear caramel color, no head to speak of... Thus no lacing... Not entirely appealing

S - some flowery hop notes, but big sweet 'caramel' notes hinting that the beer is a bit old (no date on bottle)

T - same sweet caramel notes coming through, probably due to age. There is also some bready malt favors and it finishes with a slight grassy bitterness

M - nothing special here... Mouthfeel is average but does leave a slight burning at the end

O - nothing really special about this beer but it does drink easy
