From notes on 03/21/12:
Bottle code: 0042 B2 0343; Poured in a pint glass.
A - Just over an inch of off-white fluffy head with good retention; Clear appearance with a deep copper color; Some scattered lacing left behind
S - Nice balance of earthy, herbal, and floral hops with toasty, sweet caramel, toffee, and biscuity malts
T - Very toasty flavor up front accompanied by sweet caramel and biscuity malts, with good balance provided by leafy/earthy, herbal, and lightly spicy hops; Very light bitterness presence; Leafy hops begin to stand out more towards the end of the taste with just a bit of lingering sweetness and bitterness
M - Good amount of carbonation; Medium bodied; Fairly dry finish leaving a light oily, hoppy coat on the tongue
O - I'm not one to try too many English IPA's, but this one is a quality offering for the style and has me thinking I should try a few more. I really enjoyed the taste of 100% UK Fuggles, which didn't steal the show, but had enough of a presence to work well with the light bitterness and overall toasty, malty flavor. I wouldn't mind trying this brew again when I'm in the mood for another English IPA.

No born on date.
Purchased on vacation at Wine Cheese & More at Chincoteague Island, VA.
Golden orange in color with a mounding 3 finger white head that recedes leaving almost snowflake-like lacing.
Pleasantly citric with a sweet malt backbone.
Disappointing. A bit of sweet malt and a hint of citrus, but it's all overshadowed by a harsh, nose scrunching bitterness. I think this first bottle, at least, is past it's prime.
Light to moderate in body with moderate syrup and a slightly harsh, oily burn in the throat,.
When I uncapped the bottle and took my first whiff, I thought uh-oh, this may be a skunk, but the aroma in the glass was much improved. The taste however, confirmed my earlier suspicions. Not a taste I would want to pay for again, but I'll have to give it another chance, and hope for a fresher bottle.
