Copper red crystal clear appearance with a two finger sized head and lively carbonation. Good head retention and decent lacing. The smell is grassy, musty, and indistinct with a hint of roasted malt, and is is way too faint for an IPA. Taste is also leaning a bit too heavily towards malt. It is nutty, biscuit like, mildly sour with only a medium helping of hops. The hops that are there are also aromatic, citric types, with not much bitterness. Not too shabby for a pale ale or a bitter, but not really in on par with most beers in the American IPA style. Mouthfeel is medium thick with a decent strength. This is a balanced English style pale ale, that makes a good session beer, but lacks that certain oomph to push it over the edge of mediocrity.

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.
A: A slightly cloudy golden with moderate head and retention.
S: Mild notes of hops, pine and citrus.
T: Same as the smell. Mild yet well balanced.
M: Clean and crisp. Goes down easy.
O: A good intro IPA. Not for the hop sadist though. It was the first IPA I ever had and works well in that capacity. Nice to revisit but probably won't buy again.
