3.3/5 rDev -3.2%
A pint glass at the brewpub.
A: The EIPA is coppery, a translucent orange-red color that falls somewhere on the spectrum of a penny. A finger of white head came with the glass and laced in layers as I worked my way through it.
S: The nose is plenty toffee, a sweet malty scent that has a ringwood aspects. The hops, for being an IPA varietal, are nicely restrained.
T: The first sip screams 'England'. The ringwood-like sweetness permeates the ale, a sweet flavor that accentuates toffee notes. The overall sweetness tends to gloss over the hops.
M: The toffee mouthfeel, sweet as it is, loses the hops. The malt body, along with the yeast, is sweet and bready.
D: A decent EIPA, plenty of toffee flavors running around. That sweet yeasty flavor overruns too much of the ale.

Draft offering at Old Forge. The brew appears a cloudy copper with an off-white creamy finget of head. As the cap fades, a wall of lace sticks to the glass with a finger-like stringy pattern.
The aroma is fruity and herbal as expected from the hop inclusion. Some toasty grain lies underneath that mixes with a scent of cheese and rindy pulp character.
The taste is fruity with citrus and pulp in the foreground. Caramel sweetness contrasts the hops keeping it from getting too bitter. A yeasty finish brings out some elements of earth and more aggressive bitterness lasts long into the aftertaste.
This is a medium bodied brew with almosy a creamy feel to it despite a modest to lower level of carbonation. It isnt the best of ipas but it isnt bad either. Worth a try.

On tap at the brewpub.
A-Pours a clear copper with a thin white head and nice lacing.
S-A mild graininess with little hop aroma.
T-Some nice citrus hops but overall the flavor is too sour. Some sweet malt balance would have been nice.
M-Medium bodied and a bit dry.
D-Decent overall. Not one of Olde Forge's best, for me.

Poured from a growler into a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy copper color with a thick fluffy beige head that has staying power and leaves lacing around the glass.
S:Very subtle. Some grainy malt. slight hints of citrus hops, slight bit of caramel, toffee. Slightly minty.
T: The hops shine through. Sweet with a nice hoppy aftertaste. Caramel and toffee are there in the background.
M: Nice, medium body. You can feel the carbonation without the bite.
O: I feel this is a good example of an English IPA. I will buy again.

On tap at Old Forge on 3/14/09.
A - Poured a hazy, modestly carbonated orange copper-colored body with one-finger off-white head that diminished into a patchy veil and produced some decent lacing around the glass.
S - Fleshy fruity hops paired with sweet caramel malt. Some citrus notes are also present, as well as a slight waft of alcohol. Not too pungent in the hop department overall.
T - Not overly hoppy for an IPA, but well-balanced enough in flavor, with sweet caramel malt and toffee notes comprising much of the flavor profile. Hops are mild with a fruity and citrusy character, followed by some perfumy notes in the finish.
M - Medium body with a syrupy texture and moderate carbonation with a slight poppy feel on the palate. Bitterness is subtle overall and hops don't really linger for too long.
D - Pretty good IPA overall, but a bit on the malty side. Could benefit from a beefed up hop presence, but still pretty tasty.
