4/5 rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Served at 53 degrees Fahrenheit
Appearance: Amber with a large initial head that dissipates and leaves minor lacing on the glass
Smell: minor apple and honey smell alongside the hops
Taste: citrus flavors, slight honey flavor, apples, and of course the flowery hops
Mouthfeel: smooth, slightly malty, medium-full bodied with the finish of hops
Definitely something to try if you like Sierra Nevada or Rogue Dead Guy Pale Ale. It is very smooth and flavorful. I am unsure where this is sold (or if it is) in the USA. This bottle was brought to me from Edinburgh, Scotland.

500 mL w freshness date. Poured into a pint glass, produced a nice huge white head, good retention and really solid lacing. Colour is a bright amber gold, slight carbonation. Really good looking beer.
Smell is a pleasantly sweet maltiness, combined with a slightly herbal hoppiness. Some grapefruity citrus and mineral notes. There is quite a bit of underlying complexity, but you have to work at it, doesn't jump out of the glass.
Taste is an initial mineraly hoppyiness with a bit of an underlying floral note. Some sweet citrus, malt is pretty tired and in the background. Roast bread. Maybe a light floral aspect, pretty good at constraining the sweetness. Some interesting flavours develop. Finishes quite full, subtle citrus pine, more malty.
Mouthfeel at first feels overly light, but has a nice light sweet body, a bit sticky on the finish but altogether crisp. Quite refreshing and highly drinkable.
This develops interesting, wasn't thrilling initially, but afterwards it has much more richness and more complexity going on. Really nice to drink though, good session ale. A nice example of an english IPA that has some cool things going on.
