look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured chilled in ale glass, shared with buzzlitebeer

A: medium copper color, thin head, decent carbonation
S: aroma is floral, lightly hoppy; a bit of honesuckle
T: honeysuckle; hops more herbal than floral; English hop profile (?), bright notes in the flavor, well balanced; more malty than hoppy; low lovenbond malt

definitely worth having again!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

My bottle is dated 6-04-14 clearly on the back of the bottle.

A - Pours out a slightly hazy golden with a half finger white head that died off relatively fast. Look really carbonated with bubbles streaming up really fast. Leaves great lacing.

S - Smell comes off nutty, piney, grassy, herbal, not sweet and smells dry. No sign of alcohol and not super fragrant.

T - Follows the nose with a nutty, piney, lemony taste, a nice bitter bite, a slight sweetness and a slight bitter bite on the finish. No sign of alcohol and the taste seems to go pretty fast.

M - Highly carbonated, soft full mouth feel, with a high drink-ability.

O - Over all this is a pleasant IPA, which i find more enjoyable the more I drink. Not really super impressive but it still has some great qualities. If you like to try enjoyable IPA's that are not to over the top give this one a try, Cheers!
