Poured a reddish, honey amber color with 1-2 fingers of white head when I got it. Good lacing on the sides and good retention all the way down.
Smelled a weird mix of hops and malts. Resin, grass and herb hops, honey, caramel and roasty malts.
Taste wasn’t anything to be desired. Roasty caramel malts, grass and resin hops and maybe even a bit of rye. Long lasting bitterness on the tongue after.
Medium body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.
I wasn’t too much of a fan of this one. The hop/malt balance didn’t quite work.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured a nice clear amber with one finger of bubbly white head. A good, classic looking IPA. Scents of slight citrus, some tropical fruit and strong aromas of grassy hops. A good hop forward nose, showcasing three nice hop aromas. Flavor begins with a subdued hop bitterness, with notes of citrus pith, grassy hops, pine resin and tropical fruit all backed up with a nice caramel malt backbone. It's a good flavor profile, hop forward without being overwhelming, just well crafted and pleasant. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with moderate carbonation and quite smooth to drink. Very nice, quite similar to other British-style ales. Overall this is a nice English IPA. It doesn't have the incredible hop forwardness of the American IPAs, but it is a well crafted, flavorful, enjoyable beer.
