Pours a clear, golden draught with about a 1/2" worth of head. The aroma is a good balance of sweet malt and floral hops. The taste is surprisingly smooth for such a high alcohol beer. Dominated by a very pleasant hop flavor, but with enough underlying malt for balnce. Medium-light bodied , with a crisp dry finish. Very nice.

Had this in the cask version at the “Papago Brewery”, which I’m glad to say I will be visiting again this coming weekend. The pour is deep amber with a prestigious head that is light and creamy in texture, brilliantly white in color and the lace thick clinging sheets, impressive to say the least. The floral aromas meet you half way to the glass, lemon peel like crispness, and a nice underlying hint of malt. Semi-sweet start, the top middling in its feel. Finish perfectly hopped, crisp and spicy but not overpowering and the carbonation mild with a nice pleasantly dry aftertaste, a real treat I must say.

This one had a mild-mannered head, but great lacing. and the color. Wow. Copper smell was beat down. Very intense citrus/pine/floral all rolled up. Given the hoppiness in the smell, that there was a touch of sweetness was a --welcome--surprise. Make no mistake, though. This beer is a hop monster. I do want to say, however, the hops aren't crazy off-the-charts. The pine and floral reall kick through and the bitter finish turns to drying. Nice creamy, medium body on this one. As for drinkability, I'd actually prefer the HopKnot over this, but I'm still giving this a high score, b/c hopheads will really enjoy it.

A: Dark orange almost copper with a thin 1 finger head.. Leaves decent lacing..

S: screams english ipa.. Caramel.. Peach.. faint citrus.. Lots of english hops.. Faint sweet toasty malt.

T: english hop bitterness.. Smooth caramel.. A slight lemon zest.. Finishes with a peachy like puckiness that leaves your mouth dry.. As you pucker an orange peel like bitterness comes through.. Apricot comes through as brew warms..

Mf light medium.. Good carbonation..

D: easy drinker.. Very nice brew.

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.
