look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - poured with one finger of white foam on a clear, golden amber body. The head settles quick, but leaves good lace.

S - light toffee malt and some spicy hops.

T - toffee malt up front with some red apple and orange hops in the middle. Finishes with caramel and balanced bitterness.

M - medium body, moderate carbonation, and a balanced finish.

D - nicely made, not particularly english, but very drinkable.

Serving type: on-tap

In my opinion, this beer is a bit heavier than what others say. It's a dark amber color, still a bit translucent with decent lighting. As far as the taste goes, it's a bit hoppier than what I usually like, but still flavorful enough to keep me interested. Though hoppy, it doesn't diminish the aftertaste too much. Overall a solid IPA.

Nice creamy head in the imperial nonic glass. Plenty hoppy but definitely in the English style of IPA. Hops are woodier and fruitier. Bitter aftertaste but not so pronounced as typical American IPAs. Cellar temp shows off the hops. Fruit flavors include something like pomegranate and a touch of grape skins. Dark amber with a touch of copper.

Nice nose and a warm flavor profile. Watery body but a malty mouthful. On tap at the Four Peaks restaurant and pub in Scottsdale.

A-transparent amber with a thin foamy cream colored head

S-smells like peaches and hops. smells good, but unfortunately too faint.

T-comes in with an extremely mild taste of malts and some creamy hops. turns in to a matching after-taste. nothing terrible, but one of the most boring IPAs i've ever had. there is some slight peach flavor. i'm actually not getting too much bitterness either.

M-medium carbonation with a dry finish

O-definitely a boring IPA but at the same time very easy to drink. it didn't go down too quickly, but it did go down enjoyably. it just may not be a good IPA for hop heads.

Had on tap at Twin Peaks brewery.

Pours a clear copper color with a slight head. Very little head retention.

A sweet fruit nose orange or maybe peach.

Medium body beer with slight carbonation. Malt and fruit sweetness off the top. Finishes dry and bitter.

A true English IPA if I were any judge.

Light amber with a fair head and poor retention. Earthy grassy aroma with a touch of caramel. Drinks pretty much the same with a notable bitter back end from the bittering hops. On the dry side with medium, leaning light, body and a good amount of carbonation.
