12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear medium copper with a one finger off-white head. Lacing is just so-so but head retention is very nice with really a solid cap all the way through.
Aroma is full of earthy hops with pine and tree bark. Deep toffee and caramel notes along with a bit of spiciness. Perhaps just a touch of orange.
The flavor really screams English IPA to me in that there is much more malt character and none of the tropical fruit normally associated with American IPA's. Earthy hops complimented by a healthy dose of caramel and toffee from the malt. Bitterness is very high throughout with a mouthfeel that is slightly watery leaving a very light lingering sweetness.
Overall, there really aren't any flaws with this beer but it just doesn't do it for me. I prefer fruitier IPA's in general but this one just seems to be lacking a bit. Decent but not outstanding.
