500ml bottle served in a small tulip.

Appeaqrance: Medium amber with weak head

Hoppier than their The Chief but still only at the level of a modern APA, so English IPA. Lasting, mildly bitter and nicely hoppy aftertaste.

Feel: Medium-light body with medium carbonation.

A 500ml bottle with a BB of Feb 2014. Picked up recently in Booths. Described on the label as a transatlantic IPA brewed with North American and English hops. Yum....

Poured into a tulip pint glass. Bottle conditioned. A bright golden hue with faint haze and light carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before subsiding. Aroma of juicy hops with notes of white grape, melon and citrus, along with a faint hint of fruity tartness that almost calls vinegar to mind. Underpinned by subtle malt and earthy yeast.

Tastes of fruity aroma hops with a crisp bitter finish. Notes of grapefruit, melon, white grape, citrus, earthy yeast, light malt and stewed hops. Well-attenuated, with a strident, dry bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, with pleasant carbonation and decent body for the style. Somewhat astringent, with an aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops and yeast.

Rather nice - a well crafted IPA. Looks good, while the aroma and flavour have a juicy hoppiness that suggests citrus and white fruits. Decent body; the hop oils toy with the palate. A solid effort that is worth your time - pick one up if you see it.

Picked this up at Petite Cellars following a tasting at that site. Poured into a pint glass. Hazy yellow in color, thin head with moderate lacing. Hops aroma of bananas, grass, and pine. Bready but hoppy,, nicely bittered. Appears to be an attempt at an American IPA but lacks the mouth feel, slightly low on carbonation

On tap at The Dandelion in Philly. English IPA poured from the hand pump. Nice and smooth. More bitter and not too hoppy. Easy drinker.

From a bottle, pours a deep gold color with a big frothy white head.

The nose is lots of berry, citrus fruit, and a good bit of flowers, almost like potpourri. There is also faint candied sugar and caramel malt. The flavor is alot of strawberry, raspberry, with a bit of pear and tea leaves. This is pretty tanic, which is disappointing because the fruit and tea leaves makes the citrus disappear.

Overall, this is ok. Drinkable, not worthwhile.

Aroma/ Flavor: Orange peel and grassy hop character. Medium level hop bitterness, light caramel character (4.00)

Overall: Sophmoric name aside, but it's very tasty and I'm a fan.

Pours a hazy,cloudy amber with a small white head. It doesn't look like there's much carbonation.

The smell grassy,biscuits and a little citrusy.

The taste is lemon, grass, herbal, earthy and fairly bitter. Definitely a unique take on an ipa.

The mouthfeel is light with medium carbonation. Easy drinking.

Overall a unique ipa, a cross between British and American styles. I'd probably categorize it as an English ipa though.
