Very hoppy with an odd charred hop taste. Interesting beer to say the least

No body, no finish. Boring.

Good lace which leaves rings with each sip.

Plenty of hop nose. This has an IPA bitterness. The carbonation is elevated.

Described as a cross between an APA and a ESB. Right up my alley.

Pours a amber copper with a white head. Aroma is full of english malts giving off some sweet breed and toffee, hops offer some florals, grass, and mild citrus tones but take second fiddle to the malts. Flavor follows suit. A creamy, medium bodied bouthfeel. Overall, a solid, not complex beer that I enjoyed. Would drink again.
