22oz, 4/30/13 Batch 128
Riedel tulip

A: Completely hazy light orange color. More of a yellow orange. Bright white thin layer of head. Sticky lacing. Collar of bright white. Good carbo.

S: Orange peel. Light citrus. Light biscuit like malts. Smells refreshing.

T: Nothing really on the tip of the tongue. Light citrus hop flavor. Lemon and orange. I would say similar to a Wit beer but without the yeast. Thinner malts. Crisp finish. Dry. Refreshing.

M: Light medium bodied.

(Served in a Nonic)
Batch 126
A- This beer pours a murky orange body with a wispy white head that fades to a ring before the first sip.

S- There is a green herbal hop aroma with some unripe citrus hop aromas growing in the finish.

T- The slightly pungent herbal hops take on some piney green hop flavor with a compliment of malt sweetness in the finish. There is a slight caramel malt flavor that comes through in the sweetness and a light spicy hop note that lingers in the aftertaste.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a gentle fizz to it with no alcohol heat noticed.

O- This beer has some nice British hops character with some classic American hop flavors aswell and it is pretty drinkable and mellow for the 7% ABV that is hidden in there.

Pours a hazy tangerine color. Thick white foamy head. Mouth feel is somewhat thick. Faint hints of pineapple & citrus. It certainly does Not hit the palate like a 7 ABV. Thanks for the treat from a very generous trader from the great town of Naperville! Great summer beer that I'll definitely look for in the future.

22oz into a tulip.

A: Pours a murky melon color with a small white head. Not the prettiest beer.

S: Aroma brings fresh grapefruit juice, orange pith, mango. Really juicy and pleasant.

T: Light resiny bitterness, sweet cracker malt, plenty of citrus, a bit bready.

M: Between light and medium-bodied with light carbonation.

O: Not sure why they called this English-style, but it is a really nice IPA.

The bottle defines this as an "English style Summer Ale"

Poured from a bomber into a Pipeworks tulip glass.

A - Pours bright orange with one finger of creamy white head

S - Smells light and refreshing with hints of orange and spice

T - Citrus notes up front, hints of orange and banana. Smooth and easy to drink with a very small hint of bitter hops at the end.

M - Medium bodied with a fine carbonation that makes this very easy to drink.

O - If this was available for the summer in 6 packs of cans, I would be all over it. Very refreshing and easy to drink. I would like to crack a couple of these while hanging out at a BBQ or something like that.
