look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A good old fashioned type beer that is solid enough but better IPA's out there

aroma: spicy-citrus-malt

taste: spicy-citrus-malt but gets a bigger malt flavour and a greater richness once it warms up. Also has some hints of dark fruit when it has warmed up

nice enough but have had better. I Like a good malty English IPA but this one lacked something in the aroma and flavour.

3.59/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy, and dark gold. Hoping the haziness is due to dry hopping and not something else. The white head is tightly beaded and smooth at first, but pops and melts into a faint film in less than 30 seconds.

Smell: Refreshing citrus and floral hops, with toasted malt not far behind. Honeyed bread comes forward as the beer warms, as does some diacetyl, which is acceptable for the style.

Taste: Medium bitterness lingers into the finish, but does not overpower the malt, which starts out roasty on the tongue due to the bitterness, then dies down to reveal a grainy, buttered bread character. The layered malt tastes are interesting, but the amount of diacetyl verges on being too much, even for this style. Still, I declare this beer to be tasty, for sure!

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Smooth, yet well carbonated. Dry finish, but not astringent. Excellent at first, but as the beer warms, the diacetyl makes itself known in the mouthfeel as well. A slick, butter-coated feel distracts and detracts.

Overall: A beer I'd have again. Tasty, toasty, and enjoyable. Still, the bitterness could be more pronounced for the style, and the diacetyl is this close to being a fault. It lends itself to the beer to a point, however, giving off a cozy, buttered toast impression.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pretty amber. Quickly dissipating head. Very light lace remains.
Smell: Biscuits, honey, very light citrus.
Taste: Floral, malty, hint of citrus, and slightly bitter aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Bittering carbonation.

This is certainly an unusual one. It's different than any English IPA I've ever had. In fact, it tastes more like a German lager to me. It's enjoyable, but I wouldn't give it to someone wanting an EIPA experience. However, there is no question that the most wonderful thing about this beer is the gorgeous, flask-shaped bottle that contains it. I probably won't get it again.

3.36/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a perfect pint.

4.0 A: Clear light orange color. One and a half fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and tons of lacing is left behind.

3.5 S: This is a weird one. Instead of hops taking the stage, there's a strong mineral component with a secondary lemon. Under that you find earthy and herbal hops. A touch of caramel, toastiness, and grainy malts. Not bad.

3.25 T: The taste also makes me question whether this is really an IPA. It's only mildly bitter without much hoppiness otherwise. The focus is again mineral and light fruits. Toasty, grainy malts and caramel.

3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy.

3.25 D: Good enough and hits the spot if you are in the mood for something English.
