Part of my Up Rising at Novare Res.

Pour into a britis stine.

the beer is pale golded and hinter of amber. The head is frothy and sticky white.

the nose is sweet and earthy, classic EIPA. There are hints of orange marmalade genaric floral hops.

The Taste is great maly sweet to start but the orange and earth hops punch thorugh an make a wonderfull flavor. I'm not sur why this beer is rated a 70. After looking at the top EIPAs I dont see a 4 aside from Three Floyds( hyped no doubt).

Overall a great beer

As a huge fan of IPAs, I have to say I was pretty disappointed by this beer. Not a great hop presence, the dominant flavor was a sort of dry, smoky malt flavor that just felt very out of place in an IPA.

Appearance: Decent. A nice strong looking amber, very transparent. The head was definitely a little foamier than most other IPAs I've had, but the lacing was good.

Smell: Not a whole lot of hops in the smell which was my first indication that the St. Peter's wasn't what I was looking for. Sort of a subdued fruity smell.

Taste: In my personal opinion, not very good at all. Super malty, especially for an IPA. Very little hoppiness, and didn't have the spicy kick you usually get with beers of this style. Sort of old-fashioned tasting, which some people might appreciate, but I found it very off-putting. Tasted a lot more like a Scotch ale.

Mouthfeel: Not great. Very dry, not a lot of body to it. Emphasized the smoky elements of the malt flavor.

My opinion of this beer may have been tainted by the fact that I was looking for a more modern, American IPA and this wasn't it, but you should definitely be warned that this is pretty far from what most people think of when they think of an IPA. Not an awful beer necessarily, but perhaps a little misleading.
