3.36/5 rDev -0.9%
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.

St. Peter’s India Pale Ale has a medium, soapy, slightly off-white head and a mostly clear (yet, with a descending cloud, when the bottom of the bottle is swished and poured in), orange-gold appearance. The aroma is faint, but one can pick up some light breadiness and a pit of hop zing. Taste is of sweet, mild, white bread and a nicely hopped bitterness, although not nearly as intense as an American IPA. Mouthfeel is medium and soft and slick, and St. Peter’s IPA finishes semi-dry, refreshing, sweet, and ultra-drinkable. Overall, this is a wonderful beer, and I rate it as being most excellent. Check it out!

500ml green bottle into tulip snifter.
Pours a medium brown with faint gold tinges and a thin white head.
Taste and aroma is grassy, faintly floral hops, with some earthy, herbal notes. No bottle dating that I can find, though I suspect this one may be a bit old for the style. Biscuit, malty backing.
Medium body, with average prickly carbonation.
I see the potential in this to be a pleasant, solid English IPA, but unfortunately with no easy way for me to guarantee a fresh bottle it's really not worth the risk, and even fresh I don't know that it would be really anything great.

Poured from a 500ml bottle into a tulip glass, unknown bottled date. This pours a slightly hazy brownish color with a smaller med lived head which leaves a lacing. There is a little green bottle skunk, rubbery smell, lots of malt, little hops. The feel is medium. The taste is okay, you have the skunk funk, some weird bitterness, but not quality hop bitterness followed by some malts.
