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.

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!
