Lots of malt and burnt brown sugar up front, plenty of hops at the backend. Drinks at two extremes, sturdy, big presence across the board. Good looking beer, coppery with a big long-lived head. Plenty of lace. Nose dominated by malt and sugar.

Alright, bit too biscuity, hops are present but leans towards malt.

Got this bottle at the LCBO this past summer.

From a 275ml bottle into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, medium looking, off-white head with good retention. Dark, burnt orange with next to no carbonation. Head fades to a thin film. A splotchy wisp remains leaving some dots behind.

SMELL: Toffee, butterscotch, some bubble gum and light floral notes. Bold enough for sure.

TASTE: Follows the nose. Toffee, butterscotch with light floral bitterness at the swallow. Bold aftertaste with malty sweetness, caramel, toffee, floral notes and some well measured bitterness lingering at the swallow. This is a well balanced English IPA for sure.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes dry on the palate. Good feel. Creamy and full for the style.

OVERALL: This is actually a really good English style IPA, with the malty sweetness of an ESB and more lingering bitterness after the swallow than your average English bitter. Really well balanced, well executed, and flavorful all around. Good beer and recommended to fans of the style.

A beer that used to be one of my favourites before the current crop of American-style IPA's were released in Ontario. Had almost forgotten about this malt-forward brew after the Duggan's brewery closed, but pleased to grab a sample from the local LCBO. Amazing how the world has changed.

Pours a beautiful amber with decent cappuccino coloured head and lacing. This bottle has caramelized malts in the aroma along with an oxidation and metallic smell that I do not remember from earlier draught pours. Although the bottle was only purchased this afternoon, no idea how long it has been on the shelves or how it was stored.

Sweet flavour of caramelized malts followed by a decent hop bitterness, but few of the citrus or tropical fruit elements that I hope for in an APA. Finish lingers for an impressively long time.
