Poured from a can into a Duvel tulip.

A: A very opaque orangish color with little head and nice lacing. Personally I like cloudy beers because most I've had are very good. This is very accepting for me.

S: A nice balanced aroma of Carmel, grapefruit and pine. Not one overly distinguishing itself from the other. Just enough to have a nice balanced blend.

T. The Carmel/malty flavor sticks out just a little more at first followed by a little bitterness and then a nice piney, slightly citrusy and herbal aftertaste. Well balanced and complex being able to taste all flavors at different times. Very enjoyable and just slightly bitter enough leaving you to want more.

M. Crisp. Not much else to add there.

O. I really am enjoying this beer. While complex it is very balanced and feels nice and crisp in the mouth. Looks nice and inviting. A nice change from the flux of overly fruity IPA's recently which I do love. It's nice to have something a little different. Really digging this beer.

12 fl oz. can, with no apparent canned on or freshness date on the can. A new beer from a new to me brewery, the semi-local Temperance Beer Co. from Evanston, Illinois. Acquired a single can of this stuff as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's. I'm unfamiliar with the brewery, but I have nice expectations per the style.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a hazed, honeyed golden orange body with some fine sediment in the glass. Two to three fingers of thick frothy off-white head. Leaves behind nice thick scattered lacing throughout. Looks very nice.

S - The aroma is very fresh, fruity, and juicy. Bitter and citrusy - grapefruit, pine needles, mango, lemons. Very appealing, but it smells more American than English, if that makes sense.

T - A very nice balance of juicy fruity hops and bready honeyed malts. Grapefruit, mango, pine, lemons, honeyed bread malts. Very delicious.

M - Crisp and delicious; very easy to drink. Mild hop resins clinging to the palate. Medium bodied with nice carb.

Overall, an impressive IPA from this brewery, if maybe a tad more American than English, like I said. Still, I will be sure to check out more from these guys.

Recently received as an extra in a trade from capnmike, and shared tonight. Thanks man!

Pours out a golden orange-ish, with a half inch head, and a solid amount of lacing.

Smells great, there's some citrusy fruitiness that's quite un-English IPA-like, but then there's some nice classic aromas of toasted bread and caramel.

This is well balanced, and really tasty. It's a bit more citrusy than the typical English IPA, like noted above, but I don't really care, because it tastes good. There's some bready malt flavors, along with some earthy, grassy hop flavors buried slightly under the more American hop flavors.

This one is medium bodied, with a very crisp mouthfeel, and a moderate amount of carbonation. It's one of the more drinkable IPAs that I've had.

I'm not sure how this won at GABF for English IPAs, because it doesn't taste traditionally English. Based on taste alone, it certainly qualifies, though.
