Poured from a can into an Imperial Pint.

This beer came highly recommended by Geno, of Geno's Fine Wine and Spirits in Elgin, IL (dont let the name, or the appearance fool you, this is a serious craft beer store) I managed to pick up a six pack for the fourth of July weekend to give Temperance a shot.

A: Pours a hazy copper with golden accents. Lets plenty of light through, but is hazy enough to prevent a 'look through'. One finger of pillowy, creamy, off white head with zero pitting. Slowly fades to a thin cap leaving soft lacing along the way.

S: Mild, soft hops, piney, citrus peel, ruby grapefruit, with a mellow malt underlay. Aromas mesh very well with one another.

T: Once again, very mild and smooth. Piney hops that don't wreck your palate, but present enough to let you know you are drinking a IPA. Closely followed by sweet bready malt. Nothing to crazy here, just a very balanced, refreshing taste.

M: Easy carbonation, medium body... very APA like, leaves a nice thin coating over the tongue. Finishes with a lingering sweet and dry sensation.

O: Quite pleasantly surprised. This is a very good beer, one which I would most certainly drink again. Nothing extraordinary, but a very flavorful, balanced, enjoyable beer. Kudos.

12oz can, undated, poured into a Black Three Floyds Rastal Pint Glass.

The beer pours a soft, light amber, straw color, hues of gold and copper with a hazy complexion. Atop the beer rests a soft, billowy, white head, about 2 fingers high that has nice retention and leaves a nice network of soapy lace behind. The aroma is pleasant, soft bitter hops, piney with light grapefruit, a fair amount of noble character, earthy and green before a large amount of bready malt comes across, sticky but crusty. The flavors are nice, plenty of bitter hops, earthy and piney with the same noble character that the nose suggested. Lots of bready malts and caramel sweetness finish up the flavors, but the beer certainly remains bitter and not overly sweet at all, very fine balance. The mouthfeel is nice, it coats well, has nice carbonation, not too lively, very creamy at times, nice lively feel and the finish is soft but a lightly dry sensation lingers well.

Verdict: A very nice English style IPA from Temperance. The flavors are balanced well, a nice hop character is showcased and the malts aren't too sweet. It's a bit heavier in terms of flavor profile than many of the hop forward American IPAs so it doesn't seem to be as refreshing, but still a very enjoyable beer.
