look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from bomber into pint glass

Appearance – The beer poured an amber color with a thick two finger white head. Just like all the other Berkshire beers I have had, the head has good retention with it eventually fading to give a great amount of lacing.

Smell – The smell is sweet with nice lighter hints of hop aroma. The sweet is of honey and a light tangerine. The hop aroma is a nice blend of citrus (grapefruit and lemon) as well as a rather strong floral hop smell.

Taste – The taste begins with a nice bready and lightly sweet flavor. These honey and bready flavors create a backbone for the beer. At the forefront a floral hop flavor is present. While the initial floral hop is light, it is soon met with some citrus and pine hop flavors. These give a nice bitterness that balances the sweet quite well. The beer bitters ever so slightly with the floral hop seeming to get even strong. In the end a rather pleasant floral spice is left on the tongue

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its carbonation level with a thickness that is slightly above average. It suits the floral hop and malty flavors quite well.

Overall –It’s a rather smooth IPA. While if you are looking for something very hoppy, this may not be your brew, but if you are looking for something very easy to drink with some nice flavors, this is a nice brew to go to.
