From a Growler
I enjoyed this beer in a traditional pint glass. The beer appeared caramel or medium copper in color and was rather clear.
There were 2 fingers of off white head that faded extremely quickly
I found the taste to be a bit too malty sweet for my tastes.
I do notice that this is listed as an English IPA vs. an American IPA and I think the focus on the malt is perhaps indicative of the style..
Either way, I am more fond of Hop pronounced IPA's.
There was an insane amount of lacing left behind in the glass. Among the most I've ever seen.
Aroma is more malt/ caramel and roasted vs. Hoppy floral.
Flavor hits with a burst of malt sweetness.
Strong roasted malt up front that isn't balanced with a big enough hop finish.
Burnt/roasted malt/ dark caramel flavor are predominant.
Not hops or "fresh" hops.
Not nearly enough hop lingering aftertaste.
A bit effervescent and a somewhat lighter mouth feel.
This is a pretty good beer. Frankly I tried it after having a Mama Masala IPA and it really didn't compare too well.
If you're a Hop freak, you should look elsewhere. If you enjoy a bit sweeter milder IPA, give it a shot.
