Don't use my rating as a barometer... I don't usually care for IPA's.

Look- nice, golden brown IPA.. Solid head that dissipates after a bit.. Lacing covers throughout, good looking. Smell- nice, pine, a bit typical for the style. Taste- good, you pick up the floral notes.. More bitter than my favorite IPAs.. Strangely, comes off a tiny bit watered down toward the end of the glass. Feel- a bit of a dry finish. A good, not great IPA.

12oz bottle in a stemmed tulip glass.

A- Poured a slightly hazy golden-orange color with a 1-plus F head, off-white in color, and hung around, leaving lots of web lacing.

S-Rich malts and floral hops. There's generous citrus hop aroma to serve as a reminder that it's an American made E IPA. A note of sweetness from the alcohol. Very robust.

T- Malty with floral and spice hop flavors. The bready taste comes first. It's quite clean and very well balanced. The flavors blend.

M- Generous malt body with a touch of alcohol strength. Medium feel overall. Some hop bite but generally dry on the end.

O- A very good beer. As an E IPA, it has extra citrus flavors that aide its drinkability and enjoyment. Yum.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a SAM ADAMS pint glass. (and in subsequent reviews into tulips and others. This beer is consistently solid E IPA. Must try.

A: Pours clear, bright amber, apricot color with a thin white head that fades pretty fast but laces moderately.

S: The aroma is classic English IPA and MUCH better than Brooklyn East India. It balances fruity and malty with the hops in background.

T: The taste is oustanding, and it follows the fruity malt smell, but then transits into floral hops bitterness. The balance gets better as it warms. Fantastic finish. Refreshing, juicy, yet dry. Almost salty, definitely a sea beer.

M: Smooth and very crisp, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, very clean finish. Very creamy yet dry, great mouth feel.

D: Very tasty, keeps you coming back for more. Great food beer, great E IPA. One of the best.
