look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: 3/4" creamy white head recedes fairly rapidly with decent lacing. Color is Amber and mostly clear with moderate carbonation.
Aroma: some mild fruit (plums maybe), a little English hop spice, and bread dough
Mouthfeel: just above light body (more so than a standard lager), fairly watery and slightly sticky, with a very dry finish.
Flavor: nice balance of sweet malt, earthy hop spice. Flavors of toasted bread, a little of caramel, maybe a little licorice and some mild fruit (raisins or plums). Also pick up some citrus like orange rind and a slight metallic aftertaste as it warms.
Overall: a very pleasant beer. This seasonal offering from Newcastle is a nice example an English style IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

poured from 12oz bottle to 20oz 'pint' glass...

a: healthy two-finger off white head. crystal clear amber color.

s: sweet, almost cola like. malty, not much hops, if any. not what an american expects from an ipa. lol!

t: if you bought this expecting big hop bitterness and citrusy flavor you will be sorely disappointed. however, if you bought this expecting a fine example of a british ipa then you will very happy. residual sweetness, caramel, rock candy with an underlying bitterness that you would expect in some of the mildest american ambers. slightly floral hop flavor and aroma. slightly...

m: if you pour it right you will be left with a medium-low carbonated brew. lightly coats the mouth but finishes clean. slight bitterness lingers.

o: i like this! i think it's a great session ale with lots of great flavors that is a nice detour out of the sea of american ipa's that try to out wallop the next. too bad it's only around for a limited time, i would certainly drink another.
