Served in a signature Newcastle wellington glass.
Appearance: Very transparent amber almost no bubbles on the body but they are still there with a subtle head that is maybe 1/8" coming off white.
Smell: Raw hop smell, smells less like an IPA and more like a euro lager.
Taste: Lightly bitter, surprisingly creamy. Light light malt makes this one and easy drink.
Mouth: Medium to heavy carbonation, light bitterness still left on the mouth but keep in mind there's nothing new here.
Overall: Good beer, but I wouldn't go crazy looking for it. Has unique taste to it but it's more like a relax beer. If you are new to drinking a quality brew this definitely wouldn't be a bad start. Salud!

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.
