Picked up growler today since they didn't want to fill Scarlet Fire (why? No explanation given). 25 minutes after ordering, finally tracked my growler down sitting in front of some other dude down the bar. They need a new growler filling process / line.

Pours with nice 3F of soapy off white head over a very clear copper body. No carbonation flowing up. Great lacing.

Aromas are very perfumey. Lilac, herbs, citrus... Soft and aromatic.

Flavors follow suit - lots of floral going on. Rose bud, English bitter hops, herbs, and touch of tropical fruit sweetness. Good carbonation makes for a smooth mouthfeel, and highly drinkable IPA.

An English IPA with depth / balls.

Pours a hazy orange amber color with strong dense cap of off-white froth. Scent brings floral, grassy and herbal hops along with a bitter malty backbone. Taste brings a decent amount of hops in the grassy/floral/earthy/herbal range and malts in the biscuity/nutty relm. Medium bodied, nice cask pour body. Decent but unremarkable IPA.
