Pours a golden honey color with a tight egg shell colored head that left a small wall of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is bready with some light metallic notes. Reminds me more of an English pale ale. Perhaps a light touch of a flowery hop. Don't get much juniper in the aroma.

Quite bready in the flavor and has lots of honey and toffee sweetness. Very English in the taste. The hops range from apricot sweetness to a grassy bitterness. Again, the juniper doesn't really standout. I really enjoy some of the nordic beers because of the juniper but I cannot really pick it up in this beer. There is a slight fruitiness/spice that I attribute to the juniper but it really isn't much.

Moderate feel with prickly carbonation. Sweet to start but has a nice bitter balance. Drinks well. A touch dry in the finish.

An average IPA. Doesn't live up to its labeling but doesn't really have any off flavors. I was excited to try this as I like juniper in beers but this missed that mark.
