3.53/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Single from Before You Go Liquors.

It pours a slightly hazed golden orange, slim and tight cap of foam on top. A ring of lacing sticks around the edges. Light visible carbonation. Looks good.

Smells pretty malty, with a floral and earthy scent from the hops. Not especially pungent, but in line with the milder English style of IPA.

Creamy feel, mild hop bitterness, earthy and floral character again. Somewhat buttery, not sure if that's really a hinderance or not. Seems to fade behind a dominant floral hop flavor, and biscuity malt. A little fruitiness would be a good compliment here, but there is none. Earthy aspirin briefly in the aftertaste, with more perfumy florals and mild bitterness. Overall it's good for what it is, but not one i'd seek out.
