Haven't been drink or rating (full rating) as much as usually so I figured I should start back up again.

Bought on sale at Morgans Liquor in Denver, poured into an imperial pint glass.

A&S: Fizzy white colored head with large bubbles incorporated into a general foam. Pours about a finger and above average lacing upon first sip. Head dies very quickly, but retains at a thin layer. Transparent and lively light orange colored beer. The aroma is more citrus than the taste would make it seem like it would be, but definably contains a good amount of maltiness.

T&M: More malty than your run of the mill IPA on the market. Other tones include caramel and slight citrus and piney elements. Almost has a rye like bitterness to it. This beer seems more like a hoppy amber, but I suppose that is part of the English IPA style. Pretty bitter in the finish. Carbonation is on the high side of medium and body is medium.

Overall: I've had this beer before, but I guess I never rated it. Not a bad beer, I think part of the reason for the lower BA score is due to palate being use to American style IPAs, at least I found myself thrown off at first.
