A: Very good. Pours a clear yellow-orange with a great head and lacing. Overall, quite good.
S: Just OK. I prefer the American hops to the British ones, but the latter are still good. Very bitter and somewhat resiny flavor. Lemon and milder citrus flavors.
T: Just OK. Lots of lemon peel. Unlike in other British IPA's and pale ales, however, the malt is somewhat muted. I don't detect the lightly-kilned caramel and amber malts. Somewhat disappointing.
M: Just OK. Very light-bodied.
O: A good beer but I was disappointed at the lack of malt presence. Usually the British pale ales and IPA's have a stronger malt backbone. I taste the British hops in this beer but the malt is sadly not present.

Poured out a deep copper/light brown, decent head that left a bit of lacing.
Definitely a bit of fuggle type hops, the pine-y citrusy kind. Not overly pungent.
More balanced than bitter. Definitely a bit of caramel and toffee in the malt body with a touch of bitterness. A little bland, but tasty none the less.
Pretty rich body, a bit syrupy.
Its decent but nothing special, not my favorite style.
