look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12oz bottle (best before 08/13/14) served in a shaker pint glass.

Appearance: Starts off with a chill haze and then goes clear. Clear bright amber. Thin white head that dies back to a very thin skin. Small amounts of fine strand lacing.

Smell: Herbal, floral, fruity. Fruit notes have a hint of peach to them.

Taste: Nice contrast of hops & bitterness with bread-like malt sweetness. The hop flavors have orange and lemon notes, along with a hint of mint. Very nice.

Mouthfeel: Light carbonation, little bit sticky, little bit spicy.

Overall / Drinkability: Very drinkable - I wish I had another one as this one got finished quickly in a pairing with vegetable Tikka Masala. Overall, a full flavored English IPA.

Serving type: bottle
