It pours deep golden with a slight haze into my 16 oz Brooklyn Brewery pint glass. Thin white head which fades quickly, but leaves some decent lacing. Floral and lemongrass aroma. Orangey fruit, too. This beer is medium-bodied has a good malt backbone balancing the hops, but finishes with a nice crisp, citrusy finish. Hopheads may not love this beer too much, but this was brewed in the original English stlye and succeeds in being a fine beer.

Nice little hazy golden color.
The smell is not overly strong to be an IPA but of course with plenty of flowers and hops.
The taste is like any really good IPA. This beer's only drawback is the excessive ABV becuase there are hints of booze in the aftertaste.

look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Nice orange color with a very thin head that goes away almost immediately. I drank it from a TeKu glass which always accentuates the smell, nice floral and butterscotch. Mouthfeel is very thin And finishes quick. Unlike most Americans IPAs don't tend to be my favorite although I really liked this one as it focused on balance rather than the classic "mo hops, mo better" philosophy that many American brewers shoot for.
