3.78/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured in to a tulip with a 1/2 finger copper head. Lightly hazed copped body.

Aroma is pretty minerally. Some mild, earthy and floral hop aroma. Maltiness and light caramel aroma also come through. Light metallic notes as well.

Flavor was pretty nice. Much better than the aroma lead to be. Nice amount of fruity/floral hop flavor in the middle with a bittering finish that lends a light spicey note. Some mild caramel flavors with a biscuity maltiness. Light sweetness in the back to help balance it out. No signs of ABV.

Mouthfeel had a medium body with a medium/high carb. Dry finish that help accentuate the hop bitterness.

Overall it was tasty. Pretty nice example of an english styled IPA. Definitely didn't have the over-the-top West Coast approach but the flavor and bitterness still let you know it was an IPA.

3.68/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Nice english IPA of a hazy orange/ocher color that goes to a yellowish tone in the corners of the glass. Foam is ok.
Smell and taste are full of citrus, specially lemon, orange and grapefruit. Pear and apple tones also appear and that makes this beer quite juicy. Maltiness, bitterness and hoppines are at an ok level but could be higher, specially maltiness.
Body is ok too. Didn't enjoy the mouthfeel too much because of the acidity that comes in corners of the lips.
