The orange and green label is both inviting and festive. Although the initial taste can be bitter and frightening, we learn that the overall feeling is of a quite essential alcoholic necessity. In conclusion, the alcohol percentage was a plus, as well as the foreign aspects of the beer itself. George Hodgson should be proud.

12oz bottle served in a pint glass
A bright but clear copper orange in the glass topped by a finger or so of off white head that falls quickly with some lace. The smell is lemon citrus and grassy hops with some biscuit grain. There is a bit of a metallic character in there as well to round it out near the end. The taste is much like the smell with the lemon floral hops hitting up front and carrying a moderate amount of bitterness throughout. The metallic flavor is there as well but it isn't bad as the malt comes through too but it doesn't quite do enough to balance the hops. Crisp and clean at the finish and lively in the mouth due to a good dose of carbonation and the spiciness of the hops. Overall this is pretty nice as the English IPA is often overlooked and quite different from the more popular American style. The subtle hops combine nicely with the malt to provide a different but satisfying IPA experience.
