3.86/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Served on cask in Philly. smell is all resony hops, taste has some notes of caramel bread. A lot of raw hop oils on the finish. A tasty hopped up IPA with a strong balance of caramel, grainy malts. Enjoyable, would have it again to dig a little deeper.

I picked this up at Wegmans, poured chilled from the 12oz bottle into a mug.
the color is medium amber with great clarity and thick white head with fine bead. The lace clings in rings on the glass with very good retention. The smell is faintly fruity with a slight meaty smell of yeast with toast in the background, not much in the way of hop aroma. The feel is very good, moderate bitterness and carbonation mellow sweetness with semi-dry finish and low alcohol influence.
The taste is good which is a surprise based on the smell- mix of sweet caramel with a light yeast up front leads to more of an herbal hop taste with slight fruitiness which seems to blend the hop and yeast flavors with a mild spice element in the finish. Overall this is pretty drinkable, could use more hop flavor than just bitterness, but considering it is an English IPA it is better than most of the style

4.21/5 rDev +11.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
12 oz. bottle purchased in the greater Philadelphia area (gifted from Mark Graves, thanks!), unknown bottling date, poured into my DFH Spiegelau/IPA glass, drank on 1/21/14 over 30 minutes.
A: 3/3 - copper-brown coloration; impressive clarity (can both read and see through); frothy white head on initial pour settles into a 1/2 finger carbonation; moderate alcohol legs (as expected for 7.0% ABV)
S: 10/12: a nice British admixture of citrus, herbal/grassy and noble hop aromas; there is a nice admixture of biscuity, bready malt aroma; moderate alcohol notes
T: 17/20: on the front of the mouth, there is a mild hop bitterness that quicks develops into a subtle Marris Otter breadiness with some citrus and herbal/grassy hop flavors; little aftertaste and finishes dry
M:4/5 - appropriately moderate carbonation that pops the hop aroma/flavor; moderate alcohol body
O: 9/10 - an excellent example of a British-style IPA - an excellent amalgam of a noble hop and British malt flavors; the only American examples of English IPAs that have approached this are Berkshire's Lost Sailor and Brooklyn's EIPA; recommended for something more traditional if you're looking to get away from the big PW hop aroma/flavor
TOTAL - 44/50
