Pours a hazy dark orange with a fluffy off white head that shrinks to a thin layer and leaves a lot of lace. Aroma was fruity hops with a nice bit of yeast and bread like malt smells too. Much more sweetness up front than expected, pears, plum and peach fruitiness with less truly bitter hop flavor than expected. Earthy hop bitterness on a drying finish that doesn't really last long. Good IPA, nicely drinkable without being over the top on hop bitterness as the trend seems to be for American IPAs. This tasted more like an English offering. I would drink more of this but only recomend it if someone was seeking a sweeter, less hopped IPA.

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.
