3.88/5 rDev +2.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 12 oz brown longneck bottle, layer of sediment is noticeable and seems tightly packed. On the label it states that this beer is bottle conditioned.
Appearance: Cloudy sunset orange with a semi aggressive carbonation to bring forth a multi-bubbled off white lace.
Smell: Rounded toasted malt, quite estery with a softening fruitiness of mango an pears. Faint solvent with a sweet and spicy alcohol to boot. Yeast is in the aroma also.
Taste: Full bodied with a complex and creamy lightly chewy malt mouth feel. Level carbonation is just enough to hold the malt together. Fruity and estery blushing flavours of peaches and mango. Hop bitterness flushes middle to end with a earthy, citric and subdued floral flavour. Fumes from the alcohol escapes from the nose and mouth and the alcohol leaves a warming feeling throughout. Touch of yeast towards the end, a relatively sweet brew with some drying in the finish.
Notes: A really really good replica of the lost style, alcohol is quite noticeable from both warmth and ester. An IPA in the raw.

Pours hazy gold color with a small off white head that faded quickly and left good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, caramel, biscuit, lemon zest, floral hops, grains and some citrus fruit. Pretty basic nose, but very well balanced and better than normal for an English style IPA. Tastes like it smells, with malt, caramel, biscuit, lemon zest, floral hops, grains, orange peel, toffee, mild spices and some citrus fruit like orange juice or some citrus hops. It's sweet but the malt and hops taste is evenly divided for great balance and drinkability. Tasted much better than it smelled. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with average carbonation, a medium body that was a little chewy, and a malty aftertaste that was sweet with nice citrus accents. Overall this was a nice English style IPA that would make for a fine session beer.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.
Smell: Caramel, toasted malts, light citrus, herbal, and grassy hops.
Taste: Definitely malt forward with the hops and bitterness in the rear.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, fruity, chewy, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.
Overall: Nice take on an EIPA. Next time in Philly, 'I'll check these guys out and this beer too.
