3.95/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Dark Amber with a solid white head that laces all the way down.
Smell: Citrus. Lots of citrus. Even a little banana type of aroma. Can't wait to taste.
Taste: The hops hit you in the face and at the end. In between is a slight malt, lots of citrus, and a bite of alcohol. More American than a British taste due to the selection of hops. Again, a little bit of banana.
Mouthfeel: Somewhat astringent and a bit of alcohol. A bit of carbonation.
Drinkability: Very drinkable. A word of caution, though. At 7.0% ABV, this beer can sneak up on you. I think I'll have another. :D
Conclusion: I've been drinking this beer for years. As IPA's go, this is still a solid choice that I always keep in the fridge. Cheers!

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.
