12 oz bottle poured into a large tulip glass.

A - nice bronze body with a pillowy creamy eggshell colored head. Good retention and great lacing.

N - kind of grassy and a little hoppy. English hops.

T - good taste. Boozier than expected. Biscuity malts and fine old world hops.

M - fine.

O - good enough.

Throughly enjoyable. Not a big hop bomb of an ale, but enough bitterness and maltiness to be very enjoyable.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 6/6/2014. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy orange/copper color with a 2 finger dense and rocky light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a large amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, floral, grass, pine, light caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops, bready malt, and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, pine, floral, grass, light caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, pine, floral, grass, toast, biscuit, and floral/yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Good complexity and balance of citrus/pine hops, bready malt, and fruity yeast ester flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a good English IPA. All around good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops, bready malt, and fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a hazy copper-amber color with some floaties and with a super intense head of white foam that prevents the beer from being poured in a single pour. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to where more beer could be poured into the glass. Eventually all the head faded away to leave a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is bready with mostly a citrus hop aroma of grapefruit. Along with these smells are some floral hops and a dank pine hop smell as well as a little bit of a tropical fruit sweetness.

Taste – The taste begins with a very lightly toasted and bready flavor with a moderate showing of tropical fruit sweetness of tangerine and a little bit of mango. There is a bitter grapefruit hop upfront that creates a hop base for the brew. While there are tropical fruits upfront, they later fade being replaced by a little bit of a caramel flavor. Along with the change in sweeter flavors also comes an increase in the hop with the grapefruit getting accompanied a stronger some pine and a bit of an herbal taste. A little bit of tangerine and mango come back to the tongue at the end, with the mix of flavors leaving a somewhat dank hopped, but still malty and lightly fruity flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather high. For the style a little lower carbonation may have been better for the dank hop and bready tastes, but overall the feel was pretty decent.

Overall – An alright IPA that is slightly more dank and resinous in hop profile. It was alright, but nothing too special overall, with me likely taking other IPA’s of comparable price and abv. over this one.
