4.01/5 rDev +2.6%
Poured from a 750ml caged & corked bottle into an imperial pint glass.
A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a large off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick but spotty lace on the glass.
S: The aroma contains caramelized malts, honey, citrus and a good amount of hops.
T: The taste starts out sweet with flavors of caramel, honey and citrus. Then a hearty malt character comes in. The hops presence is a bit subdued for the style but it’s complementary and provides a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet and slightly hoppy.
M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.
O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a very solid beer to drink for a long time if you want an IPA with less of an edge than most.

4/5 rDev +2.3%
11.2 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.
Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a slightly hazy pale orange color with some vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.
Smell: Some citrus fruitiness, pungent, floral, toasted, and caramel malts.
Taste: Herbal, citrus, chewy toasted malts, and sweet caramel to balance things out. Mild tingly bitterness in the rear.
Mouthfeel: A bit smooth, chewy, light to medium bodied, and medium carbonation.
Overall: For an EIPA, this is probably the best one that I have had so far. Hoppy, herbal, malty, and delicious.

3.78/5 rDev -3.3%
Appearance: Hazy, light orange color (darker oranger with the final pour), with a decent light beige head.
Smell: Something malty, oily and ...cheesy (in a positive way) complemented / balanced out by a certain kind of hoppy freshness.
Taste: Similar balanced taste; very pleasant.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation, smooth texture.
Drinkability/Overall: Very pleasant beer; complemented very well (after initial sips) with mature cheddar and blue cheese.
P.S. My bottle's label mentioned a 7.4% abv; not 7.5% as mentioned in the description above.

11.2 oz bottle poured into a small milkshake pilsner glass. Best before 24 01 15. Date stamp of L132053 13 56.
Appearance: Hazy golden-amber. Thin off-white head. Some small islands and strands of persistent lacing, especially towards the bottom of the glass.
Smell: Lemon, malt, some herbal hops.
Taste: Pleasantly hoppy and bitter. Solid malt backbone with some notes of honey in the sweetness. A floral finish.
Mouthfeel: Good carbonation, chewy, a bit sticky on the teeth.
Overall / Drinkability: For the price of a small bottle, not something I would buy again. Good, but not amazing. However, if it were on cask in the UK at a lower price, I think I would definitely have another. A beer for savoring, and all the flavors come out at proper British beer temperatures. Let it warm up a bit to get the aromas and tastes. So a good beer overall, but rather expensive to have often or to drink a lot of.
