330ml bottles into a pint glass.

Pours a hazy medium gold with a one finger white head. Head quickly fades into just a tiny cap with some small splotches of lace on the sides of the glass.

The aroma is unique from many IPA's I have had. There is some orange and pineapple along with a bit of spice. Some grass and tree bark lending a very Earthy character. Even a touch of roast and wood. Pretty nice.

The flavor continues the earth, woody themes. There is just a small amount of orange but the majority of the flavor is grass, hay, and woods. There is a slight dankness just complimenting the Earth. Bitterness is on the moderate side with a slightly sweet, sticky finish. The flavor, I feel, fades out a little too quickly and I would like it to be a little punchier.

Overall, a pretty decent English IPA from a good brewery in England. I would really like to try some more of this brewery's beers.

A: Slightly dulled amber. Great big foamy slightly off-white head.

S: Soapy bathwatery hops.

T: A harsh backbone of bitterness and burned toast. Not a lot of fruit character. Soapy/bathwatery hops in the mouth after swallowing.

O: I'm sure it's well made but I'm really not keen on it. There's no way I could finish a bottle to myself.
