4.03/5 rDev +6.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Pours a hazy gold with a creamy, thick white head. Little chunks of yeast are clearly visible in the liquid.
S: Aromas of leather, heather, bitter orange, pine, lemon rind, and cedar are present on the nose.
T: Strong notes of leather, heather, fresh herbs, bitter orange, kumquat, pine, lemon rind, biscuit, tobacco, cedar, and minerals coat the palate. The finish is earthy and rather dry with pronounced lemon rind, herb, biscuit, and tobacco flavors.
M: Medium in body, but also slighter than I would normally expect for a beer of this style. Decidedly dry as well, especially on the finish. Carbonation is active, but gentle. Alcohol is subdued, but is also capable of catching up with someone quickly.
O: A really solid, authentic example of the style. I think this ale serves as an excellent counterpoint to Schlafly's American and Tasmanian IPAs. I could also see this beer being used to illustrate the differences between English and American takes on the style.

3.75/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
12oz bottle, bottled 6/25/13, poured into a pint glass
A: Orange color, lots of little bubbles and a 1/2-finger head
S: Sweet, lots of barley, more subtle fresh orange juice and a hint of bitter hops
T: Earthy attack followed by sweet malt, sweet grapefruit and some caramel towards the finish
M: Medium-bodied decent carbonation
O: Tasty, just a bit sweet for my palate. If that were toned down & the hop bill increased slightly I think it would accent the citrus/earthy notes even better... or perhaps it's a bit late past its bottling date
