3.4/5  rDev -10.5%

Undated bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of grain and yeast
Head large (5.5 cm), off white, frothy, VERY slowly diminishing – can’t wait for it to die, must drink NOW
Lacing good – broken rings and islands of various size bubbles
Body light to medium amber, hazy (yeast sediment)
Flavor OK, grainy and some yeast phenolics, a little alcohol; no hops, no dicetyl.
Palate medium, oily, soft carbonation.

This is an OK ale – not something I’ll ever seek out again, but one I’ll drink if someone offers me a free one.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a copper color and a hazy consistency. There was a two inch, foamy, long-lasting head. Very good lacing.

S: A severely muted aroma of malt, hops, and a little fruit. Not bad, but too underplayed.

T: Tasted of light hops, a good dose of malt, a bready quality, and light citrus notes. There's not a whole lot going on here with the flavor. It's not bad, but it leans toward the mild side.

M: A decent amount of carbonation with a dry finish. Medium-bodied.

O: The problem here may lie with the English IPA style itself, which is a bit on the thin and uninteresting. Kiuchi tries with this, but it doesn't succeed all around.
