look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - A pale golden-orange, topped with a sizable one finger head which keeps great staying power. It lasted right until the end.

S - The hops, possibly cascade, clementines, and a hint of lemon.

T - A delicious and very orange-tasting body of liquid enters the mouth, and as it swirls over the palate there is what tastes like concentrated marmalade, and citrus aftershocks. Thereupon comes in the pineapple, cane sugar, and a lemon tang. It's all extremely fruity and HOPPY; the hops keeping in with the main flavor for a sublime bittering effect. Very tasty.

MF - Noticeable carbonation, yet it doesn't go overboard, medium body which suits this beer admirably.

O - Quite a delicious IPA, I was expecting it to be more hoppy from the brewery's proclamation on the label "powerfully hopped", but I'm glad this does not take away from this highly enjoyable beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: Light golden amber colour, lively carbonation.

Smell: Floral hop aroma, Orange and citrus. Very nice. More American hop aroma than you would expect from a English IPA.

Taste: Good malt flavour, citrus just as you would expect from the smell. Long bitter finish that is expected from this style.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation.

Overall: Very nice IPA, nice balance of US and UK styles. Could see it be very enjoyable in the summer months.

Drank from my Duvel pilsner glass

A - Pours a golden amber colour with a nice white creamy head that retains well.

S - Nice hoppy aroma with a little grain and malt.

T - Nice hops up with caramel malt balance. Predominant flavours of grapefruit and citrus.

M - Medium body and low carbonation.

O - A better than average EIPA has some nice hoppy notes.

This golden beauty displays a lovely bouquet even out of the bottle, with an admirable coalescence of caramel malt, peaches and lemon balm aromatics.

At the mouth, the beer is crisp, angular, modestly bittered - but at the same time splendidly balanced with the sweetness - and carrier of woodish, mossy, minty, piney like notes in play with the obligatory grapefruit notes and bubblegum center.

It's a polished, extremely competent IPA that wears the typical American aromatics but is still very British in it's temperance and elegance. A proper job indeed.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

This is one of those beers you must try,and it's worth of waiting it.

A - Honey orange color,usual for IPA-s. One finger white foam,lasting few seconds.
S - Lots of elder spice in it,hops and honey.
T/M - Good balanced bitterness,elder,bitter aftertaste,sweet malt. Some spices.

O - Do not drink it to much cold,you will pass all the good aromas in it. School example of IPA.
