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.

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.
