A - Pours slightly hazy gold to amber color - almost orange. Head is an adequate, off - white, but dissipates quickly with some lacing left on the glass. Lots of bubbles escaping to the top.
S -Bready, caramel malts up front with citrusy and earthy hops. More on the malty side that many American IPAs. This makes sense as the bottle states it is an interpretation of a classic English style.
T - Sweet, rich malt with a balanced earthy (almost floral) hop profile. Mild to moderate bitterness.
M - Moderate body, "thicker" than many American IPAs. Carbonation bite with a tangy twinge turning to a lasting bitterness. Mild alcohol sensation in the end. Warming on the throat.
D - Drinkable beer. Makes me feel fuller than many IPAs. Maybe the carbonation or maybe the heavier malts. Either way - not one to drinks lots of.
Overall - Nicely balanced IPA that is more malty than many American IPAs. Hops are present, but not as in your face. Blended and mellow.

2.69/5 rDev -29.9%

A: Lightly cloudy blonde color. Starts with a 1 finger white head that recedes to a simple white cap. Leaves decent lacing on the glass.
S: Mild hop scent. Some floral notes and slight sweetness.
T: Lots of bitter. Not really balanced out with anything. Late bitter after taste too.
M: Kind of spongy and "soft"
O: I really did not like this beer. The mouthfeel was off and the flavor was lots of bitter (not the highest I've ever had) but there was nothing else there to balance it out. The after taste is the real downer. It is lingering bitter. I will definitely pass on this in the future.
