On tap at Union Jack in Indianapolis.

A: Clear honey color with maybe a finger of head and little retention.

S: Sweet malts, roasted nuts, a bit of honey and some hops. More subdued but varied compared to American IPAs

T: Pretty much the nose but with slightly more hop bite. Good but not great.

M: A bit weak on the carbonation and medium bodied.

It's okay but unmemorable.

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

A - Crystal clear yellow. Nice light beige head. Excellent lacing.

S/T - Slightly hop forward with floral and grassy notes, but the sweet malt bill is definitely discernible. Slight acetyldhyde/fruity yeast ester.

M - Medium bodied, well carbonated. Definitely stickier than some of their other options.

O - Probably one of my more preferred English IPAs, not that it's a style I particularly gravitate towards.

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

Poured in a straight English ale pint glass.

A - Pours a golden colour, honey like. Fizzy head dissipates quickly but not completely. Obvious carbonation.

S - Malty and spicy, caramel, lime, bruised apple,

T - Nice bitter flavours with a malty backbone. Hops are present but not at the forefront. Perfumed, lavender, caramel, cider apple, cinnamon, orange peel, malt. Proper bitter aftertaste.

M - Nice crisp bitter bite, light creamy carbonation at the right level.

O - Very nice session type IPA, good balance of bitterness from hops and the body from the malt and good level of carbonation. A solid big production IPA.
