4.25/5  rDev +9.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Presentation: Very cool label in the GLBC tradition with awesome artwork, graphics, and font. Label states “Gold Medal Winner World Beer Championships”, gives small back story of the beer, ABV info, web info, serving temp recommendation, small bit of brewery info, Enjoy By Date (9/18/13). Neck label has a small description of the beer and GLBC logo. 25th Anniversary Cap.

Appearance: An aggressive pour from its 12oz brown bottle into a 16oz English pint led to a 4 finger off white head of a light airy density atop a very transparent light golden orange beer. Head retention was excellent at 5min 30sec before fading to a thick frothy coating and ring with excellent lacing.

Smell/Aroma: Smells of sweet orange citrus hops with a slight floral hint. Also has a very nice spicy malt scent.

Flavor/Taste: Flavor is of a very sweet orange citrus hop flavor with a bit of spiciness on the front end. Hop bitterness turns piney/resin at midpoint and lingers around turning to a earthy piney finish. All resting atop a bready caramel malt back bone. Has a very bitter aftertaste.

MouthFeel/Drinkability: Medium bodied and slightly creamy with a medium carbonation. Smooth and extremely drinkable.

Overall/Comments: An all around excellent beer from GLBC that is amazingly well balanced and easy drinking. A fine example of the style and a must try IPA. Classified as an English IPA @ 7.5% ABV. Consumed 8/3/2013.
