There is nothing even vaguely English about this beer, I don’t know why it has been classed as an EIPA. It is way too fruity and off balance.

a: a very clear amber color with some grainy yellow. 2 finger solid frothy white head. real nice looking

s: sweet malts, berries, something almost pear-like? juicy pineapple, some crispy earthy hops to finish it off

t: a little more one-sided than the aroma indicated. off the bat there is some piney, earthy bitterness, loads of caramel malt, a hint of strawberries, and some of that ripe fruity. a hint of pepper in here as well.

m: its a medium mouthfeel with quite a bit of carbonation and does feel slightly syrup-like

o: this has more of a bitter kick than i expected. there is a pretty heavy sweet presence in here that is cut pretty heavily by the bitterness. not the best balance in here, but its tasty and refreshing

I drank this beer. My buddy brought it back from Cleveland. I can't do a quick rating for some reason so this is why I'm writing a dumb review.

Poured into an IPA glass from a 12 oz bottle. Best by 1/14/15.

Color is crystal clear amber with a thick white head. Decent retention, lots of sticky lacing. Smell is apples and pear - almost like a cider A bit of musty hay as well. Flavor is similar - lots of green apple. It isn't unpleasant, but not at all an IPA flavor. A bit of floral hops on the finish. Body is light and watery with moderate carbonation.

Overall, I'd have to guess this beer had some flaws during bottling. If it was a homebrew, I'd say acytalaldehyde. Only had one other beer from this brewery and it was excellent, but this one is not right.
