No head really on a cloudy amber orange body. Aroma of nondescript citrus and earthy hops with toasted malts. This one is really piney and grassy and some very tart orange. It takes some time to get used to. Also has a toasted malt base. Floral notes as well. Moderate to high carbonation and medium body. I like this beer it's just hard to drink for the first few sips. The pine is resilient though and you never get completely used to it. I also feel its a little over carbonated.

Pours copper with a small off white head. Aroma is wonderful, sweet and fruity (tangerines, grapefruit and melon). Nice flavor to match, starts out sweet with some malts and the fruit, followed by a nice hoppy bitterness at the finish. Great balance of flavors, and it has a nice tart yet subtly sweet aftertaste. Leaves a nice lacing after every drink. Excellent, unique take on an IPA.

Pours a golden amber with a small white head.

The smell is earthy hops,raisins and plums, very nice.

The taste is malty with earthy hops.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall a very nice English ipa which hides its abv very well.

12 oz. bottle poured into a nonic pint glass

Pours a clear amber with honey gold highlights. The two finger cream color head has great retention and leaves behind a good amount of sticky, splotchy lacing. Grassy, herbal, and a hint of citrus blossoms on the notes. Opens with mild bitterness, bready with toasty caramel accents embedded in the very noticeable malt bill that slowly gives way to a dry, crisp finish dominated by grapefruit rind bitterness and hints of alcohol. Medium bodied, smooth, and well-carbonated. Very enjoyable and extremely well balanced. As a fan of English IPA's, although this tends to be a bit more bitter than most, this is one of the better examples readily available in my area.
