This one looks very inviting when poured into a glass. It has a nice goldne color body with a nice 1"finger of creamy white head, that hangs around for a while. The smell is of piney, with some citrus coming through. The taste is bitter of hops but the malt come in to give it a nice balance. Also i get some citrus on the back of the tongue. The mouth feel is great and overall this is a excellent English IPA.

Pours a brilliantly clear orange tinted gold with a two finger ivory head that persists well, leaving thick lacing on the pint glass.

Honeysuckle, pine, resin, and muted citrus dominate the aroma, with a light caramel malt supporting the hop assault.

Fairly sweet caramel malt, bread crust, and honey usher in a mid palate hop flavor, with grapefruit pith, pine, and a resiny bitterness overtaking the balance to the fairly bitter finish.

Body is moderate to almost creamy, with moderate carbonation.

Overall, a but more sweet initially than anticipated, but definitely a bitter hop dominated brew. Citrus was somewhat muted, but still added complexity.

Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Plenty of fresh clinging bubbles and lacing.

Smell offers an ideal balance of candy-like sweetness, tropical fruit relish, dank juicy hops and very light cilantro/herbal/mint quality.

Taste is well balanced between bitterness and flavor. Moist citrus and light grassiness lead into a mildly spicy, hop character with a big punch of bitterness. More mild spice notes in aftertaste with bitterness.

Well bodied with pleasant carbonation. Nice IPA.

Great beer from Great Lakes

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into an English pint on tap at The House of Brews in Turnersville.

A: Clear amber body with a thin white head.

S: Faint hints of some sweet citrus. Very mellow.

T: Pale malt base into a nice light citrus bitterness. Well balanced and mellow. Very easy to drink, but doesn't stand out.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation with a slight sharpness to it.

O: Easy to drink and good alcohol content for this mellow IPA. It doesn't stand out, but it is a good representation of the style.

A - Pours a golden blond and light ruby red color with two finger head.

S - Bready malt, light citrus hop, hint of spice.

T - Starts out with a slight spicy hop flavor followed by a drying crisp finish. This seems to have a stronger spice kick than other English IPAs but I like it. Reminds me of a hoppier version of a winter warmer.

M - Medium body with lots of carbonation. Bubbles seem to explode in your mouth.

O - Pleasantly surprised with beer since it was two weeks past the best buy date. This beer was very enjoyable and well worth seeking out. The hops seem to hold up very well.

A - Gorgeous! Gold with an orange tint, light ring of white head left by the time it got to my table.

S - Can't really figure out the smell of this one. Possibly some citrus, maybe some malt, it's hard to describe exactly what i'm smelling.

T - Delicious. On my first sip I can definitely taste some citrus. Missing the maltyness I was expecting. Definitely has a bitter bite as it finishes. No real taste of alcohol to this one.

M - Very full flavored, good carbonation.

O - This a beer a will be having over and over again. The full flavor, and bitterness mix well, and have a good balance.
