look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Pours a pale amber colour, quite clear. Head is off-white, dense but sunken to a thin film. Lace is lovely and sticky. Have seen better.

Smells lovely. Nice, mellow hop notes but lots of them. Spice and citrus with lemongrass, tangerine and some cinnamon. Nice malt base backing it up but all in a sweet equilibrium. Mellow, really, and yet packing a punch. Beer should just smell like this.

Taste is similarly mellow. Starts quite sweet, with plenty of sticky caramel malt that sticks around nicely throughout. Hops start early and never really reach an apex, with lemon and mild green peppercorn notes, touch of grass on the back maybe and some green tea bitterness thrown in. Again, very mellow, balance is the key with nothing really aggressive about it. Maybe a touch heavy on the sweetness at first and then quite dry from the hops on the back, but it's a good-drinking IPA.

Yeah, lovely body but a bit dry on the back, quite a pull considering the hop flavour is so subdued.

As I say with bland English ales, I could quaff pint after pint of this in the pub with some mates. But where the difference lies is I would actually want to drink this.

This pours a golden toasted straw color. A light floral hoppiness aroma comes through. Same for the taste—hops flash forward initially, then step gently across the palate. Not a big hop bite on this, certainly not on the finish. Piney dominates, with some citrus and pineapple? A sweet tropical fruit flavor with a light, relaxed finish. And it comes in a can.
