Notes/Commercial Description:
This formidable India Pale Ale has a hop aroma that demands attention. The bold, citrus hop flavor is balanced by a dry malt character making this refreshing ale a true classic.

4.03/5  rDev +18.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

355ml bottle as a gift from Virginia:
Caramel brown with a 1cm, creamy looking head with great retention.

Strong & sweet malt smell straight away. Biscuit & caramel next with citrus & a faint smell of alcohol, hardly any hops though.

Sweet caramel and some light citrus with some malts. A few light fruits sitting in the background with a hint of orange and some pear. More hops than came through in the nose but I still wouldn't class it as a particularly hoppy beer. Very nice though.

Medium bodied beer with a sweet beer that has lively carbonation and the beer is surprisingly smooth. There is some bitterness and the finish is somewhat dry with further sweetness as well.

Labelled as an American IPA but it seemed more pale ale to me. A few hops coming through but for the most part it was the sweet malts and caramel that dominated. The beer has perfect carbonation and was sweet throughout with a good balance and was one that I quite enjoyed.
