Poured a clear, darker yellow/gold colour.

Smelled malty, slight hoppy.

Tasted sweet malts and not hoppy or bitter (unusually because it was an IPA).

Would I buy it again? Probably not.

330ml bottle. 'A Salute to the original 13 States of America', i.e. British Colonies, so come full circle, we have.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium bronzed amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, bubbly, and loosely foamy ecru head, which leaves a nice band of snowflake lace around the glass as things slowly sink away.

It smells of musty pine needles, overripe navel oranges and white grapefruit, gritty, grainy pale malt, a touch of hard toffee, and more indistinct, but duly pleasant tropical fruit. The taste is bitter grapefruit, orange, and lemon citrus rind, some further pineapple and kiwi sharp fruitiness, crackery caramel malt, more crystallized toffee, and a moderately dank forest floor pine hop astringency.

The carbonation is quite soft, in its mere lilting frothiness, the body a steady medium weight, and perhaps a bit pithy and clammy in its claim to smoothness. It finishes fairly dry, the sweetness of the malt going to ground, and the mixed fruity tartness grabbing hard on the handrails.

While the hops are clearly evident in this brew, as is their mostly Yankee provenance, the offering as a whole lacks crispness, and focus, for lack of a better term. Or maybe it's just the rye on the malt bill. Anyways, tasty enough, but not in a way that makes me want to return for more, even given the rather inexpensive retail price around here.

Pours a dark Amber with little head that disappears.

Nose is mild. Some hops, slight citrus, malt.

Taste is very muted and follows nose. This one is similar to their Lancaster Bomber but slightly more hoppy and bitter.

Average beer. Not bad and I'd drink another but I'll not go seeking it out.

A British American pale ale, and rather a good one at that. Nice strong American hops which are smooth but strong. Strong citrus taste and a nice bitter finish. Excellent mouth feel. Very balanced with a strong hop hit. Very enjoyable.

330ml bottle. Shaker glass. Amber color & crystal clear appearance. Yellowish, close & creamy foam leaves a thin but lasting crown, as well as spots & rings on sides. Caramel malt aroma, hints of ripe fruit & slight toasted biscuit to the nose. Sweet toasted malts at first sip. Light to medium body. Moderate carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Silky palate & spicy touch. Increasing citric & fruity bitter flavors linger into a dried finish. Slight toasted malt arising flavor on the aftertaste is overhelmed by nice resins. Refreshing, flavorful & easy drinkable. A big one!!
