3.5/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Aroma: Lemon, orange. The nose is all hops.
Looks: Foggy amber/golden in colour. Small off-white head. Poor head retention. No lace.
Taste: Lemon, grapefruit, orange peel. The hops dominate the flavour of this Beer. Very citrusy & fruity hops and yeast flavours. Not much of the malt flavour gets a chance to shine through though.
Mouthfeel: Carbonation is slightly less than average in volume. Small bubbles, soft mouthfeel. Medium bodied.
Overall, I like this Beer and think that it is a good Beer, but I don't think that it should be considered an English IPA because the hops seem too American and too aggressive, I also think that the malt characteristics should show through a little more than it does. The yeasty esters were English-ish enough though.
