Thanks Adam. Hazy, golden orange body with a soft, white head. Grain, earthy hops, lemon. Malty and robust, given the <5% abv. Hop character is there, but not in the lead role. Biscuit, grain, earth notes with mild resinous bitterness in the back. Decent.

Bottle (11/12/14) poured into a Samuel Smith imperial pint

A- A normal pour creates 1 finger of khaki head atop a hazy, golden-orange body. There's light carbonation and the head settles to a thin film, and leaves nice webs on the glass. A little yeast sediment became "floaties" in my second bottle.

S- A balanced aroma of grainy malts and lemony hops. Some warmth brings a sugary sweetness and a little hop spice.

T- The flavor follows the aroma, a good mix of grains and lemon. Clean finish. Just on the malt side of balanced, compared to the more aggressively hopped IPAs.

M- Medium body and carbonation. A little grainy. Pretty dry.

O- An easy drinking beer. Seems to fit the English IPA parameters(since it's classified that way on the label) as it's a little maltier than the American style counterparts.

Yeast and hops mix for a powerful bitterness on the palate. Very resinous !

Excellent bitterness and hop flavor, smooth and uncomplicated floral/herbal taste. Lightly carbonated.

Very smooth IPA, not too hoppy. Has a milder flavor than most IPAs with a sweet spicy flavor. I like it.

Bottle from BlowOffTube, thanks for the opportunity!
Onion and peppery nose, a hint too sweet imho, but nice easy drinking brew.
