Not much head on a clear orange body. Aroma is a bit weak with mostly candy sugar and generic citrus. Flavors of malts mostly as expected for the english style with generic and non descript earthy and citrus hops. Grassy bitterness but not in a good way. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This one is just not very good. The malt character is good for the style but the bitterness and hops are too medicinal.

Copper color pour, lots of sediment, almost no head, but when poured into a plastic cup, what can you do? No hop aroma. Just a bitter thing going on.

Taste, bitter, but not from hops, like a bitter plastic burnt corrosiveness, with tons of grittyness in the mouthfeel, like they just dumped some sand from the beach into the kettle. Its not just that it was an English IPA, it was just lacking, it didn't even have the mild sweetness hop thing going for it, I think they just classified it this way because it would allow for more cheapness. Its not like it doesn't seem that if any hops were used (a reasonable question) that they were probably high alpha acid types used in miniscule proportions simply to jack that bitterness up.

One of the worst IPA's I've ever had.
