L - pours a boring transluscent amber. Course bubbly head.

S - smells of fresh pine and lightly sweet caramel malts.

T - menthol and pine. Attempts the "cool breath of fresh wintery air" thing, but it's unrefined.

F - decently smooth and rich mouthfeel. Dense, ties the beer together.

O - not as bad as the reviews may suggest. Not good either though. Little amateurish, but drinkable.

Pours beautiful copper/dark Amber color. Smell likes typical Ipa(hoppy). Taste is of a good average IPA. Zesty, slight citrus and pine. A little metallic. Overall a good beer but because there are so many just good IPAs out there it is just average.

8/10...pours bright copper, white foam, quite striking. Minty pine nose, grassy. Strong oily bitter taste, slick bitter burn, then subtle sweet close. Doesn't let up. Flavorful bitter. Tasty.

Nice clear Amber pour. Spot on color for English ipa. A little cloudy, light head. Well carbonated throughout, refreshing mouthfeel. Smells of grapefruit and maybe some pine. Finished with bitterness. Sort of stings the back of your throat but more of a malty than hoppy flavor.

Some of jerseys finest. So good because of the water. Some of the finest hops with a great taste. A must have for any IPA fan.
