12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 1/2/2016. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, wood, plum, pear, apple, light pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, wood, plum, pear, apple, light pepper, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of piney/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon/orange peel, wood, pepper, pine, plum, pear, apple, honey, toasted bread, and herbal/grassy hop earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness after the finish from bitterness. Some mild but acceptable levels of diacetyl present in the aromas and flavors. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice English IPA style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. This was a bit fruitier than I’d prefer, but was not horribly off balance either. A nicely enjoyable offering.

P: Clear golden amber pour with a frothy light head dissipates quickly leaving a good bit of lacing on the top.
A: Earthy, malty, subtel hops and caramel.
T: Earthy, mild citrus- lemon. Some hops and malt
M: Dry, acrid, very little bitterness.
O: Old school IPA. The fuggles lend a different twist to today's IPA.

This beer grew on me. Certainly not the best in its style but has some nice hidden qualities that make it different and unique.
