Beer served in a shaker pint, beer is amber and has a mild haze, nice white head, one finger, some retention, some lacing, moderate carbonation.

Aroma is very hoppy, very piny and earthy.

Beer is medium in body thins out on the end and finishes really bitter, strongly piny, very bitter, way too bitter for an English IPA but a decent beer, it is a shame this is being retired, oh well.
