Arrives an amber, coppery color with a finger of head. Leaves thick lacing down the glass.

Nose is grass, pine, lemon, caramel.

Taste is bitter to the seams. Pine, lemons, a hint of grapefruit, roasted and pale malts, a touch of solvent in the back, then a long bitter drying finish, leaves a slight pucker. Just enough malts to balance this but I tend to think this leans to an English IPA - not enough C hops or lively hop presence to warrant an American IPA.

Refreshing and bitter, would go well with a nice dish of just about anything.

Appropriate cellar temperature. Comes across watery which is the only real demerit here. Cloudy gold color. Little lace on the glass. Bitter hop aroma with a pale malt smell. Classic British flavoring, leaning toward the bitter side. Low alcohol warmth.

The beer arrived at the table a nice amber colour, with a small off-white head. Despite its promising looks the aroma hinted that the flavour would be a let down and it was. A sub-standard IPA mix of citrus and wateriness, with a little soap thrown in for good measure. Overly light body, but decent carbonation. By no means was it offensive, but it wouldn't be something I would consider revisiting unless the recipe was retooled.
