Appears a light gold with a small white head that fades after a minute. Tiny bits of lacing can be seen on the glass.
Smell is of sticky hops with a floral aroma and a woody, oak scent.
Taste is refreshingly woody with light blended hops and a slight fruitiness.
Mouthfeel is nice and balanced with a nice, mild hoppy taste balanced with light biscuits and oak barrel notes.
Drinkability is nice for an IPA.

Finger licking good.

Cloudy orange with a thin, off-white head that produced a bit of lace throughout. Malty sweet aroma with floral/earthy hops and a mild citrus fruitiness. Solid bitterness with a fair bit of malt backing it up. Mild caramel notes up front. Light fruitiness followed by floral hops in the finish. Lingering hop bitterness. Medium to light body that felt a bit heavier due to the low carbonation. Good mouthfeel and just off-dry. This beer strikes a nice balance, delivering plenty of bitterness with considerable malt. And I really like the Northdown hops, a variety that I've used in homebrewing quite a lot.
