Had this as a draft out of a Sixtel into a pint glass.

Look is a warm golden color. You can smell a nice aroma of hops and othersubtle flavors. Taste is smooth for an IPA, but nice and crisp. Overall a great beer.

English IPA and a 4 all the way down.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, coppery amber body with a frothy head that leaves lots of lace.

Smell: Trip around the horn. Dank, cedar, ballast, bilge, salty and then... caramel malts with resinous, piney hops.

Taste: I found this beer's caramel backbone could stand up with complex flavors - a lot going on - resinous, piney hops, along with salt, wood, cedar. But more malt than not as in EIPA.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nicely balanced IPA; one of the best EIPA?

Copper colored brew with a white head. Fruity and sweet caramel aromas mix with scents of pine. The taste is nicely sweet with some mango and caramel followed by a nice piney bitterness. There is an aftertaste that reminds me of dried apricots. This is a really nice IPA with a little more sweetness and body than I would expect but it works well.

The aroma offers a biscuity sweetness, hints of pine.

The flavor follows with a sweet biscuity malt, onto a spicy pine bitterness throughout, hints of grapefruit.

This is a "Go To" IPA. Great taste (smooth) with a little darker look than other IPAs
