Pours a hazy orange with a two finger foamy head. The nose is earthy and citrusy. Orange, grapefruit, lemon, and dirt. The flavor is very malty for an ipa. There is a lot of hops but also a lot of toffee in the malt. Nice, thick mouthfeel. Actually a very good beer.

I don't know about traditional, but this is a good American-style English IPA. Bready, fruity, and moderately bitter. Mouthfeel is creamy and inviting with probably more fizz than any English beer ever had. But I like it that way.

Kind of a DIPA sweetness and a big broiled peach flavor. Roasted malt and a zingy finish. Quite hoppy. Handsome darker amber color with an ample foam in the Duvel tulip. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Bottlecraft - North Park in San Diego.
