Growler filled at Yorktown, Bev. in Yorktown, NY

Pours lightly hazed auburn amber, slight light tan head, that goes to a thin collar, and fine film and delicate webs of lace.

Sweet caramel nose, with a hint of minty hops in the rear.

Enjoyable, easy drinking and fresh tasting Brit style IPA, with more maple and caramel malts. Hops are more muted but pleasingly supplying the balance. Worth a try.

First had: on tap at 16 Mile

Clear, darker amber / copper pour with a lasting white ringlet that left a few strands of lacing on the glass. Nice hop profile in the nose, citrus, pine, backed with some toasted grains. A pretty basic IPA, not that that's a bad thing. Taste of citrus/pine/floral hops, crisp but mild, and a solid, grainy, pale malt base. Medium body and easily drinkable, even if not the greatest IPA around.

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a traditional copper color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Some nice lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Slight citrus, bready, and caramel malts

Taste: All of the above with lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied, low to medium carbonation, and a little chewy, and some lingering bitterness.

Overall: The bitterness is what I would expect out of an AIPA. I know the English version is supposed to be overly hopped, but not the lingering somewhat chalky taste in the back of the mouth is too much.

I get some sharp pine smells with mild citrus and caramel malts. The taste is very smooth and malty with caramel and toffee notes and ending with a citric piney finish. The bitterness evolves as the beer gets warmer and the more and more you drink it.

I would say this is definitely one of the better English IPA's I've had since they are mostly subtle in comparison to other IPA's I've had. The malt profile really makes this beer stand out as well as the piney hops giving it that extra kick.

16 mile seems to make some quality beer judging by this beer alone so that should say something about this one.
