3.92/5  rDev +1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: high carbonation, 1 inch head, hazy, gold in color

Smell: citrus hops with wheaty bread

Taste: orange, lemon zest, light grapefruit, and light toasted malt

Mouthfeel: sweet with bry bitter backbone and dry end, light body, high carbonation

Overall: A very juicy and tasty English IPA. Bitter but not overly so. A nice beer to sit with. I like others from Mystic better, but this is solid.

look; pale golden orange with lots of tiny bubbles. first normal pour resulted in head rapidly foaming over glass rim for half a glass of beer. A much more careful pour resulted in a foamy 4" head. leaves thin sticky lacing
smell; apricot hops and malt, some citrus, a little bit of cherry when the head calms down
taste; dry hoppy grapefruit up front with grass, tart cherry and wood blending in, medium light malt, nicely balanced
feel; crisp, fresh, lots of carbonation, almost seltzer level. Works for this beer.
overall; a nice very live and entertaining hoppy fruity bitter pale ale. a lot going on but balanced, nothing out of control except maybe the head.

500mL bottle. Pours a burnt orange color with, even with a soft poor, yields about 4 inches of fluffy white head. Tons of lacing. Yeasty aroma with some apple, citrus, herbal and floral hops. The taste is much like the aroma. Apple and herbal hops with some wood and floral hops. Bready. Floral, herbal hops finish. Heavily carbonated. Overall, meh.
