Just simply a wonderful beer. Definitely not a session brew -- this one is for sipping and enjoying more slowly. For all the hops it boasts, it also possesses outstanding balance.

Copper colored with a half inch of creamy and dense tan head. The aroma is of a hint of smoke and earthy hops. The flavor presents bold earthy hops, smoke, and finishes with a touch of vegetation and coppery and slightly dark malt. The mouth is dry, lightly resinous and sticky.

Burnt amber with a white foam that dies to a thin blanket leaving bumpy lace.

Smell is corn, grapefruit, lime and fruity apple, with taste bringing graham, grapefruit, spicy pine and green tea via a frothy, crisp body and dry finish.

Haven't had an English IPA in a while. Nice malty flavor with a nicely balanced bitterness but no pine or spruce. Very refreshing with a nice effervescence and a long finish.

Taste: slight sweet malt, alcohol notes with a spiced hop forward flavor. Nose has complicated hops and some boozy aroma. Deep amber/gold, somewhat opaque, tall foam head with delicate lace. Medium body

Excellent Ale with nice amber color. Malty and citrus aroma and taste. Very smooth mouth feel and a nice clean finish. Poured into tasting glasses and had a nice head and lacing. Looking forward to the next bottle.
