Poured into english pint.
Got clear deep golden beer with 2-finger off-white head, average retention.
Smell - malts, grass, hay, weak fruitiness and hoppiness.
Taste - sweet malts, marmalade, good hop bitter finish.
Medium body and carbonation, to some extent harsh and not very well balanced beer. Skunky smell and common impression get bad scores.

To those who say it's not an IPA please understand, it's a ENGLISH IPA. You know like the ones that the Brits sent to INDIA. Engish IPA's are the originals and notably maltier. It's a decent example of a traditional English IPA(like Samuel Smith's India Ale). Buy it if you get a good price on it.

5.5% ABV according to my bottle. Pours crystal clear and golden with a weak head and no lacing. Smell is grassy, hay, slightly medicinal, and some off note I can't quite place. Taste is like a below average bitter with some extra hops. Slightly watery mouthfeel. Slightly unpleasant aftertaste.

No visible bottling info, bought last week at a go-to store where it was on sale, so possibly has some age on it. Poured from the 16.9 oz. bottle into a Lawson's stemmed tulip.

a: Clear dark gold with an inch thick white head which receded to thin surface foam and spotty lacing.

s: Mild caramel malt.

t: Followed the nose, with a slightly sharp note or two at first and near the end of consumption. In between it was pretty much all nice malty goodness.

m; Medium, good body and carbonation tingle.

o: A good British-style IPA which probably was not as fresh as it could be, thus little in the way of hop bite. The slight sharp tartness is assumed to be from age.

A delightful English India Pale without the over hopping of an American IPA
