4.35/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

Served from a growler counter-pressure filled the day prior into Sam pint glass.

A: Dark caramel with a thin head that built slowly and dissipated quickly.

S: Sweet roasted malt and a lightly floral hop background.

T: Roasted malt and a light bitterness.

M: Thin body with low carbonation.

O: An exceptionally well-balanced and easy-drinking brew. It has enough complexity in the flavor profile to keep someone sipping and pondering, yet balanced enough to make for a great session.

Can stamped 08/18/2016

Pours a clear golden orange with a small, dense head that drops to a thick nitro-like layer. Smells hoppy, but there's a berry/grape-like element that is interesting. Oily, floral, peachy. Flavor is passion fruit, pine, berries, and flowers with a very nice nutty grain finish. Light bodied with soft carbonation and dry. Moderate grassy bitterness. This one started growing on me after the first can - definitely the best batch I've tasted as I'm usually not too impressed with Trophy Wife. Good pale ale.

Very clear and gold/orange beer with a white head that leaves random spots of lacing. It has a floral, caramel and fruity aroma with some sweetness. The taste is amazingly sweet for a session beer with citrus and floral notes. There is a nice mildly bitter finish that balances it all out. This is a quite tasty session IPA.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives clear and a brilliant copper: a nice head leaves some webs of lacing

Smell: Fruity esters and caramel malt; hints of earth, grass and pine

Taste: Juicy Fruit and caramel, with earthy and piney hop flavors building; the finish is balanced but a bit thin

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Very English in many ways; if you told me this was an ESB I would buy into it
