Pours amber with a frothy white head.

Definite floral aroma coming off this.

A bitter sweetness up front which lingers. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Solid IPA with a leaning towards maltiness.

Pours clear, gold with 3/4 inch head. Taste is caramel, grass, grain, and oily herbal hops. Really sweet at times and also really bitter at others. Above average sipper. Glad I had it, would not pass by it, but would not rush to get it again either.

Pours a clouded copper, leaves a fizzy/frothy off-white head that reeces slowly, leaving some lacing in it's wake.

Smells malty, caramel notes, barely, herbal hops.

Taste is sweet malts, caramel. Surprisingly on the sweet spectrum for something with an IPA title. Hops do not have any forward presence at all. For all that it takes on a nice sweet malt bready flavor.

Light bodied, thin, smooth, very low carbonation, leaves very clean, has a surprisingly warm alcohol on the finish.

A good brew, definitely wasn't expecting the sweetness, but it has a decent flavor.

L: This is a very attractive beer. Hazy copper/amber body with a decent white head after pouring. A thin white ring holds the edge of the glass throughout. Minimal lacing sticks to the glass.
S: Very subtle hop notes give it a mild stone fruit aroma. It has a sweet but not malty smell, not so much caramel, but some kind of sugar.
T: Very pleasant up front with delicate fruit notes that give way to mild sweetness. Again, not really caramel, more sugar cane. The balance is incredible in my opinion. Sweet IPAs typically turn me off, but this is walking the line between sweet and dry amazingly well.
F: I hate describing a beer as "smooth" but this one really is. It has a soft mouthfeel, but boasts plenty of carbonation. It has a nice body that isn't too thick and is definitely not too thin. Just enough bitterness on the backend too.
O: This beer surprised the sh#t out of me! I was expecting to maybe tolerate it, and definitely figured a can or two would stick around in the fridge longer than it should. That, however, will not happen. I intend to drink down this 6-pack quickly because this beer is tasty and a nice change of pace from the big hoppy New England IPAs I drink pretty much daily. This beer illustrates why people shouldn't sleep on English IPAs, because they can be fantastic!

I was so excited to try this beer after seeing bros score and avg. Review score. Until I first smelled from can and was surprised there was no hoppy aromatic sense at all. Then when I took first swirl in mouth I immediately had a sugary sweet Caramel flavor. Not what I was hoping for. I am guessing the English process in this is all about Caramel and sweet.
