P- Poured from a 12 oz bottle, into a large Funky Buddha snifter.Best by 08/01/17.

L- Soapy white colored head that stands just under 1 finger tall,with low retention and sticky lacing.Amber colored body with good clarity,and low amount of carbonation.

S- On the nose I get lots of bready malt notes,with trace elements of floral hops.This definitely smells like a malt forward IPA.Even more so than most English style IPA's.I'm detecting a little bit of caramel malts in there as well.Maybe even some dark fruits.

T- On the palate I get some hints of floral hops dominated by caramel malt and dark fruit up front.On the back end I get a small dose of pine hops,and bready / biscuit malts.Pretty malty but they balanced it pretty well.A little bit of nuttiness,and smokiness on the finish as well.

F- The mouth feel is thin and chalky,with minimal oxidation on the tongue.Dry on the finish.

O- As far as English IPA's go,this is probably one of the best I have tried,although I'm not a huge fan of the style.I probably wouldn't buy this one again,but I would definitely drink it if offered to me.

Pint served on tap at Harvest Restaurant in Glen Mills, PA. Nice Amber coloring but kind of flat tasting and lacked flavor. No hop presence at all. Doesn't taste like an IPA to me at all. I will pass next time and try something else.

3-31-17 - On tap at the brewpub. Served in a basic glass. Tasty, but didn't really stand out. No lacing or head. Taste was so good, but there are so many more here to try. Next for me is the same, but a Coconut Chai Hopfish. Tips up!

From a 12oz bottle with best by date of 7-06-17. Pours a clear amber color with a a nice heads that slowly fades. More malt and a little dank in the nose, than citrus or tropical fruit. Strongly bitter, resiny hoppy finish. I agree with the "English-style IPA" description on the label. Solid, if old-school, IPA.

Pours with a one-finger bubbly white head that fades slowly a good lace. Crystal clear amber color. Medium bodied & medium carbonation. Light grapefruit hop nose. Flavor starts with sweet caramel malt and late grapefruit hops, slight bitter aftertaste. Gift 12oz bottle.

A grand head which settles into a dome of tight, minute bubbles. Several rings of lace are the result. The liquid is a deep amber, nearly brown. Clear.

A combination of aromatic hops and bittering hops to the nose. The immediate following smell is a very earthy nose. The blend actual works well.

The earthiness is stronger in the taste. It creates a dry and bitter finish. The body is solid with an equally high carbonation. The aftertaste doesn't last as long as I expected. Overall, it is reminiscent of the original IPAs I tried from England.

Pours a crystal clear vibrant reddish copper in color with a finger of just off white head with great retention. Aroma is light caramel malt and some grassy hops. The hop flavors are grassy and seem a bit raw. I get bready, lightly toasty, and caramel malt flavors as well. The beer finishes with a malt sweetness that overrides a moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel seems a bit aqueous to me, light+ in body and lightly carbonated despite the solid headstand. Overall a solid beer that seems a good representation of an English IPA.
