Bottle > Mason Pint

A - Pours a nice gold color, thick fluffy two finger head, thick lacing too, looks top notch.
S - Aroma is really bland, a little biscuit malt, some minor tropical fruit, a little pine, nothing outstanding in the way of hop aroma.
T - Taste is a let down too, some nice sweet tropical notes up front, but they fade fast to a biscuity dry malt, a tinge of bitterness. Nothing outstanding for sure.
M - Watery for sure.
O - Eh, a decent english IPA at that, but nothing to go after. Its just drinkable.

12 ounce bottle into a pint glass.

A--Nice head that dies down quickly and leaves a little lacing. Clear, golden coloring. Looks appetizing.
S--Maltier than expected for an IPA. Light hoppiness with some citrus aromas as well. Smell made me interested in going further.
T--Sweet. Much more malty than hoppy. Not at all like the standard hop-bomb IPAs out there. Actually reminded me more of an English ale than an IPA. Not bad, but not at all what I expected.
M--Heavy, especially compared to what I was expecting from an IPA. Thick & creamy, again more like an English ale.
O--Not bad, but it doesn't meet my expectations for an IPA on several levels.

Poured chilled, chez White

A: crystal clear; good head retention; light toffee color; low-medium carb action
S: light hop aroma
T: a lot more happens on the tongue than on the nose; saaz hops?; hop profile is more herbal than anything else (e.g., citrus); semisweet; not boozy; well balanced in a particular lager-like direction

Strong IPA with a rather dank hop profile
