Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Shaker pint glass.

APPEARANCE: pours a nice amber color with 1 finger off white head that dissipated quickly leaving a thin layer of bubbles, there was significant lacing on the glass, medium carbonation.

SMELL: flowery, sweet caramel, pine.

TASTE: the taste follows the nose, initially sweet then a mild piney hop profile, nicely balanced.

PALATE: medium body and carbonation.

OVERALL: This is a good IPA, the Hallertau Mittelfrueh Hops are somewhat mild but make a very balanced IPA. This one is not as good as Mosaic but better than East Kent Goldings. I would not hesitate to buy again.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of October 2014. Sampled on September 20, 2014.

Lovely looking copper pour with a big off-white head just like the others in the set.

Aroma of roasted malts with an earthy and semi-bold hop character. Not in my face but noticeable.

Medium to full body.

The taste is a nice mixture of roasted malts and bitter hops that are not to floral or grassy. They balance out right.
