Excellent. The mouthfeel and nose makes for an awesome twist on a classic beer.

A- Almost pale, golden color with great transparency and a sticky, foamy head that leaves impressive lacing

S- Light floral scents that lean toward the cooked veggie, woodsy spectrum of floral. I'm guessing Fuggles

T- Decent bitter pinch leads this beer into your mouth and is followed by almost nothing expect a biscuity malt flavor that I associate with Left Hand

M- Unique feeling created by an airy body and wispy carbonation. Somehow reminds me of a gust of wind across my tongue

D- I didn't see anything special about this after my first bottle, but as I pair it with my traditional fare (pizza and popcorn, etc.) I find it really does have a place in my drinking lineup as a competitor to New Belgium's Hoptober, which is only competition in the fall. Not really an English IPA IMO
