I put this in as a different beer as the last one was apparently an American IPA and the one I had was certainly an English IPA.

Pours a clear copper color with a one-finger slightly off-white head. The head sticks around for a while before dissipating into a patchy layer of bubbles leaving decent lacing.

Smells of buttery malts with faint hints of citrus. It could use more malt sweetness.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Buttery malt flavors up front are backed up by mild caramel malt sweetness with hints of citrus in the background. Ending is mildly bitter.

Mouthfeel is good. The thickness and carbonation are solid but not noteworthy.

Drinkability is good. As I mentioned before, I think with a bit more sweetness this would be better, but even as it is it's a solid beer.

Overall a tasty English IPA is always welcome, and this is one of them. Worth a shot.
