Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear light golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is of mild piney hops. The taste is piney hops with some malt, fairly dry palate. A pretty good beer.

Pours a clear, golden color. 1/3 inch of an off-white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of piney hops, sweet malt, pale malt, hint of caramel malt, hint of sugar, and a hint of alcohol. Fits the style of an American IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of piney hops, sweet malt, pale malt, hint of caramel malt, hint of sugar, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, and body, the sugar is the drawback.

Bottled
Golden bodied with big frothy white head that kind of sticks
Has a lovely citra-esque aroma citrus & nettles
The flavour is part UK IPA, part UK flowery bitter with a smidgeon of US IPA
It's a slight bit thin
Like everything in life balance is importance
& at £5 for 6 bottles this provides the financial balance for the expensive cost of craft ale
decent beer

This IPA is not typical American style. The aroma was citrus at low level. The primary flavor I can detect was coriander. (spiced?) Followed by a little citrus. Given that I am not a fan of coriander, this IPA is disappointing. Not a bad beer, though.
