Really this beer is kind of like an almost-imperialised version of Boston Lager

Pours a dark clear marmalade colour with nice head.

Smell is floral hops, then a strong orange marmaladey impression from malt and hops. Also a yeasty character which makes the totality of the nose like marmalade on toast somewhat. Nice.

Taste is lots more orange marmalade. There's a punishing English hop bitterness. There's also some tea in the taste and nose coming through. It's a veritable English breakfast.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, quite a lot of carb.

Overall an enjoyable beer. Did not enjoy my first beer of the sixer. Now I'm down to my last and I'm really appreciating this beer. Be warned that despite the beer's style, the ABV is still decidedly American. After reading others' reviews, I can definitely also relate to the "vanilla" elements picked up. Recommended as a curveball from US IPAs which still holds its own.
