Pours bright copper, decent head.

odd aroma, bit of tropical fruits, touch of cabbage

Odd taste, metallic, drying, a bit juicy on the end

medium body, well carbed

not very good really, its just a bit odd.

A nice copper colour with a modest head of foam. Fresh aroma hop smell (resin, peach, lychee), but the flavours seem a bit subdued. Same goes for the taste, though this has a nice touch of caramel mixed in. Smooth body, although a bit more carbonation would have been nice. A good IPA, but a bit too subtle for me.

Pours copper with a medium head that leaves a ring and a few spots of !ace. Nose is a pleasant mix of American and English hops. Flavor is nicely rounded malts with a well balanced bitterness. Not a hop bomb by any means, but a nice well rounded mild IPA.

I had this beer at a local pub - it was served from the tap in a pint glass.

L: The beer had a nice copper color; there was a small head on the beer but that is ok with me.

S: fruity, citrus aromas however it was faint.

T: not a strong, bitter taste. I did not detect much of hops in taste. My impression is that it tasted more like an amber ale

F: Smooth drinking, not a lot of carbonation

Overall, it had a good taste and refreshing. However, I would probably opt for another beer when looking for an IPA
