3.53/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

355ml bottle poured into Big Rock glass.

Pours a clear pale amber with a thin cap of off-white foam that leaves loose blotchy lace as it recedes.

Smells of toffee, brown bread, dried flowers, muddled citrus peel and mild earthy, herbal hops.

Tastes of more bready caramel malt, mild orange and grapefruit fruitiness, soft toffee and more subdued English hops.

Feels mild and smooth. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Finishes dry.

Verdict: Recommended. Not a particularly exciting beer, but easy enough to put away.

Twist off cap of the bottle and I poured this into a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-burnt amber to orange color with a slim finger's worth of foamy to fizzy white head. It immediately dissipates and leaves no lacing.
The smell had some burnt cake-like malts, a light grassy hop, and a light earthy hop. Some caramel malts show themselves as well.
The taste was mainly malty with a decent earthy to grassiness running underneath. Lingering malty aftertaste resides and leads into the finish.
The mouthfeel was about a light to medium on the body with a stickiness hard to let go - cloying - yes.
Overall, yeah, about this one, not really. I don't mind good English IPA's but this isn't one of them.

Overall, this is fairly unremarkable. It's easy to drink, no doubt, but it lacks any distinctive qualities to set it aside from other IPA's. The hop profile is very subtle and it lacks the citrus notes I have come to associate with quality IPAD. There is nothing wrong here, but I would not go out of my way to pick up a sixer of this.
