Appearance: A clean and clear golden strawberry color with a very nice cloudy head and great lacing.

Nose: Tropical fruit with some raisin and banana. A little citrus at the end.

Taste: Malt and hops play back and fourth. The hops comes in citrusy and zesty. It is quite sweet. Some grapefruit and orange in the end.

Notes: The brits may have done it first, but I don't think they do it best. This, however, is a very nice example of what an IPA can be.

Great looking beer, lots of lacing left on the glass. Very British in the style. Loads of earthy, grassy hops. Medium high bitterness with excellent drinkability. I prefer American hops, but it is certainly a great beer!
