Notes / Commercial Description:
This ale has its origins in the traditional English style, with a generous helping of American exuberance. Bright copper in color, it has an assertive hop bitterness balanced with a subtle malt foundation. Dry hopping at two sates of the brewing process provides floral and fruity hop flavors adding to the complexity of the brew. Original gravity ~ 1060; Alcohol by volume -- 6%.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear copper with a finger's worth of creamy off-white head. Some carbonation and lace

Smells a bit like a hefeweizen. Banana and some toffee. Then the floral hops make themselves known. Grassy

Tastes a bit hoppier than the nose originally suggests. Definitely grassy and perfumey floral notes. Subtle grapefruit and bananas. Tastes juicy. The malts are in the background and are bready and slightly sweet. Finish is somewhat spicy. Bit of a metallic copper aftertaste. Not unpleasant but nothing fabulous

Feels clean and crisp. Lingering hop bitterness is slightly drying

Overall a nice example of the style. Moderately complex. Enough going on for me to enjoy but nothing mindblowing
