L: Golden with orange highlights, clear and bright, originally poured a large head though it fades, no lace
S: Toasty malt, lightly buttery, hops are sweet and fruity, lightly tropical (candied citrus)
T: Sweet grain up front, strong malt presence here, which I am personally a fan of. Hops repeat the candied citrus note I picked up on the aroma. Finishes with a lightly dry bitterness.
F: Smooth, higher end carbonation, very crisp. Body feels a bit heavier but its not a chore to drink since the flavors are right, though not exactly refreshing.
O: As a fan of well malted IPAs, especially English-style IPAs, I think this is a fantastic beer. I think hops and malt play into each other nicely here, and I think Greak Lakes did a superb job balancing the various aspects of the beer. Can see this being a mainstay for me for the near future.

The appearance was a gentle light golden amber to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dies within less than about forty seconds. There’s a good amount of lacing kinda going all over the place not forming any real speckled or spider web or even rings. Honestly, it looks kinda sloppy. The smell had a decent amount of English malts mainly just coming in front just a tad of some bitter piney hops. The taste was balanced more between the malts and hops, so I’d say it was a good bittersweetness. On the palate, it sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation seemed appropriate for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a good EIPA worthy of having again.

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass. Best By Date of 7/2/2017

A: Pours a copper orange with no head developed, looks flat, slight lacing.

A: Citrus peel, pine, slight sweet orange note with caramel malts in the finish.

T: Follows the nose with citrus peel and pine, low amount of bitterness in the middle, finish has lots of malty sweetness with slight notes of citrus.

M: Medium bodied with a dry finish, lacks carbonation.

O: A drinkable, smooth beer, however, the beer is flat. I did not expect this to be hoppy as it is an English IPA but it's very malty and sweet, I would have like it to have a little more hops.

A really nice IPA. More hops than anything, some grains. The bitterness and seeetness is balanced nicely. The taste is bold immediately, but balanced. You can't go wrong here.

Pours a lovely copper amber color. Has a potent citrus aroma with hints of pine. Classic IPA taste with leftover pine on the tongue. Moderately hoppy with a strong malt finish.

= A pretty well rounded IPA that is welcomed any time it's around in my book.

Pours a beautiful clear orange amber color with a full white frothy head that lasts. Smells mildly of citrus and bread. Taste is very malty for an IPA. Not at all what I was expecting. The feel was good but Overall I didn't want to finish the glass.

Poured from bottle best by 6/12. Smooth mouth feel with slight bite at end. Classic IPA taste with less bitter aftertaste. Hazy amber color. Good for multiple refills.
