Appearance- Pours a golden orange with a half inch head that leaves moderate lacing.

Smell- Strong smell of orange bitterness and caramel. Also get a scent of fresh bready grains.

Taste- Like the smell orange and caramel with a moderate bitterness that doesn't linger. Again with a back end of grains as it warms

Mouthfeel- Good mouthfeel and carbonation.

Overall- A little citrusy for an English IPA, not a bad tasting beer. Good amount of caramel and bready grains as it warms.

Pours a nice golden orange with a finger of foam.

Floral notes, citrus, light caramel sweetness.

Honey and caramel like sweetness, light citrus, and floral hop bitterness.

Light-bodied, medium carbonation, crisp, low bitterness.

Overall, a pretty swell IPA.

12oz bottle into tulip.

A - Clear bright copper with a large dense white head. Great head retention.

S - Pine, citrus zest, sweet caramel malt. Hints of grapefruit and floral hops.

T - Orange, grapefruit, bready malt, caramel and pine. Very well balanced. Finishes with a mild earthy hop bitterness and a residual of toasted grain.

M - Really crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Dry finish.

O - Simply a delicious beer, bordering on a tasty DIPA. I'm impressed at how easy it is to drink, as no alcohol is detected. Lots of hop flavors to pick out too.

Poured this into my typical style glass; oversized at that.

Poured a brilliant gold with nice bubbling coming from the bottom. A nice white head that has some lacing. The head went down to a thin layer by the time I got half way through.

Nose is floral, citrus and spice but not real strong.

Taste I found to be quite balanced and enjoyable. A slightly above average dose of citrus hops with some citrus peel finish and a hint of malt. A rather full mouth feel for an English style. Overall, I found this beer quite a pleasure to drink.
