Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter.

Pale golden color. Just about less than a finger thick off-white colored head with decent retention. Excellent lacing. Clear with some very fine suspensions. Translucent.

Nose is dominated by grapefruit. Some rather bready notes and a bit off beat dry hopped weird aromas. Overall strength is mild to just about moderate.

Taste is just about the same. A bit of raw mango, some grapefruit flavors. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Palate effect is just normal. More balanced than i would like an IPA to be.

Mouth feel is medium to light bodied. Very low on carbonation for an IPA. Drinks very smoothly like a session ale or pale ale.

Overall falls in the pale ale category. Near Dale's PA but not quite as awesome.

Poured into tulip.

A: Golden yellow with 1 finger white head. Good lacing.

S: Sweet maltiness, not much hoppiness going on here.

T: Watery unbalanced, over malty mess, not a good bridge between hop and malt profiles.

M: Watery, flat and light for the style.

O: Nothing spectacular, not bad, just not good. I'll search for something else next time.

This is a solid maltier example of an IPA. It's an English IPA- so the hops are more complementary, rather than the star- some earthy pine aromas, tea and leafy hop flavor, and some spicy hop aromas and flavors. There's a very sturdy but not too sweet malt backbone. This is a classic for a reason- always drinkable and tasty.
