look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a golden amber with a small white head.

The smell is earthy hops,raisins and plums, very nice.

The taste is malty with earthy hops.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation.

Overall a very nice English ipa which hides its abv very well.

12 oz. bottle poured into a nonic pint glass

Pours a clear amber with honey gold highlights. The two finger cream color head has great retention and leaves behind a good amount of sticky, splotchy lacing. Grassy, herbal, and a hint of citrus blossoms on the notes. Opens with mild bitterness, bready with toasty caramel accents embedded in the very noticeable malt bill that slowly gives way to a dry, crisp finish dominated by grapefruit rind bitterness and hints of alcohol. Medium bodied, smooth, and well-carbonated. Very enjoyable and extremely well balanced. As a fan of English IPA's, although this tends to be a bit more bitter than most, this is one of the better examples readily available in my area.
