Nice rich pine and citrus aromas!

Awesome copper color, with full head!

Not too full of hop flavors.grapefruit and other citrus flavors. Good amount of carbonation, but not Overpowering.

I'd compare it in style to that of Centenial IPA.

Overall a great English Style IPA!

Bring on the rest of the IPA's by Great Lakes!!!

12oz. bottle poured into a curved pint glass

A- Clarity is impressive. Off-white head, of two figer dissipates a little, but sticks around a good bit, and laces nicely.

S- a very deep caramel/toasted biscuit/sweet malt smell. There's jut a touch of citric hops, grapefruit in nature.

T- Big malt bill. Sweet caramel notes, with a toasted biscuity as well which clearly defines its British IPA-ness rather than AIPA. The hops area also more British IPA in nature, but tend towards an AIPA grapefruit/citrus origin rather than the earthy hops of, say, Bellhaven Twisted Thistle. Hops hit with bitterness on the backend moreso than flavor.

M- A really nice, slick, thick-ish medium body. Carbonation is solidly medium, and the clarity of the brew puts the carbonation on show.

O- A very nice IPA that breaks the boundries of West/East Coast or straight up English IPA. Me likey.
