Amber color and with minimal head that dissipates quickly, albeit leaving nice lacing behind. Nose is surprisingly malty for an IPA, especially a fresh one. Not too bitter and in fact somewhat balanced. Mouthfeel is where this beer wins. Lovely smoothness on the tongue. Flavor lingers on the tongue for quite some time. Not my go-to IPA but it has its virtues.

Not as hoppy as I like my IPAs. I guess that's why they call it English style IPA. But it definitely delivers. Still noticeble hop presence and strong malt backbone.

Pours golden hazy. Medium head that covers well. Smells slightly floral and slightly medicinal (the hops no doubt). Very well balanced. This could easily be a session IPA. Typical of Great Lakes quality. I will drink this beer again and again.

Somewhat subdued yet very full ipa. Smell is sweeter than hoppy, and the taste follows exactly. The hops balance it out well, however the bready and yeastiness are the backbone of this one. I don't know if I'd get this again soon, but it was good.
