Pours a hazy, copper color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of hops, sweet malt, strong earthy malt, and a hint of pine. Fits the style of an English IPA. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of hops, sweet malt, strong earthy malt, hint of pine, hint of alcohol, and a hint of caramel malt. Overall, good appearance and blend, but the body and aroma are not quite EIPA worthy.

Pours a clear copper, leaves a fizzy half inch white head that dissipates quickly.

The aroma is comprised mostly of floral hops, and some slight fruity notes.

The flavor is mostly average, slightly sweet to start with a cream or toffee aspect, quickly melds into a brown bread malt character with a fairly satisfying bitter. It's not bad, but doesn't stand out in any way.

Medium bodied and is a bit chewy, alcohol is well hidden but shows up well towards the end in a small way.

A decent ale, with a pretty pleasing malt character.
