12oz Bottle from Party Source Syracuse NY for 2.00$

Appearance - Slightly hazy copper colour with an average size fizzy beige coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 4-5 minutes.

Smell - Hops, malts, caramel, grassy notes, grapefruit

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste caramel, malts, and hops. There is also some grapefruit, a grassiness, and a peach sweetness. It ends with a fairly bitter hop bitterness.

Overall – Better than I had expected based on reviews. It's kind of like a fusion of English and American styles. I'd drink it again.

My first English IPA. Pours and appears a dark orange, cloudy, low head tannic ale. Smells sweet really, and floral and some citrus, but not hop prominent like American IPA's. Taste is roasted malt and caramel and some citrus bitter, all modulated by a really busy, and creamy and effervescent mouth to the beer. Fun to try. Still, give me more hops!
