3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a copper color with your standard piney/citrus hops aroma. It has a very dry/bitter aftertaste (which I am personally not a fan of)

Cloudy gold beer, little white head. Soft dry palate. Grapefruit orange but with chalky seltzer minerals. Soft and dry and finish. Bitterish aftertaste. Okay but too dry.

Definitely more of the English style of IPA - much milder in the hops; could probably pass for an ESB. I think something was wrong with my batch - the head pours of all but one bottle were unnaturally large and took *forever* to recede. Otherwise, an okay beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light amber color with a solid white head that leaves a touch of lacing. Floral and herbal hop aroma, light caramel. Fairly light in body, softly carbonated. Nicely balanced flavor. Lightly sweet with a dry tea-like finish

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a good amber color with a hazy complexion, maybe chill haze. The foamy tan head is a fair size and with lacing dotting the glass. Carbonation is light. Aroma has a quite aromatic hop bouquet smelling like floral and herbal hops.Malts have a good caramel base. there is low levels of diaceytl in the aroma I must point out. Taste is hop forward with a pretty densent hop bill. Hops have a floral taste. Malts have a caramel taste and do a good job of boosting up the hops. Has a medium weight on the palette with a slick, smooth feel. Dry and bitter at th end.
I feel this is a pretty good interpretation of the English style IPA.
