3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The 22 ounce bottle poured a beautifully clear reddish amber colored beverage with a modest frothy off-white head that lasted well and left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was less hoppy than I expected but there was a fair amount of citrus hop nose present accompanied by a subtle caramel malt note. The body was medium-full with soft carbonation and a smooth creamy texture. The flavor starts out lightly sweet but quickly turns moderately bitter and remains that way through the medium-long finish.

Bottle. Pours a beautiful cheddar orange with a lively body and a slightly off-white head. Apricot seems to be the dominant aroma in the nose; quite pleasant and light. Flavor is floral apricot with a nice sweet/bitter finish of grapefruit. Nice mouthfeel; flavors are dispersed quite nicely along the tongue. Very enjoyable brew; I’ll buy more of this for sure.

The aroma is quite English with English hops and yeast. The malt character is caramel like and the taste is nutty. The appearance is amber with a decent head. The palate is smooth. Wow a fantastic beer.

This is really winner, the hops are more piny and subtle than Amercian styles of this kind. The malts are light and refreshing, crisp tastings with no astringency

A fresh hoppy beer that is on the same level as Hazed. The head is a little darker and the hops present give it that earthy smell and flavor. Not a traditional British style IPA or hoppy ale, this has slightly more hops and a better taste.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Beautiful pour, nice head. Strong fruity aroma. Real hoppy, no doubt about it. Not sure how much "British-style" this is, but it’s good. Finishes well, and the mouthfeel is great. It’s seasonal, grab it soon.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bracing floral hop aroma. Tickles the palate. Coppery amber color with a massive frothy head that laces. Medium bodied; light carbonation. Like it were bottle conditioned, mate. Light caramel malt sweetness, balanced by fruit and flowers. A bit gummy sweetness as the finish approached. The finish is very florally flavored and balanced. It is really very good. Mild and flavorful. Great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big citrus and fruit aromas with mild spice notes. The massive dose of ganja can’t go without mentioning either. The body is a pale, slightly tan tinted, golden color and holds a diminishing white head. Flavor is all hops with citrus, floral and herbal notes. Finish is sweet and fruity. Has a mildly oily feel to it. Just too hoppy for my tastes though.
