A good beer experience. One could comfortably down a few of these tastys in a sitting and not get tired of the flavor or the weight of the beer. Nice light sugar pine aroma and flavor. Delivers your hop fix with easy drinkability and without going over the top.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2008 Great color. Aroma of Fuggles and a slight bit of malt. Good balanced flavor. Not bad. This is a nice break from some over-the-top American IPAs.

Bottle. Pours a dark golden colour with a white head. The aroma and the flavour both gives proof of an average IPA - notes of citrus fruits, hops, some fruity notes and malty caramel.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer was quite enjoyable...my initial impression was that the beer was heavy on bittering hops, but less on aroma or flavor hops. As the beer warms some of the bitterness mellows out to allow the english malts to come through nicely. There are some piney notes from the hops, and not a particularly noticeable yeast character. I think this is a nice solid IPA but not one of my favorites as IPA’s go. A good beer but not for a session

Bottle poured into a pint glass. Hoppy, bitter flavor that went well with the salmon we cooked up that night. Less aftertaste than other EIPA’s I’ve had. Very nice overall.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2012 This beer pours a deep amber with a tiny, yet noticeable white head. The aroma is very floral with a hint of pine, citrus, and spice. The flavor is malty with a mellow bitter taste, but it finishes somewhat clean. Not perfect, but still very good. A mellow IPA.
