A strong orange-fruit aroma that I loved. Nice. A good hop flavor up front and in the finish. The orange notes work well. A good beer for the girls too.

12oz bottle poured into glass. Not sure why this would be under the category of English strong ale. It taste pretty much like a regular IPA. Nice hoppy presence with a solid malt backing.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light hazy amber with a thin, fine head that fades quickly. Bready aromas accompanied by light caramel and a sublte noble hop spice; surprising Belgian-esque phenols. Full bodied with caramel and light anise, low noble hop flavor with medium finishing bitterness. A seriously underrated beer in my opinion.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up on tap at Buffalo Billís with clear copper body and gold edges supporting up an off white head and leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a little spicy with hops as well as some floral hops too. The taste is similar with a mix of spicy to floral hoppiness followed by a modest amount of vague hop bitterness.

Great appeance and nice head. I jsut donít like the choice of hops. Seems a little harsh to me and for the price not worth it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Malt and wet grain aroma. Nice silky palate but rather disappointing taste of bland malts followed by a satisfying whole grain bread finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the brewpub on 8/7/10. Pours a clear gold with a medium off-white head. Aroma is cascade hop and a bit of malt, but mostly non-descript. Decent hop and malt balance in the flavor, but the hops donít have much character. Not a bad beer, but kinda boring.
