COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This British-style IPA features citrus-filled aromas and a very malty foundation that marries nicely with the bold hop notes that emerge on the palate and ultimately dominate its lingering finish.

Dark amber brown with pretty slow fading head. Nice hop and slightly caramel nose. First sip is more ESB like...malty with slightly spicy and light orange citrus finish. Disjointed though. Okay.

Poor appearance. Hoppy pine profile starts, continues to the end. Nicely balanced, lacks the hop resin I typically expect from a profile such as this. Pretty nice overall.

(16.9oz bottle thanks to Errl) clear medium amber, fine offwhite bubbles. Nose is stinky, burnt, perm chemicals, sweet and hoppy, just smells like burnt hair. Taste of umami, bitter citrus peel, syrupy, tastes like burnt hair might smell.

tgncc (2818) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 16, 2013
At Savor NYC 2013. The aroma is citrus, caramel, toffee. The appearance is orange/gold, white head. The flavor is citrus, caramel, toffee again. The finish is citrus, grapoefruit. Too hoppy for a true English IPA, but less hoppy than the typical American IPA. Nicely done.

On tap at the brewpub - strong entry into the IPA category, aromas are subdued, slightly english style on this one.

Draft at a local. Listed as 7% ABV, and called an English IPA. Pours a thin off white head, over a clear amber (SRM 15) body.....nose is light malts, toffee/caramel, grapefruit peel, resin....taste is moderate toffee/caramel, mild raisin, hints of plum, finishing with a moderate to strong resin, pine bitterness.....mouth feel medium, slight astringency, minimal stickiness, carbonation adds a hint of acid tingle. This is most definitely not an English IPA. It is far too hopped, and the malt backbone is too restrained. However as an IPA (not style specific) it is perfectly nice, well balanced, and appropriately complex. For an English IPA, it needs less hops and more crystal/caramel malt. BJCP, to style on the board, 7/3/12/4/7

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear golden orange with a frothy white head and great lacing. Big citrus and grapefruit in the aroma, earthy hops, somewhat spicy, caramel, and straw. Taste is citrus, orange peel, pine, light bread, and caramel with a big bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Damn decent IPA.

Terminus (3242) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - SEP 28, 2012
Tap at the brewpub september 2012-pours lite orange with a small soapy eggshell head and good lacing from the start. Nose is pine and diacytl, very brit inspired but with more piney hops (less earth than a brit ipa). the yeast quality is all brit though. lots of pine/resin on the flavors with lingering sweet caramel malt and diacytl. damn this stupid big D, go away! Even so, i actually thought this beer was pretty good and what the brewery was going for. If it didnt have the big D you would see close to 4 ratings from me. However, this is a pretty authentic Brit inspired IPA.
