2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
First off, English style IPA is not my style. There's a reason American IPA's dominate. This one is all about the malt with a mild citrus in the back. Finishes with a moderate bitterness. Bland and tastes like an IPA past it's due date. WBA.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
It pours golden with orange tinges. The head is a creamy light orange. It has aromas of apricot, bread, and sugar. The are sweet flavors followed by some bitterness. The flavors are floral, bread, and sugary sweet. It has a light-medium feel to it and is moderately bitter with a bit of astringency. Overall, this is a balance beer with a slight edge on the hops.

Bitter and hoppy, but finishes harsh instead of smooth to me. Flavor is missing something interesting.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can stamped best by 4/15/2016
A:Can poured large head of frothy texture that held for several minutes atop a clear pinkish gold body with big bubbles visibly active. Thick lace.
S: Malty sweet/tart dark fruit smell. Not much in the way of hop zing. Smells sort of like an Amber Ale IMO.
T: Smoky roast bitterness greets the tongue, nicely balanced by a slightly sweet toffee malt note. Very English in flavor.
M: Medium heavy on the mouth with a bit of astringent resinous finish but otherwise quite clean.
O: Pretty average English IPA I suppose. Body and flavor strike me as just about right for the ABV. Goes down pretty smoothly too. Nothing to really complain about but I guess I have become used to more American hop profiles now, as I would like another hop note to develop (not necessarily citrus) as this is a bit one-note. Overall I say "OK" but I’m not impressed.

12 oz. can from South Carolina. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have some citrus, mild resin, a touch of earth with a pale, toasted malt base, some aged hop character, pretty average overall.
