Draft, Beveridge Place Pub. Brown pour, off-white head. Toasty and floral aroma, a little citrusy lemon rind. Toasty biscuity flavor with a bit of caramel, but not too sweet. Has some brown ale-ish flavors, very autumny. Leafy hop flavor, herby, floral a little citrus. Finishes dry. Great IPA that stands out.

Earlier Rating: 11/18/2008 Total Score: 3.7
Draft at the brewery. This is a lovely little brit IPA, perfect for fall. Dark grainy brownish amber with a loose and sudsy off-white head. Mild tangerine and toast nose. Creamy medium body with a bit of assertive carb and a pleasant roughness to it. Ron’s a master at that grainy, slightly under-attenuated mouthfeel. Never gets in the way, never feels out of place, never feels like an oversight. Wet leaves, some toast, bit of biscuit--great mid-palate malt base under a nice subtle roll of fruit preserves with a clean finish. Very drinkable.

Leafy, earthy, and toasty on the nose. Some citrus. Pours a nice copper color with a nice lasting head and sticky lacing. Leafy, earthy flavors of hops and a nice English toasty malt undertone. Insanely drinkable, mine was gone in about 30 seconds. This was a very nice IPA.
