Ha ha, ha seasonal March- October as described. Thatís um quite a season. I like the aroma in this English malts,roasty, some hops, rough hops somewhat dank in this beer though. Same in taste robust malts, good amount of hops, not a typical English ipa as in mild. English in character but is ipa, with more malt character. Really like this one, like the style generally though. Abv might be my favorate, well done.

A very straightforward ipa, citrus and pine hop flavor. Itís good, although nothing really stands out about it. Refreshing on a hot afternoon.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Murky dirty orange-gold color with a small off-white head. Very sweet caramel malts, with some citrus hop undertones. As malty as this is, it seems as though the hops are still unbalanced. Not really my bag.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at Old Fashioned in Madison, Wisconsin. Clear red orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves great, thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Nice bigger creaminess. More dry finish. Great full mouthfeel and texture to this. Orange citrus, light spice and pine and zest. Some light caramel, bready biscuity malt. Moderate bitter taste, moderate sweet. Pretty solid balanced IPA. Not too big bodied. Easy to drink, pretty smooth.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Standard hop-heavy IPA with a bit more malty sweetness than usual to provide not so much a balance than an alternating sweet-bitter combination (though the latter is stronger).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft (or maybe nitro). LAstyear. Much earther, maltier, and sweeter than the typical IPAs of this range.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 7-19-14. Scents of toffee, rose, minerals, and orange. Metallic aroma. Pours a clear amber with a moderate amount of light taupe head. Extensive, long-lasting lacing boosts the appearance to a 4. Tangy taste features flavors of toffee, coffee (which surprised me in the English IPA style), minerals, and bran muffin. Malty base with a dry finish. Dry, mineral-y aftertaste. Light to medium body. Soft in the palate. Forgettable palate effects. Overall, pleasant enough but unmemorable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours an oily orange/amber. Thin dissapating head. Aromas of earthy hops, sweet malt, and licorice? Taste is bready malts and earthy hops with a bit of lingering bitterness. Medium bodied witha crisp finish. Very different than IPAís Iíve been drinking..... so this is very nice!
