2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy amber in color with a thin white foam that leaves little in the way of lacing. Aroma was skunky at first. The stink finally blew off and left some floral and pine aromas. Powerful carbonation and a light/medium body. Flavor was a pleasant surprise given the smell it started with. Nice caramel base and a strong contingent of pine, citrus, and floral hop bitterness. Hop complexity is typical with a slightly floral finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice clear amber with a thick and fluffy cream-white head. Aroma is not too strong, but invitingly hoppy. Flavor is hoppy and fruity, the latter a little more citrus than apple/pear. Smooth texture leaves a light fizz and a somewhat hoppy finish. OK as IPAs go, but a worthy catch.

It's quite mellow for an IPA, it has a nice mellow malt flavor with herbs like thyme and rosemary. Casual drinking

Bottle at home. Soft floral aroma. Solid malt underneath. A touch of pineapple, grass, and a decently balanced finish. Not too bad. Certainly not standout.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fresh 12 oz bottle with a BEST BY date of 2 May 2014, served in a SA lager glass.
A - Pours an mid-amber color, thick fluffy bone-colored head has good retention; thick, sticky lacing.
Aroma: surprising balance of malts and hops; much more like a English ESB or pale ale than an IPA
Taste: is a let down too, some nice sweet tropical notes up front, but they fade fast to a biscuity dry malt, a tinge of bitterness. Nothing outstanding for sure.
M: a bit thin, but well-chosen level of carbonation..
O - Meh, a decent if rather tame English IPA. More than just drinkable but not worth seeking out.
