3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This English style IPA is a full-flavored, full-bodied brew that has a big bold malt character and intense aromatics. It’s a well-balanced, golden-colored brew that has a crisp hop finish that doesn’t bite. With its palate cleansing finish, IPA is a perfect for highly spiced dishes with curry, ginger, garlic or cumin. This classic English style IPA is brewed with: 2-row Pale malt and is hopped with Challenger and East Kent Goldings hops

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark golden in the glass, fresh hopped nose. The beer starts malty, nicely hopped with hints of citrus. The body is not too sweet and slightly malty. To the end there is a subtly bitterness that refreshes a bit, smooth citrus and kind of floral aroma.
Nice IPA, very crisp, but a bit too subtle and too less-floral, but I like the citrus-note of the hops. --> 12/11/12/12

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is muted floral/earthy hops and a sweet malt. Pours pale copper with average white top. Flavor up front is sweet malt with an amazing floral hop flavor follwed by a mildly bitter pleasantly abrupt finish. Medium body, mild astringency in the back of the throat. Very good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a golden yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies to a film and barely leaves any lacing. Streams of carbonation are seen rising.
The smell is lightly hopped up front, still a nice dosage of caramel malts appear.
The taste is mainly sweet, becomes slightly bitter, and has a sticky sweet aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, she sits about a light to medium, comes across fairly sessionable, and has an adequately carbonated for the style and for me.
Overall, this seems to be a bit sweeter than most AIPAs, could be borderline EIPA b/c of strong malty presence I say this is good for the style and good for me, I would have it again.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is barely a decent IPA let alone a "ridiculously tasty" one as the bottle proclaims. This is one of the least hoppy IPA’s I’ve had. Probably wouldn’t drink again.
