3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12-oz bottle. Light golden color. Small with head. Fruity aroma: a hint of apricot. Aroma also somewhat bready. Taste is very balanced at first with not a lot standing out. Gradually the taste sours and then becomes bitter. Just a little watery. Texture is thin and a little fizzy. A very drinkable brew and better than 80% of the stuff you find readily available, but it doesn’t stand out from the better IPAs.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is dank and musty, lightly sweet, has caramel and herbal, earthy, some citric qualities. Really fascinating aroma, spicy sweat sock stuffy. Pours Clear, rich golden-orange with a medium, dense beige head. Taste semi-sweet to semi-dry with a malty and slightly chalky full body, light crispness; medium citrus and herbs, faint spice. Very faint but pleasing cheesiness. Where’s the bitterness? Anyway, this is balanced and very traditional-foodie English, or, well, at least the kind of English that’s imported into the US.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home, pours clear golden with white head that fades into lacy film. Aroma is bland, faint malts in caramel and toast. Not much of a hop presence in the aroma. Taste is better than the aroma. Hops come through in mild pine and grass, solidly bitter. Malts bring in a faint sweetness. Highly carbonated, average body. Average To below average IPA.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Appearance- decent bone white head that lasted a good bit. Light lacing. Fairly clear (a little cloudy right out of the bottle). Honey gold hue.
Smell- malts and spice. Clean.
Taste- a little sweet up front (surprisingly), then on to the bitterness. The notes on the nose don’t really come through, unfortunately. Disappointing.
Mouthfeel- medium body.
Overall- okay, not great. Wouldn’t go out of my way to have again. Many better options available.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours clear gold with a white head. The aroma has fruity / grapefruit hops and rich caramel malt. It has a medium crisp body with a modest amount of carbonation. The flavor starts with dry crackery malt, earthiness / wood, pine and a hint of lime. The finish has sulfur and minerals. Decent IPA.
