3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
As far as English IPAís go, itís not bad. Thereís more spice in this brew than others of the same category. Itís almost a hybrid beer: wheat and IPA. Iíd probably go for it on-tap but not again in the bottle. I also noticed that with every sip the taste seemed to be a less satisfying. However, if you are a big fan of English IPAís and want a bit of a change from the everyday beer, then go for this one.

Bottle. Golden pour with a small beige head. Modest aroma is malty and sweet. Very little hops.... similar in taste. Malt base is a little too dominant. It is sweet though, like the name implies.

Poured a dark golden orange with a half finer white head. Not much on the nose but what I do get is some mild earthy aromas. On the taste there is some sweetness up front with a light smooth maltiness in the middle. It followes with some grass and earthy hops on the finish that linger just a bit. Mouthfeel is light but smooth with soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap at the brewery (Minneapolis, MN). Pours a deeper copper amber hue, darker body, richer orange honeybrown glow, mellow haziness. Orange amber edges glow. A frothy offwhite head laces well on the glass, mellow lacing. Frothy head laces ok. Aromas are a good deal of english malt, biscuit and gentle toffee. Toast, dry florals and earthy hops. Mellow bitterness, toasty malts. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, offering toasty malts, biscuits and a decent floral and earthy hopping. Grass and gentle lemon. A bit of body, gentle spiciness as we move back, firmer florals and grass bitter it up a bit. A touch of body, toast and biscuit. Bready malts. A firm hopping that is in the true English tradition. What it lacks in creativity or oomph, it makes up for in sound and balanced brewing. Not bad.

On tap @ the Wild Onion. Appearance is a clear copper color. Aroma is a medium amount of flowery hops, and just a little caramel malt. Taste is a controlled dose of hops, with some caramel and toffee mixed in. This is not in-your-face citrus like west-coast IPAs, but instead the taste fades quickly and leaves a small amount of bitterness. Itís really drinkable, and medium bodied with good carbonation (not watery).
