3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A strong IPA, but one that has a certain lack of punch. There is a hoppiness overall, but the crispness of the hops in the finish seems to be weak. Generally good, but not great.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Poured deeper orangey-golden with a smoked beige head. The aroma picked up warm, toasted biscuit and caramel malts with dank earthy and lesser citrus hops around.. on the malty side for the style. The flavor was sweet, with the same malt bill at the core.. black pepper, citrus, and earthy bitterness plus some raw alcohol around.. biscuity notes and spicy hops on the warm finish. Medium-bodied and sharp at times on the palate.. not enough hops for me, and it didnít fully come together.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not a bad beer by any stretch, but a little harsh. The hops are true English, they add enough spice to the aroma and flavor, but they donít dominate like an imperial ipa should. The sweet malts become way too sweet by the end and become cloying by the final sip.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Rusty amber with a medium, bubbly beige head. Aroma is toffee, floral hops, tea leaves, spicy hops, caramel and soft citrus. Taste is caramel, toffee, tea leaves, spicy hops, fainter citrus, and a pleasant earthiness. This is definitely more on the English side of things. Body is medium with a soft, bubbly carbonation. Light lingering bitterness as well. Ends with more toffee, caramel, tea leaves, light citrus notes, spicy and earthy hops, and light floral notes.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma has hops that are metallic, soapy, and citrusy. The malt is grainy and there is a hint of yeast. The appearance is amber with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average for this style. Overall this beer might come close to fitting the style but is not that good.

Even-toned honey hazy honey in color with a cm of white head. Light citrus, aroma with a bit of malty sweetness. Taste is pretty one-dimensional in terms of high limonene hop flavor and thin English yeasty sourness into the finish. $3/12oz
