2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at source. Strong floral and herbal hop aroma. Hazy orange with white head that laces well. Taste is initially very bread crust with moderate bitterness. Followed by more bread crust malt flavors. Finished dry, moderate carbonation. Not a fan of the hops or the overly crusty malt flavors.

A well balanced pale, The Duke starts with a citrus hoppy nose with light caramel malt tones. Not a lot of bitterness, but a lot of fruity hop character with a lasting finish. Pours light copper with a wispy off-white head.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap: The aroma consists of light-moderate caramel, fruit, faint citrus, and florals. It’s a hazy amber with a small off-white head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thick ring. There is a thick sheet of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick moderate and a touch of fruit. The finish has light-moderate florals and light pine. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, it’s solid, but English IPAs aren’t my favorite.
