Surprisingly amount of citrus and flowery tastes in the hops. I could drink this stuff all day. I kept an extra litre to age in my basement.

Half liter growler: poured a caramel brown with a creamy off white head. Sweet malt and light hop aroma. Sour bitter hops and balanced malt make this a solid drinkable IPA. Not for super hop heads but very good.

Cloudy orange-amber. Deep fruitiness to this beer - plums, oranges, a little tartness and some cheesiness. Lots of brown sugary malts in there as well. Sweet, but rounded example.

Bottle, special procurement. Hazy copper. Some particles. Nose is a nice fruit cocktail: pear, pineapple. Smooth body. Remains fruity but is dry and grassy. Simple.

From a growler filled at the Brewery 12/2005. Nice English style IPA with a decent hop aroma and a nice hop flavor. A tasty and pleasant British/European hop profile that’s a little more spicy and sharp and not fruity/floral/cirtus like most american IPA. A little touch of that rough bitterness (from a higher cohumulone hop?), but it adds to the charm. A nice cloudy unfiltered beer, the way they should be. The London Ale yeast finishing out slightly sweet but dry enough for the style. Tasty and very drinkable.
