4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
500ml bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a one finger off-white head. Head retention is negligible as is the lacing.
Aroma is spot-on for an English IPA. Lots of caramel with just a little bit of toast along with very Earthy hops. There is some dankness from the hops and a decent floral character.
The flavor really showcases the floral and earthy hops with a very strong malt backbone. The interplay between the various origin of hops works wonders here with floral notes sort of coming out ahead of the earth and dankness. Bitterness is on the moderate side and doesn’t overwhelm the taste buds.
Overall, a very nice example of an English IPA and very interesting. The hops here are wonderful with a fabulous malt backbone. Definitely one to check out if you come across it.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Nice bright golden amber color, thin head cover, no lace. Taste is malt and unidentified (not floral, citrus or pine) hop bitters that move together to a lingering finish. Full-bodied, yes, but complex? No. Drinkable, agreeable, not memorable.

500ml bottle served in a small tulip.
Medium amber with weak head
Hoppier than their Chief but still only at the level of a modern APA, so English IPA. Lasting, mildly bitter and nicely hoppy aftertaste.
Medium-light body with medium carbonation.

Pours a clear straw yellow with a thick white head - not impressive, but never judge a book by its cover. Hoppy aroma has a firm underpinning of sweet Mandarin orange. Flavor is fairly hoppy with woody and Mandarin orange notes, plus a resiny hint and a little bitterness. Smooth texture is average in the fizz and firmness departments. So-so, but enjoyable. Have it with a meal, or at a party.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a hazy golden yellow with bubbly white head. Aroma is intense on the piney hops with a hint of soft lemon citrus and pale malt. Taste is also big on the hops, more American than English, but rather nice. Soft, creamy mouth, with just a hint of bitterness.
