Nice tropical fruit in the hops, but the flavors muddy together a bit. A good but not great IPA.

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.

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.
