Cocoa, orange, roasted malt. Low carbonation, orange flower and dark chocolate, floral hops, lemon zest, nutty cake, dry finish. Quite an interesting take on an ipa, does have both the british dark cocoa and american orange fruity edges.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at OBriens in San Diego. Deep gold color, low carbonation. Aroma is dried grass, honey, malt. Flavor leans to a grainy cereal character with sweet caramel and hop bitterness understated. Finishes quickly with low alcohol tones. It's OK.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber with a solid off-white 1/2" head, cobweb of lace. Taste is caramel malt that adds mild, but distinct, hops on the swallow. Light carbonation is also present. Pretty simple, just barely enough hops to be an IPA.

Pours a clear amber colour with a frothy off white head. Aroma is hoppy and grassy with some bread malt scents. Taste is mildly sweet and not overly bitter, it’s quite balanced. Medium body, good carbonation, and smooth on the palate. Overall a good IPA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle served in a tulip. The beer is a clear golden orange with an inch or so of white head that shrinks to nothing and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is fairly malt forward. Caramel, biscuit, and floral hops are most present, although the aroma is fairy faint all the way around. On to taste. Sour citrus, bready malts, and a little caramel and toffee flavors. There’s really not much else there. The flavors are sort of muddled and underwhelming. As far as palate, the beer goes down pretty easy and is feels fairly light. Overall not the best representation of the style, it’s more like English IPA light.

Bottle from Mitsuya’s. Pours an amber with a nice off-white head. Malt forward aromas with hints of citrus hops, floral and tea aromas present as well. Fairly balanced with the malt sweetness and caramel pairing nicely with the citrusy hops and some pepper on the palate. Nice dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grassy hop aroma with a slight maltieness come from this clear pale golden brew with white bubbles forming around the glass. I get the classic english bitterness followed by the malt then the flor taste of the hops come in leaving. Bitter note in the aftertaste. This beer is mediumish bodied and has good carb. The label says it all. An English ipa.
