12 fl oz bottle in Hotel. Orange golden in the glass, fine creamy head. Fresh fruity on the nose. Starts orange fruity with a pleasant fruit herb. Maybe a little too sweet, not really bitter. Light caramell hints in the background. Easy to drink and enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
It had a hazy golden color with a modest, slightly off white colored head. The head has very good retention as it hangs on well and leaves lots of cool white lace rings on the glass.
Smell: The aroma has a slightly floral bouquet with solid citrus and pine notes in the nose.
Taste/Mouth feel: There is a solid hop presence up front and throughout. It is not over the top or in your face bitter hops but it brings solid fruity citrus and piney to the overall character. The hops are tempered by a nice biscuity malt and dry earthy yeast that give it some balance and nice complexity. The finish is slow with dry yeast and hop flavors lingering a bit but not overstaying there welcome. The body has a good solid medium feel and hardy texture with average carbonation.

Bottle. Hops, malt, spices, caramel/molasses?, earth, leaves. Medium body. Decent texture but it just doesn’t have enough flavor. It’s gone before I can figure out what it is. Plain.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the 12 pack
Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a huge bubbly off white head that persists forever. Smells of bread citrus and light caramel with a hint of fruity esters. Flavor is quite malty for an IPA with huge bread and caramel notes offset with just enough earthy hops to keep it from being too sweet. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet somewhat chalky mouthfeel. Middle of the road, old school, English inspired pale ale.
