Floral hops in the nose, and very grainy grassy body. Not my favorite IPA in the last decade. Anne liked it. On tap at Tap and Mallet.

Penny orange body with a little haze and a creamy tan head. The aroma is faint herbal hops. Flavor is light honey and floral hop that reminds me of some English kow-key ales. Slight bitterness. Flavor is pretty watery. Well balanced body at least. It’s fine.

12oz can Best buy date 12/13 so fresh as well. Lighter orange color, white head frothy and slow to dissipate, plenty of carbonation and appears unfiltered. Very weak aroma I can kind of pick up some pine hops. Taste like regular beer more than anything, malt dominates the hops which really don’t bring a lot of bitterness. So English malt heavy with tastes more skunky and alcoholish than normal. Dissappointed

Bottle. This did not strike as something worth trying again. A pretty basic IPA with off hop flavors.

Cask at Brewpub. Pours orange with a thin white head that leaves a lot of lacing. Definitly less hoppy and less interesting than the ESB. Not a lot on the nose. Has some fruitiness on the tongue. Finishes clean with no bitterness. Eh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours muddy amber orange with off white head. Nose/taste of citrus rind, caramel malt, earth and ripe fruit. Medium body. Finishes a bit grainy with some bitter overripe fruit. Very malt forward - a bit too malty/grainy.
