Pleasant auroma and beautiful pour. Sweet and fruity, with a bit of a bitter aftertaste. Oh well, it comes in a nice bottle that will work perfect for the homemade wine.

The after it’s de-corking for the 750ml brown bottle resides in the glass a beclouded amber with a prestigious creamy light tan head, the lace forms a tight skirt around the glass. Nose is rich in hops, sweet malt, and a citrus-like crispness that makes the mouth water, start is sweet with a pleasing grain profile, the top is middling in its feel to the palate. Finish is nicely hopped, mildly acidic and the aftertaste desert bone dry, a nice IPA, that hits the "B" spot after a long day of toil and trouble, worth a sample.

Hazy light orange body. This had sat for a few days, so I imagine the haze is normal. The frothy head is eggshell colored. The aroma is orange peels with some light apples and a hint of dry hay. The taste is sweet caramel along with some apple chips and a little bit of grapefruit in the finish. A nice smooth brew. It is certainly interesting to find an IPA in a corked and caged bottle.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Procured at Belmont Party Supply, Dayton, OH. Great aroma, all fruity, peachy Fuggles with big straw elements too. Love this aroma. Could smell it all day. Beautiful bright gold color, head tight then loose in bubbles. Interesting there...Nicely bitter in the flavors, strawlike, grassy, herbal. Very little touch of grapefruit. A bit of iron, vegetal bits and biscuit, but the malt here is otherwise nonexistent. Thin. Still, however, a very good English styled IPA. I think it a tad underrated here, due no doubt to the existence of so many pine and citrus hop bombs around...

orange colored pour. malty smelling, not so much hoppy smelling as im used to from american ipas. taste is smooth and refreshing, very easy to drink. not too bitter, and just a downright good ipa. a starter ipa if you will. thanks for this one daniel. pretty underrated in my opinion.
