Great looking in a Tulip Glass. Very little head. Well balanced and smoothe IPA. Not many fruit tones from the hops, but an all around hoppy taste. The taste of malt lingers afterwards. I could drink a 6 pack and not be displeased. Not all in one sitting though.

Pours a nice gold color with hints of red. Aroma of citrus, malt. Well-balanced taste with malt and hop. Pretty good everyday IPA.

An excellent every day drinking IPA that showcases EKG hops in both aroma and flavor, preserves a healthy malt/hop balance, and mixes with pretty much any pub grub, or enjoyable on its own. Well done. Wish it was year round.

From tap at brewery. Pours a nice golden yellow with decent white head. aroma is all citrus fruity hops. Taste was fruity with a light malt bill and very little bitter. A mild IPA but good!

Pours golden yellow amber with a fluffy white head. Aroma is pineapple citrus fruit, slightly floral and with notes of malt. Taste is also slightly fruity - again noticeable citrus (pineapple or mango even). Some malt flavor and background hops with a slightly bitter finish and aftertaste. Don't expect an AIPA - this is more in the English style. A tasty beer - perhaps a bit too sweet and under hopped. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear golden straw yellow with a slight orange hue and an average white bubbly head that reduced down to a small collar with fair spotty lacing. The aroma was lightly sweet with a light grain malt, mild floral hops and a doughy yeast with notes of tropical fruit (pineapple and mango), and caramel. The taste was lightly sweet with a hint of caramel and fruit from the start with a mild hoppy bitterness creeping in towards the finish. The flavor lasted a good long while proceeding the swallow with a slightly hoppy fruitiness left to linger on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was just past light in body and somewhat watery in texture with a mild to medium carbonation. Overall I thought this was a bit on the mild side for an IPA, it most definitely could have been a tad heavier on the hops. With that being said it still was extremely tasty and did possess a very smooth drinkability... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

I liked this one. Pours clear light amber with a small head. The aroma has a nice floral essence. The flavor is sweet with a good hop bite. Dry and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chinchill (1715) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow-amber with a very good head. Has a light and fruity aroma of English hops and light malt. The taste may seem lightly hopped, with at most the hoppiness of an average Amer. PA, but this is an English-style India Pale Ale, so the hop level was about as expected. The hops seemed more fruity and less earthy than usual. Mildly bitter with good balance. Palate: Medium body; crisp, dry finish. O: Easy-drinking and refreshing ale; easily recommended alternative to an APA.

Soft pale straw yellow pour with one finger of soft white head. Aroma is peachy/fruity with a lightly creamy character and bready malt. Interesting. Flavor is fruity with soft bready notes and a crisp mouthfeel. Medium-coating palate with a soft bitterness.
