Floral hop aroma. Body is a deep tea-like brown with a small off white head and spotty lacing. Flavor is nicely hopped with a good balanced maltiness. Finish is slightly sweet and just a touch bitter. Easily drinkable and enjoyable.

Pours to a copper orange color with thick off-whiote head that lingers well into mid-glass and leaves good lacing. Nose is not the citrusy hops I’ve come to appreciate in IPA’s, but tended more toward an earthy malt scent. Motuhfeel was full bodied and a nice mix of tangy-sweet, and the flavor accented a little more of the citrus than did the nose.
Rounded to a nice, long finish. Not a bad beer.

A rather nice IPA, though highly on the thiner side when it comes to the hops. Aroma that’s slightly hoppy with a hint of caramel and maybe some light citrus. Taste is pretty much the same, but more of the citrus is present. Over all, a nice IPA but not huge like the current US market wants.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2008 Copper body - tan head...on the sniff is malts and some grapefruit...more malts than citrus....mild grapefruit on the palate combined with sweet malts...light creamy body, easy to drink.....bitter finish with a piney quality, and a smidge of metallic aftertaste....that went away after it opened up though....decent lacing....just a nice malty IPA

Not my favorite IPA. I usually don’t really enjoy English-style IPAs. This one is thin with little carbonation. A bit of fruitiness in flavor along with some hops.

This beer was way better than I thought it was going to be. Bottle: pours a very pretty deep orange. Citrus hop, telltale English malts make this a very well-rounded beer with a surprisingly bitter finish very characteristic of English Pale Ales. Tasty without being bready.

1 pint, .9 fl oz.
Purchased at: Circle Liquors, Pennington, NJ
Consumed on: 2/3/2008 at 11 pm
first impression: Beautiful. enticing smell and allure. Rich amber tones. Frothy, solid head. bubbly. Quite malty and flavorful. Smooth and without edges, but full flavor and enjoyable light bite.
Color, depth: medium dark. color intensifies at concave point, and pales at edges. Remarkable color.
Belgian lace, legs: lace is light, but head is good.
Aroma: mellow, delicious aroma. flowery.
Hoppiness, bite: Only a light bite but very nice.
Maltiness, flavor: malty, hoppy, and delicious, without being overbearing on any front.
Weight: A hefty, full, weighty feel in the hand.
Mouthfeel: dry and only slightly cloying. Memorable.
second impression: This is a delicious and enjoyable brew, but does not know you over the head with bite or flavorings. It is a mellower IPA with lesser bitterness, but would do better paired with lighter fare. A great example of a well balanced brew.

Pour: Deep amber with white head. Hops and pine to the nose. Dont know if I had a bad beer or not, but it tasted like an old gym sock was thrown into the bottle. Couldn’t even finish it. Very unhappy with this one.

Wow nice IPA! Sweet hoppy aroma and taste, but seemed like it needed a bit more carbonation, but all around a good beer with mad hops!

Orange amber with small head. Citrus hops and sweet caramel bready malts. Taste is very sweet. Also has faint pepperiness to the hops. Remains aphoristically English as it is not "hoppy" by American standards. Balanced. Alcohol is well hidden.
