English style IPA which nicely balances the forward hops with drinkability. You get more of the greeny hop flavor on first sip and bitterness is much more reserved. You could drink a lot of it. Refreshing and a good example of the style.

Bottle. Copper with orange tinges and frothy off white head. Subtle aromas of earthy hops, a touch of citrus blossom and a deep biscuit malt base. Upfront bitterness of earthy hops, with elements of grapefruit and resin. Well integrated sweet biscuity malt, but the dry, earthy bitterness continues throughout the beer right to the end. I love the English style of IPA. I wish more brewers would take it on.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Brewer’s Haven. Pours a flat copper color, fairly clear, lots of small bubbles, and a thin creamy off-white head. Aroma is sweet, malty. Some citrus, but its faint. Lightly bitter up front, a little more of the malty sweetness in the tail. Floral and tropical fruit notes, light clean finish. Some hints of honey. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice floral/spicy hop scents, not the overwhelming pine/citrus of NW Cascade hops, much more subtle. Dark golden with a beige head that leaves nice lacing. Crisp and lightly floral, sweetness balances nice, easy drinking for sure. Nice to know I’m helping an endangered species by drinking good beer.

Had as part of a flight, enjoyed it, but the glass had that sterilized dishwasher taste which affected flavour and nose.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy dark gold (poor lighting) with a flimsy white head. Fresh aromas: caramel, resin, grass, dough, cheese, and some alcohol. Decently balanced flavor with a nod to bitter, Finish is more of the same. It’s good.
