Pours a gorgeous reddish brown capped with a smallish white head that nonetheless leaves an ample lace behind. At 7.7 percent this one is no session beer, and it wears its alcohol content on its sleeve. Hops tend to be more fruity than resiny and the malt character is classic English. Well done, and very mild for such a heady brew.

Cask (no sparkler by request) at the brewpub. Hazy dark amber red with a small off-white head. Pretty dark for an ipa, and a little too turbid. The aroma has a rich caramel ad toffee maltiness with a touch of butterscotch. Hops are piney and floral and are slightly less vivid than the malt and yeast aromas. The flavor is more hop-centric with a piney bitterness that dominates the finish. Rich caramel and buttered toffee malt flavors still abound. The finish is long and bitter and shows a touch of alcohol. Medium bodied with light carbonation. Very malty for an ipa and the lack of hop aromatics is another detractor. If they ha called this a hoppy English atrong ale I might have been more convinced.

Pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of citrus and grain. Bitter and light hops - kind of disappointing IPA from RB though. I wasnt a huge fan.

Draft at RBC. Pours a deep amber, quite dark for an IPA. Nose is woody and a touch of citrus. Toasty grain as well. Not a whole lot going on. On taste, there is a distinct toffee and toast note, followed by somewhat restrained hop character and bitterness. This really comes across like an amped up amber, not so much an IPA. Meh.
