3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Short lived head atop a golden brew. A lovely hoppy aroma from this beer. A gently hoppy and smooth taste. Best served ice cold. Hugely drinkable!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong toffee maltiness in the aroma with some tea and herbal hops. Deep orange color, thin beige crown. Toffee malt thoughout the flavor with some notes of tea, herbal hops and a floral finish. Mild bitterness. Medium body, quite smooth. This is an excellent English style IPA and is a great change from all of the American citrus hop bombs.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Epsom Circle Market, Epsom, NH. Aroma is slightly metallic--like a bunch of coins sitting in a jar. Or like rotting food that needs to be brought out to the compost bin. Appearance is hazy orange-gold with two-finger frothy head that dissipates relatively quickly. Trace sparkling and light lacing. Taste is mild--only slightly sweet and bitter, but mainly sour. Palate is light-medium and texture is mostly thin with slight creaminess. Finish is bitter. Overall, not my cup of tea. I canít really comment whether this is good for the style or not--I think this is just not my style. Disappointing. Most stuff from this brewer I like.

550 ml bottle. Aroma is malty, fruity (apples), characteristic of the brewery. Pours clear copper with a thick beige head with decent retention; leaves some lace. Taste is sweet and malty, finishing with a lightly bitter hop bite. Ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2015 18.7 oz bottle- Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a large white head that slowly reduces. Aroma is earthy, floral, minerals similar to all Sam Smith beers, some peppery spice. Taste is caramel malts, citrusy, minerals, lightly hopped. Carbonation is medium and body is medium. Better than i thought it would be, love their stouts and porters, but am pretty accustomed to American IPAís, this isnít as intense and in your face as those, but this isnít too bad.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
550 ml bottle from Cost Plus. Aroma of biscuit malt with a bit of hops. Hop-forward in flavor, but of the tame citrus variety, with minimal bitterness on a malty, biscuity base. Moderate carbonation and full-bodied. Flavorful throughout with a touch of dryness at the finish. So drinkable. A good example that a solid IPA doesnít have to be over the top.
