COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our English Style Export IPA features 100% English hops and a big malt backbone built upon pale and caramel malted barley. The hop varietals, Pilgrim and East Kent Goldings, lend a quality of lemon and spice, which play off of the fruity flavors contributed by the London ale yeast.

12oz 6pack from Spirits Brick. Poured a thicker clear body orange with tons of floating sediment and an average to larger foamy mostly white head. Aroma is spicy and peppery, lemon and dry tropical fruits, grassy hops and medium toast. Flavor has a surprising amount of pepper spice throughout, rotting fruits, old bread. Fuller big bodied, stronger carbonation, and a dry bitter finish.

Transfer from BA review on 8-27-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazy golden orange color with a small half finger of white foam. The more fizzy foam fades relatively quickly leaving a decent level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is sweeter and citrusy. The sweet is a mix of tangerine, tropical fruit, and caramel. They are all accompanied by a lemongrass and light floral hop smell. Rounding these smells out is a little bit of pine, overall producing a rather present aroma. Taste – The taste starts out with some caramel sweetness with a bit of a smooth bready nature mixed with it. Upfront there is some lemongrass and a little bit of grapefruit hop. The hop flavor is lighter upfront, but soon gets quite a bit stronger. While the grapefruit remains light throughout, the lemongrass gets stronger and is joined by a rather stronger earthy, vegetal, and herbal taste. More biscuit joins the taste with the herbal and vegetal growing even more potent at the very end leaving a rather bitter but nice taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average overall. Both create a nice base for maintaining drinkability as well as still supporting the nice earthy hop flavors. Overall – A rather enjoyable brew overall with a good dose of herbal, earthy, and lemongrass hop flavors.

32oz growler I picked up at Whole Foods Falls Church. Pours a hazy dark gold with some fluffy, lacing, white head. Nose is solid, piney, mild soap, bitter, lightly earthy, a little woody, some malt, a little yeast too. Flavor follows along, very piney, quite woody too, some soap, some mild rosemary, some earthy notes, orange too. Big, bitter, soapy finish.

haddon90 (1468) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a foggy copper color with a thick, frothy head. Nice, tangy hoppy aroma with a hint of caramel. Hoppy taste with brown sugar and caramel notes. Very, very delicious. Could use a little more hops, but that is really picking at things.

Another nice beer from Schlafly. Pours light amber with a fluffy head. The aroma is malt sweetness and earth and grass. The flavor is nicely balanced with some citrus and pine. Finishes dry and tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
