3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on tap at the 2012 Schlafly Hop In The City festival. It poured a hazy golden light amber color with weak white head, no lace. 100% true-to-style English style IPA aromas and flavors. It appears they used traditional Fuggles and Goldings hops. Earthy, flowery, citrusy (but not grapefruity), mild but not masked malt sweetness. Well-concealed elevated alcohol. This was the least audacious, and in my opinion, likely the best IPA of the fest.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Seems to be more in the English style. Good balance and understated.

Golden brown. More gold than brown. Head hws a slight yellow tint to it. Smellsnof hops and lemon/citrus. Flavor starts off very nice. Malt, citrus and bitter hops. Then everything fades and you are left with just a dry bitter taste.

Pour form a 12oz bottle. AMber brew with nice off white head. Aroma of light malts, brown sugar, foral hops. Taste is a solid malt backbone with floral and herbal hops rolling in mid swallow. Nice blend of sweet and bitter, easy drinking and tasty English style IPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear bright orange/yellow with nice long lasting white head, good lacing. Smell is bready malts, grass and earthy hops and some caramel sweetness. Taste is sweet breads, a little marzipan, very little citrus hops, caramel, earthy hops. Finish is a tad creamy and full for an IPA. Overall, I am torn on this beer. It is a nice English style IPA, quite malty. I can respect this and for a malty ipa it is quite nice. However, I like my bitterness and citrus notes. So, for some this will be perfect, but for me it is a glad I tried it but moving on.
