3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
It pours a hazy orange/amber with a large foamy off-white head that lasts for a good portion of the brew. Clingy foamy lacing graces the sides of the glass. The smell is hops, pine, and citrus up front, malts come in as the beer warms. The taste is sweet yet bitter at different times ranging between the hops/pine/citrus to the malts, very balanced. The palate is medium and has a nice creaminess around the tongue. This is very sessionable as the ABV is not felt. It leaves a watery aftertaste and finish. Overall, this is a solid AIPA that I would come back to, and lighter than most AIPA’s on the palate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Murky, tarnished copper. One finger of orange-white foam bubbles away quickly. Nose: orange peel, wet grass, lavender, honey, caramelized sugars. Good malt sweetness matched with floral hop bitterness in the flavor. Apricot, biscuits, orange juice. The seesaw is just a bit lower on the bitter side. Very high carbonation -- almost too high. Medium-light body. Light, watery. Works with the beer, though.

Can pour. Aroma is resinous hop with a bit of earthy notes. Taste is well balanced between some malt sweetness with a sharp bitterness. Overall this is a great IPA. The malts balance out the piney hops just right.

Piwo z puszki 355ml w JDW ’Globe’ Kings Lynn, podane w szklance typu tulip. Barwa pomarańczowa, piana drobno pęcherzykowa, utrzymuje się do końca, pięknie oblepia szkło. Intensywne aromaty cytrusowe i żywiczne, w smaku grejpfrut i mandarynki. Mocna goryczka dobrze zbalansowana słodowością. Wygląd, zapach i smak tego piwo świetnie się uzupełniają.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can. BBD 17 Nov. 15. Pours a thick, gradually collapsing, ivory head, with extensive lacing, over a clear Amber (SRM 12) body.....nose is toasted malts, with light biscuit,herbal hop notes, no esters, balanced......taste Is slightly sweet with hints of toffee/caramel, light floral hints, ending with light bitterness, balanced......mouth feel, light of medium body, no alcohol, carbonation adds heavy foam. Per the breweries description this is an English IPA. There are no American hop notes in either aroma or flavor. The bitterness is relatively low and quite gentle from the lower alpha acid East Kent Goldings. The result is a soft IPA that tastes good, but is quite atypical for an American IPA. BJCP 8/3/15/5/7
