3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Amberish, a bit fiery, clear, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Somewhat of a soft biscuity nose, hops are a bit weak, tea like perhaps.   Not a sharp or strong IPA from the smell of it.   Soft bitterness up front, a touch of earth, a touch of tea leaves.   Not very bright, yet not dull.   Seems more of a Pale Ale to me, but then again I live in the land of Hops.   Towards the back there is a little bit of citrus coming through, which is nice.   Seems to have more going on with the tongue than on the nose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes clean, soft hops linger... very soft.   Nice citrus based malt sweetness also presides.   Decent IPA, but could stand to be a bit sharper and more vibrant on the nose.

From bottle to tulip. Citrus piney aroma. Balance sweet and dry bitter finish. Not bad, light and refreshing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A fairly mild IPA. Not as much bitterness as I usually expect from the style. Maybe Iím just spoiled now?

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thx Andy. Pours deep caramel, chunky white head. Nose is light hop and a little wood/sawdust, powerful earthy grittiness on the tongue, notes of citrus in there but "grainy" is my theme.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Breukelen Bier Merchants. Clear orange with an orange tinged fleeting head. Aroma of hops (earthy, light pine, light tropical fruits), light sulfer and minerals, a sweet malt. Flavor is of hops, earth, minerals, subtle dactyl (good), starts sweet and ends dry a moderately bitter. Very light and clean on the palate. This seems to be a pretty true to style English pale ale. Itís quite enjoyable and nice for a change.

bubblegum smell with mild pine, a little lemon. flavor carries through the sugar sweet, though the hops put up a little more of a fight, quite active in the mouth. quick white head over a clear yellow leaning toward orange. clean finish

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brownish amber color with a wet white head. Caramel, malty nose. Medium bodied English style pale ale. Lighter on hops than most American IPA, but some good minerality in the Burton style on the finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of oranges, sweet caramel, some syrup tones and bready English hops. Flavour of English hops, bready notes, caramel malts, finishing on slightly sweet, very bready English-style hops. Definitely English-styled, but lacking dynamics. A little dull and lifeless, but solid enough.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark gold; big, fluffy head like some kind of meringue. Leaves a thick sheet of lace.
The aroma is heavy wood, with a malt that smells more like a blonde than anything. Some stones, and a hint of broccoli? Itís a curious blend, and yet somehow it works. Cooked vegetables.
The first taste is a curious pebble/mineral flavor. That is followed by an oak flavor; finished wood and pumpernickel bread. There is a residual malt sweetness that sits on the palate; but the malt is not sugary, itís more like honey, with some cereal grains. As it warms up it gets very earthy.
Thick and creamy like an English ale; surprising amount of carbonation on the tongue. Itís a nice, well-balanced, earthy (only slightly hoppy) English IPA.
