Bottle. Poured orange gold with cloudy lasting head. Aroma is less impressing Sort of piney, sort of hoppy. Flavour is restrained hop. Even tho’ British IPAs are less hoppy than American, this is less hoppy than most British IPAs. Light hop finish

Draft at The Pony Bar. The balance leans a bit toward sweetness, but with a drying hop finish. This is a very pleasant English-style IPA - I’m glad I got some fresh.

Bottle... Poured copper/orange with a thin head. Aroma was faint with a hint of malt. Tasted of stale malts and sweet tart candies. Drying. Not overly bitter or astringent. Not totally offensive, but kind of boring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is caramel up front, some citrus, and bread/dough. The appearance is clear light amber color, white head. The flavor is caramel, bread, citrus, light metal. The finish is pine, citrus, metal. Medium to medium/thick in body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty nice. I’m not sure I get the effects of the burtonized water. Maybe the maltiness of this overpowers here. Still, a nice beer.

Cask at the old toad rochester. Pours light golden hue no head. Nose is nice with malt, faint caramel, flowers, and grapefruit. Bitterness is cutting but lets up before one gets nasty light face. The cask made this creamy and easy to gulp. Danger Will Robinson, DANGER!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is of grassy and floral hops, some spice, citrus and biscuit and cracker like malt. Taste follows nose. Slightly bitter. Definitely hop dominated but very balanced, more so than I like in an ipa. It is pretty good and drinkable but nothing great. I regret buying a full 6 pack.

Bottle. Amber color. Smells sweet, bready and grassy. Kin of bitter like an ESB but had a mild hoppy bite. If I was going to have an IPA in England, I would assume it would taste likes this

On tap at Prohibition Taproom, served in a pint glass. Poured medium clean amber with think off white head that provided solid lacing. Aroma was malty, biscuit, doughy yeast with mild, almost nonexistent, hints of hop citrus and grass. Taste is bready malt, sourdough, fairly sweet with a little hop bitterness.
