Aroma is fruit, malts and very slightly perfumed. The flavor is citrus, malts, mineral water qualities and a mildly nutty/tart finish.

bottle in NY. didn’t pour so no idea of appearance. must say though, aroma and taste were pretty disappointing. tasted more like a lager than an IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Virginia Beach, VA. Dark orange pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of light citrus, pine, and caramel. Good hop bitterness of grapefruit rind, wet grass, and pine needles that is balanced with a good amount of caramel malt. Important to note that this is a British-style IPA and I think a very good example of one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Burnished golden color with a frothy off white head. Light malty nose with some earthy hops. This lives up to the English IPA label. The US sure has mutated this style. Malty sweetness with some chalk and toast with a strong hop pellet bitterness.

From bottle. Pours amber red in color with small white head. Aroma was sweet with citrus and floral hop nose. Taste is a little sweet for my liking and not exactly a English IPA.
