COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Voted best English style IPA in the USA. This classic IPA has a copper color, generous hop flavor and aromas, and the maltiness of premium English barley - perfectly balanced with 6% alcohol by volume.

12oz bottle from Georgio’s Liquors, Billerica, MA, ABV 6.5%. Amber with a creamy head; the aroma has caramel and spicy hops; the taste is similar with the herbal hops offsetting the sweetness of the caramel nicely; before a dry finish, with some resinous hops and warmth in the background. Rather good and certainly English in style, but reminding me of a good ESB rather than an IPA.

From a 12 oz bottle shared in Park CIty UT. Pours a clear gold with an off white lacey head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of light citrus and some biscuit. Medium bodied, short bitter finish.

6r from total wine. Cold mug first then out if bottle. Taste excellent blend of hops and goodness. Aroma lingers too much grapefruit. Hint of piney. Rather have more piney less grapefruit. Could use more hops bit defeats 6.5 abv. Solid for abv but again, less grapefruit needed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy amber with a mild hop aroma. Little to no head retention. Nice flavor of hops initially, with good mouth feel. Good hop bitterness on the back side. Not a bad beer!

Bottle thanks to Sledutah. These guys need a better label. Pours a clear orange with a slight foamy white head. Aroma of peach and light bread. Tastes slightly bitter but goes down easy. On the thin side with slightly high carbonation.
