Gravity dispense at GBBF ’13, 15/08/13 as ’St Georges English Style IPA’. Cheers to Joris for the pour. Hazed golden amber with a thin off white head. Nose is fruit forward, toasted malts, orange, citrus tones. Taste comprises orange pith, light mango strains, sugar, subtle hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dryish finish. Ok drinkable stuff.

From cask. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is peachy and greasy grapefruity. Bitter, crisp hoppy and light toasted malty. Mango and passion fruity, medium dry and malt is clearly there to balance the hops. Bitter and toasted malty finish.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. Citrus (grapefruit) smell and taste. 2nd try at Blacksburg Taphouse. Very hoppy with more pine resin than last time. Malt backbone in there, but otherwise not too complex. Lasting finish.

Decent IPA needs a bit more alcohol and hops to really stand out amongst everything out now a days

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Pours a nice amber with huge white fluffy head that has massive retention. Aromas are very faint and mostly light apricot/peach and some caramel. The flavor is the nicest part of this beer featuring strong caramel, soap, honey and bitterness that I can only describe as Fuggle-y. Palate is nice, not too heavy but with a denseness that fits this beer. Overall, the style is more reminiscent of a hoppy ESB than a straight up English IPA; this is much more in line with a hoppy pub ale and as such it tastes quite nice, but this can’t compare to a really good English IPA.

Butters (3943) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Clear amber pour with ample offwhite head. Defenitely a little old. Smells and tastes of old faded english hops (not noble). Has a lingering bitterness after the caramel malt sweetness fades. A little fusel alcohol burn/spiciness which could be coming from the hops i suppose. A decent english ipa, but nothing amazing.

CJfromPhilly (139) - Aston, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Pours from the 12 oz bottle an impressive copper color with a foamy 2 finger head. There seems to be almost no carbonation going on inside the glass, I had to look really hard to find a small handful of tiny bubbles. Aroma is surprisingly faint with almost no hop presence...I get mostly the aroma of toasted malt. 1st sip brings a sharp note of spicy, piney hops, but it’s not the overwhelming in-your-face hoppiness that comes with most American IPAs. Mouthfeel is right down the middle, neither watery of heavy. Overall, this is a decent, very drinkable IPA, a refreshing change from all the overdone hop bombs out there.

Sampled one bottle at the Williamsburg Inn Restoration Bar, in Colonial Williamsburg. One of my least favorites among the several locals sampled on this trip. This IPA is British in style, not an American hop-styled IPA.

blackflag321 (560) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Bottle pour into pint. Copper color. Not hoppy like American IPAs, but a mellow balance of hops and malts. Full bodied. Went well with my meal of pork loin and home made mac and cheese.
