St. George India Pale Ale is a traditional English style ale with a distinct hop spiciness from imported 100% UK Fuggles hops. Deep copper in color, our IPA has a full malt base and a pronounced hop aroma. It was awarded the GOLD medal in the international category as the best India Pale Ale at the 2000 Beauty of Hops English Ale Awards.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a copper/orange color with a couple inch off-white head that sticked around for a while. Thereís also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is herbal and citrusy (orange, lemon peel) hops, and some bready malt. The brew tastes like herbal and citrusy (grapefruit, oranges) hops, and some bready and caramel malt. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís a bit creamy but also has a little too much carbonation for me. I still think itís a decent enough brew overall, itís certainly worth trying. Iíd like to have this one again in the future.

Bottled. Pours clear amber with a thin and quickly dissipating off-white head. The aroma is malty, bready and slightly sweet. The first thing to note in the taste are the malts, with a sweet, bready almost nutty flavor, followed by bitterness from the hops. Lingering aftertaste.

Iím no expert, but I have read that there is a difference between an American IPA and an English IPA. That being said this may be a good example of an English. Poured from a 12 once bottle -- clear copper color with a slight white head. I thought a good balance of hops and malt, but not as hoppy as the American IPAs that I prefer.

DiarmaidBHK (3524) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine Sterling. Pours orange with a finger of white foam. Pours light orange without much going on with the aroma. Has a slight hint of hop flavor. The finish fades pretty quickly as does the flavor. Pretty boring for the style.

Pours a cloudy amber color with medium head that dissipates almost to nothing. Pine and grassy hops with hint of toasted malt. Medium bitterness throughout with a medium and acidic finish. Thin to medium palate. small to moderate carbonation and thin, slightly slick palate. I would call this a very average IPA.

Cask-conditioned at the Capital Alehouse (downtown), Richmond VA 9/11/2011. Slightly hazy, Deep amber with a moderate, off-white head. Aroma of sweetish malts, citrus fruit and leafy hops. Flavour of cereal malts and hedgerow fruit leading to a decent, bitter finish. Pretty good beer.

On tap @ 11th Street Taphouse, Virginia Beach Va-Clear Copper/Amber pour w/a white head. Hop aroma. Very heavy hop bite on the front end, a lot of citrus, pine tar, pitch, pretty one dementional. I didnít fine any malt lt base in this brew, it was just a one dementional hop bomb to me. Nothing special.

12oz bottle from the brewery with the new "English IPA" label; same beer confirmed with the brewery. Nice clear copper color with a small white head and a little lacing. Strange aroma that honestly reminded me of fresh pumpkin? Flavor was fairly balanced with slight bitterness up front and then some sweeter malt in the finish. Okay.
