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.

Poured a very clear deep copper color with a small off-white head that quickly dissipated. Aromas of honey and spices. The flavor was a nice mix of caramel malts and hoppy spices. Medium body with a lasting bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2012 pours a rich amber, topped with firm white head. The nose is thick sweet oranges, like marmelade, a hefty dose of spice. Lots of caramel malt sweetness, balancing out the hop bite in the background. Actually quite drinkable.
Had on draft at Moto Salon in Charlottesville, wonderfully smooth and moreish pint of IPA, laden with the delights of Fuggles. Quite possibly my favourite IPA in Virginia.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light amber. Very nice aroma of earthy hops. Smooth taste with some yeast and a good amount of hops. It is nice for the $, especially if you like a more earthy tasting IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Kind of low abv. for an IPA, but here we go. Pours a very nice copper color, white head, great lace. The aroma is pale malt, amber malt, and a hind of herbal malt. The flavor has a fruity quality to the malt profile, and not much of a hop character at all. Overall: not bad, but not an IPA in the least.
