3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong example of the style for hop-heads, though not much beyond. Pleasing copper color under a firm head has a malty smell that doesn't appear in the taste. Mouthfeel is nice, though hop bite kind of hits you with few subtleties. Hoppy enough to get me sneezing, though the matliness returns in the aftertaste. Sampled on draft.

12 oz. poured into a pint glass. Clear, copper pour. Not much head. Bready, malty nose. Some floral, bitter hop smell as well. A malty taste with a bit of hop spiciness. Nothing to write home about but drinkable. Decent.

On tap. Served a dark amber color with a small head and some lacing. Aroma of citrus, malt sweetness and a bit herbal. Taste of malt, citrus and some caramel sweetness. Easy bitterness and a clean finish. Moderate body, smooth with a bit of a hoppy. Enjoyable beer.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2014 funky pizza dough on the nose with other, basement aromas. Some sweet and subtle honey, bitter flowers, tart cherries. Thin and unimpressive mouth-feel.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Yeasty bread aroma with a hint of citrus in a light body. Watery and light upfront with some hop bitterness that follows. Not nearly as hoppy as expected. Pretty pleasant and easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear copper pour with a 1 finger, creamy beige head. Aroma is earthy, spicy and floral hops, some caramel, light, but sharp tree fruit and toast. Flavor is tree fruity and toasty up front, then a little cereal, tea-like earthy bite, a hint of dried citrus peels and some light nut skin notes toward the finish. Light to medium body, creamy entry, medium carbonation and dry, somewhat biting finish. Good stuff overall, not really the most English-y English IPA.
