3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
From FalconA. Thanks!
A: Pours a light almost clear copper with an almost complete absence of head. Plenty of bubbles rising throughout the body.
N: Sweet juicy hops. Tangerine, pineapple, and grapefruit. Biscuit and some caramel. Lots of citrus with a touch of dirt and leaves. I get some flowery elements, maybe some lavender.
T: Expressively bitter. There is a lot of pine and hoppiness. Very sharp, more so than I normally prefer. As I get to used to it, the residual sweetness shows up in the very back of the tongue.
M: Very, very dry and moderately resinous. Medium bodied and alcohol is barely noticeable.
O: A very solid IPA and one that I appreciate the chance to try. Blends together the citrus and the pine without overpowering the senses. not to say it’s a pushover, eithe. Recommended.

Pours a translucent yellow/orange color with a white head that fades. Smell is sweet and fruity with some hops in the background. Taste is citrusy, fruity, sweet, with a medium malt profile that works very well with the hops. Easy drinking summer beer after a soccer game.

Bottle courtesy of GandGKevin. Thanks Kevin! Amber pour with a short white head. Strong citrus, floral hops, pine and soft malt int he aroma. Taste is big citrus fruit, light pine, floral hops, tropical fruit notes and toasted malt. Body is medium with a strong, bubbly carbonation and a pleasant lingering aftertaste. Slightly oily on the palate as well. Ends with more big citrus notes, tropical fruit, soft malty notes, light caramel, soft pine and floral hops. Yummy!

Bottle @ home via trade with barak316. Thanks Bill! Pours a clear burnt orange appearance with an off white head. Spicy, dank hoppy, skunky, toasty malty, citrusy aroma. Herbal, grassy, toasted malty, grapefruity, spicy, bready flavor with a slight vanilla cake taste. Not my favorite but not bad.

At home, bottle pour to mug, with lobster boiling. Looks like summer golf. Great citrus aroma. Great grapefruit-bitter taste. Delicious.

Orange and gold pour with a white head. Aroma is earthy, dank with some citrus. Taste is similar with a minor malt balance. Tastes like an English pale ale hopped up. Tasty!

Bottle:   Darker amber, thin to moderate foamy white head, nice lacing.   Soft hoppy nose.   Seems to be a very muted hop, not terribly bitter, slight citrus peel, perhaps some dank basement.   Looking at the English flag on the label makes me think its one of those hop types that isnt too bitter, but instead has a dank/basement aspect.   Oh look, its Citra!   Very smooth, bigger than a Pale but as an IPA, seems almost too smooth (lacks a bit bitterness punch).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes fairly soft, nothing real biting, and certainly a bit muted.   Lacks any zest of any sort.   However, its clean and unoffensive.   Thanks to JStax for the bottle!
