UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014 A true English style IPA. Pours a reddish brown, very similar to a Newcastle. Taste is somewhat smooth, but carries a heavy swallow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 9-18-2011 (Bottle) The appearance is a small semi-fizzy ivory head that mostly diminishes, mostly transparent/slightly hazy amber body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus, pine hops, sweet, and fruity. The taste is sweet, lightly bitter, caramel malt, and citrus hops. The mouthfeel is lively and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is not overly hoppy tasting and is easy drinking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into an Imperial pint glass. The label has a brief deScription of the beer, its abv (6%) and IBUs (60).
Appearance: The body has a medium reddish amber color with a light haze. This is topped off with a small, very light tan head. The head quickly settles to a thin film with a light ring clinging to the sides of the glass. This makes a little slick lacing at the top of the glass.
Smell: It has a nice leafy and somewhat herbal hop character with plenty of bready and sweet malty notes to back up the hops.
Taste/Palate: There is a solid bready malt base with nice mellow sweetness and some soft caramel notes. Moving on to the finish and it brings pleasant hop bitterness and spicy leafy hop flavor. The feel and carbonation is well balanced and extremely drinkable.
Notes: Overall it has great balance in both flavor and body. This is a beer drinkers beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
July 8, 2011 - with blankboy, JoeMcPhee, jerc and mabel. Bomber c/o of blankboy. Slightly hazy amber with a smallish off-white head. Odd aroma - paint, floral bitterness, sweet and candyish. Taste is more like a golden ale, grassy with oily cereal grain, again oddly sugary, but at least there is more bitterness in the flavour - dry, stale and a bit papery too - (6-). Astringent, weak carbonation, watery, with a long slightly harshly bitter finish - odd aftertaste too. Erm ...

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle-pours amber with a tan head. Aroma is nutty/cocoa-barley/medium malt/oats, some spice. Taste is roasty/nutty/cocoa-barley/medium malt/oats, some spice/earthy hops. Not what I expected, and out of the style box to my view, but probably in the hoppy English Brown Ale category. Quite enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(bottle - 22 oz) Slightly hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Grassy and hoppy aroma with a very light and mild caramel backbone. Balances quite nicely. Flavor is a bit malty at the start that gives way quickly to a lightly floral and peppery finish. Nicely balanced and easy to drink.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized yellow tan colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent light brown colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was malty and woody. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The bubbly flavor contained notes of mild brown malt and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.
