3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nearly clear copper to hazelnut pour with a 1 finger, off white head. Aroma is sweet fruity and floral citrus, light pine, light grapefruit, toast, caramel, toffee, grass and biscuit. Flavor is deep caramel, some toffee and biscuit up front giving way to hay, planty hops, lots of sweet and bitter citrus, grass, pine, toast and fruity yeast. Medium body, off dry throughout and lightly carbonated. Good stuff, nice example of a complex, but citrus and caramel forward IPA.

Beautiful amber-red color. Very, very hoppy, but after a few swigs not so harsh. The orange peel is a great complement to the hops. Body is very full but doesn’t feel heavy.

Taster on tap at Old Fashioned in Madison, Wisconsin. Clear orange amber color. Nice thicker creamy off-white head. Leaves nice thicker lace. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. Good full creamy texture to it. Light dry finish. Nice citrusy aroma, light spice, some light piney earthy hop. Caramel malt. Moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. Good hoppy pale ale.

Pours a copper color with a thick, lasting head. Aroma is minimal with just hints of bread and citrus. Taste has more of a bitter start that I expected from the aroma. The malt and citrus bring some sweetness to balance the hops before a nice, bitter finish. Overall a pretty classic English / East coast IPA profile with a touch of citrus added just like the label says.

Tap at New Bohemia. Really attractive copper color with a limited amount of head. Very fresh taste. Sweeter than expected bit with ample hops. Surprisingly not as citrusy as I thought. A smooth option with a pretty solid finish. Kind of your standard IPA. If nothing better on your way to the US on some old school pilgrim boat, this is OK.
