12oz bottle -
The beer pours out a golden brown body, clear with a 1/2" scant head. Aroma is mostly herbal hops, and carries strong notes of herbal tea. Flavor shows up a lemony, citrusy hop flavor, dry with a woody, green leaf finish. Body is on the thin side. Not a bad beer, but very English and more of a pale ale than an IPA.
Tap. Pours clear rich golden, small off-white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is grassy and floral, hints of bready malts. Flavor is light sweet and light plus bitter, fairly English in character but lacking complexity, and with the bonus of a metallic finish. Medium light body.

Golden color with small white head. Aroma is some tropical fruits, not too much. Taste is fruity, a bit tart, a bit earthy, dry finish with a slight-to-medium bitterness. English IPA, kinda fits it. Zymurgeist2 (2296) - Redwood City, California, USA - JUL 12, 2014
On draught in Salinas. Uninspired nose of dough malt and caramel. Pours a clear copper with moderate off white head that lingered. Taste is syrup and caramel, with moderate earth. A little bit of wet paper. marcus (10337) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle from my friend Tina. Pours copper with a thick off-white head and a floral aroma. There is a medium-bodied sweet pale malt flavor with a nice bitter hoppy finish. Easy to drink.

Sampled on tap in Carmel. A nice olde style English ale. Big hoppy flavor. A nicely balanced ipa. Foxbush (2040) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Draft at the brewery The IPA pours a clear amber color with a foamy off-white head and lacing. There was citrus on the nose with mild malts. The ale had medium body with soft to average carbonation. There were flavors of caramel with bitter citrus. The finish fills your mouth with the warm bitterness of hops of a good IPA.

[US West Coast Trip 2013] riktigt dålig IPA. Ingen fruktighet, bara beska. Lätt och på gränsen till vattnig. Pizd (435) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2013
(Cask): Pours an amber gold with small off white head. Floral hop aroma, somewhat weak taste of citrus and caramel. Fairly average
