Pours an honey amber color with burnished orange highlites. Held up to bright light light shows off its clarity and brilliancy. A tall off white head lingers for quite a while leaving nice lacing around the glass. Its exceptionally well carbonated. Aroma is of an abundance of sweet malts, but the sutle hops are the big draw here with plenty of hop aromas of grapefruit and floral. The hops are bright and fresh. A great tasting beer here with plenty of hop flavor and light on the hop bitterness. You can pick out grapefruit and fruity/floral notes plus faint spicy hops. Malts are light with a hint of toasted malts. Finishing up, is a soft warming alcohol presence. This medium body ale is a great example of an IPA. Bright and flavorful easy drinking without being overly bitter. Definitly well worth the effort of finding.

On draught at some NYC pub that we stopped in because we had to pee.

Pours a deep golden color with a small well retained head.

The aroma is resiny and has some nice melon and orange rind fruitiness.

The flavor is lots of fresh hops, a little grapey, a little grape-fruity, a good bit of citrus and melon. Just a ton of those fruit forward hops. The beer is pretty high in bitterness which is always nice alongside those fruity hops.

Delicious

Incredibly well-balanced IPA. Cudos to Zio Aldo for getting this one in my hands. Lovely orange to amber hue with a nice head. Pine, resin, grapefruit all there. Bitter and lingering finish. Awesome.

Bottle.
Pours a deep, rich cheddar orange with a nose of malty but fruity grapefruit, orange peel, and a touch of pine. Very bitter English-esque quality to the melding of ingredients, with hints of grapefruit, orange, biscuit, and a little grassy pine in the finish. Decent mouthfeel. Seems to be a worthy tribute to a classic English IPA.
