Aroma: The nose of this one has citrus hops, lemon, some toast/bread, and a little toffee
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a frothy white headn and mid-heavy lace
Flavor: Tastes light-medium sweet, with orange and lemon along with toast/bread, it finishes lightly bitter
Palate: The body is light (leaning medium), with an average-to-lively carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
This is a pretty tasty beer. I feel like they hit nicely on what they were trying to make here, which is a true to style British IPA. Even though it isn’t super hoppy, the hops shine through enough to provide a nice balance to the citrus and bread flavors that are the more dominant aspect of the beer. It is quite drinkable as well.
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a 2 finger white head that left some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and light citrus. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a light citrusy and earthy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leaving a slight tickle on the tongue. A decent IPA that is worth trying once, but nothing really memorable about this one. jgb9348 (6482) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Slightly copper coloured body with a golden glow and a thickish, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of earthy, nutty hops with a bit of caramel and toffee noticeable with a tiny bit of malt. Medium to Full-bodied; Chewy toffee and malty flavour with a good earthy hop bitterness and very low alpha acid hops showing some earthy and nutty tastes. Aftertaste is caramelised sugars, some nuts and a bit of malt - definitely more of an EPA than anything even close to an American IPA. Overall, a decent beer, but not great, and especially not for the style - there aren’t many hops here at all, but in an EPA category, this would be run of the mill to perhaps a tad better. I sampled this 12 ounce bottle purchased from Wegman’s in Malvern, Pennsylvania on 22-September-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 05-October-2012. beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2012
On draught several times. Pours a clear amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of orange, but not heavily so. Most definitely not a west coast IPA, but more in the traditional style. The flavor is a solid combination of malt and orange. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Nice solid ale. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Bottle:   Amberish, a bit fiery, clear, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Somewhat of a soft biscuity nose, hops are a bit weak, tea like perhaps.   Not a sharp or strong IPA from the smell of it.   Soft bitterness up front, a touch of earth, a touch of tea leaves.   Not very bright, yet not dull.   Seems more of a Pale Ale to me, but then again I live in the land of Hops.   Towards the back there is a little bit of citrus coming through, which is nice.   Seems to have more going on with the tongue than on the nose.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes clean, soft hops linger... very soft.   Nice citrus based malt sweetness also presides.   Decent IPA, but could stand to be a bit sharper and more vibrant on the nose.

From bottle to tulip. Citrus piney aroma. Balance sweet and dry bitter finish. Not bad, light and refreshing. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - SEP 21, 2012
12-oz. Thanks j! Pours a crystal clear medium amber. Loose white sudsy head. Big bright orange marmalade floral nose. Chalky fizzy medium body. Perfect marmalade on toast mid palate. Mild finish on a chalky feel. Good beer. Chapel (468) - Levittown, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2012
A fairly mild IPA. Not as much bitterness as I usually expect from the style. Maybe I’m just spoiled now? hivemind (922) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle, thx Andy. Pours deep caramel, chunky white head. Nose is light hop and a little wood/sawdust, powerful earthy grittiness on the tongue, notes of citrus in there but "grainy" is my theme. bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle from Breukelen Bier Merchants. Clear orange with an orange tinged fleeting head. Aroma of hops (earthy, light pine, light tropical fruits), light sulfer and minerals, a sweet malt. Flavor is of hops, earth, minerals, subtle dactyl (good), starts sweet and ends dry a moderately bitter. Very light and clean on the palate. This seems to be a pretty true to style English pale ale. It’s quite enjoyable and nice for a change.
