Bottle. Thanks ModeEngage! Hazy gold with a think off-white head that lasts and laces. Aromas of caramel, some earthy and spicy notes, and light grapefruit. Flavor is caramel, spice, light pine, grapefruit and biscuit. Medium bodied, smooth with a slightly dry and bitter end. joejames (510) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours almost clear golden, two inch quick, frothy head, minimal lacing and retention. Aroma of caramel and spicy herbs. Taste is medium bitter, slightly sweet, a touch of salt. Medium bodied, average carbonation, slightly metallic mouth feel. Finishes moderately bitter with tasting notes of almond, bitter herbs, caramel and bread. Very good example of the style. BeerdedDave (1853) - Beckley, USA - JAN 3, 2015
fruity, floral hop aroma with caramel notes; bitter, floral hops on a medium bodied caramel malt base with light fruit notes; a good, well balanced English style IPA SamP01 (668) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2014
A nice amber with a small white head on the pour. Aroma is fruity with caramel malt notes. Taste is fruity, caramel malt, some toasted grains followed by some herbal hops bitterness. Palate is medium body with good carbonation, light crisp mouth feel. Finishes with a nice caramel malt flavor, fruity, some grains and mild citrus herbal hops for balance. It a good British style IPA for drinking. ganache (6029) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Bottle. Nose is lightly piney and strongly doughy, getting great hop character and some spice there, pours a gradient amber-golden with lots of medium carbonation and a soapy beige head. Taste is medially bitter, moderately dry, and sharply adjusted -- really pick out the mineral additions to the water. Bitterness is crisp and snappy, though, and we’re clean throughout. Malt is lightly roasty on the level of Munich or a very dark Vienna, and getting some good minor caramel to complement the dough. Fullish body, perhaps a shade below, and really quite drinkable for fizzy-strong hop assault. Nice.

No date on bottle. Pours an amber honey color with a medium long lasting head. The thicker halo lacing never fully fades. Clear beer, appears completely filtered. The beer seems to be a an English IPA, the hops are not assertive, faintly fruity and lightly bitter. The rest is present and very British with fruity yeast tones, dusty malts, and a slightly sweet tea character. A sweetness and fruitiness ends the beer, not sugary but a definitely nice fruity yeast and sweet malt end. Its a nice change of pace for "IPA" and I enjoyed it. However, its probably not something I will return to.
pours clear bright golden with a nice off-white head offering some retention and some lacing too. caramel, toffee - sweetish malted base - brown sugar, bitter herbs, along some lightly earthy and peppery notes, hint of coconut and other woodsy/musty notes, minerals, clean english yeastiness perhaps. low carbonation, light body - oily, creamy and smooth, balanced citrusy-grassy-gently earthy finish. interesting minerality and englishy angles.

This beer is mellow and smooth. Has a distinctly different finish from many other IPAs. A bit sweeter and kind of creamy. Foxbush (2086) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 25, 2014
12 oz Bottle from Total Wine and More The IPA poured a clear amber with foamy white head and lacing. This is nice looking ale. This is mild tasting IPA. Not much on the nose and just no bitterness of a well hopped ale. It is easy to drink. The IPA has a medium body with average carbonation. Some toffee or malts come out at the finish but still rather tame.
