smells hoppy, as an IPA would. Fading floral compliments....
Pours yeast-free translucent amber-orange. Bit lighter than a scottish, but fairly close.
Slightly more floral on the nose, than tongue. Taste is straight hop’s, which fades quickly into tastes of fermentation :-/
Overall i’d have this as an avarage. If this was bottled at an inexpensive price, and was readily avalible, it could be an easy drinking, every day IPA. Not sure i’d go out and pay the craft beer price for this one again, though.

Pale yellow golden pour white thin head decent sticky lacing .... aroma is sweet and floral/citrusy hops litte funky and sweet malts .... taste is light biscuity malts, caramel malts with an even balance of floral and citrusy hops mild and a little sugary with a light bitter hop to it .... finishes dry with a lingering bitter finish ... decent and average its balanced well which is what they were shooting for simple and easy drinking Ernesto987 (6050) - Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2011
bottle, no idea how old this bottle is, smells just of straight malts, some molasses. No hop flavor or bittering, even on the finish. Maybe VERY slight. Less hop profile than most pale ales. If you told me this was a bitter I would like it more. Whoops. Sux to be u. hollardustin (330) - Indiana, USA - NOV 17, 2011
Pours light amber with small beaded white head. Aroma is grassy, earthy, fruity, hops, and some skunky notes. Taste is fruit, sweet malt, and slightly hoppy finish. The European hops definitely shine through more than the citrusy american hops that I prefer, but it’s ok. hivemind (934) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 5, 2011
12-oz bottle @ Nizza on 9th Ave with Erica (ate dinner at the bar). Pours dark yellow or light amber with a big white head. Clean-smelling and decently hoppy on the nose. A bit more malty on the palate but fresh and still a good trace of hoppiness. Moderately well balanced and drinkable, but not a very great taste. Kind of bland iPA. Appearance is best trait.

Bottle 33cl from mondial de la bière, a clear yellow beer with good head. Nose is very hopy, resin like and sweet like. Aroma is lemony and on grape fruit, some almond and nuts notes, body is medium sweet to high with caramel notes. Grassy notes are there too with peppery notes, correct ipa a bit too sweet, but drinkable, high bitterness feeling for 40IBU. Onslow (1554) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Pour from a 12oz bottle. Medium amber brew with small head. Aroma of caramel malt, brown sugar, floral hops. Taste is sweet caramel blending into a delicious hoppy finish. Rich and nutty. A fine English style IPA. bmerz (741) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Burnt orange with a lingering head. Noble hops aroma, mild cheese rind and peppery taste. Full mouth feel with lingering bitterness sherm1016 (1274) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 6, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a cloudy, amber color with a white head. Aroma is light, a little citrusy, pineapple maybe. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bread up front, with a clean, bitter, citrus hop finish. Definitely a balanced IPA. Beerowulf (136) - , Indiana, USA - AUG 20, 2011
malty/alcohol finish, but a nice sessionable IPA. Thinning head with a clear golden hue. I prefer their Double White ale to this, but another good brew from SPH
