From cask. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is peachy and greasy grapefruity. Bitter, crisp hoppy and light toasted malty. Mango and passion fruity, medium dry and malt is clearly there to balance the hops. Bitter and toasted malty finish.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2014 Poured as a 2 oz sampler at Virginia Beer Live 2013. Citrus (grapefruit) smell and taste. 2nd try at Blacksburg Taphouse. Very hoppy with more pine resin than last time. Malt backbone in there, but otherwise not too complex. Lasting finish.

AZBennett (114) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Pours a nice amber with huge white fluffy head that has massive retention. Aromas are very faint and mostly light apricot/peach and some caramel. The flavor is the nicest part of this beer featuring strong caramel, soap, honey and bitterness that I can only describe as Fuggle-y. Palate is nice, not too heavy but with a denseness that fits this beer. Overall, the style is more reminiscent of a hoppy ESB than a straight up English IPA; this is much more in line with a hoppy pub ale and as such it tastes quite nice, but this cant compare to a really good English IPA.

Butters (4049) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Clear amber pour with ample offwhite head. Defenitely a little old. Smells and tastes of old faded english hops (not noble). Has a lingering bitterness after the caramel malt sweetness fades. A little fusel alcohol burn/spiciness which could be coming from the hops i suppose. A decent english ipa, but nothing amazing.
