India Pale Ale

12 oz single, from PittBeerGirl as part of my secret bunny 2010.
Nice, authentic orange body with a good head initially but it fades pretty quickly. Not much lace either.
Light hops in the nose that are replicated with more force in the tastes. Quite sweet, so lots of malts must back up the hop profile. The alcohol is very well hidden and would not have guessed this was 7.00%. The finish also has some residual sugar. The malt base, the relatively low alcohol taste and the sweetness, certainly add up to this beer being on the English end of the spectrum.
Mid level carbonation is appropriate.
A little soap taste buils in the finish along with some acidity and a little grapefruit.
