As far as I can tell this is relatively new to the US. The St. Peter’s “flask” bottle remains a classic. Green’s, Ponce de Leon, Atlanta, GA, USA.
I suspect that this beer is going to be horribly misuderstood in the USA. People without the knowledge or experience of an ENGLISH IPA will think that this is just too light and not hoppy enough. The mistake that they will be making is that the English (original) version of the IPA is always going to be more balanced and understated, without feeling the need to shove the hops down your throat.
Orange pour with some scant lacing and a disappointing lack of head. Not the best looking beer I’ve ever seen. Simple malt and hop balance in the nose and the taste. Biscuit flavors in the background. Mild citrus peel and zest make up the bitterness, and as expected not a huge hop profile.
Too me this is amazingly drinkable, beautfully balanced, tasty and sessionable. I bet many will get it wrong and slam this beer for being something that it is not supposed to be.
