      Appearance (3)
      Amber, hazy. High carbonation. Thick head.
      Aroma (3)
      Nice fruity, grassy hops.
      Mouthfeel (9)
      Medium-big body, fizzy. Lots of smooth caramel malt and lots of earthy, grassy hop flavor. Reasonably bitter. Some floral notes. Not as bitter as an American IPA, but really well-balanced and tasty.
      Overall Impression (3)
      Probably the best English IPA I've tasted.

      Appearance (3)
      Deep red. Moderate dense head.
      Aroma (3)
      Lots of milk chocolate. Hint of brown roastiness.
      Mouthfeel (8)
      Medium body, fizzy, but smooth. Very malty and very chocolatey, and just a bit warming. Mild grassy hop bitterness in the finish, along with lots of chocolate. Pretty sweet.
