Great Waters website. Built on a combination of English malt and American hops, the moniker fits well.
Lighter than in the picture, this IPA is a light copper ale with golden edges. Stark white fluffy head that lingers a bit on the second pint, and fell with a very nice lace. Strong malty nose with caramel and toffee notes, and a slight citrus hidden behind potent earthiness. English character of the nose continues in the taste, but the hop bite is more northwest hop. Acrid bitterness lingers pleasantly with a full mouthfeel in spite of the light appearance.
A very nice beer, and, in a recurring theme, drink it slowly to let it warm a little so the balance improves and the hops open up. On the website, it mentions a limited quanity of a oak aged cask version that sounds very interesting.
