3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 19, 2013 Smells piney out of the bottle, but is purely orange and grapefruit citrus once it hits the glass. Somewhat smallish head with average lacing. Copper-orange appearance. Taste also is largely citrus with a solid caramel malt backing. Finishing flavor is a little weak, but that is its only drawback - the malts hit nicely in the aftertaste, and then the hops kick in afterward and linger for awhile. Very refreshing IPA. I don’t understand all the low ratings - this is a tasty IPA per my palate. APRIL RERATE: Had this again recently, and it was a sweet sticky malty mess. Not nearly as citrusy and tasty as the first time. Downrating. Perhaps I just got lucky the first time.

Very British, with Fuggle hops. Limited aroma, light body and average head. Clear amber color. AB can brew a decent ale if they wish!

Bottle at home in Salisbury. Pours clear copper-orange with a fine, foamy white head. Nose holds caramel, some berries, bread. Medium sweetflavor with sugary bread, mild leafy bitterness, further caramel, ripe berries. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with lightly toasted bread and caramel, some dirty leaves, ripe berries and other fruits. Lightly astringent but not terrible overall.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from wegmans. Pours clear amber with a small off white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has light floral notes, light pine, some citrus. The taste is lightly citrus and lacks the punch of a real ipa style.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Kind of a rich orange pour with a small foamy white head - not bad looking. Lots of caramel with some cardboard in the aroma - ugg. Nose is hoppier than the taste. Note a great brew here.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bass IPA has a medium, off-white head, a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, and a little lacing left behind. The aroma is of caramel, toffee, brown bread crust, subdued hops, and sweetness. Taste is of those elements, with hop bitterness that tastes like hops, rather than grape fruit or pine oil. Mouthfeel is medium and slightly slick, and Bass IPA finishes semi-dry, refreshing, easy going, and delicious. They nailed it! RJT

Drank from bottle,
I had this the other night to get it off the shelf because it just wont sell, very week for an IPA. The taste of caramel threw me off. It wasn’t hoppy enough to be a true IPA. Very, very meh.

Nice malt aroma. Not as hoppy as american india pale ales. Malt balances nicely with the mild hops.
