COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A medium bodied India Pale Ale, dry hopped to provide a very pleasing flora, citrus aroma. Well balanced between malty sweetness and hop bitterness. A very thirst quenching IPA.

Wickenden Pub. Ehh. It tastes like a flagship beer that is brewed for tourists.

22 oz bottle. Pours like a classic Pale Ale, with moderate head and good retention. A little too malty for my taste, perhaps more in the English than the American Pale Ale tradition. If I'm ever lost at sea, I'll be sure have some with me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours clear golden with a healthy white head. Aroma is bread, malt, hint of hops. Taste is a bit tangy with a lot of breadiness, little bitterness, a bit of citrus and fair mouthfeel.....more like a California ale than IPA.....not quite what one would expect with IPA on the label.

BBC’s IPA probably closer to a hopped up golden ale for most other brewers, that being said this is one of my favs. Pours clear gold from a 22 oz. bomber, supriseingly dry with good amount of hops, medium body with nice malt. FYI if buying growlers, make sure your store has sufficient turnover as these do become cloudy with time

Poured from a large bottle into a short glass to drink. The beer had a hazy, cloudy dull amber-orange color with an average-sized foamy off-white head that had good retention, but modest cling and lacing. Its aroma had citrus and floral notes, with some pain, and milder tones of caramel malt and candy. The taste was mostly bitter with a grainy-citrus blend, and had a slight sour barley effect too. It was a slightly wet and watery beer with an average mouthfeel, and average carbonation and fizz. Not one of the better BBC beers.

Bottle shared by John. Part of 5K backlog. Pours clear gold with off white head. Nose of caramel malt, pineapple, peach, orange zest and herbal resin. Taste is mostly bready malt and caramel with a dryish resin finish. A bit bland. Okay. Lighter than medium bodied.

A good light IPA. BBC seems to have a light hand with the hops in general; most of their beers are on the malty side. This one is an IPA tho, and it is fully hopped. A "British-inspired" IPA, the label says, with "generous dry-hopping" with Goldings. Floral aroma with some caramel and bread. The taste is like an English IPA, pretty mellow overall, and a good accompaniment to my tofurkey sandwich.

Un verre au Parker Pie. Une bière orangée et sa tête mousseuse qui laisse une dentelle qui n’est pas piquée des vers. Un nez simple mais tout de même efficace de malts caramélisés et d’agrumes. Quelques vapeurs de pêches peuvent être senties ici et là. Des papilles qui relèvent quelques fleurs et quelques flaveurs fruitées. Des céréales maltées qui arrivent ici comme un chien dans un jeu de quilles. Dommage que les éléments houblonnés tombent les uns sur les autres. En bouche, rien de négatif. Le corps, les bulles et la texture marchent main dans la main pour offrir une sensation modestement agréable. La finale est légèrement amère, peu intense et presque incertaine sur les parfums qu’elle tente d’avancer. Tout compte fait, une IPA correcte mais ordinaire.

Bottle. Average-looking pour, orange-amber. The aroma is a bit fruity, a bit bakery. The drink is a little schizophrenic. There’s some acidity here, but the narrow band of bready malt doesn’t balance very well with it. This grows me as I go, though ... Maybe as more of it sticks to my mouth, it mellows overall.

Sampled in a bomber on Martha’s Vineyard. A nice summer beer. Not over powering but refreshing.
