This is what an IPA should taste like. Nice aroma, not overpowering. Lovely dry taste with a great IPA finish that isn’t so hoppy and dry that is sucks the moisture out of your mouth

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bomber into a pint glass. Best by date of 06/19/12. Probably not the freshest of IPA’s, but it is in the english style.
A - Nice and clear dark amber body. Soapy three finger high white head. Awesome lacing and retention.
S - Tons of sweet malts. Honey, biscuity crackers, and some piney and grassy hops. Extremely malt forward and inviting.
T - More of the malt heaviness. Starts off with some lightly bitter and spicy floral hops and ends on a sweet honey and biscuit note. Really delicious and highly drinkable.
M - Creamy and medium bodied. Carbonation is about spot on for me.
O - A great english style IPA. I’m glad to have BBC so close to me, I’ve had this super fresh from the brewery, a few weeks old on tap, and a few months old from the bottle. Its always a damn delicious beer.

Cask at Redbones: Poured a light amber color ale. Aroma of fresh floral hops is not as powerful as expected. Taste is dominated by medium bitter notes with some floral undertones with delicate dry caramel malt. Body is about average. Middle of the road IPA with no major flaws but lacking a bit of hops.

Hazy brown orange with small head. Aroma mild citrus hops, grains. Medium body. Not all that bitter. More malty than anything else. Off-dry. Hops are sort of there but not distinct. Odd aftertaste. Not really that great.

Draft @ tap take over, Tj’s, Portsmouth, nh. Served WAY to cold. Nose is nothing. Taste is bread malt and mild earthy hop, weak citrus near the finish. Juciey wet hop mouthfeel. Ok

On draft. Clear copper pour, finger thick head disappeared almost immediatly. What was left did leave some nice lacing. Good mouthfeel. Well balanced with a decent amount of bitterness. The hop flavor has a slight asprin flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a unfiltered cloudy golden amber out of a bomber. Thin, white, lacy lasting head. Very malty for an IPA, no overpowering bitter taste. Less hoppy than you’d expect.
