3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Actually liked this better by bottle than on tap. Unusual as it is I was comparing it with the Rotator Series Falconer IPA today and it paled in comparison and that is the best way to say it.
Appearance: 4.5 out of 5.00 Beautiful unfiltered appearance. Orange / Copper color... Golden hue.
Smell: Aroma of light citrus..
Taste: Not as hoppy as I would have expected. Very low bitterness for an IPA. Malty and frothy on the front with limited IPA taste more of a golden ale. Not hoppy. No alcohol bite. Maybe the English in English IPA comes from the breadiness of this ale.
Mouthfeel: Suprisingly dry. Does not have peppery or hoppy mouthfeel more of a sweetness which almost tastes skunked...
Overall: No major flaws but not the best of BBC. Its adequate and I would rate it well as Berkshire has not done me wrong in the past but this is not their finest product..

Malty and medium-bodied. Hops tasted like sharp cheddar, blue cheese, mint, and boiled denim. Pours a dark orange and blah, blah, blah. Single can. This IPA kinda sucks. I’ve had too many of these before. Pass.

Can. Grassy aroma with some hint of malt. Taste is malty. Not real bitter. Not the best ipa. Ok at best.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz can. Pours cloudy orange that never clears. No aroma at all for something claiming "dry-hopped". Thin head that disappears quickly. On the front it starts with some promise and then never goes anywhere with no flavor on the finish, nothing lingering. There is some body and sweetness on the tongue but that’s about it. It looks like the sailor not only lost his way but all his hops too. Overall a big disappointment and rather boring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a hazy copper orange body that leaves a one finger foamy white head that lasts for a good minute before gently dieing into the body. The body is too hazy for any carbonation to be seen rising. Some mild spotty foamy lacing coats the pint glass.
The smell has some light citrus, hops and malts combined very nicely.
The taste is mostly the same adding a nice extra lingering sweetness.
On the palate, she sits about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue. I would say this is a fairly sessionable beer.
Overall, this is a pretty good English IPA, good for the style and good for me.

Hazy gold and only slightly hoppy. Pretty dry finish, and only a touch of honied sweetness.

Vielen Dank an Micha für der Import des Bieres!
Ein unfiltriertes, unpasteurisiertes Bier.
Die Farbe ist leicht orange-trüb mit schönem leicht beigen Schaum.
Der Geruch ist schön fruchtig, der Antrunk genau wie der Geruch - schöne gelbe Fruchtaromen, leichte Hefetöne, die sich im Hauptteil noch verstärken. Leichte Orangenoten. Das Bier ist toll fruchtig und leicht säuerlich. Zum Nachgeschmack kommt die typische Ale-Herbe hinzu, die sich auch im Hintergrund bis in den letzten Teil des mittellangen Nachgeschmacks hinein hält. Sehr süffig und sehr angenehm zu trinken.
--> Ein tolles, fruchtiges Bier. Angenehm herb-süß. Lecker!

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Light sweet malts, flowery and earthy hops, and very faint buttery hops. Not good, but not awful either.

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.

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.
