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.

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

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! Schöner 64oz-growler. 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! (30.9.2008) --> Noten: 12,11,12,12,12,12 - 11,85

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. ---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.
