2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer is the definition of a typical obligatory IPA. Aroma was average. Light hoppiness, with citrus and notes of pine. Pour was a light orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was pretty boring. The grainy sweet malt backbone is balanced by lemon, grass and grapefruit hops. Neither flavor is very strong or full. The beer would be a good introduction to IPAs for a BMC drinker. Medium carbonation round the beer out. Slightly sweet finish.

Decent IPA, on the light side. Pretty dry, grassy taste. Amber pour and a fast dropping, fluffy head.

Decent. Not bad. Good enough to be in the store, I guess. Standard east coast ipa. Run of the mill. I’d buy it again in the pick-6 shelf.

I had it on tap. It pours golden with a white head and some lacing. The aroma was slight hops. There was something off about the aroma. The taste was hops, earth, and lemon. This was a decent but forgettable IPA.

Pour is a clear amber with a light white head which lingers and laces.....aroma of lemon and grass......taste is malt sweetness, touch of lemon then tails off into slight bittering with a remnant of earth at the end.

Malt and molasses for days....too much. It starts out with heavy malt notes, gives the hops very little time to shine and then goes straight back to the overwhelming malts. Disappointed.

On tap at Tir Na Nog. Malty English IPA, sweet malts first, hops in the back seat. Leads into a dry, chalky finish. A darker shade of gold also hints at the bigger malt profile. Pretty true to style, but not the norm when using the letters IPA

12oz bottle, not sure how it looked because I sucked it right down from the bottle. Nose has lemon, pine, grass, a little honey, some light cardboard. Flavor has honey comb, pine and soap. Slick finish. So so.

From tap. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is fruity and slight pine hoppy. Bitter, fruity and crisp hoppy. Crisp hoppy finish.

BBD 12/27/15. Pours a clear medium amber. Normal head volume, outstanding lacing and retention.
Very light nose of biscuit, caramel and slightly spicy hops. I’m surprised the aroma is so light.
Light body that has a smooth texture. Perfect carbonation with an effervescent middle that never really ends. It just rolls into a nice prickly finish.
Good flavor profile that lacks a bit of intensity for the style but is quite tasty. Very well balanced with enough complexity. It begins with malt (caramel and biscuit) that is noticeable but not sweet per se. The middle is slightly bitter. As the finish approaches mild hop flavor arrives - pine and rind. The finish is a touch grainy and the hop flavors slowly fade.
