This English-style I.P.A. features a deep golden color, plenty of hop bitterness balanced by malt sweetness. Dry hopping results in a floral and herbal hop finish. HopFish is then lightly filtered to maintain the appropriate body and flavor. The beer features a combination of European malts to balance the hops, making this quite drinkable and quite versatile in pairing with food.

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. 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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Not sure why I never rated this. Had multiple bottles of this when studying at UPenn, 2009. One of my first American IPAs. It pours a clean rich golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is resinous and lightly malty with notes of pine cones caramel and resin. Taste is medium sweet with a nice malty backbone and a clean bitter resinous hop presence. It’s a classic West Coast style IPA with good malts and resinous hops. Would not love it today probably, but did enjoy it back then.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
