Pours copper with off white head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Flavor is sweet citrus with a grapefruit, and pine finish. I think So Long and Thanks for All the Hops ruined all the other IPA’s for me on this day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at brewpub. Golden with little head. Pine aroma. Resiny pine flavor dominates from start to finish. Body is above medium but malt is overwhelmed by hop flavor. Bitterness is average. A bit too one sided for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a reddish orange with a quickly dissipating fluffy foam head. The aroma is of grapefruit citrus, pine, and a soapy or bubble gum like hop notes. I also picked up on a pleasant sweet malt character. As for tasting I noticed a mild to moderate bitterness level that tends to linger but was not overbearing. The bitterness was countered by a tasty grain bill of pale, crystal, and carmel malt flavors. There was also a more defined citrus flavor the more I savored my glass. Overall their Private IPA had a good finish, it was very drinkable, and this brew maintained good flavor. Honestly this is a model to what I expect a good IPA should taste like. It will not blow your mind but it gave me what I was craving for, a good india pale ale.
