Draught at an airport restaurant. The beer is a good and reliable ipa: no surprises and all good. There’s sweetness in the taste in addition to the bitterness of the hops.

Bottle. Light amber white head. Nose is caramel/pine/citrus, nasal clearing. Flavour leans more toward the hops but still balanced by the caramel. Finish does have caramel but has a slight dry bite. Not sticky. Very solid version of an old school American IPA, deserves its rep as a classic. ABV is surprising, thought it was ~7%.

Bottle into a Leffe glass. Clear yellow-orange with a nice bubbly head, although it collapses fairly quickly. Zesty floral hops with a note of spice, it smells good. Crisp, fruity but dry with a certain malty biscuit too. Very good. For what is becoming a mainstream beer this manages to still be decent stuff.

Often the best beer available at bars, but nothing special. Pretty generic IPA.
