Decent IPA, but missing the strong hoppy bitterness I like. Very smooth, drinkable and enjoyable though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a very impressive IPA. Pale golden. Minimal hoppiness, instead there is a slightly unpleasant bitterness on the finish, maybe a hint of lemon peel. Overall the taste is thin and watery with the primary theme being pine rosin and alcohol. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice malty citrus hop aroma. Not bitter or floral. Amber clear color. Not overly complex in taste but a very easy drinking and balanced beer. A slight hop note at first with a big malt finish. Light and malty on the palate.
An easy drinking beer. Good for a beginner with the IPA style.

This beer is a happy middle that doesn’t make my middle very happy. I get upset stomach but it is still tasty.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 Harpoon IPA seems to be one of those beers that’s either pretty overrated or harshly under-appreciated - no happy medium. In my mind, it is, in fact, right in the middle. It’s a good IPA with a very nice balance. It could, however, benefit from more hop flavor. I’d like to see a bigger and more diverse hop profile. As is, that note is singular and a bit understated. Still, this is a good IPA if not the strongest, most balanced, or most unique.

Medium gold color, 3/4 inch head lasted halfway thru, good lacing. Moderately hopped and left a long thin hop taste. Initially seemed hoppier, but that may have been due to a slight lack of malt. Refreshing, though

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Not that fan of the floral aroma. Looks very nice. Not that much taste. No aftertaste.
Edit: had this again. More pleasant than previously described.

Bottle to glass at room temp. Slight citrus smell and slight hoppy taste, but overall quite a bland beer.
