Practice beer courtesy of nimbleprop, our generous host, thank you sir. Straightforward IPA, tasty enough, hoppy enough, without being overbearing. No complaints.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 12oz, at Haand Festival -14. It pours an almost clear body, golden in color and with a small, white head. The aroma is piney and citrus peel-ish, with some malts kicking in. Bitter flavor with piney, citrusy hops on a backdrop of pale malts. Full-bodied, soft and nicely carbonated, with bitter, citrusy finish. I prefer the even more hop forward west coast IPA’s, but this is a really fine one anyway. 140523

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Utobeer. Gold with lasting white head. American hop aroma, a little woody, some grapefruit. Fairly toned down US IPA. Malts are a bit wonky. It’s fine, but as I say needs a bit more backbone. Hops are pretty generic.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale hazy yellow, small white head. Bready, parfumic hoppy nose. Basic bready, American hoppy flavour. Standard American IPA with slight honey sweetness. Nothing wrong in this brew, but not very interesting.

A rock-solid IPA here. Sampled it at a tasting while in college. Nice golden color with a medium head. Strong hops odor and flavor. A wonderful session beer.

Impressively hoppy IPA - West Coast flavour from Mass. Good curranty notes. Had it with chili when I was in NYC. It was a brilliant combination, repeated frequently since.
