Cakes (411) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Kind of a weak offering. Not a "kick butt" IPA, more of a "Me too" offering. Was expecting much more here from Harpoon.

TheJester (2504) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2016
On tap at Dodd Stadium in Connecticut. Nice to find an IPA at a minor league ball game, even if it is a rather mediocre one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

LazyPyro (525) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
355ml bottle. Clear golden orange with a one-two finger white head, good lacing and retention. Aroma of floral citrus hops, pale malt. Taste of citrus floral hops, sweetish malts, hardly any bitterness for an IPA. Flavours are more malty than hoppy. Medium body, medium carbonation. It’s alright but not noteworthy.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2016 Clear gold, spritzy white head, yields to wispy. Aroma of hops, berries, orange and some soapiness. Taste comes around, decently balanced, some sweet breadiness in the finish. Saved itself after the soapy aroma thing
