Originally developed for British sailors stationed in India, IPAs were aggressively hopped to help prevent spoilage on long ocean voyages. Now that spoilage isn’t as big a problem, we’ve eased up on the hoppiness just a hair to let the caramel malts shine through. It’s a big beer with big flavor that really lets you appreciate hops in all their glory.

Some grapefruit, pine, and malt. Decent balance, but not really strong enough for the style.

A castrated IPA! Little aroma.. Boringly clear amber color and modest head. Very modest hop contribution!

12 oz. Clear golden amber with a small ring of bubbles. Aroma is light resin, caramel and a hint of citrus.Taste is metallic citrus, resin and caramel. Light medium body is mostly smooth with the carbonation, and balanced. OK drinker if no craft beer is available, but pretty piss-poor as an IPA.

mundane as it gets. Sweet malt, insipid malt flavor, no hops. No character. Cashing in.

Scipio (831) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Pours a darker golden with a thinner white head. Aroma is pleasant and not overpowering. It consists of pine, caramel, resin, and some lighter citrus notes of grapefruit. Taste is rather muted for an IPA. The flavors are pine and caramel, with some fruity impressions that seems to more lemon than anything else. Dry hoppy aftertaste. Medium bodied with some decent carbonation. Bitter throughout, especially at the end. This one is ok, but overall is just plain boring.

New to NH, this seems to be an old school brand, but I’ve not heard of it before, points off for screw top bottles. Pours a medium copper color with a decent white head that slowly fades to a cap on top. the aroma is a bit earthy and piney with a mineral like aroma and hints of bread and caramel. The flavor is sweet and malty with lots of bread and caramel. The hops poke through and hit us with lots of onion and garlic. Sweet lingering sugary finish. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet slick mouthfeel. This is not bad its certainly easy enough to drink, but its certainly nothing exciting either.

scooterbub (1027) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - SEP 5, 2012
12 ounce bottle. Pours a golden amber color with a decent one inch beige head. Taste is of hops, pine, resin, caramel, some malt and some wood. Nice hoppy and caramel aroma. Has a decent body with a slight bitterness and dryness in the finish. Very easy to drink and rather enjoyable. I really like this beer and it is offered at a great price too ($6.50 a six pack).

Not really sure I understand what we’re going for here. Too timid to appeal to IPA drinker, but y’know, not exactly a bud lite, either. Some citrusy hops, but mostly bland and watery.
