Pours clear light golden color with a thin lace of off-white head. Aroma is faint but noticeably sweet and slightly tart. Flavor starts sweet with some prune notes and gradually becomes more tart across the palate but not overwhelmingly so. I actually really like this one, good balance without to much sweet fruity overkill.

Theydon_Bois (15535) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Bottle split at RBWG í15 hotel lobby share on the final night, from a bottle shop in Asheville, 21/02/15. Golden with a decent light beige cap. Nose is pale malt, caramel, straw, orange. Taste comprises toasted bread, caramel, orange pith, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light hop bitterness. A rather pedestrian IPA which delivers little.

Malty. Maybe Iíve gotten blasted with hops so many times by other IPAs that itís hard to enjoy the maltier ones. Aroma is nothing to emulate. Very faint hop aroma but itís mostly dominated by the brand flaky malt bill. Deschutes inversion IPA (although with more hops) has a similar type of aroma--think, total cereal. Taste is brand flakes, vitamins, oats, wheat thins mixed with a hint of honey and earthy hops. Finish is not that bitter. Itís more of that lingering malt feel you find in wheat beers. Overall, itís pretty much par for the course in terms of English IPAs--more malt, low hops. "Ease up on the hops ole chap. We just want to keep it from spoiling not use up the lot."

Foxbush (1700) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Draft from Growlers to Go in Richmond The IPA poured a clear amber with smallish head that dissipated with lacing. A pleasant IPA with mild hints of citrus and caramel malts on the nose and some resin in the taste. The IPA has a medium body with average carbonation. The ale had a refreshingly crisp finish that doesnít overwhelm the taste buds.

BOD 5/22/14. Pours a slightly cloudy medium amber. Exceptional head volume and retention, World Class lacing. Nice nose of subtle herbal hops, with a touch of spice, over a biscuit and caramel background. Light medium body that has a fairly smooth texture. Above normal carbonation with a slight effervescence in the middle and a nice burst in the finish. The flavor profile falls just short of outstanding. It is intense, but falls short in balance and complexity. It has a nice hop flavor focus (herbal, citric and rind) over a mild bitterness in the middle. Caramel and biscuit sweetness appear in the finish, but are overwhelmed by rind and pine hop flavor. This hop flavor lingers.
