twitcher (298) - framingham, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 8, 2009
bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden copper color, half inch of tight, foamy light tan head that sticks around well and leaves plenty of lace. Nose shows hefty chunk of sticky caramel, with some light spicy and resinous hop notes in the background. Aroma suggests way too much malt body and sweetness for an IPA. Flavor improves... a bit. Light spicy bitterness to start, some eathy resinous notes. Mellow malt sweetness, much more tamed than the nose suggested. Flavor is decent, with some good balance, but doesn’t stand out as an IPA. Palate is decent, a bit on the sticky/oily side, medium carbonation, some lasting sweetness on the finish. Overall not bad, but certainly not a standout. Passable IPA.

SG111 (1295) - New York, USA - MAY 2, 2015
On tap at Sputino’s, Long Island. Pours orange golden color, small white head. Aroma is citrus, resinous pine, biscuit malt, orange and grapefruit. Flavor is hop forward. Lots of pine, resin, mild citrus. Mild malt. Bittering hops dominate. Not bad. Solid. Feels more West coast ipa to me.

JaKeAFC (970) - ITALY - DEC 3, 2014
Lake Placid IPA (US) - IPA - 6.8%

35 cl bottle, best before 12.2014, 2.70€. Pour light browhish with small fine creamy head, plenty of lacing. Nose is hoppy and earthy. Aroma caramel malts, hints of roasted malts, candy orange peel, ginger, rum, brandy. Nice liquor finish with a leftover of burnt wood and earth. I think this bottle is too old... Body is quite thin, but the taste is strong, intensely bitter yet not excessive, good amount of bittering hops. Low carbonation but tingly on tongue, long finish and very dry. It’s more prone on the Pils\APA side than the typical IPA but it’s quite good.

Ipa molto estrema ma molto buona :) sentori erbacei con note fruttate al naso mentre al gusto un amaro prorompente domina tutto, molto persistente. ---Rated BY Italianbeer85

I had this beer at the pub. The color is a clear ruby with a thin beige head. The aroma is of hops and herbs and a bit of citrus fruits.The taste also of hops plus some malt and herbs teh bitterness to me is not strong enough but still a good I.P.A..

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 This definitely should be defined a pale ale not an ipa. No aroma malty flavor. Decent beer horrible ipa. Decent head. Good mouthfeel. Good beer. Just not an ipa. An average to above average pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
