3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from Pacific Liquor. Nice English IPA, pours light amber/honey with a slight, white, soapy head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, grass, bread, slight pine, herbs. Earthy hops, not too bitter, could be a session IPA. Low carbonation, medium body, oily texture, balanced finish. An accurate version of the style, would repeat.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is hoppy, piney, but not too fruity. Actually something unpleasant in there. Taste is similar, weird mixture between malts and hops, and something very off. Boozy finish and a bit metallic. Disappointing.

Tap (Hopfenreich, Berlin). Piwo o ciemno-zlocistej barwie, szarej pianie, niezbyt obfitej i nietrwalej. Aromat srednio intensywny, lekko slodkawy z nuta owocow tropikalnych. W smaku slodowe z konkretnym cialem, z nutami s?odkich owocow tropikalnych i nuta alkoholu przebijajaca sie z drugiego planu. Goryczka srednia, ziolowa, niczym nie zachwyca z reszta jak cale piwo.

7/7/2010 2:20:58 AM Bottle at Beer Temple. A nice amber body with almost no head. Sweet and spicy nose. Some hops too. The taste is pure hops and pine notes. Lots and lots of hops. Also a bit spicy with caramel. Very good for Left Hand I say.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into an English pint glass.
The appearance was a moderately hazy burnt orange color. Lighter colored hues of almost transparent burnt yellow grace along the sides if the glass. The head was about a finger’s worth of white foaminess. After dissipation, moderate sticky lacing eventually slides into the beer.
The smell starts off with a sweet biscuity to breadiness rolling into a sly little bit of a grassy spicy hops. Gets slightly earthy as well. Soapiness of a normal English IPA is there yet tame.
The taste was moderately sweet. Low rolling earthy to semi-spicy hops slide into the aftertaste and into the finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable sweet to spicy feel slyly rolling over a nice low key carbonation.
Overall, for an English IPA, its extremely well done. Hats off to Left Hand for pulling this one off. Pass the fish n’chips!

I agree with what they’re saying. Too many IPA’s are nothing but hop water. I like hoppy, extremely bitter beer. But there also has to have some hint of malt, barley, and maybe other flavors involved. This is a finger in the eye of the brewers that are just putting out hop water and puffing their chest out. It’s good and it’s making a statement!!!! On tap @ 3 Cellars Franklin, Wisconsin.

Bottle. Pale transparent orange; light lacing. Muddy caramel malt, fruity, nutty. Dry finish. Light to medium bitterness. Alright, but that’s it.

Aroma is a little weak. The taste makes up for it, balancing bitterness with just a little bit of sweet. Enjoyable offering from left hand, if not all that memorable in the vast sea of good IPA's that are out there.

Pours clear golden with a thin off white head. Bread aroma. Initial crisp fruit hop taste that immediately switched to a grassy dry earthy dry mouth feel. Pronounced switch.
