3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
To me, English IPAs focus a bit more on balance of malt and hops and aren’t simply out to destroy your palate. Spicy hops lead the way but there’s a distinct wheat breadiness. Also some of the hard water flavor found in a lot of English ales. Very unique mixture of hops including Magnum, Boadicea and Sovereign.
More punch than a Pale Ale, not as much as most IPAs. Respectable 6.8% ABV that adds just a touch of warmth.
It’s definitely good, but maybe a step below their porters, stouts, and the Good Juju.

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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden orange with a white head. Head retention is good. AROMA: Malt, pineapple, citrus, floral hops, spice, slight spruce, very light caramel and a slight funk. TASTE: pine bitterness, hope bitterness, caramel, citrus, spice, tropical fruit and pineapple. AFTER TASTE: pine bitterness, caramel light citrus and spice with an oily finish. Definitely expected more from this brew however it’s still a great brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
BBD 5/13/15. Pours a clear golden with a touch of amber. Normal head characteristics.
Nice, but a bit light, nose of herbal hops with a bit of peppery spice over biscuit.
Light medium body with a smooth texture. Slightly above normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a solid finish.
The flavor profile is unique, intense, a bit complex but not well balanced. It begins with an odd flavor - herbal hops, a mineral aspect and something that tastes old and metallic. A nice biscuit sweetness arrives in the middle under a mild hop bitterness with a bit of pepper spiciness. The finish has a bit of alcohol bite and is also metallic

Okay, can you please shorten your official beer description? Ive been drinking quite a bit already tonight, so I dont need such a long introduction.... But its true, this does not come across as a "normal" IPA in many ways, especially the smell & look of it (smells of yeast/beer-in-progress, looks like a lager or other golden brew). Tastes pretty interesting but why are IBUs info not displayed?? "Happy Sleuthing"?? Hey guys, Im not trying to solve a mystery, I just want to have a drink....

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not terrible, but almost bland compared with most IPA I have had. Hardly a scent to speak of. The only pronounced flavor is one I’m not accustomed to, but isn’t bad; just not reminiscent of a standard IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A little different. Aroma and Flavors were hoppy with an earthy malt. Not overly strong but received with mixed feelings. OK I guess.
