2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I’m going to have to grow into this style.
STYLE: English IPA
LOOK: Cooked orange and nearly translucent. Nice dirty head – not that it lasts – that’s most memorable for cutting the foulness.
NOSE: Garbage night, moldy peaches, nutmeg.
MOUTH: Has it gone bad or is this what it is supposed to taste like? Chalky tapwater, butcher shop, cowboy boots. It’s times like these when I have to walk the fine line between giving an honest assessment and respecting the time and effort some people, and probably more than I can imagine, put into this. Let’s call it a learning experience for all of us. (I’m sure a year from now after I have more and more of these that I’m going to regret this review what I wrote about Brooklyn East India IPA because I’ll have developed a taste for raw meats and dusty shoes.)

I love English IPA’s, and this does not disappoint.. Malty aroma blends well with the hop. Clear light amber color. Has that distinctive British taste and palate. Love it.

I expected alot more from this, but sorely disappointed . slightly cloudy, from bottle poured into pint glass , 1 finger white head and hardly any smell. will not buy again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Floral aroma with some malts. Guess the English style is the interlude of graininess between the earthy up front hops and the bitter aftertaste. A bit light, but a unique IPA.

bottle. amber with small head .rather light body with mild hop bitterness. was expecting a far bigger beer than this from the name, but this is solid.

The IPA is unique. The hops aroma is pleasant without the dominant citrus that might be expected. The mouthfeel is smooth cut by the acidity of the plentiful hops. The flavor is good but the malt backbone is somewhat muted and it limits my ability to really like the beer.
