Not hoppy enough for my tastes... Decent flavor and smooth though... Just needs a hoppier flavor ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Theydon_Bois (8081) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle at Chriso tasting (thanks Chris) 18/11/12. Lightly hazed golden with a thin white head. Subdued nose, some apple notes, light hops, a little piss. Tastes of hops, but again no big hit, fruits, a little caramel. Medium bodied with light spritzy carbonation. Pretty average IPA, a little on the bland side - wouldn’t revisit.

Leighton (10675) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2012
Bottle at the cabin, NH. Pours clear, classic gold with a moderate, white foam head. Nose holds lots of sugary malts, hints of honey and straw. Flavor is medium to heavy sweet with some strong orange, light marmalade, light bitterness of juicy hay, hints of lightly toasted sugars, very faint pine, light dough. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Sticky finish mostly from sugars, not much resinous hops, more deep and sweet citrus, lightly ripened, pervasive bready malts, hints of caramel. It’s just too damn sugary sweet, with not nearly enough bitterness to offset. I’ve noticed this characteristiv in several of the Lefty’s beers, where it seems like not all of the sugars have been fermented out. I’ll have to try these fellas again next time I’m in MA to see if the beers have improved.

CamdenD (1092) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUL 21, 2012
Perhaps an older bottle -- tastes of a mild golden ale (see Steel Rail -- BBC). Little noticeable hops anywhere. Color is piss yellow. Taste and aroma are certainly drinkable. That’s it. Will have to try again however.

jcwattsrugger (11078) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2011
22oz bottle-pours a big foamy light tan head with hazy gold color (once the full bottle is poured. The carbonation is way high (probably around 3volumes). I will rate this after having swirled out much of the excess carbonation. Aroma is fruit-peach/mango, light malt. Taste is fruit-peach/mango/pine hops, sweet light malt. Maybe I should adjust to 1.0 to offset IPAdad and earthtones.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 16, 2011
22oz bottle. Pours out a decent amber hue, white head, good retention. Aromas are light, nothing jumping out at me, some biting pine from the hops, maybe some citrus, but it’s light. Palate is a bit jumbled and two fold, both with the harsh finish, and thin flavor up front. I’m just not a fan, I really think their dark beers are great, but the IPA is not for me.

jtclockwork (8173) - , New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Bottle shared by jcwattsrugger. Pours cloudy gold with big white head. Way overcarbonated. Nose of tropical fruit, sea salt, mango, guava and peach. Taste is almost all fizz with those same flavors in body. Once it settles, it tastes like a dry salted mango and is quite delicious. Medium body.

altonbrownd (3735) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2011
Bottle from Kimballs. Hazy amber body with big head. Nose is hops and fruits, pine but also bananas. Taste is also hops and bananas. Pretty good IPA. Not too overpowering but okay.
