Nice sharply bitter ale with abundant fluffy head. Hoppy aroma, some pine, some grapefruit. Taste is pure up front hops, tingling on the tongue, bitter abrupt hops finish, with tongue still tingling.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l, at Kitty’s, 20140625) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, tangerine, alcohol and sweetness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, alcohol, tangerine, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, boozy and bitter. A boozier version of the PA of the same brewery. Lacking balance.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a fairly clear orange body with a swiftly settling white head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nose has sweet aromas of caramel, rapeseed, pine needles and some resin. Taste is quite sweet, which softens the blow of an extremely smooth bitterness that stays lingering on the palate. Carbonation is quite soft and the mouthfeel is rich and creamy. This is quite good, the sweetness balances this nicely so its not just a hoppy punch in the face.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In a quart can from Harrika’s Brew Haus in Swansboro NC. Shipwrecked is a deep amber hazy liquid like a good cider with a thick head of off white lace. Nose is rich with evergreen hops. Taste is light malt with a sweet hint of evergreen and floral hop notes. Body is fluid and just a bit fizzy. Finish is good bitters and just a bit of honey as well. A really nice IPA,

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Biggest can I?ve ever seen, almost a liter! Light amber with white thick head. Nose is very hop forward, almost like a newly opened hop pellet bag! Taste is very hoppy, sweet and a bit boozy. Some tropical fruits aswell. Hop resins in aftertaste. I like hoppy beers but this is on the edge of being too much.
