COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A unique India Pale Ale, showcasing our favorite hops. The Amarillo®, Simcoe®, and Nugget hops give this beer a bounty of hop flavor and aroma without too much bitterness in the finish.

Murky amber color out of the bottle with a thin, whispy white head. Some perfumy and citrus hop notes in the nose. Strong malty backbone of stale bread with lots of grapefruit rind and applesauce flavors. Pretty standard IPA.

On tap at the Matunuck Oyster Bar - Matunuck, RI. Dank, rich, lemony aroma that nicely highlights the Amarillo and Simcoe in a way that I enjoy. Flavors are solid too, although I think the coarse Nugget bitterness comes on a little strong. This is very drinkable and surprised me. The hoppiness was at a flavor level that I would seek out and it wasn’t too sweet nor too flawed.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy copper/gold with citrus aroma and wonderful hop taste. Very fresh tasting, medium body. A nice smooth IPA.

tap - Pours hazy amber-orange with a good citrus hop aroma. It has a crisp bitter flavor with citrus and flower notes. Well balanced and medium bodied, this IPA is very tasty.

Bottle- Pours acopper color with a billowy head andnice lacing. Aroma of citrusand pine along with fresh grain. Taste of citrus and fresh grain. A nice bitterness and a dry finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and refreshing. Well balanced. Alcohol is well hidden. Much better beer than the name implies. Not an overpowering IPA. Easy drinker

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2011
Deep amber pour with a tight white head. The aroma is very hoppy. Lots of dank hoppiness along with a touch of sweet fruit. Pine/citrus and a little bit of toasted malt underneath with a little bit of orange peel as well. Lots of fruit and a bit of soft sweetness in addition to that. Chewy resinous flavour with a touch of fruit. Clean and chewy but a little bit of sweetness coming through on the back. Tasty stuff really.

mcox90 (1588) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 18, 2011
12 oz bottle. Pours amber/orange with a 1/2" off white head that lasts. Aroma is earthy with pine resin and light grains. Flavor is initially quite bitter & astringent, but there is a nice semi sweet malt profile that makes itself known after the first couple sips. Smooth, moderate bodied palate. Nice, solid IPA, I’ll buy this again.

nearbeer (3847) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 15, 2011
12 oz. Clear orange-amber with a huge spongy head that lingers. Crisp citrus, florals, earthy grain and caramel on the nose. Taste is earthy grain, butterscotch, and light caramel apple on the front. Bitter, earthy citrus and wooden hops enter quickly. Velvety soft, near-medium body is tingly with hops and smoothly carbonated. Almost seems to show more abv than 7.2% at times. Has the characteristic Shipyard twang of British ale yeast and/or kettle hops that make all their beers taste similar to me, but this one has a cleaner taste on top of that.

tommeagher (222) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Super hoppy aroma. Cloudy browny haze. Malty, hoppy, dry, bitter. Long, bitter linger. A bit of spice to it. Not bad.

Edmoe (241) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Dark copper pour with thick off-white head. Good lacing. Strong piney aroma with hints of fruit and citrus. Flavor is very hoppy with pine. The slightest diacetyl is discernible but doesn’t detract too much. Good mouthfeel. A very good beer.
