COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Post Road IPA is a full-bodied strong, hoppy pale ale in the traditional India Pale Ale style. Brewed from pale, crystal and aromatic malts, it has a sturdy malt backbone supporting a bracing bitterness which follows through to a clean, dry finish. The beer is dry-hopped with Cascades and the prized East Kent Golding variety, bringing out a fresh hop aroma.

Not to much to it. The color is cloudy pale yellow, not to intense. A small nose of bittering hops. Somewhat salty. I was disappointed in the bitterness. The hops were not strong for an ipa. Would not drink again.

On tap at Brooklyn Brewery, Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY. Clear amber hued ale having lasting white head with good lacing. No discernable carbonation. Some hop aroma. Medium bodied that starts with slightly sweet malt with some nutty flavor. A notable off-flavor (oxidation product?). Finishes with lingering hop bitterness. A rather mediocre beer.

Dude....I think something was wrong with my beer. It tasted sour, but I donít think it was skunked. Maybe just slightly expired or something. No "best before" date. My score is boosted a little to compensate for the geriatricy or whatever. From what I could make out, it didnít have as much hops as Iíd like.

I have to agree with all thatís been said already.This could be a nice session ale for me(if it had to be) but I wouldnít crave this as I would other offerings.

I prety much agree with every comment already made, nothing at all spectacular but drinkable. Would much rather have a Victory Hop Devil.

This is a decent IPA. I enjoyed it going down. Not much of a lingering taste.

A decent IPA. Iím going to stick with Harpoon and Victory.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2001
A largely middle-of-the-road IPA, lacking much in the way of outstanding bitters, hops, malts, body, or much of anything else. Quite drinkable, but just nothing interesting about it at all.

Rather muted, fruity rendition of the style.
