Provided from a friend, enjoyed on a gorgeous Wednesday mid summer afternoon during a cool stretch. Appearance is a moderately dark golden brown with a rich and frothy white head that nicely laces to the glass. Aroma is very dry, mostly bready, light bitterness. Taste finishes lightly bitter, definite bready notes, not very IPA like at all, more like an English bitter ale. Not bad though.

Orange gold pour, small white head. Aroma is earthy and caramely. Flavor is toasty, floral, fresh, with notes of apricots and grass.

jhliesen (753) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle from the Latitude 48 IPA mixed pack. Pours a solid amber with a small, off white head. The aroma, well it wasn’t a skunk smell, but it did smell like my friend’s, from high school, feet! The taste was toffee and sweet with a mild, bittersweet finish. Really didn’t taste like an IPA, more of an English ale, makes sense with the hops. Get ride of the smell and this would be a real nice ale. Total wine.

cfrancis (2499) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
I love this idea of taking a good IPA and breaking it down like this. Such a great 12 pack. Pours clear copper with a small white top. Aroma is earthy and apricot. Taste is sharp earthy hop bitterness with a light fruity finish and a caramel back.

joejames (178) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle to English pint. Pours clear golden, two finger head, nice lacing. Aroma of flowers, tropical fruits. Taste solid slightly sweet malt backbone, very subtle earthy, fruity bitterness. Medium body, slightly creamy, medium carbonation. Finishes lightly floral bitter, toasted malts. This would be a great example of a British strong ale. Not bad.

Bottle. Orange pour with a smaller head. Earthy notes and mild citrus. Another solid IPA in the series.

degbert (1196) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with a high, pillowy, large-grained off-white head. Nose is a big slug of apricots, wheat toast, and honey. Sweet on the front of the tongue, with more apricots and honey; not much bitterness, though there’s a subtle smoky or ashy note that counterbalances the sweetness. I don’t know that I’d call this an IPA at all, though I like it quite well. Finish is long and honeyed-stone-fruit. Quite good, but not at all stylistically correct.

backdaft (227) - Menasha Red Light District, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Bottle, from Deconstructed 12 pack. Pours a deep clear copper color with a thick off white head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is malt forward; sweet & bready. Taste follows with a bit of an earthy hop presence. Finish is dry & sweet with minimal bitterness. Not bad, but.....

Great reddish gold color, crystal clear. Lots going on with the malt side -- cereal, toast, caramel sweetness -- but this beer is about the hop. Earthy, some apricot. Pungent earthy orange rind. Kind of a darker flavor. Some floral. Low to medium resin at this quantity. Great idea for a box, and I’m learning a lot, but this is not my kind of hopping for an IPA.

Clear bronze, thin pale head, plenty of lacing. Pine and apricot. Earthy on the finish. Quite dry and not particularly hoppy. As others have said, doesn’t actually taste much like an IPA.
