As a somewhat mainstream craft beer Shipyard IPA is OK. The pour creates a small white head. The appearance is lighter in nature than many IPAs. It also has a light haze to it. The aroma has hints of citrus. The taste is an immedaite hop sensation that quickly dissapates. The actual flavor is lacking and I really didnít detect much of any unique flavor. The aftertaste is a little bitter that subsides after 10 - 15 seconds. I buy an occasional 6 pack when Iím somewhere I cannot get a better IPA.

downender (6134) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle from Gardiner & haskins, Bristol. Ple gold with a big, white, head. Hay, lemon fruits, cereal mlats, a touch of sharp, grassy hop and moderately bitter finish. Ok.

foxo82 (673) - Tamworth (via Leicester), Staffordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle from Tesco, Stourbridge. Amber with a hoppy ginger aroma. Tastes like an English bitter - long bitter finish - but with slight fizz to the feel. Ok.

Graham77 (226) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JUN 26, 2014
355ml bottle from Tesco. From my limited experience of US beer Id say this has a typical US IPA flavour but I have definitely tasted better. Quite drinkable but really not great.

Silvan7 (633) - Samarate, ITALY - JUN 24, 2014
Bottle @ home. Ambrata, limpida schiuma beige abbastanza grossolana abbastanza persistente. Aroma floreale, di miele díacacia, caramello, biscotto al burro, malto. Gusto abboccato allíingresso di miele e caramello, poi abbastanza amara, scorza di pompelmo decisamente luppolata. Poco corposa, abbastanza carbonata poco calda equilibrata, abbastanza armonica.

martinrumsam (484) - BARNSTAPLE, Devon, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle. Clear amber with transient white head. Aroma a little musty and bready. Bitter taste but not the hop profile you expect from an American IPA due to the chosen hop variety. A let down.

I should have looked more closely at the label. I saw "American Craft Beer" and failed to spot "fuggles". Donít get me wrong, itís a decent traditional _British_ IPA, with good bitterness and well-balanced malt. But to call itself "American Craft" is, in my opinion, disingenuous. If it wasnít for that Iíd score it 2.9 overall

Scopey (6138) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2014
Bottle from tesco. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is grainy, grass, mild sweetness, earth and straw. The taste is grainy, dull bitterness, grass, florals, some sweetness and earth with a dry finish. Light-medium body and average carbonation. Fuggles IPA? No thanks. Really basic stuff.

Cybion (51) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours clear amber with half a finger of creamy white head, which promptly vanishes leaving little lacing. Weak aroma of honey, wholemeal bready malts, and a little bit of floral hops. Taste is quite watery with background notes of honey, bready and biscuit malts, citrus, and apple. Bitterness is only slight.Thin-bodied and highly carbonated, this is disappointing, and reminds me too much of Greene King.

prawlie (1077) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Bottle into a Leffe glass. Opaque copper, effervescent with a creamy head. Grassy aroma with some malt. Dry, bitter beer, pleasant. Crisp rather than light. This is reasonable stuff, I could have a couple of these happily if I was out with friends, but you would find something better in a proper beer joint.
