3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Pours crystal clear amber, medium creamy beige head, good lacing. Aroma is light line and grapefruit. Flavor is similar, light sweet, medium bitter, pine and grapefruit, touch of caramel backbone. A bit harsh on the end. Basically what american IPAs were fifteen years ago.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2015 Draught. Pours deep amber with big clingy white head. Mild hoppy nose is matched by rather boring, slightly skunky taste. Underwhelming hoppinessess. This is on my don’t-get-again list.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Solid dark malty backing. Prominent hops throughout, a bit of spice and caramel sweetness. Alcohol adds backing rather than something to battle through. Not a standout, but gets the job done.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[6717-20140903] Can. Honey pine needle sugar aroma. Hazy, orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head and some lacing. Bitter sugary corn grains flavour has a long toasted aftertaste. Medium body. Really odd, not favourably so. (4/3/5/3/10) 2.5

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Warm amber in color, with a white fizzy head. Huge amount of citrus and piney notes in the nose. Tons of cascade flavor. Spicy finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours clear, copper, medium off white head and very nice lacing on the glass. Nose is hoppy, some malt notes and some citrus fruit too. Taste is nice and bitter, some balance from malts, dry finish. Nothing over the top, but a nice solid IPA, not bad at all.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body under a one finger fizzy beige head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty typical of a hoppy Shipyard beer, loads of sweet caramel and crystal malt, but at least there’s a fair amount of citrusy hops in here. Still, not really a great combo for the style as far as my tastes go. The flavor pretty well mirrors the aroma, tons of awful crystal malt dominating the flavor. I hate heavy crystal malt in an IPA. A decently bitter and citrusy hoppiness, but no matter how many hops they dumped in here, it can’t make up for a poor malt bill. Medium bodied, sticky and clingy, fizzy carbonation. Pretty bad IPA based on what I like.

Not a bad IPA, but the IBU's are not felt as a true IPA should be. Refreshing, not that bitter.
