3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, FL - ABC Liquors - Betton - 12 oz bottle. Pours a murky dark orange, sticky snow white head with a trace of lacing. Aroma has some slight spruce notes, but is more floral and crystal malt focused. Flavor has some nice grapefruit bitterness, some apricot fruitiness and hint of spiciness. Mouthfeel has a nice tanginess to it. Not bad at all.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy orange bronze colored body. The yellow tinted khaki head is pleasing to my eye. Strong grapefruit is backed up with hints of pine resin with the first whiff. A note of caramel is also detected. Wow, this one is surprisingly bitter up front. Tons of grapefruit from the start through the woody pine resin finish. Dandelions and some bread crust are also present. A pretty good experience overall.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Oh, Shipyard. Shipyard, Shipyard, Shipyard. You know what? At this point, it’s not you, it’s me. I knew what was going to happen, and I went back to you anyway. And sure enough, everything starts out fine. I think to myself "this time its gonna be different" but things calm down, the initial excitement fades, and then BOOM - butter flavors come through and ruin everything. Again. I should’ve known...

22oz screw-top bottle, thanks to radarsock. Malt-forward hop flavor. Caramel malts, spicier hop, grainy bread. Light over-ripe citrus. Smooth, lighter carbonation, bigger body, with a slight viscosity. Good bitter taste. Hazy darker amber color. Good foamy off-white head, leaves good sheets of lace. Light sweet. Better than expected. Solid English IPA.
