COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
XXXX IPA is a non-traditional American IPA with a brilliant copper color and the classic citrus nose of Cascade hops. This beer demonstrates a unique balance of malt-inspired, delicate red grapefruit sweetness and lingering hop dryness. The OG and final Alc./Vol. provide the structure and body to balance the harmony of distinct flavors.Cascade, Warrior,Summit and Glacier hops are used for bittering and Cascade hops are added for dry hopping after fermentation. This hop blend is well balanced with malted wheat, pale ale, crystal, and caramel malts. To full enjoy all the flavors, this ale is best drunk at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. This beer pairs well with Cajun dishes, blackened fish, and BBQ. XXXX draws its name from the British brewing convention of using X’s to denote style. 70 BU,s, 1.092 OG. 22 Plato

This is a really good beer and the best beer shipyard has made. Golden pour. white head. Lots of citrus hops, grass and caramel malt. Flavor is well balanced between floral and citrus hops and a nice juicy malt backbone too. Good stuff.

wyzzywyz22 (2037) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2009
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds.Poured a very appealing clear bronze colour with a medium sized creamy beige head which hung around. A lot of appeal in the aroma which had buckets of piney citric hops mixed with caramel malt. The resinous hops and caramel malts are tantalisingly prevalent in the flavour which I found myself enjoying in a very big way. The 9.2 abv barely registers on the alco-radar. Really lovely body and balance to this. Great lingering bitter finish. Top Class. I have friends in Maine I haven’t seen in 16 years.... Time for a visit methinks !

olsvammel (3578) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 13, 2009
It poured a dark golden liquid with a small foam that left a little lacing. It had a smell of grassy hops and butter. It had a taste of butter, grassy hops with a med-high bitterness. An ok IPA, for some reason Shipyard doesnt seem to reach all the way. Something is missing.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 12, 2009
On tap at PP C’Bad. Pours deep amber with a thin offwhite head and good lace. Smells very sweet and caramelly malty, slight cereal, not much hops. Tastes malty and sweet up front, very sweet. Hops build after the sip and mimic an alcohol burn in the throat. Medium/full body, good carbonation.
