3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz brown bottle. A clear orange pour, head is tan. Some ok looking lacing. Hoppy nose, big citrus peels, some caramel notes. Taste has caramel and toffee sweet malts, zippy citrus hops. Finishes with lingering caramel, pine, orange peels, a little alcohol and a grapefuity bite. Medium level of bitterness. Overall, an alright double IPA, not very agressive, drinkable and balanced for it’s size, better than I was expecting actually. From The Shipyard IPA mixed pack.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a golden amber color with a finger of white head that settles to leave some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and fruits with some citrus highlights. Taste is a citrus and pine hop bitterness with a nice caramel and grainy malt sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A pretty nice DIPA that is balanced and tasty. Recommended.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the bottle available in the Shipyard IPA sampler 12 pack. Drank from the bottle. Aroma is comprised of peach, citrus, caramel malt, and bread. Taste is much the same with the addition of resin qualities. The brew starts off sweet but ends with a nice bitterness. Heavy bodied beer with moderate carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. The beer reminds me more of an English IPA then a double. Worth a try.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a snifter.
The appearance was a hazy golden burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing sticking and then slowly sliding into the beer.
The smell had some burnt caramel malts with a subdued bready toffee up front. Eventually, the sweet citrus hops make their way out but it takes a while.
The taste was mainly sweet and bready with an ample amount of booze in the flavoring.
On the palate, this one sat right at a medium on the body. Sessionable? Not really but I wasn’t expecting it to be due to the fact that this is a DIPA.
Overall, decent DIPA as if it would have been done by an English brewer. Though I don’t think this is the best DIPA on the market, I look at this one as if there’s such a style as an English DIPA.
