2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2012 weird IPA. Pours the color of apple juice. Definitely smell some fruit too...maybe a bit of skunk as well. More of the same on the palate. Not a lot of hop to this IPA. Not a bad beer...just a weird one...

An okay beer. Some hops, but I was actually disappointed when the hops faded a bit, which surprised me since I usually prefer sweet flavour to bitterness. A decent beer.

The waitress compared this to an Alexander Keith’s, and thus my expectations were very low. This is much better than that, and is actually an IPA (whereas Keith’s is not). Amber colour, malty and hoppy aroma. Taste is some bitter hops that fade and make way for a malty finish. This is more like a British IPA than an American micro IPA. Not very bitter, but there’s definitely a good flavour here.
