COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA is bright copper in color with a wonderful citrusy hop aroma. Island Hoppin has a great malty body that pairs well with the dry hoppy finish. IBU’s 50, Warrior, Cascade, Willamette.

Shared bottle @RBNAG-11. Clear, deep amber. Low off-white head. Discreet aroma of sweet caramelly malts and light fruity and minty hops. Heavily sweet and light peppery malt flavor. Solid bitterness. Light fruity hop flavor. Oily mouthfeel, bordering on sticky. Over the top sweet ending.

Hmm I’ve never seen this before and from the Virgin Islands what the hell. Best by 8/2012 Pours a medium copper color with a dense white head that slowly dissipates to a cap and leaves decent lace on the way down. Smells IPA-ish citrus and sweet caramel malts with emphasis on malt. Taste is mostly caramel, butterscotch and bready malt with a smattering of citrus and earthy hops. Medium thin body with a moderate, level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Mediocre at best and damn you Shipyard for tricking me into buying another one of your beers.

Small offwhite head. Clear amber body. Resiny strawy grainy aroma with earthy plasticky notes. Dry-sweet earthy strawy resiny taste with grassy oily notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish grassy strawy fruity aftertaste. Nice and drinkable. (Bottle shared at RBNAG-11.)

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with citrus. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness and bitterness. Overall an average beer.

Palme (3383) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 31, 2011
0.33l bottle @ RBNAG11. Pours a near-clear copper-orange body with a thin quickly fading bubbly sidesticking head. Aroma is sweet and peachy, lots of tropical fruits and some sweet caramel. OK aroma. Lively carbonation and a fizzing-oily mouthfeel. Flavors are really hoppy, some piny tones. Sharp and accurate. Not really exceptional in any way, but a drinkable and OK tasting IPA.

Braudog (5748) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Bottle. Big head with staying power. Perfect amber color. Musty and dirty character, the hops assaulting your palate with their earthy, pure plant-based woodiness. Not what I expected from a Caribbean brew. (#4351, 10/24/2011)
