Malty with a grassy, piney unfiltered hop aroma and flavor. Descent amount of malt and hops balance ok. Metallic hop finish. A bit medicinal. Ok and drinkable IPA, but overall cheap IPA feel. Par for the course for a shipyard beer.

Bottle from a Food Lion in Williamsburg. Good pour, nice deep color. Smell sweet dark malt, some caramel and funk. Taste the same and light hops/bitterness. Fairly weak profiles and balance. Not bad but not terribly good.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Crisp amber coloured body with a copper glow and a thin tan head. Aroma of cardboard, caste sugar, funky grain, a little fruity sweetness and the smallest amounts of hops I’ve smelt. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong grassy flavour at first with the cardboard and caster sugar flavours right behind with not much else going on. Aftertaste is grassy, herbal, floral and a touch sweet - not too great and not complex at all. Overall, a pretty poor IPA as I expected, but perhaps worse than envisioned - not worth trying at all, really. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased a few hours ago at Food Lion in Exmore, Virginia on 21-November-2015 in a mixed six-pack for US$9,99 sampled at home on the Eastern Shore of Virginia on 21-November-2015.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
From a bottle. Aroma is buttery - almost as if it is infected. Taste isn't any better; a hint of sweetness trying to push through. A nasty beer and a very disappointing effort by Shipyard.
