The expectation that this IPA is going to be bitter will not disappoint, bitter from first taste to the last. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

Capa (3298) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2017
Golden. Bitter citrus, light toasted malts, lemon, and finish with light sweetness and a lasting bitter bite. Medium bodied. While this isn’t a powerhouse IPA, I could see myself cruising though a few pints.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy orange gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is citrus and pine. Medium body, bubblegum, grass, a bit soapy, decent.

Draft at brewpub. PAle gold, creamy off-white head. Creamy orange-citrus body, sweet hops, a little caramel sweetness at finish. Bit of a tart malty body. Creamy beer, perfectly fine but not too exciting.

mcberko (17836) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at Big Time, pours a hazy golden dark orange with a small white head. Aroma is very gentle, with English hops and light bready malt. Flavour is on the sweeter side but still balanced, with caramel malt, bready English malt and a very mild hoppiness. Not my type of IPA but it’s well constructed for what it is.

Ferris (15275) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2015
Draft - Caramel and earthy orange hops. Clear copper with with a thin white head. Caramel and orange earthy hops, very English in style. Decent.

Draft pour at the brewery. Pours a copper color with a very mild malt citrus aroma. Bitter hops on the flavor. This is a good IPA, but the flavor is pretty mild to me. Kind of an empty finish as well. What I do taste is all good, but I’m left wanting a little more. Overall this is a good beer though, very drinkable. Smooth flavor. Good stuff.

Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Draft at big time. My 3rd attempt to rate this. Clear amber pour. Citrus (lemon), toast, sweat, even some bubblegum. Lightly sweet, no caramel, bitter finish. Pretty okay.

3.7
beastiefan2k (3981) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Rating the cask version, which is a lot better than the standard. Super hazy orange color with a thick long lasting head. Well done appearance for a cask. Very fresh bouquet of C hops with the yeast and malts of a British IPA (tea, biscuit). As is often for their beers its like London but with fresh American hops.
