Tap at the brewpub september 2012-pours lite orange with a small soapy eggshell head and good lacing from the start. Nose is pine and diacytl, very brit inspired but with more piney hops (less earth than a brit ipa). the yeast quality is all brit though. lots of pine/resin on the flavors with lingering sweet caramel malt and diacytl. damn this stupid big D, go away! Even so, i actually thought this beer was pretty good and what the brewery was going for. If it didnt have the big D you would see close to 4 ratings from me. However, this is a pretty authentic Brit inspired IPA. jkwalking05 (4731) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Amber in color. Aroma is of grass, caramel, woody hops. Taste is of pine, spicy hops, grass, pepper. drjay44 (3676) - Salida, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Draft at a local. Listed as 7% ABV, and called an English IPA. Pours a thin off white head, over a clear amber (SRM 15) body.....nose is light malts, toffee/caramel, grapefruit peel, resin....taste is moderate toffee/caramel, mild raisin, hints of plum, finishing with a moderate to strong resin, pine bitterness.....mouth feel medium, slight astringency, minimal stickiness, carbonation adds a hint of acid tingle. This is most definitely not an English IPA. It is far too hopped, and the malt backbone is too restrained. However as an IPA (not style specific) it is perfectly nice, well balanced, and appropriately complex. For an English IPA, it needs less hops and more crystal/caramel malt.

(500ml bottle, courtesy of Errl) Pours a clear golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of weed, grass, grapefruit, earth, and caramel. Flavor of grass, dank, herbs, pine, and caramel with a mildly bitter finish. puboflyons (3396) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 23, 2013
From the 26 fl oz bottle. Nice looking medium copper amber pour with a lingering off-white head. Moderate aroma of earthy hops and caramel malts. The body is a bit better than medium. Quick upfront sweetness followed by a bolder hop finish. Vague grapefruit. A decent IPA.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 On tap at the brewery. Light amber and clear with a light tan head. Aroma of butterscotch, bitter hops and sweet malts. Similar flavor, bitter and sweet, nicely balanced. Medium body with a lingering finish. Update: On tap at.Falling Rock, pretty tasty for an English IPA. No butterscotch in this one Christpuncher (3108) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2015
A very mellow ipa. Strong malt back bone with a very light hopps balance. Had to get this one due to the name. Smells citruscy. Pours orange with a thin cream head

(cask/ Man IPA) Dull amber-orange, slight haze; yellowish, quite reasonable head. Flowery nose, hoppy, bread dough. Spice-flavoured bread, notes of ginger, plenty of (British) hops, orangezest, nearly tart. Medium bodied, long peppery aftertaste. A relief from the other super-dull B&B beers tasted.

Had this on cask. Clear amber color, thin white head. Big, assertive hop flavor, intense grapefruit and dandelion. Finishes with some alcohol burn but that may be the hops. Not much malt character, just caramelly sweetness. Oddly soapy aroma. A good IPA, just a little one-dimensional. BeerandBlues2 (13199) - Escondido, California, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Tap @ 16th Colorado Brewfest. Pours mahagoney with a small tan head. Grapefruit and fruit hoppy aromas. Grapefruit hoppy and caramel malt flavor. Medium bodied and fizzy palate.
