Buzzard’s take on English IPAs. More bitter than your west coast or new east coast IPAs. First few sips will be alarming if you are used to those more floral and hoppy IPAs. It’s an IPA that grows on you though so give it a chance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2nd time at the beautiful bucolic brewery. Wish this IPA was as good as the fancheesicle truck’s grilled cheese, which was perfection.

Bomber shared by John at Thanksgiving. Thanks! Bottled this month. Pours golden brown with a light beige head. Aroma is caramel and pine. This tastes like a decent IPA 20 years ago. Good balance of caramel malt and pine and grass bitterness.

Pours a somewhat hazy (turbid) amber. Lemony aroma, sort of Pine-sol flavor, very bitter, like quinine level bitter. Okay beer.

22 oz. bottle provided by a friend. Don’t know where it came from. Pours a hazed dark coppery amber with a one finger white head. Not much in the way of lace. Light hop aroma with a fair amount of malt. Malt forward flavor, hops are in the back seat. Earthy. Medium bodied w/o much aftertaste. Not bad.

Not what I was expecting... Buzzards should REALLY think about overhauling what they sell in stores. Going to the brewery itself offers you many better beers.

Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a generous white head. Nose is malt and hop; notes of grass and citrus. Flavor is on the bitter side with an odd earthy quality. Astringent finish. Medium body. Moderate carbonation.

Hazy orange, some sediment. NO head but some big bubbles after the pour. Aroma, not really a fan. smells like shoe polish. Rough beer. olive brine. just a strange one.

22 oz. bottle. Cloudy gold light head retention. Bottle bought at the brewery by a friend. Aroma is vegetable and slightly sour, maybe honey.

Body is light and tart. Flavor is like cooked vegetables. Not bitter, more sour..... Jeez, another swing and a miss. Almost a drain pour.

Got in a BIF from ZebraCakez. 22 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, herbal/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, toasted bread, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of citrus/earthy hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp/sticky, and slightly bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/earthy hops and moderate bready malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A spot on east coast style IPA, very enjoyable.
