on tap at rePUBlic, I’m hoping this is just an old keg, otherwise they don’t love hops.. there are none in this beer, and i get no simcoe which is easily distinguised.. sad attempt at an IPA barn0216 (551) - California, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Double dry hopped special at Fulton brewery. Cask pour into brandy tulip, hazy chestnut brown, fine head, lots of lacing. Floral and citrus hop nose. Very creamy mouthfeel, initial hop bitterness melts to a strange bread midrange and then finishes with a hint of alcohol and more hops. Hard to rate. Nothing is obviously wrong but it tastes just a bit off. Maybe that malty midnote... TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2012
12 oz bottle pour into pint glass. Good color and flavor, not a palate wrecker by any means. Solid hop flavor with a clean taste. Solid head on the pour, decent tracing SuIIy (1984) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle. Pours a light coppery color with a small egg shell head. Nose is earthy notes with resiny hops. Palate is medium with a slickness and a bite in the swallow with a throat sting. Flavors of tobacco, resiny hops and earthy malts.

Tap at o’donovan’s. Deep apricot with small of white head. Aroma is muted,a bit of malt. Flavor is sweet with a hint of hops. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear dark orange color. The head was two fingers high and off white. Malt-predominant nose with caramel, butter scotch, and steeping barley notes. There was also a decent whiff of citrusy hop. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet with mild bitterness. Malt heavy as foreshadowed by the aroma. Buttery caramel and light pine-like hop. Not bad, but too much butterscotchy malt backbone and not enough bitterness for me. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 29, 2012

Golden in color, clear with a thin head. Easy drinking ale with light hops and mild malt.
Big thanks to Brian for this bottle.
Pours very dark for an IPA, a deep clear amber with a small soapy beige head.
Aroma is mainly floral hops, grassy with some pine, and lots of pale malts. Caramel and citrus are subtle.
Taste is decidedly English-style IPA with toasted caramel malts showing out more than the hops, which take on a grassy character with citrus only in the background.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and bitter, but with a bit of metallic character.
As English IPAs go, it’s a decent one, but probably not my favorite. tedovertu (298) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - JUN 2, 2012
