Beer is okay, nothing special. Poured with a sudsy off white head and a clear amber color. Aroma was just basic hoppy and malty. Tasted malty, hoppy, and bitter sweet. Decent body. Slightly bitter finish and drinkable. Not especially memorable.

From 12oz bottle. Pours golden yellow, with average white head, good retention and solid lacing. Taste little hoppy, flowers, citrus. Medium bodied. Smooth at the end. Good IPA.

Can on a boat. As unabashedly old-school as they come. This is the kind of beer that probably blew New England palates away in 1993, but Im secretly happy that its still being pumped out. Sure, the flavor is really restrained compared to todays NE DIPA hop bombs, but the world needs a solid, boring, and local old-school IPA.

Scopey (14007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 2, 2016
Keg at A back-alley boozer in Mayfair. It pours clear amber with a substantial off-white head. The aroma is pretty pleasant - sweet, sticky, juicy, plenty of orange marmalade, peach and some pine on the back-end. The taste is bitter - sweet, pine, toasted grain, some grass, orange marmalade, toffee and a touch of spice with a drying finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. I imagine this was pretty stand-out beer back in the day, but in 2016 it is pretty damn average. Remains drinkable.

Draft. Mostly clear burnt orange with a thin white head and ok lacing. Aroma is bread with some floral hops and pine. Taste is more malt forward with floral hops, mild citrus, and a little caramel. Average mouthfeel.
