Tap at Union Bar in Boston with commonshawn and samadouche. Pint glass. Clear golden with a hint of orange. Lacing is strong but minimal head. This bartender is quintessential Boston. Aroma is mild but hops at the forefront. Malty aspects come through more than expected. Light in body and pretty easy to drink. Feels like a standard IPA that is definitely approachable to the masses. Some citrus present. This isnt going to blow you away with originality but you wont be unhappy either.

kwik-lime (1852) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 14, 2016
Nice hop bitterness, fairly orangey with some pine, resin and malt to balance. Nice IPA, thought there may be more love for it on here to be honest.

beer-yum (1550) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - APR 8, 2016
Citrus pine aroma in a golden pour. Hop forward balance with a restrained fruity body that leads to a sustained bitter finish. A pleasant brew - but one that doesnt stand out from the crowded field.

asedzie (819) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle. Pours a lightly hazy amber, white head, some lacing. Nose is mildy fruity with floral notes - not too much alpha acid here - very mild. Flavor is very nice with a great blend of soft barley malt and lightly piquant hop resin. Very good for an old-school US IPA.
