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 I’m secretly happy that it’s still being pumped out. Sure, the flavor is really restrained compared to today’s NE DIPA hop bombs, but the world needs a solid, boring, and local old-school IPA.

Scopey (14723) - 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.

Overly floral not much on citrus and malt to balance. Good color and slight creamy white head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Dodd Stadium in Connecticut. Nice to find an IPA at a minor league ball game, even if it is a rather mediocre one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Citrus scents, mostly oranges and hops. Orange gold pour with fast dissipating medium bubble head. Very sour hoppy flavor. Crisp and drinkable. Nicely balanced IPA.

3.2
LazyPyro (1203) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2016
355ml bottle. Clear golden orange with a one-two finger white head, good lacing and retention. Aroma of floral citrus hops, pale malt. Taste of citrus floral hops, sweetish malts, hardly any bitterness for an IPA. Flavours are more malty than hoppy. Medium body, medium carbonation. It’s alright but not noteworthy.
