Pale hazy yellow, small white head. Bready, parfumic hoppy nose. Basic bready, American hoppy flavour. Standard American IPA with slight honey sweetness. Nothing wrong in this brew, but not very interesting.

Bottle, 12oz, at Haand Festival -14. It pours an almost clear body, golden in color and with a small, white head. The aroma is piney and citrus peel-ish, with some malts kicking in. Bitter flavor with piney, citrusy hops on a backdrop of pale malts. Full-bodied, soft and nicely carbonated, with bitter, citrusy finish. I prefer the even more hop forward west coast IPA’s, but this is a really fine one anyway. 140523

Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden with a medium frothy white head that leaves sticky lacing along the glass. The aroma is floral hops with citrus and orange peel. The taste is a crisp hop with grapefruit and a nice bitter finish. Easy to drink, a good IPA from Harpoon.

Scopey (16225) - 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.

MiP (16054) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle. Mild caramelly aroma. Almost clear dark golden colour. Very small white head. Good caramelly flavour. Not overly much, but enough. Slightly high bitterness, clean. Well-balanced. A good IPA for beginners.

bhensonb (15962) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle from Wine Cellar. Amber color with a decent white head. Aroma seems primarily resin. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is more resin than citrus. Finish turns a bit malty with some citrus. It’s a good ale. I’d do it again.
