GBBF. Cask - presumably a special as there was nothing like a 6.0% IPA on the database before I added it. Description taken from the GBBF Programme. Hazy gold beer, little white head. Light palate with superfine carbonation. A fair amount of grain with a dash of honey. Mild tangerine - orange citrus with a whisper of peach. Mild fresh hop spice. Carbonated sting in the finish. Another great condition cask US beer at GBBF - BSF have done a great job!

Clear amber beer. Little suddy head. Nice caramel malt base. Good tangy orange hops on top. Not too bitter. Well balanced.

Very sweet perfume hop aromas. Clear straw with light white head. Stained sap of pine sharply hits and coats your mouth. Big but not out of control.

On tap at Brewmaster’s tavern in Williamsburg. A light golden amber color. Medium bitterness. Muddled hop profile. Average at best.

Light lemon and yeast aroma. Overpowering head poured from bottle. Hazy golden body. Mild bitterness balanced with smooth citrus flavor. Seems closer to an American Pale ale than an IPA(doesn’t make it bad). I like this one a lot. A good beginner for this style as it doesn’t blow the palate away. Love to have this one again.

Bebum (1039) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 19, 2015
Clear, amber, evanescent head. Full body, intense flavor, low carbonation and heat, lingering but rather boring aftertaste. Very bitter, dry, good acidity balancing the whole. Very hoppy and malty, resiny, not very complex. Intense but not very interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not the best IPA I’ve ever had. Aroma is mostly citrusy grapefruit. Only a mild hoppiness. Don’t know if it was a bad bottle, but it was also pretty watery. ehh. not so good

Rating from March 2013...12 oz bottle....malted aroma overpowers the hops...its been in my fridge for almost a year, so that may be why....rich copper color with a skimming of a head....very malt forward flavor....its good, I like IPA’s like this...tasty & well rounded

Dark amber pour with fairly thick white head, some hop astringency on the nose, flavors of bitter citrus peel. There is something in this that I can’t put my finger on that is rubbing me the wrong way, perhaps the buckwheat? But I don’t know.

kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a rather too-large frothy white head that took a good long while to settle down. The nose is lightly citrusy with a touch of pale malt, and light caramel. The flavor is just lightly bitter with a little citrus and floral notes. The hops are a little too light to qualify for IPA levels as far as I’m concerned, but I guess we call it what they call it eh? Finishes with a mix of light brown sugar and caramel sweetness. Light bodied with a little clinginess and soft fizzy carbonation. This is an APA at best, and not even a great one of those.
