Not a great IPA, but a surprisingly positive find in the USVI nonetheless. Certainly a step up from Carib and the other watered down swill that passes for beer in these islands. A perfectly pleasant warm weather IPA.

12oz Bottle: Clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma has caramel malts, but no hops. Flavor is the same; Caramel malt, no hops, there is some kind of screwed up bitterness going on. I can’t even say it’s hops! Have you seen my hops? I can’t seem to find my hops. I can’t believe they have the nerve to call this shit an IPA. Wow. Poor representation of the style, very poor.

12oz bottle from ibrew2or3. Pours a clear and somewhat bright copper golden with a light beige head. Nose is very doughy with some sweet caramel notes and just a touch of citrus. Lots of sweet caramel and bready malt up front with a touch of grass and citrus hops in the middle finishing up with some touches of butter and more dusty bitter hops. Too much malt, hops are stale and lacking and bit o butter just rounds it out.

kiefdog (1827) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2010
On tap at Oldsmar Tap House (Tampa, FL). Pours a straw yellow with thin white head. Aroma is sweet and floral with notes of citrus, caramel, honey, grapefruit, floral esters. Flavor is about the same. Light to medium body with a loght floral hop finish.

Ibrew2or3 (8989) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 23, 2010
12oz bottle pours copper with off white head. The aroma has assertive tones of buttery caramel malts with a thin vague tartness off in the background. The taste reveals the hops as tart grapefruit that only occasionally poke through the veil of buttery diacetyl. There was just enough malty caremelness and bitter grapefruit to keep this thing from becoming a drain pour.

12 oz. pours crystal clear dark amber with slim loose white head. enormously buttery nose, totally out of control. creamy medium body with lively carb. buttter and pine on the mid palate. long buttery finish.

The aroma is nice with grapefruit, lemongrass, and pine. There is also some malt but it plays a backseat roll. The appearance is amber gold with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with bitterness upfront and a bittersweet malty finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a good IPA with a complex but slightly astringent bitterness.

On tap at the oldsmar tap house. Worst ipa ever. Smells awful, tastes like a bad amber. Damn nasty.

2.5
sebletitje (10539) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 19, 2009
Tap @ OTH. pours copper, white head. not too sure where the IPA is in this beer. aroma had notable pale malts presence, weak hop aroma, some caramel. flavor, caramel malts, faint hints of citrus hops, nothing that would cause one think this is an IPA. Hop profile is really nill for the style. Meh!
