This was a very average ipa. Not much character, nothing really exciting. Not overly hoppy yet still not balanced. Disappointing.

750 ml bottle purchased at the Westmere Beverage Center (Albany, New York) on September 18, 2012. Honey copper, medium head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine hops, notes of coffee. Citrus hop flavor, notes of burnt coffee, bitter citrus. Unusual taste, but I loved it!

Bottle date 03/27/12. Poured amber with a creamy off-white head that settled to a ring and left good lace. Aroma of caramel and hints of dark fruit and alcohol. The flavor found caramel backed with citrus hop, pepper, dark fruits, and light alcohol. Medium body and a mild bitterness.

Bottle courtesy of and shared with Iphonephan. Poured cloudy golden brown with a light frothy head and some fairly long lasting lace. Nice malty aroma. Warm bitter typical DIPA flavour but with a rather unusual aftertaste which I'm having trouble placing. Not my favourite DIPA, but nice to taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taster at Standard Market. Certainly a big smack of hop in the nose and on the tongue, even in my little sample. A little estery for a big IPA, which gives it a fruity note playing off the hops. Bitterness seems only lightly piney and more juicy than citrusy. That may be because I was sampling wines before turning to Standard Markets amazing tap list.

750ml bottle to the dome. Drank in September 2012, bottled in September 2011..ouch! EIther way seems to hold up quite well visually, nice steady beige head over a red-orange-brown body. Some mild seashore hops in the aroma. Not bad or off, but assumably a little more malty and less hoppy. Big bold malt tones and a resinous hoppiness bring it quite close to US Barleywine territory. Pretty solid offering, definitely respectable for holding up after a year.
