3.49/5 rDev -11.4%

On tap at Dry Dock; poured into a pint glass.
Appearance - a light amber, moderate carbonation and a thin to medium off-white head. Lacing is strong.
Smell - very faint nose, not a lot happening; leads me to believe this will be a fairly balanced IPA with a larger malt presence.
Taste - what I expected after the nose. Tasty, but nothing stands out.
Feel - finishes with some hop bitterness, which saves this from feeling more like a pale.
Overall - just not sure I'm a fan of Dry Dock; I can see the appeal, but a bit overrated.
Serving type: on-tap

22 oz bottle. Pours reddish orange with a medium creamy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is sweet biscuity malt with some grassy hops.
The flavor is subdued - watery malts with a decent sized grassy bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, very subdued for an IPA.

Dry Dock "USS Enterprise IPA" according to Dry Dock's beer menu in their taproom as of yesterday night 07/07/2013. Reviewed live. Expectations are high; Dry Dock makes some damn fine beers.
Served cold, straight from the fridge. Grumbler acquired yesterday. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.
A: Pours a one finger beige/light khaki colour head of decent thickness, light creaminess, and subpar (~1 minute) retention.
Body colour is a somewhat vibrant clear translucent copper. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.
Generally appealing for the style, but not unique or special.
Sm: Oily hops, floral hop character, and caramalt. Clean pale malts. Oily hop character is dominant. No yeast or alcohol is detectable. Some light fruity hop character: mango, citrus, maybe tangerine. An aroma of mild to moderate strength. Pleasant and seemingly balanced, with no overt naked hop bitterness.
T: Caramalt, clean pale malts. Floral hop character. Some caramalt. A bit too sweet. Some lightly juicy mango and tangerine fruit esters. Not real resinous or phenolic per se. Decently balanced and built. I like it, but the depth and intensity of flavour aren't great. Nectary.
Mf: Lightly oily. Smooth and wet. A bit of a biting character, but the carbonation isn't too high - just a biteen overdone. Nice presence on the palate, though it is a bit diminished by the growler serving type. Suits the flavour profile generally well. It'd be better juicier.
Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable, but far from great. It's a solid IPA overall from Dry Dock, and I'd probably get it again. But it's not exemplary.
Serving type: growler

a perfect english american hybrid. called enterprise ipa now, it pours a red amber color, clear and well carbonated. the nose is lovely, its english caramel malts and american west coast hops, aromatic and stinky rich, i like this a lot. the flavor is american hoppy and english mallty, kind of the best of both worlds. it works for me. not sweet, not that bitter, just nicey nice. feel is medium bodied and a little heavy on the residual sugars. this is something i could drink every night, but im not sure i will. one of the regulars at dry dock, but not my favorite. yeast presence could be a little more resounding, but i like this as a drinkable hoppy brew.

Served on-tap at the brewery.
Appearance - Very rich, amber color. Good head and retention.
Smell - Citrusy, piney, hoppy. About what you'd expect from a good IPA.
Taste - Very well balanced. Bitter, but pleasantly so. The hop profile is quite simple, but refreshing in this respect. Balances nicely with the malts.
Mouthfeel - Medium body with just the right amount of carbonation.
Overall - This is a very good IPA. Rather simple, but I really like that aspect of it. Well executed and very tasty. This will definitely be a regular pint when I visit their neighboring homebrew store.
