Good solid IPA. Doesn't try to be unique just for the sake of being unique. It is on the mild side, but does every beer have to knock your socks off? Not in my book. It's totally drinkable without anything too funky in it. If you are a beer snob this beer isn't for you, but if you Enjoy beer, try it. It's my default beer when I've been hopped at too much.

First off, twist-top? Are you for real? Bad sign out of the gate...

A - Hazy amber body with thin white head. Not a lot of retention but some lacing.

S - Floral and pine hop notes and deep sugar malts.

T - Like the smell, floral and pine hops upfront. Malts are not as strong, but earthy and smokey.

M - Medium/light body with moderate carbonation. Very slick and somewhat thin.

O - I'm glad Beeradvocate shed some light on this beer. I was about to accuse it of having the same off-taste I'm used to when drinking Shipyard beer, only to realize it's made by Shipyard. This beer features the same English hop flavor profile that I greatly dislike from all Shipyard brews. This is a personal opinion but one that I've heard from many friends. I just can't drink anything made by Shipyard. I always want to support local breweries and as long as there are others who enjoy their brews, great. But this, like all of their beer (especially Export!), is just not for me.

Pretty disappointed with this IPA. The other Shipyard IPA's are much better. Has an astringent, soda water taste. Not terrible, but not good. Found it at the local grocery store and decided to give it a try, running low on my best brew. This will not be on my "buy list".
