[Suggested Glassware: Tulip Glass]
The pour was a cloudy reddish amber with an average (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that was mostly lasting and reduced slowly, down to a thin cap and medium collar with really good streaky lacing.
The aroma was of a mild grain malt, pine and citrus hops and a soapy yeast with a touch of caramel and citrus (grapefruit).
The taste was very lightly malty with a mild caramel sweetness in the beginning, and then became moderately hoppy with a decent citrus peel bitterness towards the end. The flavor lasted a bit longer than average following the swallow, with a light citrus peel bitterness lying on the taste buds only for a short time.
Mouthfeel was just beyond light in body and mildly dry in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall this was an IPA that I found to be almost average in taste. Although it was mildly hoppy with a light sweetness and a decent balance, it still was not what I would call a very enticing brew...

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Darker amber with a thin off white head. No lacing on the glass.
Smell: Mild smell of pine and hops. Faint citrus.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops and pine.
Overall: This is an ok IPA. Just saw in the local market and decided to try it.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on October 18, 2013.
The color of the pour is handsome with its medium amber-mahogany color. The head lasts a minute than dissolves.
The aroma has a good dose of earthy hops and sweet malts. It almost reminds more of a brown on the nose but the taste throws that gut reaction out.
The body is light to medium with a decent enough creamy quality.
The taste begins with a vibrant blast of caramel malts but is quickly intercepted by the earthy hop quality. The finish is more sweet than sharp and not terribly long. Waterfront beers are brewed exclusively for grocery stores like the Hannaford chain of Northern New England. It does what it has to to fit into the style but little else. Still, drinkable.

Beer is a clear golden amber with a light head. Aroma is off somehow. The aroma is a mix of orange and hand lotion. I'm not sure how else to describe it. Taste is ok. Malty up front with a slightly astringtent citrus finish. Overall it's mediocre at best. Shipyard is hurting its brand with such a mediore product.

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".

Tasted funny - like moldy or something. No head. What kind of malt are they using? This has to be one of the worst beers I've had in a while - and I've been trying as many "craft brews" as I can lately. I'lm not a fan of products from Shipyard Brewing.
