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".

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.

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.

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.

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.
