Hazy brown on the pour into a pint glass from a 22oz bomber. One finger white head was 1 finger high. A small head lasted throughout the beer. Lacing is consistent and lingering. Dry hops, brown sugar, and a bit of citrus is on the nose. Taste was thick. Grains and dry hopped syrupy taste. Mellower on the finish. Carmel notes sprinkle through as well. Mouthfeel is different. Creamy and syrupy thick at the same time. Alcohol is well hidden for a 9+ beer. This beer is good - if you like thicker beers it should bump up to very good.

A- 12oz bottle from the mixed IPA pack poured to a snifter with a dark caramel, amber body and a pinky sized white cap. The head has a fairly thick foamy, creamy texture with good retention.

S- Citrus, zesty hops that also carry pine notes atop a somewhat, but not overly, malty base. Caramel and slightly toasty. Floral and slightly fruit as well.

T- Cascade hops deliver a floral and zesty hop emphasis to the beer's flavor. Also hop notes of pine, herbal and apricot. Malts provide a base with caramel, fresh cracked base grains, toast and biscuit notes. Slight yeast pale fruits and bread.

MF- Frothy, moderately creamy body with a medium-heavy thickness overall. The carbonation is very smooth and it lands in a medium-high level. Finishes with a slight warming and moderately bitter feel on the palate.

After reviewing this mixed pack of IPAs from Shipyard I am left happy with my $14 purchase for the 12-pack. A solid pack with a Black, English, Double and American IPAs. I think they deserve just a bit more credit.
