Clear veiled amber color. Creamy beige 1.5 finger head lasting around 10 minutes. Strong legs with some powerful activity.

Pleasant aromas and flavors of fruits, citrus, grains, toffee, floral and herbal spices. Strong apple taste being more sweet than sour, with a earthy feel. Crisp, well intensified and good flavors.

Creamy medium body with nice carbonation. Short and faint finish ending with a bitter smoky clove like mouth feel.

Overall : Good freshness and pleasant flavors, but slightly thin and a faint finish. Accessible being a sweet IPA, not too spicy and quite clean.

The absolute epitome of mediocrity...although I have come to expect this from Shipyard as of late. The only thing unique about their line of IPA's is that their is an apple, pear quality in some of them that hits the right note sometimes. Very, very, very subtle...my mind making up for better days with the brew? Not bad, but not going to grab except in a pinch.

Solid brew. Good ipa. Not as bold and hippy as west coast ipa's but has some solid malt and caramel tastes. Very refreshing for an ipa if you've been drinking a lot of hopper beers due to how it carries the hops. Triceratops love this shot.
