3.48/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The beer maintains a nice off-white head, but lacks in it's hop aroma. The single hop, Fuggles, offers not only a poor hop flavor, but also a bitter, musty aroma. The color is traditional among IPA's, pale yet slightly higher in lovibond than a pilsner, noting the use of a crystal malt (probably a 20L-40L). It is incredibly drinkable with a low-med body. This is not one of my favorite beers. It lacks all the key ingredients of a good IPA; elevated alcohol, a strong hop flavor, a strong and destinctive hop aroma . IPA's are supposed to be for the beer snob.They are for people who like hops, not the mainstream Budweiser drinker. Be creative. It looks as though they spent as much time formulating this recipe as they did in creating it's label, which in my opinion is absolutely horrible, especially from a noteworthy brewery such as The Shipyard. "Two Thumbs Down!"

3.36/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a light brownish/tan color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is kind of mild, a bit of malts. Taste is also light for the style, malts up front, hops at the finish. Some caramel, and just a bit dry. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is drinkable and decent, but nothing special.
