Serving Type: 500mL Can

A- Pours an Orangey Red colour (think cedar) topped by a 3 finger head that quickly dissipates to a think skim. Tons of lacing on the glass.

S- Citrusy Hop notes that are a classic representation of a West-Coast style IPA. Mild Pine notes.

T- This IPA is a hopbomb for sure. Not much other than citrus hops (lemon/grapefruit). Little bit of pine comes through

M- Medium mouthfeel with low carbonation.

O- Solid IPA and one of the better beers I've had from Shipyard. Tasty even with the high ABV.

Celar reddish amber colour with half nche of yellowish head. The carbonation streams has 2 different speeds. Excellent lacing that almost covered the the side of the glass and great retention.

Mild aroma of citrus and fresh paint.

The taste is a burst of hops. Fpra; amd cotris (grapefruit and lemon) bitterness with an extra lick after about 30 seconds. More piney in the aftertaste. Left with a pit of bitterness at the very back of the mouth. Lingering taste hours later.

Medium feel.

A well-made American IPA with a variety of hop flavours.

Draught. Pours deep amber with big clingy white head. Mild hoppy nose is matched by rather boring, slightly skunky taste. Underwhelming hoppinessess.
