An average, pleasant IPA. Poured from a 12 oz bottle, obtained at Total Wine Chesapeake, into a pint glass. Slightly hazy coppery color with a big (hard pour) off white head. Average retention and some lacing. Smell is pretty mild, mostly biscuity malts.

Tastes pretty good. This is a balanced IPA not a hop bomb. THe biscuity/bready malts are front and center. There is some undefined bitterness in the finish. No pine or citrus focus, just some bitterness.

Mouthfeel is a bit watery up front, better as you drink more. Still crisp and refreshing though.

Nothing special, but goes well with food, not a bad beer.

22 oz bomber pours a medium amber with decent but rapidly dissapating head. Aroma is grainy malt, not much in the way of citrus or pine. Taste is sharp malt with a metallic off-flavor, hops are bitter but not particularly flavorful. This one has a nasty aftertaste that unfortunately won't let go of my tongue. Overall very dissapointing. I used to work very close to Scuttlebutt before moving to Texas and always regretted not checking them out (although I was into craftbeer much at the time). Based on this beer I wasn't missing anything...
