Now that Lazy Boy has started circulating their IPA in 220z bombers....it's time for another review.

Appearance was amazing...deep, clear, orange amber with and incredibly thick head that left chunky lacing down the the side of the stein. One of the best head retentions I've seen in an IPA. Smells were of citrus and hops. Taste was a blast of hops in the beginning with citrus and a touch of pine. Followed by a very nice malt balance and a grapefruit bitterness that lingers on. Mouthfeel was also very good. Smooth, creamy, anything but a thin IPA. Drinkablility for a 6.2% is really really good...mmm more please.

One of the best IPAs I've had, quality all around. Give one a go if you happen to find one.

This beer has no hop aroma, smells of crystal malt and maybe some biscuit. Can't taste any amarillo but just a little chinook and a whole wheel barrow of malt. Good clarity and mouthfeel but to call this a northwest IPA is like calling a Toyota Camry an American car. Just because its built in the northwest... Doesn't mean...
This beer would go well with some fish and chips while watching cricket when visiting burton.

color looked good, smell was right but the taste fell flat for me. Very Flat finish. Certain you have to be a local to appreciate this taste. Food will not help this beer get past the flat side. The hop is there then it goes Flat? Why? The Bitter is there but the Flat follows Why? I do not know.

It seemed a bit all over the place when I first tasted it but after a few sips it all came together and then a top shelf PNW IPA arrived. The nose grew in its hoppiness and the beer rounded out to showcase both the hops and the malt bill. I could drink a few of these and it shows that Lazy Boy is making some great beers

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a ruddy copper amber with a thin off white head with decent retention and light slippery lacing. Aroma is bready, slightly biscuit malt with light grassy hops. Flavor follows with biscuit malt and moderate grassy, neutral hops. Long lingering hop bitterness in the the aftertaste. Light to medium bodied. This is definitely an English style IPA, with more emphasis on malt and bittering hops than aromatic hops. Flavor progression a bit unbalanced, could have used the finish bitterness in the main flavor. A satisfactory traditionally styled IPA.

Poured from a 650ml bottle. Not exactly "pale," this India Pale Ale pours a more brownish orange colour with a thin, tan head, an indication that this isn't a typical NW IPA. The aromas are mostly malty and grainy with some hop spice mingled in. Flavour-wise it's similar, with the hops playing something of a second fiddle to the rich malt character. Has a nice dry, bitter finish. More like an English-style IPA than US/NW.

Almost no head when pouring, even with a little intentional sloshing. Great lacing though! Nice dark copper colour. Very mild aroma, just a soft note of piney hops and a little bread. The heaviness and carbonation is perfect for an IPA, but the finish and the hop level leave a little to be desired. The biggest bite is actually the pale malt, followed by a very mellow pine/resin hop flavour, which lingers on the back of the tongue for a few seconds. I get little hints of citrus, and then little hints of soap, every few sips. The off-dry finish I found surprising, but maybe the most notable thing about this beer. Not one I would buy again, but certainly not one I regret buying.

Thanks to pwnzilla, once & future trader, for this bomber. Used to try to wash out the taste of that god-awful sheet we just had out of, getting dizzy, awweegdg. 22 oz. bomber. Split.

Pour is appropriately IPA, on the orange, even leaning red, end of the spectrum. Nose is sweet, floral, almost like a rose bud...odd. Not like any IPA I've ever sniffed. Good? Bad? Let's see.

Lazy Boy is an IPA. That much I should have known. Middling bitterness comes to the fore, with that underlying flowerness. Then sweet malt rushes in. Hops gone.

That's it. Bitterness, malt. Look up average IPA in the dictionary, & there should be a picture of this beer.

A - Bright like a new penny and fairly clear. Fairly dense was that shows some signs that it aspires to be rocky...yet it doesn't get there.

S - Hints of orange and a whiff of rose with some leafy mint lingering in the background.

T - Earthy and herbaceous hops melded in that layered PNW way...this one does it very well. For some reason it comes off as more of a pale ale at first, but the bitterness does creep in as the glass empties and makes itself known that this is an IPA. Flavors are of wet grass, citrus, and light fruitiness over biscuit malt.

M - Medium body and medium-low carbonation. While the hops are smooth up front, there is a rough edge which provides a bite without being sharp. I find a dry bitterness grabbing hold in the back of my mouth.

O - This is a trip to the Northwest for your mouth. It is truly a PNW style which steers clear of the chatacteristics of California brand of west coast IPAs. And as much as I'm a fan of the Cali brand, bravo to Lazy Boy for keeping it local and real.
