Appearance/color good on pour (amber). Not much head. Smell is okay, but not really what I would consider typical of a good, craft IPA (ala Dogfish Head 60, Stone, BP Sculpin, or Lagunitas). Not really hoppy either. Would likely have a more mainstream appeal than to a hop-head or someone with a taste for a solid IPA. The closest comparison that I have would be Alexander Keith's India Pale Ale.

12 oz bottle into Hardywood Park tulip. no bottled on date.

A: hazy caramel hued body. head is slightly off-white and frothy. retention is good with very good lacing.

S: caramel aroma. fruity. kinda smells like apple juice. perhaps acetaldehyde? a little bit of herbal bitterness, but nothing substantial.

T: slight bitterness throughout. a earthy hop flavor goes along with it. sweet grain provides backbone, but no more than your typical american IPA.

M: moderate carb on a medium body.

D: i feel like this example may not have been the freshest, but it is a shame when there is no bottle conditioning to let the customer know! the acetaldehyde in the nose definitely threw me off as i felt some late kettle, or even dry hopping, additions would have really helped this brew out. not a great example of a not so great style to begin with.

A-Pours a clear, dark copper color. Big, fluffy, doughy head. The color of the head is almost straw. Good lace.

S-Firstly, malt sets the tone. Caramel and sweet dough.Not sure about the freshness of this one. The hops are dull, herbal and a bit grass with light candied citrus.

T-Tastes old but maybe that's just because its an EIPA. Herbal and tea-like hops are mostly overshadowed by the rich malt. Sweet doughy malt. Then a surprising bitterness sets in. I get some offputting metal too.

M-Medium bodied with growing bitterness. Took me a while to finish the first bottle.

O/D-Did not like this one very much. Needs more hop! A bland cup of suds.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a caramel color with a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, some hops are present. Taste is bitter, some piney hops, a bit of malts, not a lot of flavor other than bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall I found this to be a mediocre beer.

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

No discernible dating on this bottle. If it is this beer is any where near the years listed on the label, it's vinegar...

Pours a hazed amber with a thumb of cream colored head. Never cleared up, good head retention & above average lacing

S: Pears, figs, no hint of hops other than some woodyness

T: Follows the nose, woody hops & mineral dryness, also leafy hops up front. More figgy notes , leafy & woody hops, figs & pears as this warms. Finishes dry & fruity & more like an ESB, some mineral dryness

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, decent balance

I like the concept, had a few burton IPAs over in England; this just seems like a very muted version, drinkable, but not worth buying

Stopped by the publick house for a bite and to pick up some IRS bottles. Ordered a flight with bratwurst. Brew arrivedin a few ounce sample pour. Transparent orange yellow.. Smells of watered down hops. Tastes like an english ipa...which tastes to me like an old ipa. Bitterness is on the finish only. Easy drinking but when i want an ipa i like more of a hop assault.

A decent beer, my first from this brewhouse. Color is a cloudy deep orange. Lots of malt sweetness at first and then it releases the hops, not too much, though. More hops come out as you progress throught the brew. Carbonation is good and maintains throughout the drinking process. Would like to have had more hop bitterness but I assume this is a pretty accurate English style beer
