On-tap at the BBC pub.

I recall the dark copper color of this beer and it still impresses. Lack of any head deflates the appearance somewhat. Scant lacing of the glass. Nose is again all hops. Citrus, pine cones, earthy-grassy notes abound. Not quite as intense as I recall. Flavor is, as expected, hoppy. Not quite as bitter or dominant as the '76 from BBC (which I *much* prefer), Hippie is more tame. Some malt balancing is evident. Dry finish, with a snap of hop twang and just a hint of a grainy aftertaste. Not as smooth as I remember. nor as drinkable. Maybe my palate is getting more sensitive to some of the nuances in beer, but this was just "good".

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Clear light copper in color. Forms a moderate sized off white head. Little retention as it quickly drops to a thin surface coating. Aroma is strongly malty. Lots of caramel malts. There are some light hops: a bit if herbal hops, a little earthy, maybe a little grapefruit, but really, it's the caramel malt. Taste is more of the same. Caramel malts and grapefruit pith. A bit of dirty earthy hops on the back end. Medium bodied. Appropriate carbonation. Pithy bitterness. This is just a mediocre IPA. Tastes like a shitty homebrew.

A: The beer is clear orange amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high light beige head that hardly died down and consistently left a short head covering the surface.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of citrus in the nose - oranges and tangerines seem to stand out in particular.
T: Like the smell, the taste is citrusy and has lots of flavors of clementines along with a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The orange and tangerine flavors in this beer make this unique compared to the other citrus beers dominated by grapefruit.

22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy orange amber color witha nice 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of apple, grapefruit, orange rind, caramel, floral, grass, and herbal spiciness. Ok aromas, but they aren’t very hoppy for an IPA; kind of weak as well. Taste of grapefruit, pine, caramel, toast, orange rind, floral, grass, bread, and herbal spiciness. Good amount of bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, caramel, pine, bread, and herbal spiciness on the finish for a good bit. Good balance of flavors; good bitterness/sweetness balance as well. No cloying flavors at all. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy and fairly crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good IPA. Good flavor balance; very smooth and crisp to drink. Enjoyable stuff for sure.

A - Pours a hazy amber-orange with a big finger of frothy slightly off-white head. The head fades down at a slow pace leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of pine and grapefruit hops with some sweet caramel and lightly bready malts.

T - Starts off with a mix of grapefruit and citrus hops with some bitterness and sweet caramel malts. Through the middle, some pine and floral hops come through with some more bitterness and some bready malts. Finish is a mix of grapefruit and pine hops with some bitterness with some sweet bready and caramel malts.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and bitter finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice hop profile and hop and malt balance.
