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".

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.
