This beer pours a cloudy orange, with a decent off white head. It has a grapefruit citrusy aroma.
It does not taste like a very strong IPA, in fact it tastes more like a Pale Ale. It isn't very bitter, and the malt bill is quite present.

My only guess is this beer was switched with their Pale Ale, since their Pale Ale was far more bitter and hoppy.

Not bad overall--just know it is a Pale Ale.

This was quite an enjoyable IPA from Basil T's.

It pours a semi-cloudy orange colour with a medium sized creamy/puffy head that leaves a decent amount of residue on the glass.

The aromas are somewhat earthy, but primlarily hoppy, with some sweetness but alot of floral and/or grassy hop notes detected.

The flavour is simliar to the aroma but with a bit more pop to it. The hop notes are still somewhat sweet and grassy, but a bit of pine comes out as well. Earthy notes aren't as prevalent but still apparent. There is a nice hop kick at the finish as well. Mouthfeel is spot on and quite refreshing.

Overall, this one is hoppy but not overhopped in any way, and is certainly very drinkable and enjoyable.
