Picked up a 22oz bottle, but then again all I see BBC beers in are 22oz bottles. Poured into a Guinness pint glass. The color is a very light copper. Leaves a head that's about a finger thick and has pretty good retention. A different smell for an IPA...more malty than hoppy. Has some hint of citrus as well. The hops are there, but they are hidden a bit by the sweet malt. The taste is well balanced, but as with the aroma, it's more malt than hops. It's a sweet taste (caramel?), and a noticable bitterness to it. It leaves a fair amount of stickiness in the mouth. Light to medium bodied and it drinks easy. I've had this before and I will have it again.

Reviewing live so this will be short. No big citrus or floral hop nose on this. There are hops but this has a superb malt bill. This is among the maltreat IPAs I've had and I'm loving it. No extreme bitterness, just smooth caramel malt with enough hops to balance it. An old fashioned IPA. Wife has a Stone IPA and unlike this better.
Serving type: on-tap

12. oz. can poured into a tulip.
Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy light orange. Kind of a marmalade color. Nice one-and-a-half-inch white head. Lacing minimal.
Aroma: Smells of pine, hops, malt, grapefruit, and lemon.
Taste: The taste follows the nose, and it's pretty good. It's just over the APA/IPA line, with moderate alcohol and high-but-not-super-high bitterness. Nice malty backbone.
Mouthfeel: The beer has an appealing sessionable quality - not an intimidating beer, but a complex and quaffable one.
Overall: Fun sessiony IPA from this western Mass. brewer. The term "session IPA" makes a lot of folks groan, but this is a very well executed one. A good everyday beer and a good companion for any meal.
