I come from the Berkshires and fondly recall having my first Steel Rail--this was actually my first craft beer. I say this in an effort to be as unbiased as possible.
A--yellowish orange with a white head
S--hops are there but need to sniff through the malt to get them
T--malty and sweet, very smooth for an APA (under today's standards anyway) with minimal hoppy bite
M--light, lots of carbonation
O--Its hard to drink this now because the memory of its greatness simply doesn't match. This is a very drinkable APA but man there just isn't much going on here. I'm a hop head though so perhaps I'm just missing the bite I've grown accustomed to? Any way, BBC Steel Rail has a place forever in my heart.

In a world stuffed with IPAs it is hard to stand out these days and I have to say that this IPA did not strike me as anything special.
