4.33/5  rDev +19.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz brown bottle with a freshness date.

Color: Shiny brass, impressive head.

Smell: Spicy citric hop battles the buttery component, hops prevail. Biscuity malt, ripe fruit, citric rind.

Taste & Mouthfeel: Very smooth with a semi-dry medium body. Pungent hop, faint buttery diacetyl, grassy grain and light fruity alcoholic esters. Balanced and drinkable, on the dry side.

Overall: Brewers have a deft hand on bring this beer forward with lots of flavor, balance and keeping it very drinkable. English-style ales rarely get hyped though this one is a must.

Serving type: bottle

3.2/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Presentation: The Brooklyn Brewery style logo label with some waffling on about how it is their verison of an IPA.

Appearance: Golden-amber, with a thin white head.

Smell: Loads of spicy/mint hop aromas, with a casual sweetness on the backend.

Taste: Their hop use is applied more for flavour, rather than bittering. A very intruiging hop flavour to be found, and an over-puckering reaction that runs dry at the end. Very leafy, literally.

Notes: A bit overkill for this style. Makes you wonder what they think an IPA is. Seems like an over use of lower alpha hops.

3.68/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Nice english IPA of a hazy orange/ocher color that goes to a yellowish tone in the corners of the glass. Foam is ok.
Smell and taste are full of citrus, specially lemon, orange and grapefruit. Pear and apple tones also appear and that makes this beer quite juicy. Maltiness, bitterness and hoppines are at an ok level but could be higher, specially maltiness.
Body is ok too. Didn't enjoy the mouthfeel too much because of the acidity that comes in corners of the lips.
