Poured on-tap at the bar in the Venetian. The beer is a deep and vibrant copper-brown color, with a nice, dense head. It has a lighter hops aroma in comparison with American IPAs. On initial tasting, the flavor of hops hits the back of the tongue, instead of front-tongue of most American IPAs. There is a very mild, but hoppy aftertaste, which is pleasant. Very smooth in the mouth. Another of Sin City's brews that warranted a growler fill on our way home.

Copper color pour, lots of sediment, almost no head, but when poured into a plastic cup, what can you do? No hop aroma. Just a bitter thing going on.

Taste, bitter, but not from hops, like a bitter plastic burnt corrosiveness, with tons of grittyness in the mouthfeel, like they just dumped some sand from the beach into the kettle. Its not just that it was an English IPA, it was just lacking, it didn't even have the mild sweetness hop thing going for it, I think they just classified it this way because it would allow for more cheapness. Its not like it doesn't seem that if any hops were used (a reasonable question) that they were probably high alpha acid types used in miniscule proportions simply to jack that bitterness up.

One of the worst IPA's I've ever had.

Pours a Amber/orange with minimal head. Nose is of light pine bark and light citrus. A little malty on first taste, a bit like a APA. Light pine and minimal light citrus on the back end. Medium body with a semi wet finish. It was okay
