On tap at The Good Life in Massapequa... Medium gold color with a finger of ivory foam... Remarkably unremarkable beer - had some grain and fruit impressions, maybe muted citrus among them, and a little bit of earthy pine... Medium body felt a bit tacky and sluggish? I'm a finisher, but I left half of this in the glass.

On a bit of an IPA ride lately I brought this home as part of a pick six and was eager to give this one a try. Poured a medium/dark opaque orange with a nice white head but the head didn't last. Had a nice smell but not the hoppy smell that most IPA's have. Just a average earthy smell could not pick up any citrus at all. Taste was nothing special. Slight bitterness with a dry almost metallic finish. Feel was not unpleasant but far from what I was hoping for. The fuggle hop certainly is not what Im used to in an IPA . Overall I was not real impressed but again it was not what I have been used to in an IPA.I haven't tried a lot of English IPA's so maybe my rating is a little harsh. Not bad but not my favorite.

A very, very average IPA. It pours a hazy copper with a slim head. The scent is subtle hints of earth. The taste is lacking in hop presence a little for an IPA. Overall it's an average beer - nothing too fancy.

Darker yellow, 1/3" white head. Gotta love freshness dates. Aroma was whoof, dog shit and butter diaectyl like notes, even if not huge.

Taste was mild in every regard, hops, malt, d infection, earthiness. Not impressed.
