On tap at Uncle Billys. Pours a rich glowing orange/amber color with a smallish white head. Smell is fruity, sweet and aromatic hops with notes of apricot. Smell is somewhat subtle compared to the intense hop flavor. Crisp, shart bitterness with pleasant notes of earthy, citrusy, and fruity hops. Somewhat of an earthy, grassy hop finish to it. Rich, mouthfeel with moderate carbonation.
Not my favorite IPA of theirs, but with this high of a score still, it's a compliment. Very solid beer.

UB's seems to be rotating through their IPA recipes pretty frequently- this one was on tap late January '08; One of the guys working said they used Fuggles and Nugget in this one.

Amber color with a golden tinge, kinda cloudy with a nice soft foam 2+ finger head that settles to a nice full layer of covering and sticks around leaving some lace.

Smells like a more aggressively hopped English style IPA- sweet and malty with fruity esters and a spicy herbal hop aroma stands out. Deep woodsiness, some citrus (orange) and some alcohol.

Some slightly roasty caramel and toffee notes balanced by dry herbal/woodsy spiciness. Pretty mild IPA, reminds me of an English Bitter with pumped-up hops. There is a good dry bittering finish that lets you know youre drinking an IPA, but the best thing about this beer is its ultra smooth carbonation and high drinkability.
