I am not a huge fan of IPAs. Some I really like, some I really don't. This was one I didn't like.

This is my first review of an Ipswich brew. The color is a caramel-copper, not bad. The mouthfeel is very soft and heavy. The taste isn't super heavy on the hops, but has a little citrus to it. Above average IPA, but not as crisp as I'd like, maybe a bit overrated.
