Worst excuse for an IPA I've ever had, besides my own home brewed IPA. I have told many a bartender not to have this beer on tap because it sucks!

on draft, in a shaker pint glass

dark amber colored, white head. mild earthy hop aroma - wood, grass, herbal. not very bitter, or flavorful. definitely leans English, not American IPA.

Taste nothing like an IPA. Some sort of disguised lager...

The Davidson IPA was my least favorite of their beers I drank this weekend. It's more like a sweet American pale, not quite hoppy enough, and definitely not as dry as I like them to be. It looks fine, frothy but thin white head on a clean looking brassy golden beer with good carbonation. It smells more malt driven than the style really allows for, and the grassy vegetal hops lack balancing bitterness. The beer us fresh though, and not detectably flawed, I just think the recipe us overly safe and lack ambition and definition, but I still happily drank a number if these in one go. The sweetness gets a little filling, but the beer isn't bad, just forgettable.
