Serving Type: 355 mL Bottle

L- Pours a hazy copper/orange topped by a thick white head. Great head retention and lots of thick lacing.

S- Floral hops and slightly sweet Grapefruit dominate the nose

T- Mostly follows the same format as the nose with the exception of a slightly sweet malt component. Mostly hop dominated flavour profile.

F- Medium bodied with low-moderate carbonation.

O- Lot #3 IPA is a simple interpretation of the American IPA and offers plenty of great flavour and aroma. Extremely easy drinking.

I’ve been drinking this beer for several years and love it. However, something changed when they went to cans a few months ago. The taste, color and clarity is inconsistent from the cans. It is lighter and cloudy now. I went to the Eastern Shore a few weeks ago and it was its old self over there. Not the case back in Baltimore. I’m hoping for a comeback.

Caramel to amber color. Hazy. Lasting head leaving blankets of lace.

Caramel aroma initially. Light flowery hop. Even lighter grapefruit.

The caramel malt flavor is semisweet and very brief. The hop comes in quickly and is straight up bitter. Richer than typical body but with a higher carbonation level as well. Medium length aftertaste despite the bittering level.

Tap

Pours slightly hazy amber golden. Firm eggshell head is fine and retains as a sudsy film.

Smells of fresh grapefruit, pine, honey and biscuit malts.

Flavor is of pine, honey, biscuit, and a dry woody finish.

Medium body, soft velvety carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Tasty and drinkable IPA with a good hop-malt balance. The hops overpower the malt and are on the dry side. Worth trying, could drink this easily again.

Picked up a six of these from a Giant in Virginia. This was the best IPA that I newly discovered on my trip last month, so I brought one back to Cali with me.

L: Unlike Perpetual IPA, this one actually looks like a quality beer. A thick layer of yeast sediment was settled on the bottom of the bottle. With a careful pour into a goblet, the burnt orange amber body came out almost completely clear. Carbonation is on the side of excessive, with a swirling cascade of rising bubbles steadily maintaining a thick, frothy head for longer than it took to drink. Lacing rivals GF West Coast IPA.

S: An exceptional hop/malt balance is clear from the aroma alone. Sweet oranges and mango at first, with a hint of yellow nectarine blending into caramel and nutmeg, finishing with zingy lemon rind, pepper and thyme.

T: A very satisfying but mellow sweetness makes this extremely easy to drink. Candied orange and a ridiculously creamy ghee presence are the first impressions, followed by a dry roast barley and ending in caramel, pepper and piney bitterness all holding out for a long, complex finish.

F: Extremely smooth and thick for the 6.8% ABV. Impressively persistent carbonation with a nice tangy bite in the middle. Resinous and sticky feel on the finish.

O: A delicious and well-balanced single IPA that drinks like a double. Not sure if I'll find it in California, but I'll have my eye out.

A perfect IPA with all the essentials. Great look with a robust head, smoky yellow color and plenty of lacing. Smell is citrus and some malt. Taste is well balanced with hops front then malt. Orange peel. Nice medium body with ample carbonation. I like it!
