Deep gold to copper with orange highlights and a murky complexion. There's a fingernail of off white covering most of the top. Light lacing. The aroma is of very resinous and tart citrus. It smells like orange juice to put it straightforward. The taste is very much in line with the aroma with the very sharply tart and bitter citrus hops and some light malt backbone keeps things from getting too out of hand. The mouth is moderately resinous, lightly chewy and sticky.

Very nice IPA. Lots of lace, although not a huge head, properly dense. Pretty deep amber color. Rich mouthfeel. Nice sparkle on the tongue. No hop "slam," but hoppy with the bitter tingle you want. A bit more bite than a Dogifish 60, for instance. The nose is sufficiently assertive, but nothing terribly alluring, a bit funky. Priced right. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed Lot # 3 IPA at Stained Glass Pub in Silver Spring, MD.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy orange color.

Overall: The aroma contains citrus and pine notes. Lot#3 IPA hits a nice middle ground between citrus and pine flavors. An initial hint of vague malt sweetness is washed away by a melon rind and grapefruit, before finishing with spicy pine notes. This might be one of the most complex IPAs I’ve ever had before, successfully pulling out various hop flavors. Excellent IPA!

Had this as a draft out of a Sixtel into a pint glass.

Look is a warm golden color. You can smell a nice aroma of hops and othersubtle flavors. Taste is smooth for an IPA, but nice and crisp. Overall a great beer.

English IPA and a 4 all the way down.

Appearance: Pours a hazy, coppery amber body with a frothy head that leaves lots of lace.

Smell: Trip around the horn. Dank, cedar, ballast, bilge, salty and then... caramel malts with resinous, piney hops.

Taste: I found this beer's caramel backbone could stand up with complex flavors - a lot going on - resinous, piney hops, along with salt, wood, cedar. But more malt than not as in EIPA.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A nicely balanced IPA; one of the best EIPA?

Copper colored brew with a white head. Fruity and sweet caramel aromas mix with scents of pine. The taste is nicely sweet with some mango and caramel followed by a nice piney bitterness. There is an aftertaste that reminds me of dried apricots. This is a really nice IPA with a little more sweetness and body than I would expect but it works well.
