From notes made this summer.

Consumed on-tap at the brewpub, which is pretty much the only place you are going to find BiPlane beers.

Poured a slightly dark amber color, with a bone white head that left little lace.

Piney and a little bit citrusy in the nose. There was a mild, bready maltiness present as well. Smelled like a serviceable IPA wthout sticking out from the crowd.

Taste was very similar to the nose. It wasn't a massive, palate wrecking kind of IPA, but it delivered hop flavor all the same. Kind of a session IPA - I felt I could have had several of them if I hadn't wanted to move on and try other things (and I still had Selkirk Abbey to visit).

Medium bodied, with a slightly resiny mouthfeel that was pretty much the same as a lot of IPAs I've had.

To recap, this was a decent, relatively easy drinking IPA that checked the appropriate boxes without really standing out from other standard IPAs. I don't remember what the abv was, but I doubt it was more than 6%. If you like IPAs and are visiting the BiPlane brewpub, you can order this without fear, but don't expect to be swept off your feet, either.
