look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served in a glass at The '6 House Pub in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, bright golden with foamy white head, strong retention and some lacing.
S: Aromas of peach, mango, and grapefruit form a fruity melange.
T: Tastes derived largely from grapefruit, peach, and pine. Light, refreshing bitterness.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate effervescence.
O: A well made, but not necessarily extraordinary ECIPA.

Pours with a dense, white fluffy head that dissipates slowly, hazy with a few floaties visible in the murkiness. Aroma is grainy, fairly subtle really. Citrusy in flavor with hints of melon and berry, but not overwhelming, Pleasant bitterness on the back of the tongue. I may be wrong, but I think what they were going for here is a take on a NEIPA. Overall, a pretty good brew for a reasonable price and rather different than what I've come to expect from Berkshire Brewing. I got it on sale @15.99 a 12 pack, I'd buy it again at this price point, I enjoyed it.

hazy, with a fruity citrusy taste...very good, especially for the price point...a little hoppier and it would be even better

12 oz can, with "BBD 6/26,18" stamped on the bottom.....better then nothing but this date doesn't really tell how fresh the beer is....

Pours out with a medium haze, leaving respectable looking low sheeting and strands of stickage.

Resiny hop nose

More hop resins on the palate, along with some fruit notes, mostly i get grapefruit along with some assorted tropical twinges......better then decent and how nice is to see Berkshire brewery brew a new and different beer!

BERKSHIRE INHOPNITO IPA 8/11/17

Although it is rather sad to see venerable Berkshire bending to the trends by pulling back on its wonderful English-style IPA Lost Sailor by cropping it from its 12 oz. can lineup and replacing it with this new entry billed as an "American IPA," and the can art of a sort of spy with hop cone beard is a bit sophomoric for them, it is good to see them innovating and responding to market demand with good effort.

Poured from the 12 oz. can into a Lawson's stemmed tulip. No visible canning date.

a; Cloudy orange with an inch thick white head which receded to even surface foam and dense lacing. Exceptional look for a session IPA.

s: Light fruit leaning to citrus, fading later.

t: White grape notes briefly appear in an otherwise balanced flavor of light fruit and biscuit. Any caramel malt notes seem buried by the hop profile.

m: Medium, good body and carbonation tingle.

o: A good solid sessionable American IPA as advertised. Good value for locals in the $8-9 range for six, although not outstanding enough to top some of the others which have come available in the past year. Personally still think it was a mistake to drop Lost Sailor from the Berkshire canning roster, because it's been a personal favorite for years and the twelve ounce can was both convenient and reasonably priced, but this is certainly an ok replacement, and I'm sure the old bomber version of LS will still find buyers...like me.

Interesting flavor. I won't drink this alot, but its unusual flavor is worth a taste or two. Not bitter. Almost a cantelope taste behind the malt.

Not sure if this is still a one-off as I just bought a fresh can.

Slight haze to a deep yellow body with a four finger head, which had excellent surface tension as it rose half an inch over the top of the glass without sliding down the side of the glass.

Aroma was white pine, pineapples, melon rind, and a blend of citrus notes.

Taste was mostly pine and an almost flat bitterness. Not an impressive beer from Berkshire this time. Hints of biscuit malt.

Mouthfeel was a little less carbonated than the head would predict.

Overall what I would call an average beer. Even if this is actually now a rotating offering, I will not get this one again.

12oz. can served in a tulip nonic. Pours a hazy, dull orange with a tight, one inch, cream-colored head. Nose expresses notes of cantaloupe, hints of tangerine and biscuit malt. Taste follows nose - cantaloupe dominates up front followed by a biscuit malt backbone and a trace of earthy/herbal notes towards the back. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body but closer to light with a pleasant, even carbonation and just a kiss of acidity. Overall, solid but not spectacular. Might make a nice cask offering, especially with some dry-hopping.

Best by 11/03/17, that's all nice and all, but i have not idea how old it actually is.

Pours a nice fluffy 1+ finger head that fades at a med to slower pace, some soapy lacing, very murky darker tan orange almost woody color.

Nose is on the lighter side, a little hop profile, hard to really tell what it is, a bit of a spicy and spruce pine, fruity, hint of melon, and a unique berry aroma, melon rind, a touch of citrus, little doughy malt, a clear yeasty aroma as well.

Taste brings fruity flavors, melon and berry fruit surprisingly, I think some fun esters as I get banana and a little pear or some tree fruit, hard to tell, generic fruit, some floral hop notes and a touch of a spruce tip, mild cracker doughy malts in the background, toasted, lots of creamy oats and hint of caramel malt, a generic hoppy flavor. Dry finish, fair bitterness lingering, a bit more generic fruity hops, and spicy hop.

Mouth is med bod, pretty creamy and fluffy with fluffy carbonation.

Overall not bad, an interesting and different take on IPA, some middle ground of East and West and Midwest, nothing really makes this a stand out though as it's fairly middle of the road, but interesting ester profile if that's what it is, but could be some weird hops as well.
