Not a bad selection when there is nothing else to choose from. BBC always put favorable offerings out in their profile. All in all a decent beer. Not worth chasing after, but decent.

In the world of IPA's this is decent. However, when the best part of a beer is the way it looks in a glass that is not a good thing. Smells and tastes of grapefruit, lemon, herbal notes and strong malt presence. Medium bodied and carbonated, light bitterness, crisp.

I got 3 cans of this in a Sam Adams IPA variety 12-pack on sale for $14.99. It’s a decent IPA, but nothing special. There are better IPAs in the same price range.

A: This poured a clear gold with some white head.
S: It smelled like lemon and herbal hops.
T: It tasted like lemon and herbal hops. It had a clean and bitter aftertaste.
M: It was thick with a little carbonation. Nice full body.
D: This was a nice IPA with clean and simple scent and taste. The body was solid and the finish was smooth, so it was easy to drink. Nothing special but perfectly fine brew.

To me this was a rather bland IPA. No single hop flavor jumped out at me. There were the usual grapefruit notes but pretty subtle. I am only recently coming back to IPA's after about a 20-year drought, so to impress me, an IPA should really show a bold hop flavor!
