look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

12 ounce bottle poured into a pint glass. Best By Date of 7/2/2017

A: Pours a copper orange with no head developed, looks flat, slight lacing.

A: Citrus peel, pine, slight sweet orange note with caramel malts in the finish.

T: Follows the nose with citrus peel and pine, low amount of bitterness in the middle, finish has lots of malty sweetness with slight notes of citrus.

M: Medium bodied with a dry finish, lacks carbonation.

O: A drinkable, smooth beer, however, the beer is flat. I did not expect this to be hoppy as it is an English IPA but it's very malty and sweet, I would have like it to have a little more hops.

A really nice IPA. More hops than anything, some grains. The bitterness and seeetness is balanced nicely. The taste is bold immediately, but balanced. You can't go wrong here.

Pours a lovely copper amber color. Has a potent citrus aroma with hints of pine. Classic IPA taste with leftover pine on the tongue. Moderately hoppy with a strong malt finish.

= A pretty well rounded IPA that is welcomed any time it's around in my book.

Pours a beautiful clear orange amber color with a full white frothy head that lasts. Smells mildly of citrus and bread. Taste is very malty for an IPA. Not at all what I was expecting. The feel was good but Overall I didn't want to finish the glass.

Poured from bottle best by 6/12. Smooth mouth feel with slight bite at end. Classic IPA taste with less bitter aftertaste. Hazy amber color. Good for multiple refills.

From my Tap a deep amber color, with a small white head. The smell could use more Hop aroma through late Hopping to hide some of the alcohol (it is 7.5% ABV). There is a bitter sweetness in the smell of this brew. The taste bitter with hops, grains and malts. This is a nice drinking IPA. Commodore Perry IPA has a real nice balance. There is nothing overpowering in this brew. The mouthfeel is bold with bitterness and a nice clean finish. Overall I'm giving Commodore Perry IPA a 4.5 out of 5.
