    Pours out in a clear amber colour with a frothy white foam. Flat and rather lifeless aroma of earth, metal, grass and butter. Medium-bodied with notes of nuts, earth, metal and butter. Sharp and unclean mouthfeel. Earthy finish with undertones of metal and apricots. An unrefined and dull IPA from Shipyard.

    Bottled. Amber colour, small head. Aroma is fruity and flowery hops along with some hints of honey and grass. Also a bit malty. Flavour is fruits, some flowery and some berries. Also some earthyness. Pleasantly balanced and very drinkable, then again at the same time quite boring.

    Nice IPA. Amber and semitanslucent body. Not much of a head. Floral aroma. Nice balance of hops lends to a degree of complexity. The complement of hops os not overpowering. Not too bitter but every bit an Indian Pale Ale..
