Gee, you'd think England's oldest brewery could have turned out a perfect product by now. Actually, this IPA is probably another victim of the Atlantic Ocean sundrome in beer. It wasn't all that bad, but I was expecting something better. This might also lend credibility to the arguement that clear bottles aid in deterioration of beer. Warning, if your spouse/partner isn't a beer fan: My wife could smell the hops in this from across the room.
