Harpoon IPA

Another one of those beers that I’ve had plenty of times but have never got around to reviewing. This one was bought at the Mellow Mushroom, Hilton Head Island, SC, USA.

Pour is a decent mid-orange with a pleasing amount of lace and head. Nice looking.

Plenty of citrus (lemon) flavors upfront with eveything wrapped in a dry, mild biting hop bitterness. Pretty one-dimensional in my opinion with a lack of malt presence strikingly evident. Like others have said, a soapy taste present, reminiscent of Courage Best Bitter! Not bad, and if you want a simple beer then it’s fine, but none too complex.

Dry finish and a lingering aftertaste.

No my favorite example by a distance, but at the same time a decent alternative to swill.
