I’d give Three Taverns Craft Brewery A Night on Ponce IPA a D+. It tasted like an IPA, a lemony IPA, but not in a good way. The lemon flavor was a bit off and the hops were low in flavor. I didn’t find this to be that good, and one-sided. It needs to have more than just the lemon perhaps more hop flavors than lemon or tone down the lemon flavor. I don’t think it’s a good IPA. Please be kind, be safe and enjoy responsibly! down the lemon flavor. I don’t think it’s a good IPA. Please be kind, be safe and enjoy responsibly!
