COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A medium-bodied ale that has been hopped more to the extreme. This beer has a copper hue and a noticeable floral aroma. Our I.P.A. is brewed in the tradition of 18th century English-style pale ales. Traditionally, these ales were brewed with extra hops, (a natural preservative) to allow the beer to endure its long journey from England to India, around the Cape of Good Hope.

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Draft as St. Louis Microfest - Poured brownish gold with a soapy white head. The aroma was quite assertive with caramel and piney hops. Some fairly sturdy malts start things out, then the hops kick in. There is woody and piney traits to the hops. Pretty dry bitterness that last a while. Pretty nice IPA.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 26, 2006
On tap at the 2006 Best of the Midwest Brewers’ Festival. Good aroma- flowery indeed. Poor head retention. Dark gold color. Tart A little bit bitter. Good malt content. A fairly good IPA, but nothing to rave about.

beerhandy (195) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 1, 2005
Draft @ $2.75 Hazy brownish orange off white head that faded rather quickly.Intense hop aroma it was PNW hops a’ plenty not so much citrus grapefruit as floral pineyness.Taste was very good plenty of malt backbone to balance the hop bitterness.Medium full body and light carbonation.I enjoyed it

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 17, 2005
1/2 Gallon strange looking growler. Copper. Dulled herbaceous and piney nose. Thin sweet caramel flavor with medicinal and herbaceous hops. English IPA’s really have to be good to impress me and this one wasn’t. I like the name though.

tjthresh (1865) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2005
UPDATED: APR 24, 2007 Cask. Spicy/Floral hop aroma. Amber with no sign of head due to cask conditioning. Malt sweetnes and hop bitterness are well balanced. Thin and oily. Draft version. Much more hop character. More aggresive. Just way better.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 23, 2005
On Tap in Lawrence: As much as I dislike this place, its more or less across the street from me and they do have decent beers. This particular beer was very hoppy. It had a minimal head and carbination. An amber/orange color. Has a bitter front and finish with a flash of sweet towards the end, kind of suprised by the complexity as these beers tend to be simple, imo. I liked it.

Braudog (5576) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Orange-copper with a nice sticky, laced head. Respectable citric hop nose and a fruity/well-balanced flavor with a bit of grassy tinge. Excellent.

Nuffield (3658) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Decent head, clinging on a light brown body. Murky aroma. Long-lasting bitterness, astringent and a hint metallic. Tried it first, and then with my spicy food (Black Bean Burger) and it didn’t blend well, surprisingly. (on tap at Lawrence, KS location)
