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.

Really good I.P.A. One of the best (if not the best) 75th Street beers. Pleasant aroma, and nice look, not too bitter yet has a nice bite during the aftertaste. Good choice while here, and you’ll be tempted to get a growler to take home.

Definite hop aroma, overall sweet in the nose and flavor. Very dry palate and a sweet peach and pineapple flavor. More bitter than the 53 IBU would suggest... some sweet plum shows up in the finish.

Nut brown. Slightly chewy malt and bitter -- 52 IBUs. Very straightforward, tasted like one malt and one hop variety was used. Not too grapefruity or grassy, a good blend of both. Better than what I’d expected but if you are in Lawrence go to Free State instead.

Very light (flavor) for an IPA, lack of malt, balance - OK but nothing to get wild about. GABF 2002

Light copper body with eggshell white head. More pine than grapefruit aroma and flavor. Malt seems absent. Very mediocre beer.

Not one of my favorites because it had too much hops in it for me, I did enjoy it but I’m not a fan of really hoppy beers, if you are you’d like this one. Reminds me of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.

Not cask conditioned - tasted a bit like it may have been nitro’d. I know 75th St has an irish dry stout, and they may just resort to using nitro to push everything.... on to the review: Light amber with light head and good lacing. Nicely hoppy aroma with resiny, grassy and grapefruity notes. Flavor has a nice hop bite and is well balanced with a vaguely boring clean medium malt sweetness. Smooth mouthfeel, a bit flat. Overall: good, clean, and hoppy.

No surprises, but no real let-downs either. Also once again, this rating does not go for the cask-conditioned version. The cask version is a very tasty beer. All of the flavors stand on their own and the beer has definite stages it goes through, which makes for an intriguing drink. However, it has been a long time since I’ve seen the Cask IPA. Oh well. The ’regular’ version has a fairly resiny hop aroma, some caramel malt sweetness, and a medium body. It’s good, just not outstanding.
