COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the 1700ís one crafty brewer discovered that a healthy dose of hops and an increased alcohol content perserved his ales during the long voyage to India (as depicted in our label) to quench the thirst of British troops. Today, we tip our hat to that historic innovation by brewing Coloradoís hoppiest pale ale. Avery IPA demands to be poured into your favorite glass to truly appreciate the citrusy, floral bouquet and the rich, malty finish. Brewed by hopheads for hopheads!

355 ml can from BG Birra, served in a nonic half pint glass. Classic sunrise orange, slightly hazy, with a small, creamy, off-white head. On the nose old and stale hops, caramel malts, tea leaves, soap. Slightly citric and resiny in the far background. Not better in the mouth, malty, astringent, unpleasent sticky caramel. Moderate bitterness, soapy aftertaste. Very soft carbonation for the style, medium body and creamy texture. I donít even know why Iím reviewing a 17 months old IPA from over the pond. Why would you even sell it ? Damn, I hate how almost nobody care about hoppy beer freshness in Italy. Hope to re-rate it properly in the future.

A very solid and well rounded IPA. Light pour, hoppy aroma. Smooth and sweet mouthfeel and middle. Hops at the finish. Moderate alcohol.

dinkle50 (1025) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Clear golden pour with a single finger head. Lots of lace. Aroma is a little flat and muted. This can isnít overly fresh. Light mouth. Taste is a little muted too. Kind of watery. Some citrus, but all in the background. A little bitterness at the end to round this out. Not a huge fan of this, but could have been an old can.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste citrus, pine, like a good ipa. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It poured a clear orange color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, orange, grass, biscuit and some earthy notes. The taste was of pine, grass, light grapefruit, orange and some biscuit. Nice.

A dry light beer with a faint citrus flavor. The hops are a little over the top compared to other IPAís.

Can - Slightly cloudy gold color. Typical dry hop flavor with more of a citrus flavor then others. On the palate the hops lingers a long while.

Nice and easy drinking. No foam. Taste stays for a while. Quite nice for an IPA :-)

Burk på Oliver Twist. Klar mörkgul vätska med fint skum. Doftar blommigt och av citrus. Bra balans mellan malten och humlen, kanske lite frän humlebeska om man ska vara kinkig. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours slightly hazy gold, nice two finger head with loads of lacing and retention. Aroma of grapefruit, wildflower and pine. Taste is perfectly balanced starting bitter with a nice sweet malt under belly. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes complex with notes of grapefruit, herbs, melon, spruce and resin. Dries nicely in the "bitter" end. This is an awesome IPA.
