COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed just like the original from Burton upon Trent. This style calls for a high hop rate combined with an elevated alcohol content because it was brewed to survive the journey from England to Bombay as rations for British troops. Huge amounts of two row pale malt with an addition of a few specialty malts provides a nice mouth feel buried under copious additions of Columbus hops. This beer is big but finishes clean.

Not sure how this got deleted...

Sampled December 2007
Pours a clear rich, fully red tinged copper color that is topped by a thin pale tan head. The aroma is full of citrus hop notes that evoke thoughts of apricots, grapefruit, and a slight note of pine. The taste is smooth and creamy up front with a light malty sweetness. This quickly moves to a full on hop bouquet of citrusy American hops. I get notes of apricot, tangerine, candied orange peel, and a finish of bitter pine needles. This is a nice example of an IPA, and is certainly my favorite regular beer from this brewery. This beer is a great combination of creamy malt notes up front and citrusy, bitter hop notes from middle to end.

Caytinator (809) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Pint on tap. Definitely a "classic" IPA selection. Clear & copper-colored. Nice aroma, appetizing. Not a "west coast" IPA, but very bitter all the same...less floral hops and more bittering hops. Not the best I’ve had, but definitely nothing to turn one’s nose up at.

highibus (699) - Vail, Arizona, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Pours extremely clear with full white head. Aroma of spicy hops and a light sweetness. Flavor is some up front hops and light maltiness. Actually not very different than Stone IPA. I do like IPA’s with a little more maltiness, but the hops are nice on this one.
