COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hop loverís delight, this American India Pale Ale is brewed with over 1.5 lbs. of hops per barrel. As with all IPAs, this beer is higher in alcohol, hop aroma and bitterness than regular pale ales, and you donít have to sail to India to enjoy it.

JulienHuxley (3852) - Trois-RiviŤres, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Slightly hazy amber pour with thin lacy white head. Aroma is hoppy, piney, leafy hop, light caramel. Taste is bitter, piney old school, quite bitter, malty notes. Palate is med bodied, good carbonation. Decent.

kathouse (1188) - Nevada, USA - FEB 22, 2015
A clear, medium amber with a thin head. Hop aroma is typical citrus with some pine notes. Body is fairly light. Slightly bitter but lacks real hop flavor to make this any thing but ordinary.

cheap (4423) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Listed as Dye House. Slightly darker than pale lager. Clear. Friendly fruity aroma, quite attractive to the nose. Smells much better than so many of those BO IPAs. Astringent sharp initial killer taste. Long bitter finish, lasting fer ever. Not into IPAs but this is onstyle BS.

berkshirejohn (4954) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
On tap at a Beer Works outpet at Boston Logan Airport. Colden amber with a thin white head; piney hop aroma; dry, piney hops taste with some lingering bitter orange marmalade and a very dry finish. A rather good IPA that ticks all the boxes for me.

rjplumer (588) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Sweet citrus floral hop aroma. Orange amber clear color with a half inch foam topping. Bitter with a citrus twang with a hint of apple. Itís a good IPA but seems a bit plain.

beeroclockrock (1) - boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 29, 2014 does not count
This ipa itís pretty straightforward. Nothing to write home about. Very drinkable. A little lacking on the aroma department.

Cybercat (3770) - Georgia, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a thin eggshell head. Greenwood hops dominate the aroma but let through a waft of malt. Flavor is seriously hoppy, evergreen and rather bitter, with malty and fruity underpinnings.livey, sassy mouthfeel is fairly firm; you can feel it all the way down. Hop to this Back Bay!

Leighton (13189) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2014
Bottle at home in Salisbury, CT. Noted at 6.8%. Pours clear gold with a fine, creamy white head. The nose is all orange, grapefruit, with hints of bread and dry caramel. Light to medium sweet with dry bread, faint caramel, earth, dirty pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly astringent to finish, with pine, some leaves, dry bread, orange. OK.

puboflyons (2362) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 3, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is a cloudy looking medium amber orange with a lasting cream colored head. Are there actually any hops in this? I get pale malts but virtually no hops for an IPA, especially an American one. The body is about medium. The hops are a little more forward in the taste but generally itís pale caramel malts.
