COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed for the Buffalo Tap Room. India Pale Ales were originally made with high alcohol and hopping rates in order to survive the journey from England to India. The Buffalo Tap Room India Pale Ale is brewed in that tradition and would have survived the journey perfectly. This beer is deep gold in color and has a wonderful hop aroma and flavor. Although the beer has a big hop character, we add enough malt to give a wonderful balance between the hops, malt and alcohol. The beer has a long complex hop finish that lasts and lasts. The beer is deceivingly strong with an alcohol content of 6.0% Alcohol by Volume. Brewed with Pale Ale, Munich, Cara Vienna and Wheat Malt with Columbus and First Gold Hops.

Had this one on tap at the brewery after the Unfiltered Rye. Thankfully, this was much better, though I certainly wouldn’t call it great. Similar in color with the golden yellow, but very foamy head. Had a little tiny bit of hop bitterness, though I didn’t really get a ton from it. I’d drink it again if I were there.

On tap sample at Custom Brewcrafters in Honeoye Falls, NY. Clear deep gold with a small head and excellent lacing. Aroma is a mix of piney hops with a bit of grainy malt coming through. Not a strong aroma though. Piney hops dominate the taste but again some malt comes through. OK taste, but nothing special. Mouthfeel of medium body and carbonation. Other all a drinkable IPA. Average or below for IPAs, but better than the typical house-named brew IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2010 Autumn Festival of Ales. Alot of hops in the aroma. Flavor mostly of hops and not much malt. Sharp bite at end.

Draft at Buffalo Tap Room. Pours orange amber with a white head. Light floral hoppy aroma with a light sweetness. The flavor has a nice floral hoppy bitterness, a touch of citrus and some sweet malt. A pretty solid IPA.

(draft @ 2006 Autumn Festival of Ales - Honeoye Falls, NY) Bronze in color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is loaded with hops. Very flavorful and floral. Flavor is very hoppy and bitter with loads of hops that aren’t blended with the malts unlike the other IPA’s that are made by these guys. The hops and malts are definitely a separate entity and very tasty. Didn’t know that the alcohol was that high. Real nice IPA.

thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2004
A yellow colored beer with a disappearing white head. It has a weak aroma reminiscent of cascade hops. Like a true IPA should be, it is balanced well towards the hop side of the flavor spectrum. Has a strong piney, grapefruity hop flavor and a lingering bitterness. Definitely for the hop lovers among us. Not a world-beater of an IPA, but a good representative.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2004
Hazy yellow-amber. Thin finger of yellowish foam. Very light hop aroma of citrus & pine. Light feel w/ only the slightest stickiness. A relatively bland IPA, w/ some maltiness & some citrusy hops.

Nice color and aroma if you like hops. A little bit of a bitter aftertaste but all in all not a bad beer.
