COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally, this intensely hopped ale was brewed in the 18th century to survive the long sea journey from the cooler breweries in England, around the Cape of Africa to India where the temperatures were too warm to brew. This beer has a unique floral aroma from the generous addition of Cascade hops to the fermenter in a procedure known as dry hopping.

pinkzambia (1436) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 12, 2011
Tap @ Doubletree - Durham, NC: Cloudy, unclear copper color with no head. Aroma of mild hops and eggs. The flavor is weak for an IPA. Hairspray and way to malty for an IPA especially in the aftertaste. Ok, but nothing special.

Poured on tap into a shaker at the Mediterranean Cafe in Chapel Hill, NC. Pale yellow orange beneath a one-finger head, this beer gave off a decent hop aroma but tasted and drank more like a nice pale ale. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course, but I don’t really look for effervescence and sessionability in an ipa the same way I would in an apa. Tasty enough, but certainly nothing special.
