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.

Draft at Taphouse/Queensway. Super light golden amber beer, little head to speak of. Drinks with a really malty mash character up front. What little acidity there is in this leans towards the orange rind. Didn’t care for the balance in this myself. (#5063, 6/20/2013)

Can. Not too remarkable here. More burned malt than hops with this. Earthy aftertaste. Typical dry hopped presence. I would drink it while watching a game perhaps. Average. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can courtesy of Suttree. The pour is a lightly hazed golden orange with a ˝ inch tan head that falls quickly. The aroma is dried floral, light citrus fruit spice, and a fair amount of iced tea crystal malt type character. The taste is the malt to start, a bunch of tea like crystal malt, follows close behind by the dry floral notes, and a bit of a strange earth bitterness towards the back. As the beer warms, the earth bitterness turns quite peppery. The palate is medium bodied, soft carbonation, and a dry bitter lightly mineral finish. Thanks for sending this my way, Phil.

A subdued aroma of malt and earth from an amber pour with a small head. The flavor has a malty start with a nice bit of peppery hops. Decent clean and dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

burg326 (4566) - Florida, USA - APR 26, 2013
Poured an amber orange color from the 12 ounce can with aromas of light citrus, orange peel and some light resin. Flavors are the same, not overly citrusy, not overly bitter, middle of the road IPA.

obguthr (4535) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Honey and nut aroma. Amber, thin head. Orange peel flavor. Hoppy, with a surprisingly nuanced maltiness.

Garbageman (445) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - NOV 29, 2012
From tap. Poured a wonderful deep golden color. Small head and under carbonated but still good. Probably the tap. Great aroma and flavor with a malt to hop balance.
