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.

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 (5199) - 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.

Garbageman (486) - 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.

bubbleflubber (2134) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Brewgrass 2012 - pours orange with a white wispy head that reduces to a light cap. The nose is woody and spicy. The Flavors are quite spicy, dry atop bitters, with muddy citrus coming through. Medium bodied, but full of substance, this is complex and an easy quaff. Nice sessionista! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maxwelldeux (4289) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2012
This is a really interesting brew. Pours golden with a very small amount of head. Fairly little aroma to it, thought I can detect a slight hoppiness to it. The taste is extremely hoppy and bitter, though it finishes very clean and smooth.

PGHbeer77 (571) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2012
12 oz. Draft at Spouter Inn in Beaufort, NC. Decent IPA. Floral scent first followed by bitter near pine scent. Amber pour with a bubbly white head and little lacing. Medium bodied palate, silky texture with a crisp finish. Floral hop forward taste followed by intense bitter hop finish.

DalzAle (2018) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Can from barleypops! Dark amber pour, little carbonation and an aroma of malt and slight hops. Flavor is very caramel malt forward, bitters, toffee and finished dry/herbal. Decent IPA.
