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.

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.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear bright copper color with a white head, nice retention and lacing. Herbal and citrusy hops on the aroma along with a little bit of sweet malts and maybe even a tropical note. A bit of passionfruit comes through on the flavor to go with the orange/citrus from the hops, and a substantial caramel maltiness sits behind that. Medium-bodied with some hop resins on the palate. Now here we’ve finally got a decent beer from these guys. This one is not bad.

On tap at the Durham Bulls game - pours a light copper with a thin white head. The aroma is grapefruit, grass and caramel notes. Taste is slight grapefruit and some floral hops. Comes off more as an English Ale to me - but pretty tasty regardless of what you call it.

Growler poured into a Portsmouth tulip glass produced a two finger white head that faded fast to nothing on top of an amber colored brew. The brew was a little sweat in the nose with the yeast coming out as the dominate characteristic. There was a light hop note present as well but not as pronounced as most IPA’s. The flavor followed the nose; it was mostly sweet malts with a light hop bitter in the finish. It had a medium feel to it with good carbonation for coming out of a growler. The brew drank real well I sessioned the growler myself through out the course of a night. I enjoyed every drop and it went well with all the appetizers’ available. If I was at the brewery I would gladly do the same
