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 from the brewery. Mildly cloudy copper/brown color. Mild hoppy grapefruit nose. The flavor’s easy to define: IPA, water, cascade hops, water, and a touch of water. Mmmm, waterdown IPA. Finishes clean, super drinkable, doesn’t offer a Godamn thing.

WBF. Nice IPA. Not too outstanding but a good example of the style. Moderate hop profile, not super distinguishable hop varieties. More of a broad hoppy bitter flavor.

Pours light copper with long-lasting whitish head. The aroma is sweet grapefruit, light caramel, and some other citrus tones. The flavor is grapefruit and grain up front, but falls into a metallic finish. The aftertaste is dry and cannabis-like.

Growler courtesy of emacgee. Pours copper with a thin off white head. Smells of citrus, pine resin, caramel, roses. Tastes of sweet malt and pine with some underlying bitterness. Mouthfeel is a little watery but has some nice hoppiness. Chewy caramel finish with some lasting bitterness.
