An ale fashioned to survive the long voyage from England to India during the British colonization. Hops, hops, and more hops, this ale has an intense aroma and a long lingering finish. Drink as an appetizer on its own, or pair it with any hearty dish. A beer for the connoisseur, this is the Brewmaster’s choice. "Cheers!"

The fruity hop profile of this beer’s aroma is just dazzling -- it deserves a perfect ten. Watermelon, evergreen resin, clementine, rangpur... just wonderful. The taste is a perfect balance of fruity sweetness and bitter, and the finish has a lasting fruitiness. One of the best versions I’ve had of one of my favourite styles.

5/13/2010 11:53:15 AM Can from Whole Foods Hadley. Nice nose of hops, grapefruit and pine. Taste quite full-bodied of grapefruit and hops. Smooth, sweet. Not noticeable that it’s from a can. Another excellent craft brewer using cans. Enjoyable.

Tranquillity (1496) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2015
Dark red, big white head. The aroma is highly floral. The taste is malty at first, with caramel, with a slow transition into floral hoppyness at he end.

mathieuc (2352) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
Can from the SAQ Dépôt, because why the hell would we want to sell these as quick and as fresh as possible through some specialized beer stores? Canned on July 21st, 2015. Pours a clear copper with a small white head that leaves pretty good lacing. Nose is of melon, resin and fruits. Taste is lightly sweet and moderately bitter, offers light caramel and resinous hops. Body is medium, carbonation moderately high and mouthfeel a little sticky. Overall a really well made slightly oldschool IPA, wish I could sample this fresher!

tomer (2257) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - AUG 15, 2015
At a tasting, thanks, almost no head, light hazy deepish Orange color, aroma of flowers and citrus with a woody hint, light flowery aroma with a light maltiness in the back, grapefruit bitterness which is a bit too strong unbalancing the beer a bit. Still very nice.

mR_fr0g (6036) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle shared at Leighton’s place. Many thanks to Paul for this one. Orange / light amber coloured pour with a halo of white head. Aroma is sweet, orange, floral, light pine needle hop, bit weird on the nose. Flavour is composed of light caramel, biscuit, chewy malts with orange rind and pine. Palate is sticky, hop resin, moderate carbonation. Decent ipa.

Taste comprises pine needle, grapefruit, juicy hops, lemon rind. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi aggressive hop spattering in the close. Decent IPA.
