While respectfully following the guidelines of this traditional British ale, we added a truly American twist. Using 100% U.S. grown hops throughout the brew, a complex variety of imported and domestic malts, and a truly unique British yeast, the result is a well balanced India Pale Ale. One that exemplifies the classic style, yet brings with it the flavors and aromas of our American hop innovations without forgetting the barley.

jgb9348 (5676) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 17, 2009
Light amber coloured body with a small soapy white head. Aroma of more malt than hops, some nuts and a bit of concord grapes. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavours up front leading into a bit of more hoppiness and a light sweetness that takes over. Aftertaste shows a lot of malt and leaves the palate a bit bittered by the hops, but not overly so. Overall, this beer is definitely more an APA than IPA, but it was still nice to try. Don’t expect too much, but try it if you can get it! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle at the Brickskeller in Washington D.C. on 29 December 2006.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2009
Bottle with Butters at First Cellar Reduction. Poured a cream color head with an over abundance of carbonation. Fruity nose. Flavor is mildly acidic and sour. I enjoyed the flavor and nose but the over carbonation ruined it for me.

Butters (4042) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2008
Clear golden yellow pour with big white head. Perfumy and floral hop nose. Flavor is nicely floral hop with some crystal malt to balance but not very well. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

sloth (2806) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Medium sized offwhite head, good retention and some scattered lace. Lightly hazy, copper hued ale. Nose is decent with a light spiceyness, light citrus and pine. Body is medium, lightly oily with a soft carbonation. Lightly sweet malts up front with a gentle hop backing, lightly fruity, citrus and some grassiness. Dry, lightly fruity finish. The best beer i had down south, limited hunting time also.

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2008
12 oz. bottle. Pours a brilliant clear gold with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left partial lace. Pleasant but mild aroma of malt and pine. The pine is more evident in the flavor than the aroma suggests with moderate bitterness at the finish. Another somewhat restrained east coast IPA.

RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - APR 30, 2008
Nice honey-colored pour with a quarter-inch white head. Citrusy hop nose. A little sharp in the flavor department at first, but the malt character comes out as it warms and balances the hop spiciness. A pleasant beer, but not overly earth shattering.

obguthr (5642) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - APR 26, 2008
Grapefruit, yeast, chestnut, and walnut nose. Dingy orange color, floaties, no head. Flavor is grapefruit, pine needle, and caramel malt. Grapefruit zest on the palate. Mildly refreshing, full of flavor.

nearbeer (4872) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 20, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 12 oz. Clear, burnt orange with a 3-finger, lasting head. Pleasant earthy citrus, peach, and resin aroma. Malt dominated front is slowly overtaken by the resiny hop bitterness, but still leaves some nice roasted grain flavors mixed with the bitter herb and resin hop in the aftertaste. Light medium-body is smooth and sessionable.

smells a bit soapy. taste a tad thin on both the malts and the hops for an IPA. still its a decent session IPA
