COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

nick76 (4180) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2008
The aroma is nice with grass and citrus. There is also plenty of malt here. The appearance is copper gold with a large head. The flavor is nice. It’s bitter with plenty of malt to balance. The palate is thin. Overall not to shabby.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 21, 2008
12oz bottle courtesy of Degarth. It foams over as the cap is removed. Pours like a pale lager with clear gold with slight orange, a hint of haze and two finger off white head. The aroma seems mild and muted with grapefruit hop notes and some roasty semi sweet maltiness. The taste starts with muted grapefruit hops and sweet lightly roasted malts. Toward midway the hops grow to only a tepid bitterness. Toward the finish and into the after taste a mild roasty sweetness takes over creating an overall even finish.

Quake1028 (633) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 18, 2008
New state rating, courtesy of Degarth!! Yellow pour, looks a lot like lemonade. Sudsy, soapy looking white head, about two fingers thick. Nice retention but disappointing lacing. Soapy hops, muted malty notes, caramel and pine in the aroma. Flavor is similar, again feeling a bit soapy or dusty, doesn’t come off as super fresh, but that could just be the way the beer is. Medium bodied, super slick mouthfeel. Finish is again plagued with soapy dishwater notes, along with citrus hops, pine and some caramel. Just average.

Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Unclemattie: Poured a light amber color ale with a nice foamy head with some good retention and some lacing. Aroma of well balanced caramel malt notes with some dry hops. Taste is also a well balance mix between some caramel malt with some nice bitter hops which tends to be more dry then citrusy. Body is quite full with some great carbonation. This one was definitely better then expected.

12oz bottle. Poured a medium and cloudy orangish color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of floral hops, pine, and light citrus. Aromas on the softer side. Tastes of citrus, light caramel, and a trace of pine.

Poured a slightly hazed light copper color with a small off-white head. A moderate amount of floral and piny hops. Sweet biscuit malt underneath. Citrus flavor with a growing hop bitterness. Semi-dry and mild to moderately bitter.

opaque burnt orange, whispy beige head, touch of lace, carmel malt aroma with soft floral hops, lots of bitter hop flavor on top of slightly sweet carmel malt, the carmel malt character is nice but overshadowed by the bitter hops,

SpringsLicker (3121) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Thanks to Tronraner for sharing this one at the Tennessee Spring(ish) Tasting held in Knoxville, TN on 3/10/2007. Very clear medium yellow body with a white head. Very little aroma. Slightly bitter and one dimensional flavor. Thin bodied. Weak IPA.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy bronze with a nicely-lacing frothy off-white head. Aroma of citrusy west coast hops and a touch pale malt. Body starts slightly sweet with a fresh citric hoppiness and a drier, crisp bittersweet finish. Pretty true to style and very drinkable, a nice IPA.
