COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seasonal IPA Series This I.P.A. recalls ships stocked with beer for the military saling from England along longitude 4 20 to the far-flung outposts of the British Empire. Generous amounts of imported British malts and hops provide an exquisite balance to Calcutta 420 while "Roundiní the Horn."

Looks good, nice pour, thick sticky head. Whatís with the flavor though? Burnt grass, broccoli, some hints of used ashtray. Sickly sweet and extra heavy body. Iíll drink it but never buy it again.

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2007
This is pretty lightweight for any style IPA, seeming more like an EPA. The aroma is pretty tame and mild, some caramel and grains coupled with a floral/herbal hopping. Medium to light in body, it has sweet grainy malts in the flavor with a soft bitterness that does grow somewhat during the drinking, but not to the level of an IPA. Sessionable enough.

One of the weaker and uninspired IPAís I have tasted. I agree with the other review, I taste asparagus and grass. I would not buy this again.

Hazy orange-amber body under a foamy light tan head. Asparagus, white pepper, wet grassy hay and caramel malt in the aroma. Nasty flavor. The wet hay comes to the forefront with not much else coming though. This is the big wet bale on the wagon smacking you in the tongue. Dry yet rich mouthfeel with that bitter wet hay thing coating the tongue. I donít think this bottle is bad, the beer is just very misguided.

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a strange brown colored body with a white head. The aroma is like wet, partially rotting stale hay. The flavor is stale wet hay and ickyness. Bad lingering palate. Wish it woulda been better.

MIBRomeo (2537) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2006
light off orange color w/ a big fluffy off white head w/ some decent lacing. smell si bad.. no more to be said. Palate is fizzy and mildly offensive. Flavor is just not good fizzes on my tongue to distract me from the rotten hay and mud flavor covered in hops to distract you from the bad. NO! Just pour it out.

Whatever. This one is a poser. It is prentending to be rich but this looks and taste like a burnished penny. A more or less sucky beer.

This was not good! I got it at the bargain table at the local BevMo, and I know why. Word must have gotten round that this beer sucked! If you are looking for an IPA with noticable hops, do not drink this. Thank You.

Everything El_Borracho said...plus a strange hint of floral mustiness in the background. An English style IPA from a brewer in the heart of the So-Cal American Imperial IPA birthplace? Why?
