COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No mere beverage could satisfy the thirst of the courageous and gallant soldiers who stood guard over the colonies of the British Empire. Their thirst could only be quenched by a full-bodied hearty Ale; an Ale balanced with rich flavorful hops. We are proud to offer our interpretation of this English style India Pale Ale for those who loong for the time when once your duty was complete, the taste of a fine Ale was reward enough for a job well done.

Pours our very foamy and not from user error. Light gold in color. A light grainy aroma is apparent and probably the best part of this beer, although there is limited hop aroma. A bit confused at this point by the IPA designation. Palate is thin and uninspiring. Reminds me a bit of a lawnmower beer with a little more body. Finishes with a slightly syrupy aftertaste. Drank this side by side with Boulder Beer Hazed & Infused which was by far the better beer.

Quite foamy (possibly due to transportation). Hazy. Quite hoppy. Grapefruit rind sits on palate for awhile. Good all around IPA, although seems to be more American than English. Thanks Erin for helping me knock out Jersey!

burg326 (4337) - Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Poured a gold color with aromas of light pine, citrus, light lemon and some acetone. Flavors follow suit a decent IPA, thanks John for giving this one to me.

KennyGalanif (42) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2014
pours a burnt lemon to light orange color with two fingers of head. the beer is hazy. smells of citrus, pine, earthy hops, with a light caramel aroma. the taste is crisp and refreshing, again, citrus and pine hop flavors, with a nice earthy quality to it. sweet malts with a slight bitterness. overall, this is almost a sessionable IPA, very drinkable, and crisp, but not really a great IPA.

brokensail (12362) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle from Ed, shared @ Bobby’s house. This is a gusher...that ain’t right. Golden pour with a big white head. Smells of celery, club soda, and green apple. Tart, oxidized, and overall not very good on the nose. Flavor is acidic/tart. Lots of celery and vegetal notes. Green apple, club soda, paper, and grass. Fairly bitter, too.

355mL. <<GUSHER WARNING>> Pours amber with big yellow foam. Nose is acetaldehyde, lemon verbana. Taste is minerally, sweet, celery, light bitterness. Riddled with brewing flaws.

kramer (5328) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2013
Tap. Pour a clear copper body with a one finger foamy beige head. The nose is more caramel malt than hops, what hops are there are a mix of citrus and floral notes. The flavor is rather harsh and bitter, a little too brash and bitter for my tastes. The sweet caramel malt at the base is there, but it just doesn’t stand up to the huge bitterness. Medium bodied and fairly heavy with fizzy carbonation. Tough for me to down a whole pint of this guy, and I like hoppy beers.

Low profile in flavour and taste. Amber color, clean and bright. I thing it's not the delightful IPA for everydays! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 24, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a golden orange color with a fluffy one inch white head. Light aroma of grassy and citrus notes. The initial flavor was lightly hopped with lemons, grapefruit and oranges. There was a sweet maltiness that finished with a dry grassy hopping. Lite and thin body with average carbonation.
