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.

Hazy gold pour, huge head. The aroma is honey, earthy, citrus, soap. Medium bodied, very peculiar flavor profile - leather, earthy, funk, old dusty hops. The finish is mildly bitter. Not quite an IPA, more in the APA family, and it tastes of Brett.

matty (156) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear dark gold color with a thick slightly off-white head that hangs around for a while. Aroma is mostly pine hops with some caramel malt in the background. Taste is the same with a slight hop bitterness in the finish. Not bad.

Ok first review. ( if I could comment and not rate I would ) but this is a really unique beer in my eyes. No bs floral aromas, just hops and more hops. The aftertaste alone is enjoyable. This is a first at bat beer. Get one or four before you drink the cheap stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle @All My Vinyl Tasting, Edinburgh. Pours golden with an ever so s;light haze. Grapefruit/citrus fruits on the nose. Bitter and dry on the palate, all bitter, nothing else, one toned, ok if you like that sort of thing and i dont mind it but this just needs something to bring it out of its shell.

allmyvinyl (2182) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours hazy gold, thin white head. Aromas are all grapefruit. Taste is all bitterness. One-dimensional and a thin finish. OK.

Not really enjoying this too much. Funky smell, funky taste. Weird flavor profile. Prefer the lagers in the cricket hill profile.

McNeillR (979) - SCOTLAND - FEB 28, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 Pale, slight head, golden. Firm shuffle of cheap grapefruit. Over bittered, chewy hopness. Really one sided tang. Dry heaps of hops on the finish but nothing moreish about it.

Malty aroma. Hops are there for sure but malt dominates the aroma. Taste is malty with some hop balance. More piney hops, but sweet malty makes the hop profile hard to determine. Still lots of flavor and maybe not the best ipa, but very drinkable. Maybe a little sticky and sweet palate. Not a beer I would expect to have an overall score under 3?? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

WLG423 (201) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 6, 2014
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 (3245) - 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.
