COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This hoppy IPA is high in alcohol and except for the American hop aroma, is very British in style. This style was originally developed to survive the voyage from England around the Cape of Good Hope and back North to India to keep the British troops happy.

brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - FEB 2, 2016
​On tap @ Downtown Joes. Clear orange beer with a sticky white head. Pretty strong orange hop character and some light pine. There’s a good bit of grass, too. Some caramel malt sweetness and bread. There’s a strong malt character to it and a fair amount of sweetness. Fine in terms of the hop profile...good orange peel and flesh. A little on the woody side on the finish.

Draught at Downtown Joe’s Napa. Light hazy light amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, grain, bread and biscuit. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of citrus, tangerine and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Bit bland but not too offensive. Some hop character as well.

Draft at source. A moderate to strong cascade hop aroma with a bit of crackery malt. Taste is moderately bitter with a peppery note. Just weird.

[US West Coast Trip 2013] Bärnstensfärgad. Frukt, grapefrukt, humle. Rätt kraftfulla attribut. Väldigt välbalanserad, en riktigt bra och fyllig IPA helt enkelt!

Nice IPA, I had a pint at the pub in Napa. Possibly not quite as good as the double IPA they also had.
