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.

Pours amber with a whiteish head. Nice hoppy aroma. Medium body with creamy carbonation. Flavor is floral,fruit hop over mild roast malt. It is quite bitter. The bitter mellows to melifluous florality in the finish.

On tap at the brewpub in Napa. Very good brewpub IPA. Mediuim orange pour, fresh sprucey aroma. Flavor has the requisite citrusy hop flavor with a surprise vanilla and butterscotch finish. Thick, creamy mouthfeel. Probably the best of the bunch at Downtown Joe’s.
