COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our India Pale Ale is brewed with an aggressive hop profile derived from Amarillo and Simcoe hops. A blend of Crystal malts creates the backbone which supports the hop character without diminishing it.

It’s been far too long since I had an IPA, so my rating may be a little skewed. Pours a light clear amber. Aroma of cotton candy (very sweet malts) and citrusy hops. The flavour is mild... too mild. A bit of sweetness from the malt and a disappointingly small bitter kick from the hops. Pine and oak. Dry finish with a short lived aftertaste. Not bad, not great... but it’s an IPA, so yum.

Pours golden with a big head that stays. Aroma is malty and floral. The flavor is pretty well balanced however not very complex and the body is thin. Not delicious, slightly enjoyable.

Decent. Interestingly bitter hop flavor. Not much complexity. Slightly watery and bitter finish that lingers. Very drinkable.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - DEC 21, 2007
(Bottle) Pours a light copper color with a white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste includes a lot of sweet malt, much like their APA. The hop presence is there however, and seems to balance with the malt. Somewhat astringent finish. Ehhh, it’s OK.

Smell is sweet. Appearance is light amber with thin diminishing head. no lacing. Flavor is bland, mildy sweet. Mouthfeel is watery and dry. Overall, not that great.

HogTownHarry (6201) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2007
Bottle (12oz). Clear amber, large foamy beige lasting head. Light aroma - resin/funky dry hops, hint of leafy malt. The taste is restrained, slightly soapy, hint of pine and citrus, light juicy malt backing; weak body, light astringent bite, not much carbonation, quick finish, clean linger. Drinkable, not really very hoppy though.

thegreenrooster (3533) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Pour is a amber with a soapy white head. Aroma is deffinatly hoppy with some mild malts. Flavor is just not hoppy enough to get me excitied about this. More of the crystal malts come out then the hops used. Deffinatly not a hop bomb but it was a cheap six at only $4.99.

BelgianBeerGal (3384) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2007
Bottle poured into pint glass. Dark amber colour with a tall, creamy off-white head. Definitely hops in the aroma and flavour but rather mild. No real characteristic to the bitterness, just bitter. Okay IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 29, 2008 Pours a dark amber with a white head. Has a strong hoppy aroma. Also has a strong hoppy taste. For me Indian Pale Ales have a very narrow tast difference range so it is very similar to a sweetwater or Dogfishhead IPA. I drank this out of a shaker.

A thick off white head tops this amber brew. Mouthfeel is soft with a nutty malt underbelly. Aroma is rather subdued for an IPA, but the hops are there, ending in a long mildly bitter finish. While certainly on the mellower side of IPA, this is a well-balanced version with easy drinking appeal.
