COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bigger cousin of the English Pale, India Pale Ales were originally brewed with extra alcohol and lots of hops, both of which served to preserve the beer on the long voyage from England to the colony. Dry hopped with a distinct floral essence.

Shot (220) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Pours hazy copper with a beige head. Very good lacing. Aromas of sweet caramel malt with a hint of grapefruit. No discernible hop presence. Flavors are sweet grapefruit and caramel with a hint of pepper and a tingly hop burn. Sticky mouthfeel. This is an unusual IPA. Itís very malty--not much hoppiness. Itís enjoyable, but I think this should be categorized as a pale ale, not an IPA.

Bottle from the bald wizard. Many thanks for another Ohio tick. Pours Crimson Amber, thin off white head leaves no lacing. Minimal nose presempnt. Really have to pull out any sense of pine. Taste has mild bitterness, pine, toast. Medium body with an abrupt finish.

Draft at Cincinnati Beerfest. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have softer hops, grassy, some fruit character, toasted bready malts, mild, very little bitterness, not something I would do again.

Evolutionary (350) - Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle from giant eagle. Nose is hop stank with bit of caramel. Sudsy. Light feel and hop fullness. Not overpowering though. Wee bit of spice in there. Hardly any sweetness to balance. Very dry. Not great but ok.

Pours cloudy copper color with white head. Biscuty malt aroma with floral hop and herbal spiciness. Dry malt start with some fruitiness finishing with spicy herbal hop and floral hop.

Way over carbonated carbonation malt light hop flavor. Very disappointing It takes well over an hour to pour bitter grassiness

RRistow12 (394) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a nice dark orange that is a bit hazy. White head that fades quickly. Aroma is pretty sweet. Some floral notes but a lot of bready and biscuity notes. Taste is similar to the aroma. Very sweet for an IPA. I think it's too unbalanced on the malty side. Biscuits, caramel, toffee, maple syrup, floral taste. Not a bad beer but a less than average IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle from Luckyís Market. Copper orange pour with medium dirty white head. Aroma is big sweet caramel malt and brown sugar. Tastes are toasty, cereal, sweet, floral, grass, perfume. Not for me.
