COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true English Indian Pale Ale. Our Raj IPA is created with a medium body and finishes dry and bitter possibly even more so than your Uncle Sal after you broke his window when you were eleven. Our English IPA has an intense hop flavor and high hop bitterness. The lofty hop level was originally required so the ale would stay preserved and survive the voyage around Africa during the English occupation of India in the 18th century.

Draft - copper body with a beige head. I get a bunch of vinegar in the nose. Quite a bit of malt and some hops, but mostly vinegar. The same in the flavor. Hopefully this is just a bad batch. It reminded me of coloring Easter eggs as a kid. Nice memory, but not what Im after in an IPA. Again, Im hoping this is just a bad batch because this effort was a drainpour.

Draft. No notes, going from memory. Has a great hop profile and a decent amount of bitterness. This seems to be the beer I get each time I go to watch a Viking game or grab lunch. I will take notes next time. As it sits, I have no complaints about this well done IPA.

tap @ brewery. very floral fruitty nose that reminded me of "paradise iced tea". flavor is quite the same...tropical fruit and citrus. this wasnt overly hoppy and actually well balanced for an IPA.

Tap. Golden color, bitter IPA. Not a huge fan. Something different than the norm.

this had a peach tea hoppiness to it that seemed a bit fake. not bad had more bitterness than the hopknot which was good but this beer just doesnt quite come together.

Nothing special, just a typical IPA. A medium body with a decent bitterness. Quaffable.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - OCT 5, 2006
On tap at Four Peaks - Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. Has a light citrus hop and caramel malt aroma and flavor. Medium body. I was very disappointed with this beer. There just wasnt much there. Worth a try, I guess.

bager (2121) - Copenhagen N, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2006
On tap. Clear golden coloured with a small head. Feels a bit too sharp. Hoppy and piny and a bit dry. Could be more wellbalanced.

Ratman197 (10192) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 30, 2006
On tap @ Four Peaks poured a clear copper with a creamy lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and a hint of pine. Palate was light bodied and dry. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and light pine with a smooth dry bitter finish.

Standard IPA. Nothing about this beer excites me enough to try it again. A little too thin for an IPA.
