This flavorful beer is made in the style of the India Pale Ale Style originally manufactured in Great Britain for their colonies in India, but with an American twist. The harsh travel that the beer had to survive required a strong, hoppy beer. The Hops and the high level of alcohol helped buffer the beer through its long travels. Made with flavorful and full bodied Pale Ale malt combined with a touch of caravienne for color and carapils for body, the rich flavor of this beer is matched and enhanced by a very generous portion of Centennial and Cascade hops. The Cascades give this beer its distinctive floral aroma and a uniquely American character.
O.G. - 14.5/1058. Hops - 48.5 IBUs.

Poured from 12oz brown bottle into a nonic glass. Reddish amber colour with weak off-white foam and lots of chill haze. Caramel malt sweetness, predictable American C-hops. Light-medium body, average carbonation, grapefruity, hoppy aftertaste. True-to-style APA, not bad but nothing special nor memorable.

On tap at Shamrocks. Served a clear dark copper color with a nice head that fades slowly to good lacing. Aroma of citrus, malt sweetness with some caramel and grain. Taste of malt sweetness and caramel, citrus and grain. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, crisp and refreshing, with a decent balance. Nice beer for the style, goes down quite easy.

Pour is a amber with a small white head. Aroma is a decent sweet malt with a little lingering hop. Flavor is a decent mix of the malts and hops. Malts are sweet and caramel and the hops are earthy and bitter. An ok beer. I wish the hops were a little more forward as this is more about the malts.

Bottle, thanks Russ! Malty aroma with some hops. Pours amber colored with a moderate off white head and good lacing. Smooth and malty to start. Finishes dry with a good hoppy bite. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedEft (154) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Poured a pretty, deep copper with a perfect white head. Aroma is floral hops. Mouthfeel is slightly oily, but the taste is crisp floral notes at the front, the middle turns sweet -almost fruity - and finishes with a moderate bitter. This is pretty good stuff. Not quite an IPA to me, but good.

rosenbergh (6862) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2013
12 fl oz bottle. BB 4/4. (Macadoodles) Branson, MO.
Clear copper colour with a small off-white head. The aroma and the flavour are sweet caramel malt, mild dark hops, tea and moderate bitterness. Maybe a little bit too sweet for me. More like a Amber Ale than IPA.
