COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Debatable about this one being APA or IPA in flavor profile and ABV/IBUs. Somewhat light-bodied for the style. Some bitterness is there, but bready malts as well. Solid, but not great.

Bottle from RobertDale - thanks. Pours a clear copper with a fluffy beige head. Aroma is mild with bready malts and modest floral hops. A little citrus and caramel come through in the taste with more floral hops. Medium intensity. Nice.

csaso (1294) - Missouri, USA - APR 4, 2012
Bottle - average size foamy head, medium copper color, nice piney hop aroma and flavor, fair malt backbone - not the strongest IPA in terms of hops, but not bad, pretty well balanced

12oz bottle poured into lager glass Aroma: bread,coffee, earthy Appearance: copper orangish red. clear and less than 1 finger head that faded quickly Taste: medium bitter, lightly sweet Palate: bitter finish. medium body, thin texture. lively carbonation Overall: Though this was an APA but turned out to be an IPA. way too much bitter for me. decent amount of flavor but most came from the bitterness.

Not to bad. Medium hop decent body, not compex on the flavor, could use some spicing up.

12 oz bottle. Pours golden with a small white froth. Aroma is sweet and Carmel with a noticeable piney and earthy hoppiness. Flavor starts sweet but quickly picks up the herbal piney hop character before a lightly bitter finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation.
