COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style IPA is a full-flavored, full-bodied brew that has a big bold malt character and intense aromatics. Itís a well-balanced, golden-colored brew that has a crisp hop finish that doesnít bite. With its palate cleansing finish, IPA is a perfect for highly spiced dishes with curry, ginger, garlic or cumin. This classic English style IPA is brewed with: 2-row Pale malt and is hopped with Challenger and East Kent Goldings hops

SHIG (3586) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Bottle: Poured a golden with white head. Aroma is a soft hoppy with hints of floral. Taste is sharp hops that make it pretty one dimensional with light metal finish.

Erzengel (2607) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 12, 2014
Dark golden in the glass, fresh hopped nose. The beer starts malty, nicely hopped with hints of citrus. The body is not too sweet and slightly malty. To the end there is a subtly bitterness that refreshes a bit, smooth citrus and kind of floral aroma.
Nice IPA, very crisp, but a bit too subtle and too less-floral, but I like the citrus-note of the hops. --> 12/11/12/12

Aroma is muted floral/earthy hops and a sweet malt. Pours pale copper with average white top. Flavor up front is sweet malt with an amazing floral hop flavor follwed by a mildly bitter pleasantly abrupt finish. Medium body, mild astringency in the back of the throat. Very good.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a golden yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies to a film and barely leaves any lacing. Streams of carbonation are seen rising. The smell is lightly hopped up front, still a nice dosage of caramel malts appear. The taste is mainly sweet, becomes slightly bitter, and has a sticky sweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate, she sits about a light to medium, comes across fairly sessionable, and has an adequately carbonated for the style and for me. Overall, this seems to be a bit sweeter than most AIPAs, could be borderline EIPA b/c of strong malty presence I say this is good for the style and good for me, I would have it again.

This is barely a decent IPA let alone a "ridiculously tasty" one as the bottle proclaims. This is one of the least hoppy IPAís Iíve had. Probably wouldnít drink again.

Bottle. Light copper with small white head. Aroma of floral hops and cereal. Medium body with strong hop bitterness, some malt notes, and a slight soapy finish.

@ Party Town / Florence KY Aroma is clean fresh malt and floral hops. Clear medium amber with full rim head and partial cover, one wide band of lace. Taste is traditional IPA, only, in this case, very well done. Somewhat sweet malt swells in the palate, adds floral (European) hops, with both sides joining for a clean finish. Not anything radical, but very well done. Recommended.

Doesnít have the big hops flavor that I crave in an IPA, but itís very easy-drinking. Itís more like a session pale ale. I could tear through a half dozen of these while doing yard work on a hot day. Watch it go down here: http://teamchug.com/full-sail-ipa-review/
