COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style IPA is a full-flavored, full-bodied brew that has a big bold malt character and intense aromatics. It’s a well-balanced, golden-colored brew that has a crisp hop finish that doesn’t 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

An okay IPA. Orange-gold pour with a good head. Claims to be very hoppy, but doesn’t follow through. Its all there, just not that strong. Dry finish.

GeoDoc (34) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2006
Beautiful rich golden-orange color that almost glows. Aroma, taste, and mouthfeel are all a bit light, which is dissapointing after such an eyeful. Overall, not the best IPA, but a very drinkable beer.

12oz bottle. Orangy, citrus aroma. Clear and deep golden. Zesty, peppery. Smooth with a long crisp drying.

Pretty weak for an IPA compared to any of the ’big’ IPAs like Stone, Alesmith, Great Divide, Dogfish, etc. But still, not a bad IPA, not too expensive. I could see ’beer newbs’ breaking their teeth on this before stepping up to better beers.

Is this an IPA? Certainly much weaker and bitter than almost all ofther PNW IPAs. I found the flavor to be average and lacking any distinction and the it seems they went light on the hops. An IPA made for people who don’t like bitterness or hops in my opinion. Second rate.

Golden amber color. Orange and lemon aroma. Slightly grassy in the malt department. Insane hoppiness. For the money, theis is an outstanding IPA.This stuff rules.

droopy49 (97) - Lancaster, California, USA - FEB 25, 2006
12 oz bottle poured pale amber with a quickly diminishing white head. Mild hop aroma with some notes of pine and grass. Nice hop profile with a citrus flavor and a hint of malt. Crisp, dry finish, a decent IPA.

sloth (2594) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Small white head, fair retention with a thin clingy lace. Clear gold color. Light citrusy nose and a faint floweriness. Body is light. Hop flavors up front, citrusy, melons and pineapple with light malt flavors hiding in the background. Lightly sweet finish followed by a cute little hop bite. Thanks kaggie97!

Great IPA. From the aroma to the palate down to the belly. Well balanced. Great Hops. This is easily a go to pick from the cooler. Very enjoyable. Keep them coming.
