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

12 oz bottle. Aromas were lacking as well as the flavor. Bitter flavor, but I don’t think it was hoppy bitterness. Nice looking bottle though.

Bottle poured a nice gold amber with a smallish head. Light citrus, hops aroma . Flavor is a little bitter, citrus with a bland bitter finish. Not the best IPA I’ve ever had.

Courtesy of Pailhead. Very bland overall, almost no aroma to speak of with only a slight hop bitterness in the finish.

On draught at Falling Rock, 9/30/2005. Served in a shaker, it has a light peach-fuzz yellow color to it, with a smattering of white head atop, not very abundant and recedes to a ring fairly quickly. Beer is clear, with moderate sized bubbles rising. Aroma has a nice, soft yellow fruits and light pale malt sugariness. Light tangerines, nectarines, peaches and fresh apricot juice, with an aromatic floral nature. Overall, not a tremendously strong aroma. Flavor continues with the fruit, adding more tangerines and nectarines, with a medium to medium-light body, gentle and supportive of the moderate hops. A moderate carbonation, lively, touch watery texture confirm that this is indeed a simple, session ipa. Not too dry or too bland, however, the hops are refreshing and present enough to satisfy me.

bottle. rubber aroma. dark yellow see through pour with lively bubbles and a fluffy pillow of a white head. the aroma is not pleasant. kind of a tree bark rubber/ eraser smell to it. hot pepper taste that bites. citrus hop flavor comes through with a sweet lemon finish with caramel lingering long after the spice dies down. once i adjust to the spice this isn’t bad, but it takes some getting used to.

Can smell the spicy notes from the start. Copper color body with decent head. Flavor of the hops and spicy tones. Man fell like I got some pepper on the palate. Better go get a palate cleaner. This would probly go good with a steak on the grill

Thanks to wohlfs for hooking a beer-loving brother up with some brews from the Upper West Side!

Pours a sparkling copper body and a bountiful and resilient cream hued foam. The aroma is piney and spicy with hops. Flavor brings some caramel yet it is somewhat overrun by a fairly acidic and astringent metallic hoppyness… I was expecting far more form this IPA. The finish is crisp and DRY…. bitter with the acidity and rendering of grapefruit peels!
Definitely not my favorite of IPA’s!

This was a good sitting around drinking beer. I liked the rich flavor which caught me by surprise. The overall flavor was a good clean crispness. I did feel there was a hop flavor missing in an IPA I should have a strong finish in my mouth. I would have another if I was thirsty and it was offered.

This is rather light in aroma and appearance. This is definitely different from many IPAs I’ve had. Hops are really only found in the end, with a light lager/amber ale hint in the body. A nice finish, but mostly an under-par IPA.
