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

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.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Clear garnet with a standing white head. Distinct spicy English hop aroma with some woody notes. Some toffee also. Sticky and puckering in hop flavor with a long bitter finish. Dry. Could maybe use a bigger malt flavor but nice anyway.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Pours a medium pale with a white head and some lacing. It has a grassy, earthy and pine nose. Good malt profile with pronounced pine and earth hop flavor. Good mouthfeel with a dry finish. Nice beer.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Light copper amber color, small white head. Muted Cascade family hop aroma. Slight floral hop notes, english malt in the flavor. Slight residual bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium light.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Pours a lush gold. Aroma is buttered popcorn. Flavor is citrus, most notably the ever-present grapefruit of this style. It finishes waaaaay too dry to be considered a noble effort. Leaves a slightly sickly sour (say that fast 10 times in a row) taste in the mouth. Not very good.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2005
Bottle. Pours gold to light orange in color. Bubbly medium white head. Mild aroma, earthy, piney hop aroma, decent malt aroma as well. Not a typical over hopped west coast IPA aroma. Wow this is bitter. The aroma threw me, I was thinking that this was going to be a mild brew. A little toasted malt characteristic as well. Very astringent, the bitterness and acidity lasts.

jasonp (1557) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - AUG 17, 2005
Bottle. Pours a clear classic copper with a medium off-white head. Nice aroma; musty, floral, earthy and grainy. Flavor starts off with toasted malt, wood, caramel and then grapefruit and citrusy hops. Doesn’t have pacific NW hop character, more of an English-style IPA. Medium, creamy body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. A very nice, well-balanced IPA.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 16, 2005
Tasted 15/08/2005. 12 fl oz bottle from BrewNZ. Rose gold with a disappearing, lacey, off-wite head. Nice sweet, floral and caramel, malt aroma slowly subsides to reveal an average, grassy, hop aroma. Flavour is similarly caramel at first but quickly gives way to a toasty, burnt, malt astringency and an absolutely huge hop bitterness in the finish that lingers, almost seeming to intensify, for quite some time after swallowing. Light mouthfeel for 6% but this is balanced by a low level of carbonation. A bit over the top really. OK for maniac hop heads, I guess, but I prefer a better sweet malt balance (the malt here is a touch too astringent).
