COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our tribute to the beers that once quenched the thirst of parched colonials at Admiral Gage’s East India station. This UK-style IPA is rich with caramel malt and overripe stone fruit character, balanced with a big bitter finish.

Aroma is of Grapefruit and passionfruit. Bottle. Pours a clear copper colour. Taste. Has a piney flavour, with also notes of grapefruit and mandarin. Overall. A good ipa but nothing too special

Pretty much what it says in the deScription. A good beer that won’t let you down. As a first choice on the shelf I’m not sure. The malt is smooth with a good nose but missing some more hops for my taste. The honey tasting malt are the highlight making it rather more like an APA.

Bottle. Dark amber, small white head. Good value session ipa with good balance between biscuit/caramel malts and citrus/earth/pine hops with only moderate levels of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Burned orange with a very thin, crisp white head. Spiced aroma with some reasonably hefty malt scents present, dark caramel. Decent upfront bitterness, herbal and earthy hop flavours, cracked pepper and slight citrus. Malt backbone not as strong as label promised but still there slightly. Medium body with good carbonation, lingering bitterness. It’s ok.

DavidAust (173) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 6, 2015
330ml bottle poured into a shaker glass. Aroma - citrus and pine. Not as big on the nose as other IPAs but more than your standard pale ale. A slightly cloudy deep golden honey colour. White foam that on the first pour came to about one finger. I used the last 50mls or so to really step it up and got to about two fingers with a very lively pour. Held for a minute or two and then faded away to a ring. Some lacing so far, but nothing huge. Quite a malty and meaty(? - perhaps savoury is a better word) flavour up front; followed by malty sweetness (which despite the label, I didn’t expect from an IPA) and then tartness at the end which lingers on the palate. Would really go well with a strong cheddar or zesty foods like salsa, or a mango chutney (so mexican salads and indian food - no surprises there). Overall a surprising IPA due to the maltiness. Although I liked it, it isn’t my favourite and not what I had in mind when I thought: "lets have an IPA tonight". It will go very well with the fish tacos tonight, but after every mouthful all I really want is mango chutney. Nice beer, but not what I was expecting in an IPA.

floydian1 (1313) - FNQ, Australia, - NOV 3, 2015
Not a bad English-style IPA from Gage Roads. From a 330ml bottle it pours unfiltered amber-brown with a medium eggshell-white head that reduces to a stable film. Nose and tongue is malty and earthy with floral hops and orangey citrus. Finishes with a light dry hop bitterness. Medium body with a soft carbonation and easy drinkability.

mrjez (379) - Osaka, JAPAN - OCT 15, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2015 Bottle. Pours a gold-amber with some biscuit malt and citrus aroma. Tastes good, a solid sweet malt base with a nice level of hopping for a Brit IPA. Earthy caramel notes, a touch of fruit, smooth to drink. Worth a try.

Malt, yeast, pepper, and a gin-like juniper twang. Light at the front, with the pepper lingering at the back. Not bad.

330ml bottle into schooner glass. Slight aroma, citric hops but also a little malt. Nice copper coloured beer with white head. Medium carbonation. Not as bitter as I expected. Definitely hoppy but with a smoky malt background. Finish is lingering and bitter. A bit understated but drinkable.
