COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lover’s dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one you’ll remember.

Pours a light, murky orange with a small white head. Aroma is of hops, citrus, malt, and pine. Taste is of slightly bitter hops, with citrus and pine. Nice caramel malt backbone. Not overly bitter, but very sweet. A very drinkable beer.

hoppy citrusy armoma -pous a slightly hazy copper orange with a white head. nice lacing on the glass- flavor is citrus and hops with a nice balance of malt - very nice flavor - this is not the best IPA but is a good one. I really enjoyed this. This is a fairly mild IPA and is very drinkable.

12oz bottle. Lively frothy carbonation. Filtered deep golden color. UK IPA style, full of hop flavor. Pleasant fresh grapefruit hop aroma. This is a really well done IPA. A very clean example of a world class IPA.

Courtesy of gillard. Pours golden blonde with white head. Aroma, sugary, hoppy fruity (grapefruit) and nice grains / malts. Taste, nice caramel malt, hoppy floral / piney. Very well balanced between malts and hops, doesn’t have the high bitterness of the west coast ipa’s.

I first tried this at a live theater, on tap, from a plastic cup. I was pleasantly surprised. Next time from a bottle with a proper glass, deep golden,off white head. I like the strong hops. I have a friend bring me a 6pk whenever he visits from Naperville, IL.

blklab2007 (2092) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 20, 2008
bottle poured a golden in color with a one finger frothy white head that retained fairly well. aroma has citrus and pine hops, juicy fruit, sweetness, and grapefruit. fairly hop hefty with a nice resinous tone. lighter mouth feel with average carbonation. flavor is hop centered. bitterness gets hold over a citrus, pine, and grapefruit medley. plenty of sweetness and just enough malt to hold it together well.
