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.

tykjen (182) - Florø, NORWAY - APR 13, 2007
Desent IPA. Strong hoppy aroma with some malty caramel notes. A bit cloudy, just coarse filtered? Small head. Finishes a bit too much on the sweet side, I would prefer a drier, more bitter finish for my IPAs.

HAD TO GIVE IT A GOOD SCORE SINCE I HAD IT FROM THE CASK AT STOUDT NYC. NICE IPA GOOD FLAVOR.FLORAL, PINE AND GRAPEFRUIT WITH NOT A VERY INTERESTING MALT BASE. 6$ FOR A HALF PINT ? COME ON NOW. THANX FOR THE FREEBIE VEGAS! OH! NICE GOLDEN BELGIAN TYPE LOOK TO IT. YOU OFFICIANADOS SHOULD REALLY LIKE THAT.

Nephilium (1392) - Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2007
Pours a hazy light amber, with a head that fades to lacing quickly. Nice hop flavor, not too much of a finish. Decent IPA, but doesn’t compare to most of the others I’ve tried.

MarkBarnes (378) - Waterville, New York, USA - APR 8, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 April 7, 2006; 12 oz. bottle. Cloudy orange pour; what little head dissipates quickly. Sparse lacing. Citrus aroma with notes of malt. The long-lasting dry bitterness on this one garnered an extra "palate" point, although the finish is a tad thinner than my favorites of the style. Pretty decent IPA.

Re-rate on July 3, 2007: Exceedingly well-balanced, with a welcome malt bias. A winner.

incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - APR 2, 2007
I have been drinking nothin but IPA’s for the past couple weeks, and they are all starting to blend together for me. This one was really good too, nice amount of hops for this hop fan. Not to fruity. To many ipas claim to be the "hop lovers dream" though.

xmarcnolanx (929) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2007
A good example of a traditional American IPA. Has a piney, citrus hop nose with a predominantly bitter pine finish. The malt backbone is slightly sweet and the carbonation helps dry this sucker out. A very quaffable lawnmower beer.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2007
Pours a golden yellow straw color with a white head. Aroma is malty with some bitter citrus hops. Flavor is malty with grassy citrus hops.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Pours with an orange body topped by a thin head with little lacing. It bitter and hoppy with piney notes, a slight floral note and a little grapefruit with a touch of malt . Medium bodied and a bit warming.

Amber pour with white head. flavor is quite bitter with some fairly heavy malt and caramel flavors. Some citrus and fruit. A decent IPA.
