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.

Bottle from The City Beverage Co, Old Street. Pours amber with a small white head. Nicely balanced bittersweetness, a touch of fruit and a dry hoppy finish. This is the kind of beer I could keep a stock of, extremely drinkable and great with a variety of foods. In all honesty, it prolly would’ve scored higher if I hadn’t had so many double IPA’s as of late.

Bottle. Thanks Nnudd. Clear yellow body with a meduim white head. Grassy and hoppy aroma with fruity notes. Lots of exotic fruit, hay, hops and malt in flavour. Long bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied.

CanIHave4Beers (3584) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Pours a clear pale color with champagne like bubbles and plenty of fluffy head and lace. Aroma is good lots of fresh hops very piney and grassy. There is a good bitter flavor fresh spicy hoppiness balanced by a mild roasty pilsner like maltiness. The palate is sharp, this is considerabally better than I remember.

This is a very good IPA. Extremely well balanced between bitterness and taste. The aftertaste of this beer is delicious as well. I usually go back and forth between this beer and Dogfish Head 90 Minute in a night.

Alphadelic (1936) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 20, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2009 Bubbly pale orange with a sustained head. Sweet and floury aromas. Honeyed sweetness on the tongue. Very smooth with a buttery thick finish. A little sweet for an IPA. I know my score seems harsh but I drank this straight after a Stone IPA and there really is no comparison. 2.7 Now, having had this alone I have to say it is rather lovely. The hop notes are so green and fresh. It reminds me of a Thornbridge Halcyon on a not-so-intense scale.

ilherps (248) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2009
This beer has some really nice aromas of citrus and pine from the hops. Lots of differing flavors of grapefruit, pine, and mild grassiness. This is a very nice go to beer.
