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.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2006 This is better than GI’s Impy IPA that cost almost $5 a bottle. This inexpensive brew is better than many higher priced IPA’s. Many faint notes come together nicely-- nothing is overplayed and I leaves you guessing and wanting more. Lime/orange tea. More herbs/spices than most. Maybe banana or pear.

First impressions are wonderful with this beer. Aroma is all hops and citrus. Very inviting. It’s a light brown to dirty gold color and had a thick white head that never eniterly vanished. Taste delivered what aroma promised. Hops and citrus. Although I could have gone for a little more in the flavor it is still a great beer.

A hop lovers dream, as soon as the cap comes off you can smell the hoppy fruity aroma. The beer is a pale brown and settles in the glass with a thin beady head. The taste is as the aroma prmoises..full of hop and citrus maybe too hoppy for some.... the finish is long lasting and satisfying.

Light copper color, Flowery, grapefruit hop aroma. Taste is of grapes, grapefruit, with some caramely notes. Finish was semi-dry.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Bottle. Not a bad IPA, but not enough hops for me. Pretty nice mouthfeel with a hint of caramel. More noticable malt than most IPAs. If they added more hops I think they’d have something here.

Gold, crisp-looking pour with a milkshake head. Hop and spice aroma. The flavor was similar with hops, fleshy fruit, faint anise at the end.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Older bottle. Pours golden with a thin white head. Decent hop aroma, floral, citrus and soapy with a good malt background. Taste is more malty than I would’ve thought, decent floral/citrus hop taste, but not enough for my taste. Some nice caramel notes in the finish. Medium body, a little carbonation.

Bottle dated best by 1/14/07. Amber pour w/ 1 finger white head. Medium floral hop aroma w/ a hint of spice and a nice caramel malt background. Flavor is pretty much the same as the aroma. The hop flavor has a nice juicy quality to it. Malts and hops are well balanced. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel.
