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 loverís 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 youíll remember.

Very good brew. Pours amber color, only slightly cloudy. Nice foam head attatched. Smell is good, nothing fancy, but solid. Taste is full of hops, and a slight pine taste. Very drinkable brew for it provides, thanks for the chance to try it kc.

Zimmo (57) - Siloam Springs, Arkansas, USA - FEB 2, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice amber color with thin white head and light aroma. Interesting hops taste, but not as enjoyable as others have rated. I typically love the strong hop taste of an IPA, but somehting about this one puts me off. Not bad, just not that good.

Solid IPA, at times i thought I lmight like this better than the xxx IIPA, but in the end itís not as complete nor compex a beer as itís older brother. Itís a beutiful standard IPA, if you like hops youí;ll like this. On Tap @ Goose Island pub lincoln park

UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 Re-rate, Jan í07 on draft at Durty Nellieís: Original experience stands, no wet dog aromas, though, just a really nice overall IPA, good earthy and resinous notes supporting the citrus. Original Rating: Poured an amber to pale color with a frothy nice white head, very nice lacing, looking pretty so far. The aroma was grapefruity, quite nice, other citrus notes, some citrus rinds. Slight wet dog aspect to the aroma, but it didnít come out after the first few minutes or in the flavor. The flavor otherwise followed suit, light resinous notes also underneath it all but citrus/grapefruits definitely the highlight. Moderate mouthfeel, fairly clean finish, nice stuff. Not quite as outstanding and rich as my favorite Stone IPA, but pretty darned nice and drinkable.
