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.

cloudy orange, thick meium sized offwhite head. looks real nice. aroma can be detected far away from the glass. strong aroma of sweet pine, sweet grapefruit. quite dry. but also sweet. great simple hoppy aroma. flavor is hoppy, malty sweet, hops are sweet but not fruity, beer is quite dry. malts and hops balance nicely. aftertaste is dry and slightly malty sweet. truly impressive given the alc %. very nice IPA.

couchand (182) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - APR 25, 2009
It pours a remarkably light-color, the straw shade of a cream ale. This is a bit strange, as pale ales tend to have caramel malts to provide a bit of sweetness in order to balance the hops, and caramel malts add those rich reddish browns. It is fairly clear but there is certainly a bit of haze. The off-white head is creamy and strong, but not very voluminous. The nose is strongly of Pacific northwest hops: the floral grapefruit and orange character that defines American pale ales. The flavor is at once creamy and sweet yet robust and bitter. Strong hop bitterness leads the way and doesn’t let up, providing a throughline that the rest of the flavor dances around. The hops aren’t content to be a bit(ter) player, though. Herbal, earthy, almost vegetal flavors intermingle with serious grapefruit, mango, and citric hoppiness. Notes of light malt come through: a clean and malty, almost bready, flavor. This contributes a bit of sweetness that is frustratingly evasive. For a moment it almost seems balanced, then the bitterness rears its beautiful head.

Skinnyviking (8073) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 25, 2009
Bottle. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Slightly hazy peach coloured body. Pleasant hops dominated aroma with fruity notes in the background. Flavor with a good balance between the malt and the hops. Dry bitter and long lasting. Low carbonation. Alcohol level seems just right.

Flaske: God kraftig bitter duft. Blomstret smag på en meget bitter øl. Rigtig fin IPA men ikke speciel.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with nice white head. Aroma of some pine, pineapple, and some malt. Flavor of some malt, hoppy pine, nice small bitter that lingers a bit. Mouth feel is medium body with high carbonation. Over all, pretty good IPA, easy drinking and tasty!
