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.

Pours orange with white head, aroma is citrusy hops with some bready malt. Taste is fruity up front with orange and lemon, leading into a biscuity and bready malt that finishes bitter. Nice IPA.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Hazy peach pour with a small, though nicely lasting white head. The aroma is juicy pine, earth, citrus, lemon, orange, and sappy resin. The flavor is fruity orange, tangerine, and apricot with definite backnotes of sappy resin, earth, and some sweet malt. The palate is medium bodied for the style with a lively caressing effervescence and a clean, flavor retaining finish.

Slightly hazy peach pour with a smallish but lively frothy white head. Aroma holds lots of citrus hop, notably orange, pink grapefruit, and lemon, along with touches of earth, floral, and piney notes. Flavor is quite solid; more citrus notes, but with an increased earth and evergreen presence in the form of moss, spruce, and some resin. Palate is pretty standard for an IPA of this caliber; medium bodied, with a lightly bitter finish. Above average IPA for sure.

Aroma is moderately hoppy with a strong floral scent. A nice golden color with noticeable haze upon opening. Taste is definitely the beer’s best asset. It goes down smooth, hoppy, and bittersweet, never too hoppy, sweet, or heavy. It’s just right. A personal favorite and one of the best IPA’s I’ve had

Pours a opaque yellow-amber color that reminds me of passion fruit. Head was thin and white, but pretty stable throughout the entirety of the drink. Smells of citrus fruits and some hops. The taste had less fruity overtones and more floral hops and spices, although there was a slight citrus bit to it. Decent amount of carbonation and kick. As my first IPA, I was definitely impressed and will look forward to trying others.

jnelson_22 (118) - Heerlen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2010
Pours light straw gold with a decent white head. Nose is incredible with plenty of spicy hops, citrus, pine, grassy with hints of light malt. In the mouth, initially hops, but very well balanced with some light malt, and a lingering hop bitterness. An amazing example of an IPA... The best one I’ve had.

Bottle: Dark straw color with a lot of haze. A finger of thick, creamy off-white head and heavy lacing. Straightforward aroma is floral, citrus, and caramel. Rather sweet. Big impact right away with the taste. Full of hoppy pine resin, florals, and citrus. Caramel malts. Rather intense and syruplike body sticks to the mouth. Nice finish is hoppy and lingering. Nice.
