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.

A slightly hazy orange-amber color with a nice white head. Hoppy grapefruit aroma. Nice flavor, obviously it’s hoppy, some nice malt flavors as well. Nice bitter finish. Very smooth mouthfeel. I drank this A LOT in college. Now that I’ve moved to Chicago, I find myself drinking a lot once again. Overall very good, but not the best IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 22, 2007 Bottle. Slight hazy copper/orange body under a fingerthick off-white head. Beautiful flowery hop-aroma, also citrus and dry malts. Taste is complex and mellow; citrus again, with a decent malt base and a delicate hopbitterness. Everlasting bitter finish. A great beer.
