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.

Stine (1573) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Clear golden shade with a foamy white head. Fairly usual piney, grassy aroma with sweet tea. Heavy bitterness on the tongue chased by mandarin orange sweetness - good juicy hops. Another well done example of IPA.

RoyceH (1196) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle, Cellar Bar, St Andrews. Hazy caramel-amber colour, bubbly white head. Hoppy, slightly sweet bitter nose, strawberry tones. Taste is sweet hops, grassy and lemony. More like and English bitter than an IPA to me. Palate is grassy hoppy dryness, long bitter finish. Rather nice.

12 oz bottle. Great India pale ale. A pleasure to drink and to smell. Lots of hops for a very fresh taste. Very nice IPA.

Bottle. Pineapple-orange hops aroma. Bright orange-yellow with small head. Initially a strong sweet orange juice flavor followed by moderate citrus hops. An excellent IPA.

BenDover (201) - Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Golden color with a thin white head. Nice hoppy aroma, with a hint of caramel and vanilla. For the money ($5.99 in my neck of the woods) this is a very good IPA.

Illini08 (542) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Golden honey color with a bit of a head that left some lacing on my Stella Artois tulip glass. Citrusy aroma. Nice balance of hops and malt. nothing overpowering, just a solid IPA.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2006
Orange and clear with a nice grapefruit-pine aroma. Sweet taste brought on by pleasant malts. Piney hop taste is very nice and flavorful. Light and crisp finish makes for an all-around, easy drinking session IPA.

crazyvin (1939) - New York, USA - SEP 2, 2006
poured a nice orange amber hue with a white fast fading head. sweet caramell aroma with notes of pine. medium body hop profile with some sweet malt notes. a real crisp finish.

Lowe1983 (1349) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2006
Pours a lighter orange color with a medium white head. Aroma is of citrus and pine hops with caramel and a hint of sweet malts. Flavor starts off with the citrus and pine that gives way to the sweet malts and caramel. Finishes slightly bitter. Better then I expected on this one, but not my favorite IPA.
