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.

Bottle. Pours gold with a large, frothy white head. Sweet, citrus aroma. This is also the dominate inital flavor before eventually turning slightly more bitter-hoppy at the finsh. Softly carbonated with a watery texture. A well balanced brew that doesn’t try to kill your palate with bitterness. I would say this is a good choice to introduce someone new to the style.

TrefwoordPunk (900) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2009
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours an orange golden with a medium white head and an aroma of hops, cookies, citrus, grapefruit, sweet malts and grass. The taste is bready, with salty notes and notes of fresh citrus fruits. The aftertaste is really hoppy, but not too sharp or bitter. Really nice.

mansquito (5108) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 22, 2009
Pours clear orange with whiteish head that leaves lacing. Grassy hops aroma. Hop taste is most prominent midway through the tasting. Touches of lemon accentuate the taste. Some bready notes. Not very intense, but definitely a good session IPA. Doesn’t leave that hop aftertaste in your mouth like some beers do.

Onslow (1371) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Pour from 12 oz bottle. Slightly cloudy tawny colored brew with a nice aroma of malt, butterscotch, bitter hops. Pleasant swallow with a fine IPA character, though a bit restrained in the flavor. The only downside ot this brew is that there is nothing here that is really distincitve -which is more of a commentary on how wild many other IPA’s have gotten. Overall, this is one fine brew.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - SEP 19, 2009
Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours a clear yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is hops, citrus and orange. The flavor is hoppy, and leaves a bitter palate. Overall a good beer with a pleasant hoplevel.

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Pours a vibrant deep orange with small white head. The perfumy aroma is intense but well-balanced with prominent notes of grapefruit, honey, and orange. Flavor is hoppy with some lemon, honey, orange, and spice. Very well-balanced. Soft mouthfeel with a low-moderate level of lingering hoppiness. I expected this to be more in-your-face, but it’s surprisingly delicate.

altonbrownd (5415) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - SEP 18, 2009
Bottle at Beer Temple. Orange body with medium head. Hoppy nose and taste. Some bitterness and citrus. A bit watery. Pretty good IPA.

screigh (625) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Pours a straw color. Fluffy white head that stuck around with some nice lacing. Small hop citrus aroma. Bitterness is almost the first thing I taste but it’s not an overpowering bitterness. Mouthfeel is nice and light. Has some sort of dirty taste in finish. Very mild IPA in my opinion. Easy drinker.

GMCC2181 (1586) - Newark, Delaware, USA - SEP 15, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2011 Surprised to see I have not had this one before... Picked up at SL. Drank at home. Nice orange color, decent one finger size head. Good aroma of citrus hops. Taste is nice. Slightly fruity... piney nice little hop bite to it... Nothing mind blowing, just a solid IPA... Medium body, easy drinker at less than 6 percent.

Hazy orange look with a decent offwhite head. Aroma holds lots of grape and citrus with some sweeter orange notes aswell. Medium bitter very refreshing flavor with a medium sweet caramel backbone. Nice.
