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.

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 (1950) - New York, USA - SEP 2, 2006

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.

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2006
It pours a carmel orange with a small white head, the hop aromas are cascade like piney bit of citrus and malty. The flavor is carmel and malt with some hop bitterness that lingers. Probably their best year round brew.

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 It pours hazy orange with a small frothy head. Aroma is lightly malty and heavy perfume hopps. Flavor is heavly bitter and the finish is the same, Light to medium bodied, a bit watery and lively .

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 18, 2006
Bottle. Nice hazy amber appearance with a thick ring of bubbles. Nose-sweet hops, PNW hops, and pine. Taste-medium bitter, Earl Grey tea, Fruit Loops, lime, citrus, grapefruit, low-medium sweetness. Very solid IPA. Probably one of the most well crafted understated IPA’s that I have had in quite some time. True to style and tame in all the right ways.

mabjork (673) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2006
Bottled. Hazy golden in colour. Minor white head. It has a bitter aroma of malt and juniper berries. The flavour is sweetly bitter and there are hints of juniper berries. It has a pleasantly sweet aftertaste.

TechMyst (167) - Fox River Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2006 355ml bottle. Smells like sweet, Pine needles. My first IPA. Full and rich flavor. Soapy in the middle. Tastes like someone swept up after one took out the Christmas tree and made it into a beer...Slight banana taste also. Chill down a little and it is really quite nice.
