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 loverís 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 youíll remember.

A very nice NW-style IPA with a nice hop-to-malt complexity. I wish it was sill available in Oregon in bottles. Great green labels and awesome grapefruity piquancy. Try it if you can.

Draft. Yeah, some guy had to leave cause his girlfriend was under 21, but he paid for his beer anyway. So me and alexanderj reaped the benefits. It was an average IPA, decent floral hops.

Got this for free after some patron bought his beer and left. Split it with golubj. Flavor and aroma were ok for an IPA, but generally it was a bit disappointing. Aroma and flavor were dominated by a floral and some citrus hop presence.

DruncanVeasey (7379) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 11, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2007 Fluffy-headed golden tulip. Iíve only sniffed it and itís already Beer Of The Evening. A seductive, encloaking fog of sweet floral hoppiness, pine and succulent mandarin. Silky lace clinging to the glass. Quinine bitter hop dryness in the finish. Hugely smooth, fruitily refreshing and absolutely drenched with perfumey tangerine and Turkish delight flavours. A lip-smacking bottle of hops more than worthy of the tulip treatment.

From a 12 oz bottle from a Goose Island sampler pack. pours a small head; nice orange, slighty caramel color; nice flowery hop nose. Has a good bitter hop finish (not as strong as other IPAís). Not the best IPA, but a good standard IPA that is very consistant from Goose Island.

realale420 (399) - west covina, California, USA - FEB 28, 2007
12oz bottle (thanks to shigadeyo) poured a clear orange color with a small white head. The aroma was floral citrus with some pine and caramel malts. Taste was well balanced with a small push toward the hops. Good malt profile make this beer a nice treat. A big change from all the west coast IPAís that are normally around.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2009 An old fave: Creamy IPA with a head that lasts until the last drop. Cloudy golden pour that exudes aromas of stone fruit, honey, bready yeast and pine all intertwined in a balanced symphony of olfactory nuances. Following not too far behind is the flavor, contributing more of the same. There is a distinct British flavor, which must be the yeast. A very mellow IPA, in the sense that while it is plenty spicy and fruity, the distinction between hop and yeast flavor/aroma/bitterness are blurred. Thatís what I like. Very well balanced. Nothing crazy, but just different enough to be considered excellent and a benchmark for the style. Again, the finish is slightly bitter, slightly fruity, subtly sweet and sensuously creamy; all in balance. Excellent.
