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.

Bottled. Hazy orange colour, small white head. Not too sweet hoppy aroma with weak hints of caramel. Flavour is hayish hops with almost no sweetish notes around. Hoppy bitterish aftertaste.

Thanks to Dan at Gannon’s for this... Appears a hazy orange toned amber with small amounts of CO2 slowly rising to the top. Fluffy white head slowly fades into a mild cap. Nice streaks of lacing. Smell is of creamy vanilla, orange citrus, delicate spice...kinda like a spiced up orange cream sickle with a touch of earthiness. Taste is of the above mentioned aromas with an herbal quality that seems to play well together. Mouthfeel is hoppily spiced and sweet at the front of the tongue leading to a medium bodied balanced brew.

TBone (12966) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 30, 2006
Bottled (BB 07/2006). Golden color, small white head. Bready malty, hoppy nose. Fruity sweetish mildly hoppy - good balance with malts and hops. Good APA, not much IPA.

pivnizub (9001) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2006
Bottle: Deep golden coloured, light hazy, firm lacing small foamy layer; deceptive rich hoppy aroma: aromatic, sweet, herbal, floral....; strong and dry bitter flavour, surprisingly light bodied, fizzy, but smooth mouthfeel, just a little sweetness in the background; very persistant floral hoppy finish, supported by a juicy maltiness. This is the real thing ! A superbly crafted Ale !

topherh (1912) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - JUL 26, 2006
very bitter, orange, hazy, frothy, minimal head, this is one of my go to beers, it is no ruination IPA, but a very good IPA that is readily available in the midwest.

UnsofistaCat (238) - Garden City, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2006
Not bad. Kind of reminds me of Bell’s Two Hearted Ale excepted maybe a little sweeter. Lots of cascade hops. Eggshell head and orange looking. Decent.

Gr0ve (2153) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2006
355 ml bottle. Golden orange with a glowing haze. Quite a bit of carbonation. Orangey, piney and honey aromas. Clearly huge amounts of hops being used. Citrusy, sweet and sour, and some bitter, flavours. Medium-bodied, but with a good malty sweet body and background. Main focus is hop aroma, with a healthy dose of bittering hops. Finishes slightly dry and not too bitter. Great IPA.

milewide (1565) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2006 Everything that an IPA should be. Well hopped, but not as complex as Founders IPA or Bells Two Hearted Ale. $5/case less than other top IPAs.

Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Bottled. Good mild IPA from Goose. Decent gold/yellow color, light but fomay head. Hoppy aroma, but not over-powering. Same on taste. Good stuff.
