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.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Lots of frothy white head. Pours golden amber and clear. Flavor is bready, but balanced with hops. Probably the best example of a balanced IPA out there. The dryness from the malt combine with the hops to make a nice floral dry IPA.

livelaughlovep (108) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Large, frothy head - appreciable lacing. Clear, sparkling amber with a thin, slightly oily body. The nose brings perfume, citrus and pine hops with a cookie-like malt backbone. The flavor is similar, earthy, herb hops with a hint of citrus and resin. Not bitter what-so-ever. Very smooth, sessionable IPA. Not the finest I have had, but the most enjoyment on the cheap, certainly.
(This is a hopheads’ review. You may find this slightly more bitter than I would. :D)

Todeon (325) - SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle. Nice golden color. Thick white head. Aroma is really floral and fruity with plenty of fresh hops and a balanced maltbackbone. Taste is fruity and floral with some grape in there aswell. Good maltbalance to it all. Finish is bitter. Really tasty considering the 5.9 %.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Pours dark gold with a thick white frothy head. Aroma is herbal hop and grapefruit citrus. Flavour is good hop bitterness, some pale malt showing through and a bit of a thinning out towards the finish, though a nice lingering dry-ish bitterness. Very drinkable

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden orange body with a white head. Nice citrus and pine notes among a light caramel hoppiness. Grass and a mild hoppy finish. Needs more IBU’s.

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep golden color and a medium white head. Citrus, hoppy aroma and a similiar tatste. A good malty balance to this IPA, smoother and sweet than other IPAs.

Landworld (1) - USA - MAY 6, 2009 does not count
This is a little thin for me. It is worth drinking if you want something to slam. Lacks the big hoppy flavor of a real Northwest IPA.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Pretty solid IPA. Very floral aroma and taste to it. Crisp and refreshing finish. Bit of a change of pace from the usual IPA. It’s just different. I can’t quite put my finger on it. But it’s in a good way. Worth a try.
