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.

coyotehunter (698) - , Michigan, USA - JUN 17, 2009
Pours an orangey copper color. Moderate head. Aroma is floral and citrusy. Flavor is not bad, some hops, citrus and a good bitter to it, but doesnt stand out by any means. Good beer for drinking on a hot day.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
It is a warm golden beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of mango, citrus, peach, spruce needles and caramel. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of fruit, mango, citrus, spruce and caramel. It is very well balanced and charmingly uncomplicated.

DeadGirl (478) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 14, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2009 On tap at Rattle N Hum (NYC): A solid IPA. Fruity aroma coupled with a flowery bouquet of hops flavor refreshes the palate with each taste. Pleasing and wonderfully simple. #003 on 14062009, DG.

walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2009
a good but not great ipa - a little bit of sourness and that chalkiness you get really bad in porters - but nice hoppiness - could be sweeter, but probably not unless it was also hoppier and more alcoholic - I think I just like my ipas a bit more bigger in every way.

12 oz bottle. Pours a relatively clear golden orange color, with a medium white foamy head. Aroma is floral hops, slight sweetness, pine. Flavor is a mild hop, light bitter, with a creamy, refreshing finish. Extremely pleasant IPA

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 5, 2009
On tap at Wrigleyville Goose Island. Poured a clear gold with a white head. Aroma consisted of piney hop notes, nothing too complex. Flavor was nice w/ a good balance of hop flavor throughout.

EHSRanders (1994) - Tjele, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2009

evergreen0199 (2973) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2009
Bottle from Wholefoods in Kensington, London. Amber pour with a smallish head. Pleasant aroma of hops and citrus fruit. Quite bitter, fruity, hoppy. Nicely balanced IPA. Not as complex as some but fine for an IPA and good value.

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle at Apotek, Turku. Golden to light amber, firm foamy pale head. Quite sweet honeyish nose, good flowery hops, mineral notes, that sugary sweetness disturbs a bit. Simple bitter flavor, citric zest and little flowers, clean sweet maltiness, long citric bitterness. Light to medium bodied, strong spritzy carbonation. Didn’t offer much, not even that refreshing because of the sweetness.

jesperhammer (4134) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 29, 2009
Bottle, 29-MAY-2009. Slightly hazy a little light with orange hue and white head. Nice nose of hops. Very grape fruity, and very bitter. If only one kind of IPA existed, I could live with this one. It goes well with food, and also alone. It is just a nice beer, and although I have had better IPA’s, I will come back to this one. Birthday present from Morten, thank you.
