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.

The first thing that grabbed me was the aroma. The heady, unmistakable IPA aroma just knocked me out.... in a good way. Then I tasted it. Wow.

UPDATED: DEC 11, 2014 [558-20070823] 12floz (c/o jerc). Light medicinal aroma with a bit of woody bandaid, light citrus hops and weird but good fruit. Hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Dry grassy hops flavour has light bandaid, grapefruit and non-sweet pineapple notes. Dry medium-full body. Interesting hop aspect. (6/3/7/3/13) 3.2

[6099B-20131214] Bottle. Light peat poop and house yeast aroma. Clear, pale orange body with a quick foamy white head. Bitter and grainy flavour. Medium body. Average. (6/3/6/3/11) 2.9

hombrepalo (1936) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2007
Copper body, off-white head, spicy and floral hop nose. Spicy body, slightly limp mouthfeel, nice dry finish, decent malts. Would rather have a Pere Jaques, Matilda or even a 312.

DeweyDell (159) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 26, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a thick foamy white head, very appetizing-looking. Aroma is full of fresh hops, but not overly-hopped. Balanced and very drinkable. Especially great for the price... I think that this may be a regularly-stocked item for me. =)

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 25, 2007
12oz bottle. Pours a golden/orange color with a relatively small but firm foamy white head. Very good lacing. Wonderful citrus hop aroma. Peach, oranges, sweet tangerines . A great smell. Nice, bitter, balanced taste with a noticeable malt background. Finish is pretty short and sweet. Creamy mouthfeel. Doesn’t taste quite as amazing as the aroma but it’s still good. This beer is not going to knock anyone’s socks off but it is an incredibly well-made, every day IPA. I wouldn’t mind drinking this all the time. And at 5.99 a six pack, well...

jercraigs (8485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2014 2013-12-14. Quick notes - Grainy, relatively bitter but not a ton of hop character. Bottle sample at Abraxas, Miami

2007-08-24. Orangey body with a moderate white head. Aroma is interesting with notes of spice and resin to the hops. Flavour is less hoppy than I was hoping for, light caramel malt, resin, some sweet orange citrus an incongruous sweet spice from the aroma. It is a bit odd really. Not unpleasant but am not loving it either. Either a wonky bottle, or a different take on an IPA than I am used to. 6/3/6/3/12 Bottle from Rozis, Cleveland.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Pours an orangey copper with a thin white head. Smells of citrus, pepper, caramel, some dough. Taste is initially bitter with peppery splashes, sweet malt and hints of citrus. Decent.

On tap at Clybourn location. Amber color. Small white head, excellent lacing. Very hoppy yet extremely drinkable. Not as woodsy as the Rye. Overall excellent beer for drinking. Highly recomended.

vadersnightcap (80) - SCOTLAND - AUG 11, 2007
Bottle. pours like a transapaerent gingery brown, relatively dark. nice little fluffy head. Palate is more spicy than i expected and a spicey ginger taste runs through the beer. Really refreshing and nicely hopped. One of the best amerocan ipas i have had. Smooth body and nice bitterness that kicks in just when you wan it to! recomended
