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.

I’m not a big fan of this beer. It smells intoxicating, but the taste is ...soapy. I know I use that a lot to describe this kind of beer, but thats what it tastes like to me.....nice color, great foam.....and the taste isn’t bad...but its just something off-setting to me!

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 14, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thin, whispy white head, some lace. Smells of faint, ripe citrusy, very slight nutty scent. Tastes earthy, slightly nutty, slightly astringent, semi-flowery and citrusy hoppy. That’s right, I said it. Soem sweet malt flavors linger. Medium body, good carbonation.

kassner (1506) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Bottle, light golden in color. Slight haze. I have seen this IPA really extolled in a lot of Mags, which makes me wonder. it’s a nice IPA but no way best in class. Modest Head, very little malt or flavors overall, no Hops odors, more like an APA.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Pours a lightly hazy deep amber with nice golden highlights and a medium foamy off white head that laced. Aroma of floral and citrusy hop notes, caramel, toffee and nuts. Flavor of fig newtons, toffee, caramel, nuts, floral, light pine and citrus.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 6, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with one finger white head. Nose is caramel malt and light hops. Taste is sweet malt upfront with a mild hop finish. Medium mouth feel. Meh, not one of the better GI offerings.

Uaru02 (23) - Simpsonville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 5, 2008
12 oz. bottle. A very good beer that I can find nearly anywhere. Not the best, but better than most. A good burst of hops that doesn’t linger very long. Easy to drink.

awharr02 (6) - USA - SEP 1, 2008 does not count
12oz bottle... poured nice golden color, decent head, decent lacing. Wonderful aroma of citrus. I wasn’t overly impressed with the flavor. It started off strong with big dose of hops, but didn’t hold well and finished abruptly. I was looking for a little more body out of this one. This is a refreshing beer.

AllAboutStout (605) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Pours a nice dark amber in color. There’s about three inches of head atop the beer. Smell is piney hops. Taste is more of the piney, grassy hops. There’s a little bit of a juicy, citrus hop flavor as well. Very good, biting mouthfeel. This is a good IPA.
