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.

Orange pour with a white head. Pleasant aroma of hops and sweet malts. Very easy to drink. Great hop flavor throughout but not overly potent. Very balanced and sessionable.

ApisAles (1575) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - APR 3, 2009
On tap at The Hairy Monk in NYC. Poured a nice orange yellow color, crystal clear with lots of carbonation. Aroma was mild hops and malt. Flavor was a bit hoppy, but nothing extreme. Perfectly serviceable session beer, if a bit high on the ABV for a good sessioner.

BiddleBrau (1164) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2009
Pale yellow with white head and faint citrus aroma. On the tongue, the hops step up in flavor and blend well with the malt. Finishes clean and makes for a very nice brew. On tap at Pour House in NYC

kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2009
Tried from the bottle via utobeer. Tried this last week and when reviewing my notes the words sweet and soapy jump out at me! Smells ok, lemongrass and citrus has a light body and not to much bitterness unfortunately...i’ve had better APA’s to be honest!

jdmaher58 (24) - Dover, Ohio, USA - MAR 17, 2009
very mild for an ipa quite smooth.not very hoppy. I once again I taste unsweetened ice tea. perhaps it is only my palate, but I frequently find less hopped IPAs to taste this way. very drinkable but lacking the citrus I expect from an IPA.

hayduke (4930) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 13, 2009
This was from a 12 oz bottle and poured a cloudy orange with moderate head and good lacing. Big citrus nose and a smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is bitter and show pine notes. Long bitter finish. Very nice drinking IPA.

Blaketj80 (78) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 10, 2009
Consumed at fifty degrees. A nice surprise. Pours light orange with thin head and almost suspended carbonation. Smells of faint citrus and slight pine. Hops up front and bready out the back with surprising balance for the lack of abv. An enjoyable ipa, but nothing outstanding.
