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.

Spicey shoe leather, lemon with eraser adn cheap wine. This medium yellow beer with a white short-lived head is nothing if not interesting... Flavor is pleasant, bitter and sweet with something original in the middle. Citrus and pine in an old suitcase, Very drinkable, but the finifsh makes you want somethin else, so you take another sip to get rid of the plain bitter and dust. I bet a lot of people like this beer a lot!

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Botella. US rating no. 400. Deep golden orange colour. Aroma of hops indeed with citrus and some ripe fruit. Very good mouthfeel. The flavour has a very pleasant fruity hoppiness with some citrus and little pine. Dry long lasting hoppy fruity finish. Nice!

BroSpud (2069) - , Massachusetts, USA - FEB 25, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2010 Draft. Included as part of a sampler at the brewpub. Tried many of the GI offerings over several visits to the brewpub while living in Chicago. I remembered liking pretty much everything but do not remember specifics. 3/10 - They now sell this in bottles on the east coast so I got to retaste. Upping the score as it is a pretty solid (though nothing spectacular) IPA

NachlamSie (3297) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2009
Bottled on January 6, 2009. Sampled at O’Hare. Pours a cloudy orange with a good head. The aroma has suggestions of citrus, lemon drops. It’s fairly bitter, but not strong per se. The flavor is woody and lemony sweet. I don’t find a lot of hop definition, but a pleasing level of bitterness is imparted. Think session level IPA. Clean, bitter enough, sessionable IPA.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - FEB 21, 2009
12 oz bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2008. Copper orange color with creamy head. Sweet aroma with strong hoppy tropical fruit scent featuring mango, apricot and lemon. The flavor is hoppy and firmly bitter with tropical fruits and hints of honey. Soft and very drinkable, excellent.

OzarkElmo (316) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Bottle into Tulip. Good but not spectacular aroma, good color and lacing throughout. Medium-bodied; citrus & piney notes. An above average India Pale Ale. Good bitter finish and very enjoyable. One plus is it is the only IPA at our WM Supercenter, so Cheers to that when I need an IPA fix and am among the masses!

lamas (1573) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Bottle. Bottled on date: 01/02/09. Pours a hazy amber with a smallish light-tan head. Predominantly grapefruity aroma with some hints of caramel. Medium-bodied with above-average carbonation. Fair balance with some caramel biscuitiness upfront. Finishes with lots of piney, spicy grapefruity dryness. Fairly harsh at the end. A solid IPA.

Overall a very nice IPA. Good hop character on the nose. Nice malty citrusy palate. Low to medium dryness, less attenuated than most of this style.
