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.

Bottle. This is a very sessionable crisp, fantastically hopped beer. Is bronzy orange in colour with a nice white had givig good lacing. Aroma is of grapefruit, pine, grassy hops and slight orange/citrus peel. Reminds me a bit of of sweute in mincemeat with fern leaves. Light with adeuqate grassy cirtusy hops and grainy malt. Good medium body with refreshing carbonation. Very nice ipa

Marsiblursi (3054) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2007
(Bottle) Pours hazy orange with a white head. Great mixture between the malt and the hops in the aroma with tones of pine, resin, syrup, caramel, light flower and light grapefruit. Also some other fruits like tangerine and apricot. Maybe some hints of boiled eggs. Malty, caramelly flavour with some nice hoppy tones of pine, light grapefruit and light orange peel. Also some flowers in the background. Light to medium, syrupy sweet and medium bitter. Medium mouthfeel and body. Nice.

JLAudio (282) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Definitely a solid IPA. Smells quite floral and citrussy, as expected. Good hop aromas while pouring, with a nice sized head with good lacing. Taste is pretty crisp and clean, not too complex, but just enough malt to balance the choice hops. The spice is noticable, cant put my finger on it though. Nice refreshing finish, not bitter enough though. This beer needs a little more ABV, and a little more IBU’s and it would be superb

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 4, 2007
Clear golden body with a very smell off-white ring. Typical citrusy aroma. Slightly toasted caramelized malts. Hops flavour are half-orangey half-pine-tree. Caramel flavour dominates the bittering hops. Oily body with a carbonation that is too soft. Feels lifeless. The mild bitterness that is about as assertive as a clumsy new-grad on his first day at work. Considering the excellent brewery I consider this to be either a disappointment or a bad bottle. At beast, an average IPA. I’ll try it again, I’m sure it can be better.

in my opinion one of the best ipas for the price. pours dark amber with spicey, hoppy smell. thick mouthfeel. well balanced with abundant malt and strong but not overwhelming bitter finish.

12oz.bottle from Tanaka. Golden in color with very little head. Very floral aroma, citrusy. Nice malty flavor, with a good hoppy finish. Bitter, but nothing over the top. Crisp finish. Good beer, but nothing special

I’ve never heard of this Yank brewery before, but supposedly it’s well acclaimed and I can understand why. A very nice pale ale. Tastes absolutely nothing like an IPA (in the proper English non-bastardised sense), which it purports to be. Light amber in colour and very bitter sweet. Very spicy in taste - almost something of a Belgian there. Very enjoyable!

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2008 Rated 3/23/06: Wow! This is a well crafted IPA in all aspects. Pours a burnt orange color into my glass. There is a thick foamy head that immediately forms and eventually simmers down to a fine creamy film. Carbonation is slightly visible, and a thick lacing forms all the way down the glass. This beer is very aromatic, a bouquet of spices, malts, and bitter hops fill my senses. This is a very traditional aroma that is well balanced. The mouthfeel is thick and full with a very nice finish. The flavor is outstanding. Spicy and citrus flavors from the hops immediately hit followed by a smooth maltiness. At first the intensity from the hops overwhelm my palate but after a few tastes this beer comes together in wonderful fashion. Well rounded and outstanding in all categories, well done.
