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.

blklab2007 (2118) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 20, 2008
bottle poured a golden in color with a one finger frothy white head that retained fairly well. aroma has citrus and pine hops, juicy fruit, sweetness, and grapefruit. fairly hop hefty with a nice resinous tone. lighter mouth feel with average carbonation. flavor is hop centered. bitterness gets hold over a citrus, pine, and grapefruit medley. plenty of sweetness and just enough malt to hold it together well.

DSG (11600) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - OCT 18, 2008
(10/9/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Clybourn, Chicago. Clear golden to amber color. Floral hops in the nose with some grapefruit and some tropical fruits. Flavor begins slightly malty and turns into pleasant citric hoppy bitterness. Medium-bodied. Nice.

cblado (298) - Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice goldenrod color, nice pearly head with good lacing. Aroma is a bitter hops, some spices. Flavor is hoppy, and ends on a musty note with currants. All in all it’s an okay IPA, not quite enough flavor for me, however.

RudeLead (8) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2008 does not count
Pours slightly hazy, wonderful golden colour. Medium, but enduring head. Resin, stonefruits (peach, dried apricots), pale malt and hints of honey and spice on the nose. Quite good gypseous mouthfeel. Aroma in the mouth follows the nose with a pleasant, mellow bitter finish and well balanced discreet malt sweetness. Quite long. Overall a very well composed, delicate, elegant and drinkable IPA.

malrubius (2588) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 4, 2008
12 ounce bottle in pint glass. Pale yellow gold with lasting head and lace. Fresh citrus hop aroma. Very mild honey sweetness (even warmed up) almost nil fruitiness, followed by a bracing hop bitterness and dry finish. Somewhat out of balance, but I like hops like the next guy. Medium body and somewhat medium high carbo add a little unnecessary bite. Not bad. And a rarity for Long Island, it’s fresh. Extra points for readable date code.

That1Guy (2192) - Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Decent IPA. Very nice balance of sweet and bitter with a lingering bitter finish. It’s no Two Hearted, but it’s one I’d get again.

noncaloric (684) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 30, 2008
Aroma: Strongly coniferous, hints of ripe fruit. Appearance: Hazy caramel color with two fingers of off white head. Leaves thick rings of lace all down the glass. Flavor: Piny and citric hops at the fruit. Notably fruity-sweet malt body, finishes grassy with apricots and biscuit, lingering floral bitterness. Palate: Juicy mouthfeel, lively carbonation.

jezmez68 (404) - Chesterton, Indiana, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Just an average IPA. Not enough hops for an IPA. Palatable, more malty than hoppy.

taalhiker (190) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2008
From bottle. Part of May Dayton Beertasting event. Pours golden amber. Piney hops dominate the nose. Crisp taste with caramel malt finishing off. Nice effort.
