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 loverís 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 youíll remember.

12 oz. bottle; bottled on 02/23/08. Nice citrus aroma. Golden amber color with a beige head. Medium body with mild, slightly fizzy, carbonation. Flavor is a lot of citrus and/or grapefruit hop over some light caramel. Good stuff. Nice bitter finish. Some floral aspects develop as time progresses.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear light amber color with a good sized white head. The aroma is citrus (mainly grapefruit) and pine with a moderate sweetness. The flavor is very much the same. Enough malts to balance a bit. The finish tends to the dry side with good bitterness. Decent midwest IPA.

I was a little dissapointed with this....I think cause it was waaaaaaaaay past its best buy date so i think some of the flavors and aroma were off. not bad though Iím sure a fresh bottle would be outstanding!

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle@Home. Strong sweet fruity aroma, mainly grapefruit, light floral. Light amber color, beige head, good lace. Sweet, pretty bitter, grassy, grapefruit, some yellow sweet fruit as well. Quite full with a dry finish. Flavorful, easy drinkable, guess it has all it needs for an IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2008 this is better then two brothers heavy handed and red hook long hammer. i bring that up becuase ive just drank all three in a short period; ive had the goose IPA many times over the years but these recent sessions have brought it into perspective. for what it is -- a ímainstream craftí brewery with a non-imperial IPA -- this is above average. it is more bitter then its peers in the least subtle of descriptions, and furthermore just has íballsí. im usually not so terse but this isnt the most complicated brew. however in its own microcosm of non-complicated brews, it seems to excel.

Bottle, so cheap itís unbelievable.... The flavor is beautifully hoppy, citrus, and floral. I love this beer. Itís far from my favorite IPA, but for the price you canít go wrong. This is a great summer BQ Beer.

Hopps prevail in this IPA, color is a little cloudy but a deep golden brown with a medium head. Full body with strong taste

An extremely hoppy IPA. The hops can be smelt from a mile away and as soon as it hits your tongue, it wonít be forgotton. A true beer for hop lovers with a full body.

tompete (276) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2008
Bottle. Amber with a light white medium head. Flowery hops - not as strong as I hoped. Strong lasting bitterness with minimal malt to back it up. Good full body.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2008
This beer poured a little lighter orange colour with a very small white but pleasently aromatic head. Taste was moderately hopped, but nice finish with a classic citrus tone that lingers for a while.
