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.

Commercial, but very pleasant IPA. Lots of hop, kind of short in taste, almost green in colour, easy drinkable for an IPA. Dies quite fast in the glass. Drink fast!

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 I don’t go for this style of beer. I like things a little on smoother side. While this is a well crafted beer I just don’t care for many Pale Ale’s Grapefruit notes for sure.

35,5 cl bottle at Patricks in Kristiansand, Norway and at home the day after. Unclear golden color, nice off-white head (small head at Patricks). Fruity (tropical), hoppy, caramel malt. Good, but a bit watery compared with my favorite, Nøgne Ø.

asedzie (735) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 30, 2007
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Pungent piney hop aroma. Extremely light taste. Bright hop flavor is fruity - passionfruit, citrus rinds. Solid malt backbone. Bitter finish. Excellent. Completely to style.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Yellow-amber colored with a thick off-white head. Lots of citrus in the nose. Grapefruit twinged bitterness is accompanied by a toasted malt and caramel. A nicely balanced IPA, but it won’t be your cup of tea if you are looking for a West Coast hop-bomb.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Pours a medium neutral, light amber. Beautiful aroma’s of pine, floral and hops notes. Little to no head foam. Flavor is of full bodied malted hops and pines. Has a grapefruit character as well. Pretty good IPA. A bit higher than middle of the road beer. Good stuff!

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Thanks to theisti for this great IPA. Deep copper color with thin white head. Good lacing. Nose is great hop resin with some pine, caramel and light grapefruit. Flavor is a bit more subdued, good malt vs. hop blend with tangerine and grapefruit finish. Less bitterness at the end than I would expect, although nice hop flavor....which makes it finish pretty clean. Good IPA example.

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2007
(12oz bottle): Pours a huge head, light tan, big bubbles, lasting, good lacing. Very clear, light amber body. Very bitter hoppy aroma., just lots of bitter acid. Surprisingly balanced taste. Malty with a little hops. Cleaner and sweeter on the end. Not very complex or overall flavorful. Okay but more a pale than an IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2007 Bottles.... hicup. I brought some of these along with me to carboration day, friday before the Indy 500. I met up with a group of guys that do this as an anual man day, including homemade ribs, wings, and crawfish. This little IPA was the icing on the cake. I brought along a six pack and it did me right. This one is nice and hoppy, citrusy and a little dry in the finish. I could even drink these warm. Well balanced and you can get ’em anywhere. Well not anywhere but.... Thanks to my buddy Doug Sneddon at Reno’s Music for recommending this one.
