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.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2006 This is better than GIís Impy IPA that cost almost $5 a bottle. This inexpensive brew is better than many higher priced IPAís. Many faint notes come together nicely-- nothing is overplayed and I leaves you guessing and wanting more. Lime/orange tea. More herbs/spices than most. Maybe banana or pear.

A hop lovers dream, as soon as the cap comes off you can smell the hoppy fruity aroma. The beer is a pale brown and settles in the glass with a thin beady head. The taste is as the aroma prmoises..full of hop and citrus maybe too hoppy for some.... the finish is long lasting and satisfying.

theisti (3475) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2007 Bottle. Orangish pour, hazier than I would have expected. Smells the hops right away on the pour with oranges and lemons. Good full body, slight bitter finish. Very refreshing IPA.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Slightly hazy orange golden with white head. The aroma is a bit spicy, with citrus hops predominating. The aroma suggests bitter spicyness, yet itís somewhat sweet for an IPA. Honeyish malt backbone with a subtle orangey light hop finish. Nice IPA, yet the bitterness is very low and the sweetness may be almost too much considering itís low dryness. But itís still a nice IPA.

TerryR (384) - Oswego, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Deep golden color with a very short lived head. Great pine/citrus/floral aroma. Flavor starts with lots of citrus and pine notes. Nice malt body comes through with a bitter finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2006 Dark yellow orange color. Short white head. Smells like hops and citrus. Great hoppy flavor somewhat dry very malty. Very smooth aftertaste somewhat on the light side. Very good overall

Rictus (126) - Dothan, Alabama, USA - OCT 23, 2006
Aroma:I can smell the hops. Smells nice... Appearance:Medium brown. Nice head somewhat bubbly. Head dissapates quickly... Flavor:Bitter and malty. Not very burnt. Hearty... I like it..... Palate:Thin. Not very carbonated. Not necessarily the best thing about this but itís alright. Overall: I love it. Very good not a horrible price (had worse beer much more expensive). Itís damn good and I wish the rating would come higher. The palate brings it down in and of itself but it fits well with the general feel of the drink.

Bottle, pours slightly cloudy with a nice golden color. Fruity aroma with hints of grapefruit, citrus and light floral. Good hoppiness, great flavor and finish. A high quality IPA.

just1otherguy (25) - USA - OCT 7, 2006
First impressions are wonderful with this beer. Aroma is all hops and citrus. Very inviting. Itís a light brown to dirty gold color and had a thick white head that never eniterly vanished. Taste delivered what aroma promised. Hops and citrus. Although I could have gone for a little more in the flavor it is still a great beer.
