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.

Copper-orange color. Citrus and fruity aroma. Little bitter and malty. Slightly weak character as IPA, but I like this taste. One of my best beer!!

Sparkling copper body topped by a substantial slightly off-white head. The wispy glass lace is a treat. The aroma of piney hops hits you the minute the cap is popped. Deep inhaltions only comfirm the pine hops, but also add a bit of light non-offensive plastic, and light caramel sweetness. The flavor is packed with juicy hops with a smattering of sweet malts swirling around to keep things under control. The body is medium with a fairly attenuated finish. Bitterness develops throughout culminating in a big bitter burst right after the swallow. Nice enough, though it does make my palate weary even though it is not nearly as big as some other hop monsters out there.

Sweet, hoppy, spicy aroma. Nice slightly milky golden tan color. Aroma bursts on the palate with lots of hop. Smacks slightly bitter, but pleasently complex.

Thanks to Duane for this. Dark straw pour, with a medium, fizzy white head that dissipated quickly. Wow, the aroma. Reminds me of Titan. Huge piney esters coupled with resiny florals. Almost perfect aroma. Now, for the taste.....I bring it to my eager mouth.....hoppy, very hoppy, with some floral, fruity, spicy hints at mid palate and at the esophageal boundary. As it warmed, more intense pinet resins emerged. This beer is as underrated as a 50 cent, disease-free whore with 3 inputs.

Pours hazy orange golden with a solid white head. Aroma is mostly bitter and flower hoppy, not very heavy but nice and fresh. Flavor is fruity and hoppy with a good bitter end and nutty notes. Little thin in the body but still nice and tasty. An easy drinkable IPA.

Pleasant aroma of floral hops, light fruit, and honey. Golden-amber color, thin white head. Nice hop flavor, decent malt support, honey, solid bitterness. Medium body, dry finish. Good all-around IPA, good balance.

(Bottle) Pours a cloudy light-orange body. The nose has a strong sweet orangy-hops aroma. Great Hi-C hops flavour in the beer - should be the basis of what IPAs are gauged. Solid beer. Thanks Luc.

Rather cloudy(my fault,not paying attention when pouring, so unfair to penalise the beer), aroma is fantastic hops ,hops & more hops, and some malt. There is so much flavour here, superbly balanced. At the moment this is available at Safeway, but will it survive the Morrison takeover..I hope so.
