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.

A very nice, yet mellow ipa. Not huge with the hops but a nice balance. Some subtle earthy undertones also present in the aroma and flavor. Not bad.

Bottle. Fruity American hops with citrus zest. Pretty fizzy with annoying notes of damp tea towels.

Medium head, dark orange colour. Malty nose with powerful hop aroma. Dry malty, hoppy body, with both hops and malts lingering long into the aftertaste. Absolutely lovely!

Draught. At Sharp Edge in East Liberty, Pittsburgh, PA. Brought home a growler. Nice brew. Pours dark golden with nice head and great carbonation. Itís fun to drink out of the growler on the way home.... I wasnít driving! Great roasted hoppy taste (I donít know what the hop is other than Cascade, but itís used in 90 minute from Dogfish Head as well). Nice body, nice carb, great balanced flavor. Very nice stuff!

A nice pour good head and lacing. Hoppy aroma is there but not as much as I like. A good bottled IPA. Flavor has a little citrus and slightly bitter finish,a nice session IPA.

From the bottle, it pours a light, clear copper-orange color with a small rocky white head. The head disipates quickly leaving some lacing on the rim of the glass. The aroma is of sour grapefruit peel with notes of grass and some sweete malt undertones. The initial flavor is also of sour grapefruit peel. The middle begins to balance things out with a bit of sweet malt and then the finish is of hop bitterness that lasts a long time. A VERY nice IPA.

Light, clear copper body with a small white head. Aroma is citrus and freshly cut grass. Taste is pleasantly bitter, with oranges and lemons. Good session IPA and a great value.

BrockLanders (774) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 31, 2005
Pours with a light copper hue with good head and lace. Aroma was piney and fruity with some roasted malt and grassy notes. Initially the taste was piney and mildly bitter. In the middle it showed some fruitiness on the edges and a malt presence that I didnít expect. The finish dry and there was a definite bitter hop flavor. Mouthfeel was more or less smooth and a notch or two above what I would call "thin". Probably more of an APA than an IPA, but a good one no matter how you classify it. Thanks DavidP!
