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.

bigcat03 (228) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JUL 13, 2006
Bottle from Hy-Vee Liquors poured into 16oz shaker - Pours dark golden brown with a 1.5 finger beige head that goes away fairly fast; Lots of hops and a hint of caramel to the nose; A citrusy initial taste that has a BIG floral side to it; A piney backtaste that doesnít overpower at all; No bitterness what so ever! Iím quite impressed!

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 12, 2006
12 oz. Bottle. Pours an almost clear light golden color a nice white head and lacing all the way down the glass. Pine and caramel in the nose. Pine, grapefruit, and toasty caramel flavors that balance with the hop bitterness at the end. Good IPA.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 5, 2006
Pours a med. chill hazed amber with a white frothy head. Aroma is citrusy but mild with some caramel character. The body is med-light. The flavors are rather formulaic East Coast IPA with some citrus and pine, a touch of caramel, but nothing really impresses. Dry light bitterness in the finish. My wife says itís a nice APA. I would not disagree.
