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.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2006 Bottle. Not a bad IPA, but not enough hops for me. Pretty nice mouthfeel with a hint of caramel. More noticable malt than most IPAs. If they added more hops I think they’d have something here.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Gold, crisp-looking pour with a milkshake head. Hop and spice aroma. The flavor was similar with hops, fleshy fruit, faint anise at the end.

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Older bottle. Pours golden with a thin white head. Decent hop aroma, floral, citrus and soapy with a good malt background. Taste is more malty than I would’ve thought, decent floral/citrus hop taste, but not enough for my taste. Some nice caramel notes in the finish. Medium body, a little carbonation.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - SEP 24, 2006
Bottle dated best by 1/14/07. Amber pour w/ 1 finger white head. Medium floral hop aroma w/ a hint of spice and a nice caramel malt background. Flavor is pretty much the same as the aroma. The hop flavor has a nice juicy quality to it. Malts and hops are well balanced. Medium body with a creamy mouthfeel.

Jabswitch (278) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 21, 2006
Firm hops aroma. Pretty light golden amber. Smooth for an IPA. Relies on the hops without a disctinct citrus flavor. Thought that it might have a little more kick for an IPA. But looking at it overall as a pale ale, it is very good.

Stine (1744) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Clear golden shade with a foamy white head. Fairly usual piney, grassy aroma with sweet tea. Heavy bitterness on the tongue chased by mandarin orange sweetness - good juicy hops. Another well done example of IPA.

RoyceH (1198) - Hesperange, LUXEMBOURG - SEP 11, 2006
Bottle, Cellar Bar, St Andrews. Hazy caramel-amber colour, bubbly white head. Hoppy, slightly sweet bitter nose, strawberry tones. Taste is sweet hops, grassy and lemony. More like and English bitter than an IPA to me. Palate is grassy hoppy dryness, long bitter finish. Rather nice.

fpierfed (5) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2006 does not count
12 oz bottle. Great India pale ale. A pleasure to drink and to smell. Lots of hops for a very fresh taste. Very nice IPA.

shrubber85 (9999) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2006
Bottle. Pineapple-orange hops aroma. Bright orange-yellow with small head. Initially a strong sweet orange juice flavor followed by moderate citrus hops. An excellent IPA.
