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 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.

Golden amber color with modest white head. A: nice IPA, with a perfect balance between lemon and exotic fruits. Faint apple juice note. No extreme highs, just a nice blend. T: as expected, relatively bitter with some very distinct wood and floral notes. Bitterness that hits the palate first is apple, and bitter from exotic fruits. Floral notes follow, mostly rose water. After yeast deposit, the beer gets a bit of a doughy character (as opposed to a very crisp beer before the yeast). Bitterness abates relatively quickly, a fruity aftertaste is left.

Have had this on tap several times - usually pretty easy to find in MN. Enjoyable crisp tasting IPA with a nice dry bitter finish.

Petite nouveauté dans nos épiceries du Québec. Bière de couleur cuivrée, avec une belle mousse généreuse. Nez puissant et sucré d’agrumes et de houblons floraux. En bouche, c’est fruité, goûteux. Notes d’agrumes bien balancées. J’adore. Cheers!

Bottle bought at AH. Nose is citrus fruits, melon, spices, oranges. Taste is heavy bitter and very dry, with some melon fruitiness. Nice.

Bottled from UK Supermarket. Aroma is super interesting, smells like dried fruit but can’t quite nail what it is. Taste is almost perfectly bitter however it is r ather brief on the palate. Overall a damn tasty beer.

Pours an average frothy white head that slowly diminishes. Body is clear yellow orange, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains light malts (cookie, dark bread, straw), fairly strong hops (flowers, resin, grapefruit, lemon, orange zest,), moderate yeasts (soap, earth) and apple, forest fruits, cherry, pineapple and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light sweet, followed by light bitter and light acidic and finishing in bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. A nice IPA loaded with hoppy fruits and backed up by enough malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Serving: from tap at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor. Aroma: light pine hop. Appearance: small, creamy, off-white initial head with fair lacing and mostly-diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-yellow body. Taste: lightly bitter and citrusy initial flavor and finish with short duration. Palate: light-to-medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: refreshing.

Aroma is of nice hops and hints of detergent. Has good foam on top of a light copper body. Flavour is okay hops with some citrus. Weak on the mouth. It’s slightly below average for an IPA.
