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.

Bottle at the Bankers Draft, Bedford. Amber/copper with loads of carbonation. Not so much head. I don’t care for the aroma: butter, soap and overripe apple. Taste is middle of the road sweet with a bitter tinge, short finish. Not a very enticing beer, I liked this when I was younger but not so much now.

A little hazy orange beer with a medium beige head. Fruity smell with caramel. Soft and round mouth feel, medium bodied. Grape fruity hops, caramel, toffee, bubblegum. A very nice IPA.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a decent white head that disappears quickly leaving a thin ring and some lacing. Hints of pine and grass in the aroma. Taste is medium bitter and almost no sweetness. Average carbonation, light to medium body, flavors of grapefruit, maybe other citrus, no perceptible malt, medium texture and a solidly bitter finish that shows a sticky sweetness in the far finish.

Kahuna1337 (37) - Mariehamn, FINLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Clear orange colour with white head. Aroma is very hoppy and fruity. Taste is a great combination of sweet maltiness and hoppy bitterness. Medium to full bodied with a nice kinda bittersweet finish.

john44 (556) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle - Amber Gold in colour. Very Fruity; citrus grapefruit and tangerines. Very Hoppy; piney resinous and spicy peppery hops. Malty backbone; caramel, buttery malt base. Good fruit/hop/malt balance. Rather salty. Moderately bitter citrus fruity hoppy throughout. Dry finish. Very refreshing. Nice IPA!

Clear golden with a thin foamy white head. Strong hoppy grassy aroma with a wee touch of grapefruit rind. Flavor is clean and lightly hoppy with the same grassiness and light grapefruit rind tones from the nose with a touch of floral hops at the finish. Pretty nice and floral.
