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.

A pale golden yellow coloured beer with a thick white head. A heady hop aroma, loads of citrus fruit and grassy elements. Dry mouthfeel. A bitter, zesty citrus fruit hop taste, grapefruit, lime and possibly even orange flavours along side a grassy taste. The finish is lingering and citrusy.

Bottle, 355 ml at the Beehive, Gatwick. Pours hazy orange with small white head. Hoppy fruity aroma and flavor. Piney. Nice hoppy bitterness characteristic for american IPA.

English IPA. I prefer the really hoppy beers and this is not one of them. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tessic (913) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
This IPA poured a medium amber colour with a minimal, creamy, white head. Scents include grass, citrus hops and cider. First swig was very hoppy with orange citrus and grass. Finish was quite bitter with citrus/grass lingering.

Ulysse (207) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2014
Really fruity aroma, realized afterwards that was exactly what was advertised on their label. Fruity with maybe a hint of raspberry but still unsure. A down to earth bitterness.

Une pinte en fût à Manhattan, dans un pub irlandais. Une belle dorée avec une mousse blanche. Le liquide est translucide. Un nez de houblon frais avec un malt blond. Une bouche avec une belle amertume, facile avec des notes d’herbes et de malt blond. À boire à grosses lampées.

Can’t believe I’m rating something from AMBEV so highly. Dependable beer, very distinctive resiny aroma. Of course, the hops totally overpower everything else - its just a showcase for the (admittedly lovely) New World hops. Unusual for a US craft style IPA, its very moreish. One of the best bottled IPAs, certainly in the UK - beats the living heck out of Punk IPA for example.

Nice discovery on a US trip. I had it in Boston and NYC, mostly accompagned with pizza or nothing.
