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.

Draft. Pours a dark gold color with a brief white head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is mostly malt with some hops but the taste brings out more of The hops which are balanced. Clean finish, medium body. Very good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dacrza (450) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - FEB 21, 2014
DATE TASTED: February 14, 2014... GLASSWARE: Corsendonk thistle...OCCASION: in between storms--with another of Dave’s Super Bowl leftovers... APPEARANCE: massive, mountainous white head that begins as an iceberg peak; consistently active, orange amber body; glass lip to beer top lacing... AROMA: aromatic floral hops; slightly malty; piques the interest...PALATE: creamy, active and warming at the throat; the modest alcohol is properly situated--a balanced mouthfeel...TASTE: powerful,, cutting, arresting--any siege-like hyperbole aptly fits; wonderfully sprucey and citric without being overbearing... OVERALL: kudos to Dave for his Super Bowl selections--both Honker’s and the IPA play well as samplings or sessionables; a big IPA that remains accessible and relatively affordable...

Pretty standard IPA. Quality brew from a quality brewery. Hoppy goodness that is balanced nicely.

Served draft in a plastic cup. Not enough aroma for my liking but easy drinking. A nice, balanced, dare I say old fashioned IPA.

Zarkam (344) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2014
355ml bottle. slightly hazy amber colour, small frothy off-white mostly lasting head, good lacing. Heavily hoppy fruity and slightly perfumey aroma of orange and herbs backed by moderate grainy malts. Taste is initially even somewhat sweet and malty, turning into a very bitter long finish with a moderate to heavy astringent feel. Medium body, initially dry and later oily mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Well above-average American craft IPA. Actually one of the best ones I tried, especially tastewise.

Valjuhko. Komea pullo, ihan mukava tuoksu. Kermainen ja hiivainen. Rappa kalja. Ja Santtu.

Pours slightly cloudy amber colour with tight thin head. Smells of distinct sweet tropical citrus fruitiness. Taste to follow with dry bitterness balance. Nicely balanced and falvourful ipa

Draft. Nice hoppy aroma. Nice copper color. Flavor has that piney aspect I’m not entirely fond of. Not bad though.

DrunkSanta410 (193) - Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2014
On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings, Terminal D, Atlanylta Airport. Pours darker amber with good sized off white head. Aroma is citrusy with solid malt presence. Taste is hoppy with citrus fruit and grass. Spicy malts present as well. Little bitterness. Palate is softly carbonated. Not bad, but I think the tap system here is contaminated. Some slinky notes in the after taste.

Klar gylden, tæt kompakt skum. Aroma: mørk citrus. Smag: let, lys citrus og ananas. Rigtig god bitterhed, bittersødme som harmonerer godt med medium carb og hænger ved i eftersmag.
