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.

On bottle, pours slightly cloudy golden with offwhite head. Aroma of grass, pine and earthy notes. Taste is smooth at first, then a nice hop bitterness of pine comes through.

Draft. Aroma is hoppy, but more floral than most IPAs. Appearance is a light bronze with some good, white lacing. Taste starts out almost sweet, then turns hop bitter before rolling into a danky hop finish. Palate is hoppy, but nice for an IPA. Overall, a good IPA. Very drinkable. Would buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

czar (4110) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
pours clear bright and light golden with a nice white cap, some retention and lacing. spicy toasted maltiness - quite doughy for stated abv, good dose of caramel, faint citrus and pine, white grape juice and other fruity esters. moderate carbonation, light body - relatively dry and balanced grassy-citrusy-piney-piney finish. tad muted but then again maybe a bit oldish. spicy. citrusy. straightforward. effective. example of the style for sure.

I had Goose Island India Pale Ale off tap paired with well spiced lamb chops. The aroma and taste held up well against the meat. The finish was a little long but was very enjoyable in a meal.

Bottle. golden with white head. Aroma is quite floral with some grapefruit and pine. Similar flavour. Medium body with a medium bitterness. All well balanced. Have drank plenty of times pre-Inbev and now post, can’t say I notice any difference, still good
