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 loverís 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 youíll remember.

Pours a bright, gleaming orange color, with a big, creamy head that clings to the glass. The aroma isnít overly skewed to the hoppy characteristics, with notes of citrus peel and pine contrasting against light bready malts. The flavor is a bit dull and earthy, although there is some bright pine character and a light bready sweetness at its base. The light, fine carbonation is nice, but there isnít as much lingering bitterness as I expected. Overall, this is a solid but unremarkable IPA that I will gladly drink up but wonít seek out.

nose: earth, forest, apple trees. palate: light, sweet, fresh. lots of tree fruit, white currant and peach acidity. woody bitterness on the back end. finish is very floral and drying, with a waxiness on the tongue. nice everyday drinker if you want an ipa that doesnt slay your tastebuds

Flaska från Alko, Finland. Grumlig orangebrun vätska med ett mindre skum. Doftar kåda och torkad frukt. Väl balanserad fruktig smak med en ganska lätt beska. Hyfsat lättdrucken, smakar bra helt enkelt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft Brewery Clybourn (Old Notes)-Pours amber with a decent sized head. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is well balanced.

Appearance: light golden with two inch head. Moderate lacing Aroma: grassy, some citrus grapefruit with a little herb. Overall moderate nose but not over powering Taste: a little malt right after the initial bitterness. Not crazy bitter. A slight chalky aftertaste that lingers ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Served in tulip glass from bottle. Less than 1-inch head, decent lacing. Hoppy aroma, more pine than citrus, with biscuit-like, malt warmth coming through. Pine taste, malt backbone but definitely hop-forward, and remains dry, hop-centric. Medium mouthfeel. Slightly metallic on the back/end. Long finish, lighter than used to with an IPA, especially English-style. Not bad, not my favorite.
