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 tap. unclear very pale golden with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. doughy maltiness, honeyed malts, salted and chalky caramel, fruitiness - white grapes, faint citrus and pine, candies. average to light carbonation, light body - oily and feels darn heavy for stated abv; semi-sweet spicy-citrusy finish. muted and not very sessionnable. an average ipa it is.

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.

A regular ol' IPA. Nothing special but decent and reliable. Nice golden color. One gave me a good buzz. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

adasko (876) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 15, 2015
Aromat super owoce, słodki. Klarowne, dobra piana, złote. Dość słodkie. Brak goryczy. Słodycz owocowa. Bardziej pale ale niż IPA. Mocno wysycone.

__Rb81 (340) - NETHERLANDS - APR 14, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a clear amber with a white head. Aroma of fruity citrus hops, floral, hints of pine, resin. Taste is hoppy bitter, citrus, peachy, malts, bitter ending with more piney, resiny,hops in the aftertaste. Not bad.

Purchased at local grocery store for $.75 each. (Same as unpackaged Buds, Bud Lights and Coors Light.) Not much to look at, not much aroma, not much flavor. Other than that, this is a perfectly forgettable beer.

Tout d’abord, des houblons terreux et feuillus se présentent au nez, malgré la présence de cultivars américains notés par la légère sensation de résine. Feuilles mortes et branches avec un soupçon de pin. Légère présence de viande également. Le visuel est doré tirant sur le ambré et très clair (filtré). Une bonne mousse blanche qui tient longtemps. Au gustatif, les houblons Anglais sont pleinement en action. Une sensation de terre, de gazon frais coupé, de branches et de feuilles d’automne. Un puissant houblonnage, mais tout à fait Anglais. On a pas souvent l’occasion de déguster une vrai IPA Anglaise avec toute cette invasion West Coast Américaine. Et ça prends bien une brasserie Américaine pour le faire.

Sweet piney grass aroma. Nice clear dark yellow with a small white head. Soft but round flavour. Light hints of citrus and fresh grass. Bitter dry aftertaste.

It’s fine, perfectly drinkable but nothing special. An acceptable, inoffensive IPA, but not particularly interesting.

16oz can shared. Aroma is mild malts and hops. Light bodied in all respects major confusion though on finding the name on here versus untappd which calls it a English ups which this is not.

12oz bottle pours yellowish color a bit cloudy with white head...plenty of lacing on the glass. nice aroma of mild citrus and some piney grassiness. the flavor is very good and smooth. just your normal bitterness for an ipa but delicate in its own right. very drinkable. it has a medium body thos this. rather like this one alot.
