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.

Aroma is moderately hoppy with a strong floral scent. A nice golden color with noticeable haze upon opening. Taste is definitely the beer’s best asset. It goes down smooth, hoppy, and bittersweet, never too hoppy, sweet, or heavy. It’s just right. A personal favorite and one of the best IPA’s I’ve had

Cor alaranjada com espuma de boa formação e persistência. Aroma herbal de lúpulo. No sabor, o amargor herbal do lúpulo é evidente. Médio amargor com final meio seco e média persistência do amargor. Boa IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strangebrewer (982) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2015
bottle. Poured clear amber with a thick off white head. Strong floral hop aroma. Medium-full body,crisp carbonation leads to a dry tart mouthfeel. Big hoppy flavour, spicy and citrusy, some bready malt but it’s quickly subdued by the hop pressence.

Orange yellow with little head, draft in shaker. Balanced hops flavor not heavily bitter but pleasant. Mildly bitter finish. IPA is not my thing but this is a decent session beer.

Have had bottled and on tap. No detailed notes - just had a couple at dinner and realized I hadn’t entered it yet. Decent enough.

Really aromatic. Floral and citrusy hops. Gold with a nice white head from bottle into a tulip glass. Unfortunately the flavor is just bitter. Being a beer not terribly malty, it’s not a great balance and on the thinner side. Way too bitter to be sessionable for me.

Bottle - Lots of floral notes on the palate. Taste is not very hoppy but subtle. Not a very dry beer or bitter.

lesifflebiere (1474) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2015
Boisson légèrement cuivrée, avec une mousse rare, et un nez de houblons fleuris et abondants. Texture mince. La bouche est dans les mêmes tons, le tapis de malt étant bien présent mais ne servant que de toile de fond pour les houblons, qui sont eux puissants mais relativement accessibles. Il en résulte une American IPA tout ce qu’il y a de plus classique, mais au-dessus de la moyenne de par son équilibre et le choix judicieux de ses houblons. Savoureuse.

Golden clear color, white head. Pine resin, light citrus. Bitter, biscuity malt back. Lighter body, fair bit of carbonation. Good.

bonkiedeaap (428) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 25, 2015
Bottle from Albert Heijn. The beer is golden/yellow colored and has a stable white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is hoppy and fruity, with tones of tropical fruits, grapefruits and melon. The taste is medium sweet and medium bodied, and tones from the aroma are present. The finish goes from the sweetness into a pleasant hoppy bitterness which diminishes over time. Nice and solid IPA.

overtheline (85) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUL 24, 2015
355ml bottle pours clear light amber with decent white head displaying good retention. A lot of treacley malt on the nose along with some pine and a bit of tropical fruit. Taste kind of follows but the hops overtake the malt. It’s a solid IPA with a nice balance, never too far away from the malt floor. Slightly thin but otherwise not much to fault. Good, not remarkable.
