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.

psilosophy (670) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - SEP 23, 2016
Bouteille de 355ml. Couleur dorée limpide, mousse moyenne d’ assez belle tenue. Une Ipa assez étonnante dans la mesure ou on y retrouve un côté fleuri, je la trouverais presque un brin fumée. Une belle carbonnation et une sacrée longueur. Trouvée à Vanuxeem - Ploegstaert.

Crockett (1089) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2016
After thousands of cans and bottles....(not all in one sitting); We are ready for an actual rating. Pours clear light gold/honey with a tall off white sudsy head with a lot of lacing. Nose of pine, peach, faint black tea, and toasted crusty bread. Bittersweet. Good resiny hops with peach, bubble-gum, and mandarin orange. A ubiquitous beer nowadays, but really solid and tasty. Just about the only decent IPA that’s readily available at any beers store simply because of the AB-Inbev connection.

Punkero (293) - FINLAND - SEP 23, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2016 Copper clear. Usual flowery aroma. Straightforward, no bs. Generously hopped, but not too much. Leaves a bitter boogie that fades to watery tropical fruitiness.

Karol (791) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 22, 2016
Can bought at an LCBO in Toronto Canada. Pours a clear copper color. Thick soapy head. Aroma of caramel, malt, plum liquor, some pine. Taste mirrors the aroma plus bitter hops and some dark fruits. Refreshing. Strong alcohol in taste. Medium carbonation. Overall a good malty American IPA.

Tried on draft. Solid IPA with clean taste. Hoppy without citrus. Not a distinct taste of a particular hop. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Wonderful IPA. Not super hoppy, but pretty tasty. One downside is that the bottle over fizzed after opening (after being stationary in my fridge for 3 days).

From 12oz bottle. Intense smell of hops as soon as bottle is opened. Pours golden-yellow to orange with thick white head. Good retention. Hoppy, citrus aroma with slightly bitter end. Very good IPA.

Can at work by MisoT, thanks. Pours golden color, white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, grapefruit, caramel, hops pellets. Taste is bitter, medium sweet, citrusy, nicely hoppy, caramel, malty backbone. Really nice IPA.
