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.

DiarmaidBHK (3785) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle from ACME Hudson. Pours light orange with an inch of white foam that leaves little lacing. Slight fruity hops on the nose. A bit pungent on the tongue with a hint of malt. Lingers a bit on the finish. Solid.

vidmidia (94) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - SEP 4, 2015
Cor de mel, límpida. Espuma média de média duração. Aroma de lúpulo, levemente cítrico, com notas de grama verde. Sabor amargo, mais forte no retrogosto que no primeiro contato com a língua, com notas de tangerina, grama verde e resina. Retrogosto amargo e final um pouco mentolado.

Evolutionary (404) - Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Tap at Eddie George at Columbus airport. Pour is light amber and gold. Hop nose and taste follows. Smooth and a bit sweet. Hop up front and mild smooth malt follows then is gone. Pretty good - would do again.

Metalchopz (2629) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 3, 2015
Pours a clean lighter amber colour with a frothy-foamy light-beige head that hangs on a little bit, leaving some full-foamy lace. The nose is nutty, with dark malts and some hops. The taste has more hops with the darker barley in the background. Not bad, but you can see that a macro has bought this and taken cheaper ingredients. Not as bad as the big guys, but not was I expected.

Zlotta (350) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2015
0.355 l can from local Albert Heijn, canned in May 2015. Clear, golden apricot with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Fruity-resiny aroma of mango, tangerine, pine needles and some honey. Sweetish, fruity-resiny taste of mango, tangerine, candied orange, honey and pine needles, followed by a medium long, medium bitter and gently dry finish. Thin to medium body, slightly oily and gently effervescent mouthfeel, soft to average cabonation. Pleasant and refreshing, slightly above-average IPA with emphasis on sweetish-piney rather than grassy-fruity notes. Nice!

tomekboniek (260) - Warsaw, POLAND - SEP 1, 2015
Butelka. Barwa ciemno złota, klarowna. Piana biała, szybko opadająca. Intensywny aromat owoców ( mango, brzoskwinia). Smak podobnie, wysokie wysycenie ze średnią do wysokiej niezalegającą goryczką. Orzeźwiające.

Carlisle (254) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Draft. Copper color with thick white head and substantial lacing. Citrus hop aroma. Hops upfront with malty biscuit in the middle. Subtle bitterness along with melt in the long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tognetta (398) - Campinas, BRAZIL - AUG 27, 2015
Âmbar alaranjada, espuma de boa formação e persistência, com aspecto cremoso. Aroma cítrico, floral lupulado, leve resinal, bastante convidativo principalmente por não ser exagerado. Paladar trás amargor médio, baixo dulçor, corpo leve e média carbonatação. Aftertaste mantém o amargor por um breve período sem ser cansativo, levemente resinal. Achei que poderia ser um pouco mais potente no lúpulo, mas isso se traduz em maior drinkability.
