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 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.

This IPA is one of the most delicious and balanced Iíve ever tried. Right when you open it and pour, it welcomes you graciously to the party it has in store. It has a wonderful golden color with a burst of bubbles and a light, hoppy head that kicks things off nicely. There is no bitter burst of hops here, just a gentle, somewhat bubbly smoothness. The beer itself is very sweet and creamy, and reminded me somewhat of Three Floydís Gumball head with its hints of candy. There is a distinct presence of malt which balances out the hops perfectly, meaning that every sip you take a delightful and balanced. More of a malty IPA with a note of hops than vice versa, which is how most IPAs are. This is perhaps the easiest drinking IPA Iíve ever enjoyed. Perfect representation of the city of Chicago.

16 oz can poured. Likely a little past itís prime, since Iím not sure when I bought it, or where. Great IPA for the low price though, thatís for sure. Clear golden pour with a rocky foam head. Fruity hop aroma. Flavor matches, but slightly metallic to pair. Overall a nice IPA, that I would prefer over many beers it will surly be lined up against at a less than beer friendly place.

Clear golden beer with a white head. Bitter, dry citrus aroma. Flavour is initially the same though thereís a touch of sweet citrus in there as well. Itís not the most spectacular IPA youíll ever have and it certainly doesnít taste itís strength which is a bit dangerous but itís a crisp, refreshing beer and goes down very easily.

Hopverdju (348) - BELGIUM - APR 30, 2016
Goudblond met wandklevend rijkelijke witte schuimkraag. Geur: onmiddellijk een onaangename zweetgeur, hoppig en wat pompelmoes. Smaak: bitterig, hars, zoetig. Medium volmondig en medium koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: bitter en iets te zoetig. Niet voor de ganzen, maar ook niet geweldig.
