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.

Love this stuff because it totally opened my eyes to American craft beers. I donít want to insult it by calling it a gateway beer, but itís not QUITE as fantastic as I remember it now that my palate has developed. The hopping is mainly a firm, clean bitterness, with only mild hop flavor but powerful aroma. To me itís very piney, woody and almost waxy. Typically clean/neutral US malt & yeast.

Not too keen on the gassyness of this beer. After taste is dry and the flavour quickly disapates...not too impressed

Maarten1993 (420) - - MAR 26, 2015
Drank at home with Kaspar 25-3-2015. For 5,9% the beer has a fine taste. Not very special. A bit too bitter. Not as rich as some other IPAs (for example Mkkeller I Beat U or Brew Dog Hardocore IPA): slightly boring bitterness.

Abio (1678) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2015
Orange coloured brew with a good sized head. Decent fruity and grassy. Just misses a small boost.

ZodiacM (200) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 23, 2015
Helder oranje-geel bier. Geuren van hop, mout, bloemen. Smaken van hop, licht bitter, grassige nasmaak. Lekkere frisse IPA, niet heel uitgesproken van smaak, goede introductie hoe een IPA smaakt als je dit soort bier niet kent.

Aroma of malt, some caramel, tropical fruits, pine, mild hops. Flavour is light to moderate sweet with a moderate to medium bitter finish. A nice mild IPA.

Very well made IPA with a good resinous aroma, nice bitterness, yet still some malts in there. Not the best ever, but for a beer this easy to find, a great beer.
