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.

Draft at the brewery. Not the strong hop taste in most good pale ales. The lightness and lack of a strong flavor does go well with the good food severed at the brewery.

Not too hoppy at all for an American IPA. Well-balanced taste with subtle falvours of orange and copper. Very drinkable but not overly exciting.

Thechasm442 (509) - Manhattan, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2015
12 oz bottle poured in a tulip. The beer pours a clear golden orange with a thin whirte head and little lacing. Aroma is subdued but I pick up citrus, pine, and caramel. Flavor is pine and citrus up front. It is met with a juicy tropical fruit flavor and caramel. Mouthfeel is juicy, quenching, and somewhat dry. Tasty and sessionable.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Murky dark orange pour with a nice white head. Not a ton of hops in the aroma, as I was expecting. Flavors were sweet with a nice hop base. Very nice dry end.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2009
Bottle. Light orange, 5cm white head, good amount of lacing. Aroma is very fruity. Mango, sweet orange, some resin and some malt sweetness. Nice. Flavour is pretty much the same notes. Body is medium to light, carb is refreshing, but not too harsh. Not complicated or exciting in any way, but a solid representation of the style. Nice and sessionable.

ZodiacM (505) - 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.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2013 A great old-school IPA. Very hoppy, but not very bitter. Lots of citrus notes... I could swear there is orange zest in here. Malts are dry and take a backseat to the hops. The hops are smooth up front, crisp and spicy in the middle, aromatic and lingering in the finish.

From the bottle. Cloudy golden pour with fine head. Sour citrus with floral hints. Long bitter finish. High carbonation, perhaps a little too gassy. Not a session beer but overall very nice.

Damn fine American IPA. Loaded with hops, this one will not leave you disappointed. Piney aroma and a grapefruit after taste. Wonderful out of the bottle.
