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.

Pours a medium to dark golden brown with a thick head. It has a slightly hoppy, almost metallic aroma. The flavor is pretty smooth, with a lot less of a bite than most IPAs.

thehoff (598) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Quite clear for an India Pale. Nice orange color to it with a lot of carbonation.There is a cream quarter inch head with some nice lacing. Definite grapefruit peel smell to it, quite citrusy and bitter smelling. Quite bitter flavor as well, but inoffensive. Good but I think that I like the flavor of the Avery IPA q bit better.

12 oz pour from bottle into Spiegelau IPA glass. Orange-yellow, translucent, solid off-white head. Very piney nose. Medium body, a little sticky. Taste is bitter, malty, on the aggressive side.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Bottle. A - Slightly hazy copper amber with decent sized foamy white head. Decent retention and a fair amount of lace left over. S - Good hop smell, with a good amount of citrus (orange and grapefruit) as well as some floral/herbal smells. Faint caramel malt. T - A lot of varieties of hop flavors are abundant. Citrus (orange and grapefruit), a good amount of herbal/floral tea-like hops. Also a bit pine and pepper. The background has a bread/biscuit and slight caramel malt taste. This provides a base and balances the hops a bit. M - Medium body and decent carbonation. Crisp and fairly smooth. D - Pretty good. Fairly balanced beer with hops being the center of attention. Body pretty good for drinkability. Notes: Pretty balanced hoppy beer. Not an amazing beer, but a good beer for a hop centered beer but not a really bitter or heavily hopped beer.

Tsekouratos (595) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - FEB 2, 2014
355ml bottle. Poured an orange-golden color with a thich white head. Aromas of pine, citrus, lots of flowers. Taste was the same with maybe some spiciness (??) . Long aftertaste, dry and bitter. Body was light (a bit too light maybe) with medium carbonation.

BrewTom (591) - - OCT 26, 2013
Floral aroma with a mild, spicy, hop taste. Deliberately not extravagant (I suspect!), just a nice, classic IPA. Rated by BrewTom

SQNfan (591) - Wheaton, Illinois, USA - JUL 9, 2008
Golden in color with scents of citrus hops that dominate. In the mouth it was medium-bodied and very well-balanced. To repeat, the thing that strikes me most is the balance.
