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.

Bottle. Pours a 2", white, foamy head. Lasting and lacy. Clear, golden-orange body. Moderate hop aroma dominated by citrusy American hops. Mainly grapefruit and mandarin orange. Flavor contains white grape, pear and the aforementioned citrus. Biscuit and bready malt underneath as well as some cereal. Hops have an almost vegetal quality, but avoid being offensive. Medium body is somewhat sticky and resinous...distracting. Moderate carbonation. Overall a pretty solid beer.

OwainTurner (381) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle in WS, somewhere in London. Pours golden, with fine bubbles. Aroma of mixed fruit and hops. Wonderfully refreshing fruity taste. Not overly hop bitter. One of the best IPAs I’ve tasted. Very nice indeed.

During a time when IIPAs and IIIPAs are becoming more and more the norm rather than the exception, it is nice to see a beer that stays true to the English IPA style. Pours a very light copper, somewhat brilliant with golden highlights, good head with decent retention and fine lacing. There’s a distinct fruitiness that jumps out in the aroma which is slightly floral with a very light dose of citrus. There’s also a slight ester from the malt that comes across as biscuit and light tobacco. It tastes lightly sweet which quickly dissipates into a moderately dry finish. Very satisfying and drinkable. They’ve kept the body light enough to enjoy more than one pint. There’s a chewy malt and fruity yeast characteristic which is unmistakably English. A beautiful beer and a classic example of the style.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2007
Orange with an impressive rocky head. Big hoppy citrusy/spicey aroma. Quite light bodied. Big bitter flavour, a little sweet. The finish is long and, you guessed it.... bitter. A very good, no-nonsense IPA.

Got a 6 of this while visiting my brother in Chicago. Filled with strong hops (if not a little artificial). A very good beer for its price.

albertane (377) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2008
Beautiful hazy golden colour, full floral hop aroma. The flavour matches the aroma with lots of floral sweetness and a lingering hop bitterness. Beautiful stuff. I order it by the case but wish it were more easily available here in Nottingham.

Zekada (377) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle from beermerchants.com. Aroma has some subtle hops and is bit sweet together with some fruits. Pours dark orange with a rich white head. Taste is very hoppy and has taste of fruits, citrus and grape fruit. Palate has a fresh zing and a sweet feeling. Overall a surprisingly fresh beer.

Fruity, floral nose. Citrusy, hoppy, sweet caramel, bread loaf, and toffee for flavors. Pretty good. Nice, well balanced mouthfeel.
