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.

On tap at Goose Island Clybourn. A very nice IPA. Gold body with a good white head. Aroma of hops and citrus, a bit of sweetness. Flavor is hoppy and citrusy, very light and refreshing with just that touch of sweetness.

Not bad. Kind of reminds me of Bell’s Two Hearted Ale excepted maybe a little sweeter. Lots of cascade hops. Eggshell head and orange looking. Decent.

cblado (232) - Washington, USA - OCT 16, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice goldenrod color, nice pearly head with good lacing. Aroma is a bitter hops, some spices. Flavor is hoppy, and ends on a musty note with currants. All in all it’s an okay IPA, not quite enough flavor for me, however.

Appetizing golden hue. Taste is moderate hops and light fruit. A decent standard IPA.

thill25 (231) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2011
12 oz bottled on 09/21/10...poured golden yellow with a slight orange hue, nice head retention, white and fluffy...aroma of citrus, pine, caramel...medium bodied beer (light for an IPA), average carbonation, with a slight bitter finish. Overall, just a straight forward well balanced IPA that I enjoyed quite a bit.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2004
This was an ok IPA. It could be well improved with a little more hops. Overall, pale with a mild flavor. Drunk with other styles of beer, seems nice. Does not stand up as well to other IPAs though.

Bottle. Aroma is Piney hops, grapefruit and orange sherbet. Appearance is golden amber with little carbonation. The Taste is doing the same as the aroma but more of that orange sherbet followed by a soft bitterness. Light body and feels quite slick. Really good.

Graham77 (228) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 355ml bottle. Cloudy orange colour with a lovely smooth white head. Strong floral, fruity hop aroma. The flavour has a lot of fruity sweetness, maybe some orange but with a nice bitter IPA finish. Lots of hops with a spicy quality and by no means overly bitter. Re-rated down as not as good as last time I drank it.

Very good IPA. One of the first few IPA’s I ever had when just starting out trying new craft beers. Still one of the best I have ever had.
