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 light golden color with a frothy creamy head that stays for a while. Nice hoppy taste with a little bit of a sour hoppy after taste. I will buy this beer again.

Une de mes "bières de soif" préférée. IPA blonde légérement orangée. Bonne amertume, bon goût de houblon, relativelement légère (5.9°) : à boire en toute circonstance ! Rien d’extraordinaire mais très bien fait.

Nice sweet citrus aroma, but it dissipates quickly and turns a little oniony as it warms. A slightly astringent burnt carmel flavor is soon swallowed up by a more astringent bitterness. It’s not bad, certainly drinkable, and better than most mass market beers. But it’s not nearly balanced or any real "hop lover’s dream." There are so many more tasty choices out there; why bother?

Bottle. Pours a deep golden color and a medium white head. Citrus, hoppy aroma and a similiar tatste. A good malty balance to this IPA, smoother and sweet than other IPAs.

For a solid, everyday IPA, hard to beat.

Not a bad IPA. Seemed a little on the mellow side for an IPA. It had the characteristics of an English IPA in that the hop flavor was smooth and made way for the malt flavor. Not a typical overpowering American style IPA, but a good drink nonetheless.

whiterabbit81 (244) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Pours slightly hazy, golden brown with a smallish head. Smells distinctively of hops, with a touch of yeast. Supurbly balanced; a stong hop presence that doesn’t overwhelm. In fact, the hop seems quite in harmony with the malt, a rarity in IPAs. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this beer, but yet somehow it just doesn’t seem remarkable in any real way, either.

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

hoppy citrusy armoma -pous a slightly hazy copper orange with a white head. nice lacing on the glass- flavor is citrus and hops with a nice balance of malt - very nice flavor - this is not the best IPA but is a good one. I really enjoyed this. This is a fairly mild IPA and is very drinkable.

Pours golden with medium white head. Floral and citrus aroma. Initially a very good hops taste but it ends up a little dry and thin thus the low score in the palate catagory. It’s not bad especially for a beer I can find in Krogers but it reminds me of what IPA concentrate would taste like. Similiar to the difference between orange juice from concentrate and fresh squeezed.
