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 loverís 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 youíll remember.

Firm hops aroma. Pretty light golden amber. Smooth for an IPA. Relies on the hops without a disctinct citrus flavor. Thought that it might have a little more kick for an IPA. But looking at it overall as a pale ale, it is very good.

For the hop lover and once again this fairytale from a basic IPA. Nice starting aroma, but not during only during. Botlle

pours a golden to slight copper color with a fluffy head and good lacing. the aroma is critrus, piney, some malt. the flavor is nice and citrus up front followed by a nice malt body and finished with almost a pineapple taste. the palate is a medium to heavier body. overall its is a nice crisp beer with a dry finish, this isnt the best i have ever had but its pretty good for being part of AB.

Pours a medium yellow-brown with a white head. Nose is hops with malt. Plate is medium thick with the luscious of malt up front and hop bitterness at the end and aftertaste, which lingers.

Pretty good IPA. It has a grapefruity taste to it.

Smells like grapefruit and pine, what a shocker. Amber with decent head. Thin mouthfeel. One dimensional malt flavor is completely dominated by citric hops. Where is this frutiness I have been hearing about? Hops won't go away, even after the glass has long been emptied. Should come with a white and black generic American IPA label on it with a caution: This beer lacks creativity or character. BTW, if you are looking for a great IPA from this region, get the Bells Two Hearted Ale listed to your right.

On tap at brewpub. A little overcarbonated in my opinion (I think it was on nitrogen, which I donít really like), and not as hoppy as I like my IPAís. Probably true to British-style IPAís, but not exactly what Iím looking for. Has a nice amberish color, reasonably hoppy nose and flavor. Nothing spectacular, but a solid IPA.

Kinnaj15 (275) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 29, 2006
Golden with dissapearing white head. Aroma is flower and hops with some sweetness. Soft taste with notes of sweetness and a nice bitter aftertaste with hints of flowers

Bottled. Good mild IPA from Goose. Decent gold/yellow color, light but fomay head. Hoppy aroma, but not over-powering. Same on taste. Good stuff.

One of my favorite IPAís and itís pretty affordable at that. Great aroma of spicy, floral and just a hint of citrusy hops. Flavor is nice and malty but balanced well with a very clean bitterness. Palate is very nice... Itís easy to put a few of these away.
