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.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2006 This is better than GIís Impy IPA that cost almost $5 a bottle. This inexpensive brew is better than many higher priced IPAís. Many faint notes come together nicely-- nothing is overplayed and I leaves you guessing and wanting more. Lime/orange tea. More herbs/spices than most. Maybe banana or pear.

Thought this one was great. Nice and affordable as others have said, and along those lines as well it is also moderate in alcohol. Iíd imagine I could drink a six pack of this stuff and neither tire of it or be too off kilter. Thatís hard to find. But onto the beer. Bright citrus bouquet of hops--orange, flowers, and lemony. The color is bright orange and not at all amber. There was a very full mouthfeel that was nice, considering this beerís small footprint. I wish more places sold this one. This is the stuff go-to beers are made of.

Hazy. Good Head. You could smell pine but do not taste it.. Tastes sweet and lightly hoppy. Real easy to drink Good One.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 1, 2010
On tap at Elephant & Castle in Chicago. Pours a clear orange straw color. Big white head with very good retention. Wonderful aroma of piney hops. Flavor is grass and earthy hops, but with a hint of toffee sweetness and roasted grains. Medium mouthfeel and lingering floral hop finish. Nice.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - AUG 1, 2002
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2003 Rerate:Too generous first time. Bottle conditioned but you cant't tell except for the bubbles on the head. Pours highly carbonated but minimal,milky,lacey head.The head is quality but small. Aroma straight fruity,piney.Taste is very BITTER. There might be malts their but I can't tell.EXREMELY drinkable.Full flavored till the end but not a knockout. This beer is barely balanced.This will satisfy any hop craving.

jvmiller (558) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2008
A solid IPA. The hop complexity is low, but its not thin, for sure. There is a solid bitter presence as a backbone, which I appreciate. Could use some more aroma hops. Overall, its pretty well balanced and drinkable. Nothing offensive I can find about it. Enjoyable.

flemdawg (558) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2013
A great IPA. Clear yellowish orange body with a long lasting rocky head of small white bubbles. Piney aroma with some citrus rinds. Bitter hop flavors with a balance of sweet malts. Lingering bitterness and easy to sip. Glad this is now available in Florida.

thooper41 (556) - BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
12 oz bottle: Appearance is golden brown with minimal off white head. Aroma is of floral hops. Taste is a concoction of floral and citrus hops with a nice malt backbone.

Bottle - Amber Gold in colour. Very Fruity; citrus grapefruit and tangerines. Very Hoppy; piney resinous and spicy peppery hops. Malty backbone; caramel, buttery malt base. Good fruit/hop/malt balance. Rather salty. Moderately bitter citrus fruity hoppy throughout. Dry finish. Very refreshing. Nice IPA!
