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.

dmschefke (576) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2009
Pours a nice clear orange with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma mostly of citrus hops, slight floral, and some light fruity notes. Flavor matches well and leaves a nice hop bitterness behind. Slightly slick mouthfeel, but a nice IPA anyway.

BierMeHoos (576) - Maryland, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 12 ounce bottle. Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a white foamy head. Aroma: Earthy and spicy hop aroma, decent. Taste: Earthy hop bitterness, with a caramel sweetness and malts. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Pretty much the quintessential IPA. Very good representation.

garza (573) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - MAY 26, 2011
Pours cloudy yellow colour with an average white head that tries to disappear. Strong and nice spiced aroma, grass and fermented fruit hints. Refreshing taste, light sweetness, lightly bitter (to light in my opinion to be IPA). Medium body, oily feel, average to soft carbonation, and a short light bitter and dry after taste. Ok.

konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2010
Bottle from Vinens Verden, Odense. Best before at december 2010, but already seemed a bit old to me. Weird and quite unpleasant flavors of jelly candy, black currant, cat pee (!) and caramel. A little sweet and lacks the proper bitterness for an IPA. Should try this one again since this was probably and old or bad bottle.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - SEP 9, 2004
12oz bottle BBD020705 Nice, rich brassy color. Good head & lace...happy bubbles. Nice nose of malt & floral, citrusy, piney hops. This smells fresh. I wonder how long after bottling that date is? Light bodied. Flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. Malt is somewhat there, hop flavors are there, but not a super bold beer. It is light drinking, which hurts it a tad. Hops dominate, but bitterness not as promounced as some. Still, a lingering hop resin, citric note perists in the aftertaste. Seems more pale ale than IPA...But a good hoppy beer.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 30, 2007
Pours a light burnished copper with a loose off-white head. Light citrus spice and earth in the aroma with mild malt characteristics as well. Very earthy hops flavors--loam, dry needles--with some crisp malt notes. Light-bodied with good bitterness and a clean finish.

imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 1, 2010
Bottle. Pours somewhat clear but hazy yellow orange with near white head. Moderate amount of aroma; piney and grassy hop aromas overlying some grainy, sweet malt. Hop flavours, grassy and piney are there. Body, light-medium and simple coupled with medium-high bitterness, though not all that complex lingers through the end for a medium dry finish with a lingering hop presence. It’s all about the hops for this beer, the body takes a back seat, which is evidently a personal choice when it comes to ipa’s. Love the hop presence in this one though.

Amber coloured, nice head. Good hoppy aroma flavour is citrus and spice, better than expected.
