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.

oakbluff (432) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 13, 2007
Bottle courtesy of Piscator34- thanks Kris! Pours out a nice light hazy orange. Slight white head and lacing. Nose is of spicy earthy hops. Taste- hops at the front of the tongue- not a huge hop bite, slightly oily, heavier on the bitter side. Bitterness slides into a solid malt backbone. Good balance- finish is woody and dry. Nice mouthfeel and good carbonation. Classice american IPA stylings. Nice combo of traditional british IPA and left coast American IPA.

acearl (432) - The Ham, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 5, 2012
12 oz bottle, slightly hazy light gold pour, big creamy white lasting head, good lacing, aroma of citrus and lets you know it will be crisp, light sweet malt, nice hop balance, on the grapefruit side, light to medium body does have that oily texture but therefore not all that complex, lowish alcohol % nice and drinkable, good for the summer to drink a few, more American than English though

TyggaBrown (430) - NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
Not too happy witht this one. Aroma contains some of the characteristics you hope for, fruity and all, but itís not well-balanced taste, and itís actually a bit thin. Refreshing, though.

keith0718 (429) - Kansas, USA - FEB 11, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Strong citrus overtones. Strong hoppy finish: bitter, yet pleasing. Not astringent Decent amount of malty body support this good IPA.
