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.

12oz. bottle - pours lightly cloudy, pale gold with a bone white head. Aroma is typically citrusy for an American IPA, but with a dose of sweet malt as well. Smells balanced. Flavour...tastes balanced as well. Fresh orangey hops, caramel malt, some earthy notes, all leading towards a mildly bitter finish. Classic IPA, in the English character/tradition. Certainly not a US hop bomb. Finish is actually quite sweet, presumably coming from the malts. Nice stuff, very drinkable.

12 oz bottle. Golden pour with a white head. Super hoppy from start to finish. Hard to taste much over the bitter. Not one I would try again.

Stoned99 (315) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2015
On tap at BierMarkt Montreal. Aroma: peaches, citrus, orange zest, spices. App: clear copper with medium white head and some lacing. Taste and palate: medium creamy body, clean, light medium dry bitter finish. Overall: a great beer on tap. Love the peaches attack. Would like it to be more piney and less clean but overall this is really a good surprise.

Tap, bottle, this is common in central Iowa. A velvety, medium full body, just the right touch on the palate. Hops are smooth, with an even balance between bitterness, flavor, and aroma. A fine IPA, and one I like to enjoy regularly.

Bottle. Nice copper color with a fluffy white head that lasted and left a nice lacing. Wonderful hoppy aroma. Superb flavor of malt, with a touch of sweetness, dominated but, not overly so, by the floral hop flavor. Excellent mouthfeel makes this beer a keeper

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 6, 2007
I have always really liked this beer. Locally grown and available year round, it doesnt get any better than this as a fallback. Wish I could find it on tap more often. It may be a little thinner, but it has no trace of that medicine flavor that dogs down the style. Crisp and very refreshing, even more so since lately I am on a winter beer kick.

Lightrider (311) - Bristol, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Bottle into an ale glass. Pour is a honey color with a fine white head. Aroma is grass and hop. Taste is a crisp hop bitter citrus. Finish is a nice warm wash.

bbrock81 (310) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - MAY 6, 2005
Aroma is strong hops and pine, with some citrus floating in and out. Appearance is translucent copper, with a pure white head that dissipates very fast. The flavor is hops, hops, and more hops. Enters strongly bitter, with those hops and their pine flavors dominating the slight maltiness that comes through. The bitter finish stays on the back of your tongue long you swallow the beer. Good for the style, but a little too one-dimensional for me. I would have liked more malt to come through in the flavor, and the finish is just too bitter for my tastes.
