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.

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 doesnít 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.

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.

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. Itís all about the hops for this beer, the body takes a back seat, which is evidently a personal choice when it comes to ipaís. Love the hop presence in this one though.

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.

Good ipa. Drank out of bottle because I was too lazy to find a glass. 28 degrees Celsius outside, hot.

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

Hamirubi (569) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2016 Initial rating: 35.5cl bottle at home. Strong citrus and hoppy flavoured aromas coming from an amber coloured, clear lively brew with white, yellow diminishing foam on top. The nose has some creamy, vanilla and pinewood hints too. Really lovely. The taste indeed is fruity, with citrus and oranges features, but it also is very dry and high in malts. The bitterness of course masters the palate. A modest - for its really light bodied and non-complex character -, good tasting IPA from the iconic Goose Island brewery.

25cl draft from tap at De Trollekelder, Ghent (22 VII 2016). A hazy amber ale with egg white foam on top. The nose is full of wheat, hops, green grass. The taste is very, very lovely with many malts and great hops - with a long lasting bitterness in the finish. Classic, perfect.

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.
