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.

Aroma is a bit piney with light hop. Taste is pretty bitter/sour and not sweet. Not balanced well. Kind of a gross hop flavor. Bleh.

Draft at the brewery. Not the strong hop taste in most good pale ales. The lightness and lack of a strong flavor does go well with the good food severed at the brewery.

scotchzombie (511) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a small white head. Aroma is sweet grass and citrus - marmalade toast. Taste is smooth and drinkable. Hopped, but not wildly. Flavors of mild citrus and some sweet malt that lingers on the palate. Very little bitterness beyond the aftertaste. This is not a hardcore IPA that will set hop-heads atwitter, but it really is quite enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2007
Murky dark orange pour with a nice white head. Not a ton of hops in the aroma, as I was expecting. Flavors were sweet with a nice hop base. Very nice dry end.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2009
Bottle. Light orange, 5cm white head, good amount of lacing. Aroma is very fruity. Mango, sweet orange, some resin and some malt sweetness. Nice. Flavour is pretty much the same notes. Body is medium to light, carb is refreshing, but not too harsh. Not complicated or exciting in any way, but a solid representation of the style. Nice and sessionable.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2013 A great old-school IPA. Very hoppy, but not very bitter. Lots of citrus notes... I could swear there is orange zest in here. Malts are dry and take a backseat to the hops. The hops are smooth up front, crisp and spicy in the middle, aromatic and lingering in the finish.

MOboy (504) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JUL 9, 2002
Damn fine American IPA. Loaded with hops, this one will not leave you disappointed. Piney aroma and a grapefruit after taste. Wonderful out of the bottle.

Sask89 (504) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - AUG 13, 2012
Pours amber in colour, clear with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Strong citrus hops and grapefruit aroma with noticeable pine scents as well. Mildly sweet with a reasonable bitterness through to the finish. Medium bodied, good carbonation, and a nice smooth feel on the palate. Strong IPA, an enjoyable brew.

On tap at Quintons. Nice and hoppy aroma, citrus lemon mostly. Came with a decent small sudsy white head, ok lacing, blonde orange in color. Taste is nothing really too crazy but good, alot of fresh citrus hop, some GI style roasty toffee-caramel type malt, good finish, slight spicy hop bite, medium to light feel. This beer will always be dear to my heart, especially in IC.
