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 lovers 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 youll remember.

New York City At Tïr na Nóg - On draught poured into a shaker, a clear amber color. When the glass arrived to my table most of the head and lacing had disappeared. Aroma was of fruity hops but not too overwhelming unfortunately it was also mixed in with perfume, I believe from the waitresses hand. Initial taste was mellow but then the flavors began to develop. As the flavors opened up you got the hint of fruitiness, maybe a raspberry or peach undertones and then the hoppiness came in. It was not overly bitter but just right. Went well with my Irish meal! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured from the bottle into a glass. A nice ale very easy to drink. Had as part of a variety pack and this was my fav of the three. A very light IPA

NDmullet (208) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JUL 18, 2002
Crisp aroma, bright and floral. Tangy, sweet, and great balance. Lovely hoppy remnants linger in my mouth long after Ive finished, which is ideal. Texture is maybe a touch thin, but this just adds to its drinkability; not really a session beer, but I could put away a sixer of this without thinking. Readily available around here, so a perfect beer for quenching my thirst for hop.

ericmc83 (207) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Hoppy aroma, as expected. Some malt in the taste. Bitter finish. Balanced. Not the best IPA that Ive had, but it tastes good. Something about it reminds me of Bells APA, but I cant pick it out. There is a taste of pine...I could taste it most heavily when I burped haha.

tompete (207) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - APR 24, 2008
Bottle. Amber with a light white medium head. Flowery hops - not as strong as I hoped. Strong lasting bitterness with minimal malt to back it up. Good full body.
