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.

From the bottle. Cloudy golden pour with fine head. Sour citrus with floral hints. Long bitter finish. High carbonation, perhaps a little too gassy. Not a session beer but overall very nice.

aroma: sharp grapefruit aroma appearance: golden amber with a nice head with some decent lacing taste: crisp bitterness palate: somewhat creamy mouthfeel but has a nice bitter aftertaste overall: decent IPA. I was happy to see it out East after enjoying it in Wrigleyville a few years ago.

OwainTurner (422) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2013
Bottle in WS, somewhere in London. Pours golden, with fine bubbles. Aroma of mixed fruit and hops. Wonderfully refreshing fruity taste. Not overly hop bitter. One of the best IPAs I’ve tasted. Very nice indeed.

Often the best beer available at bars, but nothing special. Pretty generic IPA.

stoutchap (421) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Pours a light clear amber with a decent off-white bubbly head which dissipates quickly and leaves some lacing. Somewhat citrus nose, decent amount of hops - long finish. Light mouthfeel, refreshing. Nice summer drink.

FunkyF (420) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
Flaska från Savieur-biere. Ljusgul med fluffigt vitt skum. Söt doft med karamell och jord. Lättdrucken men obefintlig fruktighet tyvärr. En besvikelse.

jd543 (419) - SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2013
Clear golden colour with little in the way of a white head. Mild hop/malt aroma. More malty flavour than a lot of other ipas. Little in the way of different flavours or palate to excite me...

verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Light, clear copper body with a small white head. Aroma is citrus and freshly cut grass. Taste is pleasantly bitter, with oranges and lemons. Good session IPA and a great value.

CEZ (405) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 21, 2006
Amber body, nice white head, slightly hazy, low carbonation. Intense floral, herbal and perfume notes in the aroma; traces of yeast in the background. Taste is mildly sweet (caramel, licorice) beautifully, balanced by a strong nutty, resiny and dry hops profile, and followed by a very long and pleasant finish, definitely bitter. Not an extreme IPA but a very well balanced and addictive brew.
