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.

A great IPA. Clear yellowish orange body with a long lasting rocky head of small white bubbles. Piney aroma with some citrus rinds. Bitter hop flavors with a balance of sweet malts. Lingering bitterness and easy to sip. Glad this is now available in Florida.

rdb84 (558) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2015
Golden amber color with modest white head. A: nice IPA, with a perfect balance between lemon and exotic fruits. Faint apple juice note. No extreme highs, just a nice blend. T: as expected, relatively bitter with some very distinct wood and floral notes. Bitterness that hits the palate first is apple, and bitter from exotic fruits. Floral notes follow, mostly rose water. After yeast deposit, the beer gets a bit of a doughy character (as opposed to a very crisp beer before the yeast). Bitterness abates relatively quickly, a fruity aftertaste is left.

A solid IPA. The hop complexity is low, but its not thin, for sure. There is a solid bitter presence as a backbone, which I appreciate. Could use some more aroma hops. Overall, its pretty well balanced and drinkable. Nothing offensive I can find about it. Enjoyable.

thooper41 (556) - BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
12 oz bottle: Appearance is golden brown with minimal off white head. Aroma is of floral hops. Taste is a concoction of floral and citrus hops with a nice malt backbone.

john44 (556) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle - Amber Gold in colour. Very Fruity; citrus grapefruit and tangerines. Very Hoppy; piney resinous and spicy peppery hops. Malty backbone; caramel, buttery malt base. Good fruit/hop/malt balance. Rather salty. Moderately bitter citrus fruity hoppy throughout. Dry finish. Very refreshing. Nice IPA!

allfreej (555) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottled. Poured clear and golden with a fine, off-white head. Citrus, floral aroma. Flavor is citrus (grapefruit), pine, caramel, and floral. Finish is nicely hoppy. Medium mouthfeel with low carbonation.

ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 24, 2007
Yellow-amber colored with a thick off-white head. Lots of citrus in the nose. Grapefruit twinged bitterness is accompanied by a toasted malt and caramel. A nicely balanced IPA, but it won’t be your cup of tea if you are looking for a West Coast hop-bomb.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 A good answer to the question, ’What do hops taste like?’. Piney, grassy, citrusy, the aroma is the best part of this beer. Flavor is all hops without much else to get in the way. Will satisfy any hop craving.

Got a 6 of this while visiting my brother in Chicago. Filled with strong hops (if not a little artificial). A very good beer for its price.
