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.

Une de mes "bières de soif" préférée. IPA blonde légérement orangée. Bonne amertume, bon goût de houblon, relativelement légère (5.9°) : à boire en toute circonstance ! Rien d’extraordinaire mais très bien fait.

pretty solid ipa, very clean and refreshing taste. Still has a nice hop taste while not being overly strong. Not the best IPA but I’d have it again.

Bottle, into tulip. Pours amber with a white head. Great lacing. Smells of oranges and resin, sort of reminds me of a furniture shop. Tastes slightly sweet on the way in, with a resounding dry, bitter finish that leaves you licking your teeth.

TechMyst (167) - Fox River Grove, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 22, 2006 355ml bottle. Smells like sweet, Pine needles. My first IPA. Full and rich flavor. Soapy in the middle. Tastes like someone swept up after one took out the Christmas tree and made it into a beer...Slight banana taste also. Chill down a little and it is really quite nice.

Hophaze (166) - South Bend, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle at Midway Airport. Drank it right from the bottle. Tastes more like a PA than an IPA but balanced well. ----Hophaze out

Jimsal27 (164) - New York, USA - AUG 9, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Pours golden color with nice creamy head. Fruity aroma. Nice blend of hops and malt. Nice iPa without overwhelming hops.

ALCOHOLNIZM (164) - WARWICK, Alabama, USA - MAY 18, 2012
YET ANOTHER IPA IN A SEA OF IPA’S AND THIS ONE JUST DOESN’T CUT IT VASTLY OVERRATED. SLIGHTLY BITTER HOPS ARE PRESENT YET THE FLAVORS ARE SLIGHTLY OFF NOT DONE WELL ENOUGH FOR MY PREFERENCE, IF YOU HAVE A CHOICE OF THIS OR ANOTHER IPA GO THE OTHER, YET IF YOU HAVE A CHOICE OF THIS AND A LIGHT PILSNER THIS WILL DO. VERY SLIGHTLY ABOVE AVERAGE BEER FOR A MACRO BREW YET VERY BELOW AVERAGE IPA.

Pudding (163) - Birmingham, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2012
355ml bottle Waitrose. A good beer. Pillowey head.Fruity and perfumed hop.Not too bitter, with good aftertaste.

JuliusCaesar (162) - New Hampshire, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Balanced IPA. Bitter with a noticeable malt backing. God but not the best I’ve had.

walrussell (162) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2009
a good but not great ipa - a little bit of sourness and that chalkiness you get really bad in porters - but nice hoppiness - could be sweeter, but probably not unless it was also hoppier and more alcoholic - I think I just like my ipas a bit more bigger in every way.
