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 loverís 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 youíll remember.

Not bad. Kind of reminds me of Bellís Two Hearted Ale excepted maybe a little sweeter. Lots of cascade hops. Eggshell head and orange looking. Decent.

Pours a golden color with decent head and a little lacing. Aroma reminds me of being lost in a sea of spruce trees. One of the better tasting IPAís I have ever had but it has a bitter aftertaste and it leaves a thick residue in the mouth.

Not your typical IPA but definitely exploding with hops. Very good beer.

leebotton (237) - Bristol, Somerset, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2013
Sweet malty with some fragrant hops. Rather hoppy, well balanced. Small bubbles on the palate with smooth texture

Quixote18 (236) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Bottled. Very pale copper color with soft, foamy off white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is mostly piney hops with a little bready note in it. Flavor is fairly well--balanced with pine-resin hops predominating. Nice long hoppy finish. Solid.

Dan269605 (235) - Rocky Hill, Connecticut, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Light golden body, frothy white head. Citrus aromas coming from the hops. A little malt coming through to balance the bitterness. Hops and bitterness arenít over the top. A lighter, easy drinking IPA. Definitely sessionable.

Bottle. Aroma is Piney hops, grapefruit and orange sherbet. Appearance is golden amber with little carbonation. The Taste is doing the same as the aroma but more of that orange sherbet followed by a soft bitterness. Light body and feels quite slick. Really good.

drainey (234) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2006
On tap at Goose Island Clybourn. A very nice IPA. Gold body with a good white head. Aroma of hops and citrus, a bit of sweetness. Flavor is hoppy and citrusy, very light and refreshing with just that touch of sweetness.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 21, 2012
Hazy dark blond colour. Sweet aroma with some tropical fruit. Plenty of malt softness in the flavour giving good balance against the fruity hops. Finish is creamy, fruity, dry. -Fish!

Very good IPA. One of the first few IPAís I ever had when just starting out trying new craft beers. Still one of the best I have ever had.
