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.

Bottle. Cloudy and amber. Orangish aroma. Malty flavor with a nice bitter finish. Very tasty and easy to put down.

Very smooth and easy to drink. Not a great deal of bitterness, although the beer was refreshing and crisp. Didnít beat me over the head with hops either. Glad I picked it up, but not something I will keep in my regular rotation.

On draft at Clybourn goose island brewpub. This was a very good IPA. Iím not a fan of IPAs usually. Little head, thin ring, light/amber color. Medium body. Semi sweet from caramel. Aroma is citrus hops and distinguished grapefruit aroma and taste. I am going to guess they used cascade and amarillo hops in this one. High citrus aroma and crips, clean, and non lingering finish.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a decent white head that disappears quickly leaving a thin ring and some lacing. Hints of pine and grass in the aroma. Taste is medium bitter and almost no sweetness. Average carbonation, light to medium body, flavors of grapefruit, maybe other citrus, no perceptible malt, medium texture and a solidly bitter finish that shows a sticky sweetness in the far finish.

I was a little dissapointed with this....I think cause it was waaaaaaaaay past its best buy date so i think some of the flavors and aroma were off. not bad though Iím sure a fresh bottle would be outstanding!

Valjuhko. Komea pullo, ihan mukava tuoksu. Kermainen ja hiivainen. Rappa kalja. Ja Santtu.

A decent enough IPA. Plenty of malt, quite pared down on the hops. Really something of a session ale, despite knocking over 5%. Easy drinking, clean finish.

On tap. Itís ok. Bright citrus flavor and aroma. Nice lacing as well. A little maltier than Iíd hoped, but still ok.

gold in color. smells like toast with orange marmalade. starts sweet and citrusy, then a bit of a bitter hop bite... but not the 'ooomph' i like in my ipas. thin palate. not offensive, not great, but very drinkable.
