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.

Really aromatic. Floral and citrusy hops. Gold with a nice white head from bottle into a tulip glass. Unfortunately the flavor is just bitter. Being a beer not terribly malty, it’s not a great balance and on the thinner side. Way too bitter to be sessionable for me.

Draught at an airport restaurant. The beer is a good and reliable ipa: no surprises and all good. There’s sweetness in the taste in addition to the bitterness of the hops.

zombywoof (460) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 13, 2006
Pale and hazy. Spruce and hops in the aroma-very pronounced. The flavor is quite tasty orange, malt, and nuts nicely balanced. Has none of that soapy quality that IPAs usually have- a big plus for me. Bitter but just in the right amount so that it doesn’t overwhelm the overall effect. Beat me hurt me force me to write bad checks-I like this IPA.

From notes, O’Caseys, Manhattan, 6-7-14. On Tap, Poured slightly hazy golden. Aroma of flowers, lemon. Taste is nicely balanced between the sweet malt and bitter hops. Light body, smooth, nice light small bubble carbonation. Finishes with hints of oranges, lemon zest and herbs. Very nice!

Bathory (458) - Kverneland, NORWAY - JUL 9, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Aroma of peach, citrus, mango floral and grass. Taste is very fruity, with the citrus, peach and some pineapple. Is it amarillo-hops in this one maybe? Medium body wich fits the beer very good. Soft carbonation. The aftertaste is very hoppy, american style. Really refreshing, but also with a lot of flavour. Fantastic good IPA, maybe my favorite accually. Recommended!

On tap @ Applebees. Pours a dirty amber with a nice head of white foam. Aroma is of light pine with some citrus. Taste is very crisp and refreshing. Light pine with some semi-sweet citrus. Not harsh or bitter at all. Very enjoyable. Not what I expected from an IPA. Was great with a spicy meal.

Golden and clear, good head. Fresh aroma of citrus. Sugary taste with a bitter kick. Good hoppy flavor throughout.
