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.

UPDATED: AUG 22, 2015 Dark amber verging on copper. One finger of bright white head. Minimal lacing. Fairly filtered. On the nose it is a blending of citrus and pine. More of that on the palate, with some light malt in the mix. All fairly bitter. A little bit of grassiness in there too. I’d buy and drink this again.

A golden color with a white head. Aroma contains some pine, oranges, and lemons. The flavor is slightly bitter with some oranges, lemons, and tropical fruit notes. Aftertaste is bitter. Overall a nice session beer.

Pours a very thick head that lasts -- even the lacing stays up at the top of the glass forming what could be described as a Roman Aqueduct pattern. Beer has a nice light amber color too, though quite light for an IPA it does have the characteristic lack of bubbles. Malt shows through the typical floral hops in the aroma carrying with it a faint impression of tomato soup. Similarly, there are some tomato-garlic soup elements to the flavor, commendable for a beer style not known for much being able to show over the standard high floral hoppiness. The finish is more along the lines of a typical IPA in that hops come back further to the forefront. I agree that this seems more like a great pale ale than a robust IPA, but I’ll only dock it 2 overall points for this in that the beer is very satisfying in any case.

Deep golden color with a very short lived head. Great pine/citrus/floral aroma. Flavor starts with lots of citrus and pine notes. Nice malt body comes through with a bitter finish. Very nice.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2015 Pours a medium yellow-brown with a white head. Nose is hops with malt. Palate is full body with malt up front and hop bitterness at the end; aftertaste, lingers.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Pours a light amber, a bit lighter than the average IPA I would say, with a thin, quickly dissipating white head. The aroma is nice piny hops and a bit of sweet malt. The flavor is mostly bold, bitter piny hops with a sturdy backbone bone of syrupy malt. This beer isn’t quite as well balanced as the top of the line IPAs but all the right flavors are there, even if they are are blended perfectly. The mouthfeel is pretty good for the style. Overall solid, inexpensive and very sessionable.

kuphish (381) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2010
Bottle. Pours a 2", white, foamy head. Lasting and lacy. Clear, golden-orange body. Moderate hop aroma dominated by citrusy American hops. Mainly grapefruit and mandarin orange. Flavor contains white grape, pear and the aforementioned citrus. Biscuit and bready malt underneath as well as some cereal. Hops have an almost vegetal quality, but avoid being offensive. Medium body is somewhat sticky and resinous...distracting. Moderate carbonation. Overall a pretty solid beer.

Bottle from Sainsburys Team Valley. A fantastic IPA. Delicate floral and fruity flavour, but still full bodied and satisfying
