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.

I have always really liked this beer. Locally grown and available year round, it doesnt get any better than this as a fallback. Wish I could find it on tap more often. It may be a little thinner, but it has no trace of that medicine flavor that dogs down the style. Crisp and very refreshing, even more so since lately I am on a winter beer kick.

Big grapefruit nose and creamy head. Taste follows in a well blended IPA. Nice bitterness and very easy drinking. Great beer.

Aroma is strong hops and pine, with some citrus floating in and out. Appearance is translucent copper, with a pure white head that dissipates very fast. The flavor is hops, hops, and more hops. Enters strongly bitter, with those hops and their pine flavors dominating the slight maltiness that comes through. The bitter finish stays on the back of your tongue long you swallow the beer. Good for the style, but a little too one-dimensional for me. I would have liked more malt to come through in the flavor, and the finish is just too bitter for my tastes.

very light in body for as hoppy as it is. moderately out of balance, bitterness stays with you a little too long.

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.

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!

FunkyF (306) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 31, 2015
Flaska från Savieur-biere. Ljusgul med fluffigt vitt skum. Söt doft med karamell och jord. Lättdrucken men obefintlig fruktighet tyvärr. En besvikelse.

Pours deep golden with a long lasting off=white head. Subdued pine scent, some metal as well. Good hop flavor with a touch of grapefruit. Decent bitterness. Another good IPA.

OzarkElmo (303) - Poplar Bluff, Missouri, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Bottle into Tulip. Good but not spectacular aroma, good color and lacing throughout. Medium-bodied; citrus & piney notes. An above average India Pale Ale. Good bitter finish and very enjoyable. One plus is it is the only IPA at our WM Supercenter, so Cheers to that when I need an IPA fix and am among the masses!
