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.

I first tried this at a live theater, on tap, from a plastic cup. I was pleasantly surprised. Next time from a bottle with a proper glass, deep golden,off white head. I like the strong hops. I have a friend bring me a 6pk whenever he visits from Naperville, IL.

On tap at Hyatt Downtown Very nice appearance and great head retention. NIce hop aroma, but could be more evident. Very hoppy taste, citrusy with grapefruit accent. Bitterness well balanced with malt.

This was the first American IPA I ever tried and over here along with Sierra Nevada APAitís one of the most easily obtainable good American beers. It pours. It pours with a minimal off white head and has a dark golden amber colour. The smell is floral hops and citrus with pine. The taste is very good indeed initially citrus and pineapplewhich stays with you as mild sweet malt flavours enter before the dry refreshing hops add the bitterness which stays throughout the finish. It is very very drinkable and I would definitely suggest this as a good first IPA for people to try, whilst for me personally itís one I think I will always come back to.

Poured from a bottle. Aromas of pancake syrup and old bong water. Golden color with a white head. Sticky-sweet flavor with a bit of piney hop aftertaste. This is one of the worst IPAs Iíve ever had.

Had this in NYC, at Joshua Tree bar, I was surprised this was so good. It pours gold color, decent head. It had floral, caramel aroma, slightly bitter hoppy tones in the taste. A smooth beer overall, I would drink this regularly on tap.

Dedoulequeen07 (135) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2007
Bottle. This is a very sessionable crisp, fantastically hopped beer. Is bronzy orange in colour with a nice white had givig good lacing. Aroma is of grapefruit, pine, grassy hops and slight orange/citrus peel. Reminds me a bit of of sweute in mincemeat with fern leaves. Light with adeuqate grassy cirtusy hops and grainy malt. Good medium body with refreshing carbonation. Very nice ipa

Pours a light amber color with light head and medium lacing. Fruity aroma with a bit of hops but misleading as there is a bitter note to this beer that overtakes all other flavor that I personally donít care for.
