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.

Bottle. Nothing particularly wrong with this. Definitely a great entry level IPA if you're trying to ease a newcomer into the style, but not all that impressive otherwise.

Flaska från Savieur-biere. Ljusgul med fluffigt vitt skum. Söt doft med karamell och jord. Lättdrucken men obefintlig fruktighet tyvärr. En besvikelse.

Very intresting, and a great beer. Fro those that enjoy this one you should also try the midway IPA. Some will like that even better

JLAudio (282) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Definitely a solid IPA. Smells quite floral and citrussy, as expected. Good hop aromas while pouring, with a nice sized head with good lacing. Taste is pretty crisp and clean, not too complex, but just enough malt to balance the choice hops. The spice is noticable, cant put my finger on it though. Nice refreshing finish, not bitter enough though. This beer needs a little more ABV, and a little more IBU’s and it would be superb

Graham77 (282) - Cumbria, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 355ml bottle. Cloudy orange colour with a lovely smooth white head. Strong floral, fruity hop aroma. The flavour has a lot of fruity sweetness, maybe some orange but with a nice bitter IPA finish. Lots of hops with a spicy quality and by no means overly bitter. Re-rated down as not as good as last time I drank it.

Pours a bright, gleaming orange color, with a big, creamy head that clings to the glass. The aroma isn’t overly skewed to the hoppy characteristics, with notes of citrus peel and pine contrasting against light bready malts. The flavor is a bit dull and earthy, although there is some bright pine character and a light bready sweetness at its base. The light, fine carbonation is nice, but there isn’t as much lingering bitterness as I expected. Overall, this is a solid but unremarkable IPA that I will gladly drink up but won’t seek out.

Markm2151 (280) - toledo, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle. Average head that was off white and fizzy. Light citrus aroma on the nose, with a medium hop taste. Overall, a well balanced beer that would serve as a good introductory ipa beer to those who are afraid of hops.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2013 Pours golden color with nice creamy head. Fruity aroma. Nice blend of hops and malt. Nice iPa without overwhelming hops.
