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.

The appearance is nothing special but fairly standard for the style. Frothy white head on an amber body. Aroma is dominated by the floral /citrus aroma. The taste however is supported by a nice malt backbone for an IPA. Mouthfeel is nice and buttery. I like this beer and would add it to my repurchase list. Give this one a shot.

On tap at Wrigleyville. Pours translucent orange with a foamy white head. Has all the standard IPA stuff going on...pine, citrus, etc. Had a nice bite on the finish. Itís not going to turn any heads but it is a fine example of a "normal" IPA.

Fruity and grassy hops in the nose. Nice malty taste quickly followed by the dry bitterness.

Pours a medium golden color with a nice white head that doesnít go down too fast. Aroma of hops, citrus and pine. Maybe a bit of hay as well. Crisp in the mouth. Nice flavor of hops, though not too bitter, and a bit of pine. This is an easy drinking IPA that isnít overpowering in flavor or smell but goes down easy.

Iíve never heard of this Yank brewery before, but supposedly itís well acclaimed and I can understand why. A very nice pale ale. Tastes absolutely nothing like an IPA (in the proper English non-bastardised sense), which it purports to be. Light amber in colour and very bitter sweet. Very spicy in taste - almost something of a Belgian there. Very enjoyable!

Pours a golden yellow color with a small white head. Nice caramel malt and citrus hop aromas. Nice bitter grapefruit/citrus hop bite and nice bitter finish. Nicely balanced.

Turboninja (468) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2015
Bottle@hotel, from Food Emporium, NYC, USA. Medium fresh bit sweet aroma of citrus and fruits. Golden color with medium white head and slightly hazy liquid. Medium/light taste with citrus, hops and some hoppy malts. Medium balanced with medium taste spectrum and medium hoppy aftertaste of malts. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall refreshing though very simple product. Citrus is implemented quite well.

Orangey pour. Big rush of hops right off the bat, but the aromas seem to blow off over time. Mild malty backbone coated with piney hops. Thin bodied. Very similar to the Hopscotch, but the APA seemed fresher.
