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.

Average, not particularly robust nor lacking excessively in character, this IpA splits the middle ground on a decent brew, which, while pleasing on a nice warm afternoon, is not amazing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It had a cloudy yellow/orange color with a small head. You can definitely taste the hops. It had a nice finish.

Bottle. A good IPA, the bitterness was on the lighter end of what I feel a IPA should have, but the hops were all flavor and aroma. The initial taste there is a slight hint of coffee. I might have had a bad bottle but there was a slight taste of wet cardboard, like a oxidized beer.

A slightly hazy orange-amber color with a nice white head. Hoppy grapefruit aroma. Nice flavor, obviously it’s hoppy, some nice malt flavors as well. Nice bitter finish. Very smooth mouthfeel. I drank this A LOT in college. Now that I’ve moved to Chicago, I find myself drinking a lot once again. Overall very good, but not the best IPA.

bottle: Attractive head with some lacing. Light orange color with lots of carbonation. Heavy pine & citrus in the aroma. with some pastry. Muted spicy hop finish, but still strong and long. Entry is bready and mildly sweet. Good body. Creamy/milky all the way through.

tseo (153) - Athens, GREECE - JUL 9, 2012
Aroma: Nice and fresh. Fruit like mango, strawberries and of course orange and grapefruit. Also, some resinous elements. Mouthfeel: Medium oily body. Taste: Mmmm. Bitter and crisp. Hoppy, but on a good, balanced malt background. A lot of citrus goodness. Not as agressive as brewdogs and flying dogs:) Finish: Bitterness that lasts and lasts. Citrus notes carry on to a tannic feel. Overall: Definitely a winner. Delicious and round. Very very enjoyable indeed.

Not the best IPA around but well worth the time, lacks abit of the complexity of some of the Westies. I still love it(in the bottle, crap on tap in most places).
