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.

Amber in color with an ample off white head. Aroma is floral and heavy hop. Flavor is slightly malt with an excellent smack of hops. Finish is somewhat dry with a smooth hops bite. An excellent brew.

gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Pours an bronzish, copper with a fluffy, pillowy white head. Very sticky lace. Nose is fresh grass, floral notes, mild lemon oils and citrus. Very crisp and clean flavor. Mild resiny pine and grapefruit pith, with a brown sugar sweetness. Oily with a fresh hoppy bite and a subtle malty backbone. Nicely palatable. Great session beer with obvious lower IBUs. Medium body. Nicely done.

ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - DEC 1, 2013
FROM NOTES: November 22, ’13. A: A simple nose of citrus and pine hop aromas with light notes of Kiwi or other tropical fruit. A: Clear orange color with a one-finger head. T: Somewhat more subtle and watery than the nose suggests. The flavors are not as strong as I would have expected but it does have a nice pine and resin aftertaste, as you would want in an IPA. P: Light in body with a mildly dry texture and a soft carbonation. O: A decent IPA, but not quite bitter enough for an IPA but still tasty.

Frahmo (316) - Idaho, USA - MAY 17, 2014
12 oz bottle. Golden pour with a white head. Super hoppy from start to finish. Hard to taste much over the bitter. Not one I would try again.

joshpiledean (316) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 30, 2010
Tap, bottle, this is common in central Iowa. A velvety, medium full body, just the right touch on the palate. Hops are smooth, with an even balance between bitterness, flavor, and aroma. A fine IPA, and one I like to enjoy regularly.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2007
12oz. bottle - pours lightly cloudy, pale gold with a bone white head. Aroma is typically citrusy for an American IPA, but with a dose of sweet malt as well. Smells balanced. Flavour...tastes balanced as well. Fresh orangey hops, caramel malt, some earthy notes, all leading towards a mildly bitter finish. Classic IPA, in the English character/tradition. Certainly not a US hop bomb. Finish is actually quite sweet, presumably coming from the malts. Nice stuff, very drinkable.

pojo41 (315) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Bottle. Nice copper color with a fluffy white head that lasted and left a nice lacing. Wonderful hoppy aroma. Superb flavor of malt, with a touch of sweetness, dominated but, not overly so, by the floral hop flavor. Excellent mouthfeel makes this beer a keeper
