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.

Zekada (174) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle from beermerchants.com. Aroma has some subtle hops and is bit sweet together with some fruits. Pours dark orange with a rich white head. Taste is very hoppy and has taste of fruits, citrus and grape fruit. Palate has a fresh zing and a sweet feeling. Overall a surprisingly fresh beer.

strong hops in the aroma. Nice crisp taste of hops but had a slight metallic finish. Disappointing end to what should have been a very good beer.

Bottle at Midway Airport. Drank it right from the bottle. Tastes more like a PA than an IPA but balanced well. ----Hophaze out

kustie (172) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2014
A golden beer with a nice hoppy aroma. The white head lasts long. Taste is also hoppy and a bit bitter but not so strong for an Indian pale ale. Good aftertaste with some hints of fruits and citrus. Well balanced session beer.

Pours pale golden with a clear head. plenty of bubbles with a lovely sweet aroma of exotic fruits. Taste is pure hops, plenty of dry bitterness, and not at all sweet. long bitter finish tops things off. not massive depth of flavour, just loads of mad hoppyness! quite liked this one..

355 ml fra Vinmonopolet. Fyldig ravfarve med hvitt godt skum. Aroma av tropiske frukter. Veldig fruktig smak med med middels bitterhet og litt sødme. God ettersmak. (Munkegata, 08.05.13)

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2005
Well this beer comes highly recommended to me. The beer pours orangish amber in color with ample light beige head. The aroma is a nice balance of floral hops, caramel malt, and fruity yeast. The flavor is upfront bitterness followed by a solid caramel toffee sweetness and a lingering hop finish. This is what an IPA should be hoppy and balanced, and thusly very drinkable.

WolfsBlood84 (172) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2007
12 oz. Bottle - Pours a golden yellowish with tons of fluffy off-white head. Smell is strong of hops, citrus, more fruit. Taste is similar starting citrusy sweet hoppy and quickly moves to the bittering aftertaste. Not the best IPA I’ve ever had - but one of the best easily attainable for cheap.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 22, 2005
On tap. Aroma of fresh hops. A really hoppy, in the citrusy and grassy way, IPA. Maybe not very well balanced, but since i really enjoy hoppy beers, this one really rocks my socks. Some malt in the finish but otherwise, its a little off balance.

My favorite out of the bottle although tasted at Clyborn Brewpub. Goilden with a heavy white head. English malt is very pronounced and nicely paired with american hops (goldings and centenials perhaps). Fairly bitter with a floral and pine nose. I like this IPA
