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.

aroma: sharp grapefruit aroma appearance: golden amber with a nice head with some decent lacing taste: crisp bitterness palate: somewhat creamy mouthfeel but has a nice bitter aftertaste overall: decent IPA. I was happy to see it out East after enjoying it in Wrigleyville a few years ago.

TyggaBrown (430) - NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
Not too happy witht this one. Aroma contains some of the characteristics you hope for, fruity and all, but itís not well-balanced taste, and itís actually a bit thin. Refreshing, though.

Ulysse (429) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2014
Really fruity aroma, realized afterwards that was exactly what was advertised on their label. Fruity with maybe a hint of raspberry but still unsure. A down to earth bitterness.

langeveld12 (429) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2015
Pours an average frothy white head that slowly diminishes. Body is clear yellow orange, sparkles are visible. Aroma contains light malts (cookie, dark bread, straw), fairly strong hops (flowers, resin, grapefruit, lemon, orange zest,), moderate yeasts (soap, earth) and apple, forest fruits, cherry, pineapple and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light sweet, followed by light bitter and light acidic and finishing in bitter. Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation. A nice IPA loaded with hoppy fruits and backed up by enough malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jd543 (428) - SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2013
Clear golden colour with little in the way of a white head. Mild hop/malt aroma. More malty flavour than a lot of other ipas. Little in the way of different flavours or palate to excite me...

Zekada (427) - 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.

RateandPillage (426) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Very nice floral aroma. Pours slightly hazy and light orange. Off-white head with large bubbles fades quickly. Very good balance between malt and hops. Well carbonated and light on the palate. Maybe a bit thin. Overall a very nice IPA.

Average IPA, Iíve had this a bunch over the years and am reading it retrosprectively. Good citrus/bitter balance. Crisp and smooth to drink.
