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.

Bottle in WS, somewhere in London. Pours golden, with fine bubbles. Aroma of mixed fruit and hops. Wonderfully refreshing fruity taste. Not overly hop bitter. One of the best IPAs I’ve tasted. Very nice indeed.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2005
A little disappointing in the hop department. Has a slightly bitter nose, very biting. The malt is apparent in the aroma. Nice amber coloring, slightly hazy. Flavor is nice and balanced, which is nice for most, though I prefer more hop profile, hence my disappointment. Smooth finish, with a touch of fruit (citrus) at the end. Overall, not my preferred IPA, but I wouldn’t turn it down.

stoutchap (422) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Pours a light clear amber with a decent off-white bubbly head which dissipates quickly and leaves some lacing. Somewhat citrus nose, decent amount of hops - long finish. Light mouthfeel, refreshing. Nice summer drink.

langeveld12 (418) - 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

verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2005
Light, clear copper body with a small white head. Aroma is citrus and freshly cut grass. Taste is pleasantly bitter, with oranges and lemons. Good session IPA and a great value.

CEZ (412) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 21, 2006
Amber body, nice white head, slightly hazy, low carbonation. Intense floral, herbal and perfume notes in the aroma; traces of yeast in the background. Taste is mildly sweet (caramel, licorice) beautifully, balanced by a strong nutty, resiny and dry hops profile, and followed by a very long and pleasant finish, definitely bitter. Not an extreme IPA but a very well balanced and addictive brew.
