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 (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.

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

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Older bottle. Pours golden with a thin white head. Decent hop aroma, floral, citrus and soapy with a good malt background. Taste is more malty than I would’ve thought, decent floral/citrus hop taste, but not enough for my taste. Some nice caramel notes in the finish. Medium body, a little carbonation.

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.

OwainTurner (425) - Leicester, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2013
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.

langeveld12 (424) - 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

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.
