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.

Light amber color. Hoppy aroma, fruity, very nice. Good malty flavor, with sticky sugars, good body, and a powerful hopping, aromatic and resiny, a bit fruity too. Very good, especially for being a low gravity one.

Bottle, 2005-11-05, 7-4-6-3-13=33
Golden to light amber color. Beautiful fruity hoppy aroma. Weaker body than expected, some sweetness, quite bitter and aromatic but not aggressive. Mild American IPA.

I’ve been drinking some great IPAs recently and this offering from Goose Island stands of reasonably well. I had it tap at the Waterstone Grill on Stone St. in NYC. A nice light red coloring and a subtle, fine head. Mild aroma of citrus and pine from the hops. Taste reinforced the hop sensation with a slight bitterness and a smooth finish. Aftertaste seemed to be a little off but I’ll bet it was the tap and not the beer per se. Overall a tasty beer and highly drinkable.

harrisoni (16932) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 14, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2007 Bottle from Utobeer. Copper colour with thin white head. Nicely aromatic US hop aroma, with a cross between grapefruit and tea. Fine in mouth, bit lacking in structure and malt balance, but hey. Finish is unsurprisingly zingy and hoppy with grapefruit and more tea. I mean yeah, it’s nice. Difficult to get a character in a beer so richly hopped 3.6/5 Re-rate 11/07/07 Bottle at Brew Wharf, Borough. Lovely beer. Lovely grapefruit hop aroma and excellent bitterness on finish. Really impressed.

Bottle share with JF on Southampton beer up - 09/09/12. Pale golden with a large frothy white head. Nose consists of pine, hops, caramel and citrus. Taste comprises caramel malts, grapefruit, toffee. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a smooth finish. First time I’d had this since a visit to Clybourn in ’05 - forgotton what a decent no frills IPA it is!

Koelschtrinker (16443) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Sehr hopfiger Geruch, dazu etwas süßlich. Stark hopfiger Antrunk, unterstützt durch eine würzig-süße Note. Im Mittelteil lässt das Aroma keinesfalls nach, die Hopfigkeit ist auf konstant hohem Level, auch der süße Ton bleibt bestehen. Die ausgeprägte Hopfigkeit zieht deutlich zu erkennen eine bittere Spur hinter sich her, die im Nachgeschmack, nach abklingen der Hopfigkeit, deutlich stärker wird. Auch die Würzigkeit wird kurzzeitig stärker. Solch ein aromenstarkes Bier bei 5% - hat schon was! Test vom 11.6.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,11,11,8,12 - 11,50

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2008 Bottle. Tested on Best before-date. A golden/copper beer with a nice white head. Gorgeous grapefruity aroma with hints of pine resin. The taste is balanced, but a little thin to my preference, with a long light bitter aftertaste. Nice mouthfeel. Rating: 8-4-7-3-15-3.7(050913)

Bottle. Since my first sample of this beer, September 2005, I’ve had it on several occasions, but as it seems it will disappear from the Norwegian market, I had to give it one more try. It’s a refreshing and fruity beer with a nice hop profile, and it’s far from extreme, making it rather drinkable. It pours a nice, orange-golden body with a rather small off-white head leaving some fine curtains of foam on the glass. It’s aroma is dominated by citrusy hops, with pine and resin as well. The maltyness is quite subdued, but sweetness and a bready note is detectable in the background. Flavorwise it’s much the same, the fruity hops with it’s pine and resin do most of the job, but the bready, sweet maltyness is doing its part as well. Quite full-bodied it is, and a bit sticky on the palate. In the finish, the malty flavors is even more subdued, leaving more room for bitterness, and of course there’s a lot of fruits, pine and resin too. It’s still a yummy beer, I sure hope it don’t disappear from the already starved Norwegian market. (080214)
