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.

Rasmus40 (13808) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2011
Hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel and hoppy - grapefruit and peach. Flavor is rather sweet and rather bitter. Finish is nicely, lasting bitter and dry. Very good IPA. 181010

Oakes (13537) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2000
UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 Bottle rating (April 2005): Golden colour. Arom is deep hops. Cleansing bitterness, woody, slightly oxidized. Flavours are rather blunt - needs a punch of pale malt or a slap of citrus to come alive.

Tap rating (from March 2000):
Fantastic aroma with big American hops. But they serve this on nitrogen and that just makes the flavours collapse into a jumbled mess. Probably much better on bottle/cask/CO2. Ar 8; Ap 2; F 3; P 2; O 6

brokensail (13227) - Orange County, California, USA - MAR 8, 2011
A: The beer pours a surprisingly hazy orange color with a finger of white head that has pretty poor retention. S: Smells fairly sweet, but mostly of sweet citrus fruit such as orange and perhaps kumquat. Toasted grain and malt with a bit of bread and toffee to go along with it. Some mild grassy and floral hop notes, too. T: Sweet just like the nose. Bread and caramel with some sweet orange and orange peel. Slightly bitter with maybe just a hint of pine. Some more of those floral and slightly earthy hop notes to it. M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation. D: Not what I’m really accustomed to with the American IPA being my weapon of choice for the broader style. Not awful, though.

Theydon_Bois (12709) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
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 (12645) - 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

12 oz. bottle; bottled on 02/23/08. Nice citrus aroma. Golden amber color with a beige head. Medium body with mild, slightly fizzy, carbonation. Flavor is a lot of citrus and/or grapefruit hop over some light caramel. Good stuff. Nice bitter finish. Some floral aspects develop as time progresses.
