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.

Theydon_Bois (10386) - 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!

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2009 Botella. US rating no. 400. Deep golden orange colour. Aroma of hops indeed with citrus and some ripe fruit. Very good mouthfeel. The flavour has a very pleasant fruity hoppiness with some citrus and little pine. Dry long lasting hoppy fruity finish. Nice!

Bottle. Pours lightly hazy orange with a medium, creamy off-white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is citrus and pine hops, fruity esters and biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, fruity esters and light malt with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation with low warmth.

Maria (10179) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
It is a warm golden beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of mango, citrus, peach, spruce needles and caramel. The flavour has a light sweetness and notes of fruit, mango, citrus, spruce and caramel. It is very well balanced and charmingly uncomplicated.

Bov (9904) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 1, 2008
courtesy of Toni Flükiger - pours a hazy dark orange colour, pale beige foam and a nice lace; robust flowery hoppiness with notes of cream and a touch of apricot; medium-bodied, quite oily with a moderate carbonation; solid but not aggressive bitterness; long bitter flowery finish - very good

hopscotch (9737) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle... Clear golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. The nose is very much like that of instant Lipton® iced tea with lemon. Medium toffee sweetness followed by moderate citrus peel bitterness. Medium-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Bitter-sweet and then astringent, drying finish. Kudos to Gillard for sharing the bottle!

daknole (9624) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Lightly cloudy yellowish color. Citrusy aroma dominates. Flavor is very hoppy but not crazy bitter. Decent malt bill too.

adnielsen (9550) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours a clear, yellow golden appearance with an off white head. Sweet grapefruit, orange citrusy, soft aroma. Somewhat bitter, grapefruity, orange creamy, herbal, a touch floral flavor. Again, not hard to drink but kind of lacks inspiration.
