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.

I’m not always a big fan of IPAs, but I could’t find much wrong with this. Great hops ratio and better coloring than your typical IPA. This and Samuel Smith’s are both IPAs that kind of transcend the norm.

Lightly cloudy yellowish color. Citrusy aroma dominates. Flavor is very hoppy but not crazy bitter. Decent malt bill too.

crossovert (10758) - Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
A generic IPA. This one has mild hops, and is fairly malty. It is a bit watered down imo.

Rune (10641) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2006
Bottle of 355 ml from Vinmonopolet, Norway. Pale brown. Thin head. Dominated by hops all the way through. Hoppy aroma, hoppy flavour and hoppy aftertaste - and I like it.

hopscotch (10532) - 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!

Cloudy golden with medium off white head. Hoppy aroma with citric and piney notes. Somewhat dry and hoppy flavour with piney and grapefruit notes. This one finished bitter.
