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.

Fair. Nothing special here. Although it is easy to drink. The hops are more subtle, so it might be a good started IPA for some. Plus, it’s beer and beer is good. Aroma is somewhat underwhelming, and the taste is somewhat better then where the aroma leads you...a dollar or two more would probably get you something awesome, though...

Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head with good retention. Smells like some floral and citrus fruit. Taste is bitter and lite sweet malt with a medium to light body. this is just a regular IPA

Grumbo (858) - Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle bought at a convenience store near Euston Station, London. Pours a pale golden colour with a firm and lasting white head. Aroma of hops, sweetcorn, caramel, fruit with a hint of cabbage. Medium sweetness, starts with a good level of hoppy bitterness which diminishes over time. Body is medium, texture sticky, average carbonation. Finish is sweet, sticky, with decent level of bitterness remaining. Enjoyed his beer.

It pours a copper color with some head and lacing. The aroma is hops and some citrus. The taste is the same. It’s a solid IPA. There are no surprises here.

Crisp citrus smell, taste is similar, starts crisp and citrusy then the hops kick in and then mellow away...medium hops strength, no malt ..yet not bad, not too bitter but gets more bitter with time

paulvanpelt (387) - Reusel, NETHERLANDS - JUN 24, 2015
Een helder, goudkleurig bier met witte kraag. Aroma hoppig en bittere smaak zoals je van een IPA verwacht. Verder weinig complex of bijzonder en een beetje waterig. Mwah.

rdb84 (300) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2015
Golden amber color with modest white head. A: nice IPA, with a perfect balance between lemon and exotic fruits. Faint apple juice note. No extreme highs, just a nice blend. T: as expected, relatively bitter with some very distinct wood and floral notes. Bitterness that hits the palate first is apple, and bitter from exotic fruits. Floral notes follow, mostly rose water. After yeast deposit, the beer gets a bit of a doughy character (as opposed to a very crisp beer before the yeast). Bitterness abates relatively quickly, a fruity aftertaste is left.

33 cl bottle @ home. Clear yellow orange beer, minimal white head. Hoppy aroma with citrus, orange, lemon. Bitter taste, mingled with some fruity sweetness, long and dry hoppy aftertaste.

Have had this on tap several times - usually pretty easy to find in MN. Enjoyable crisp tasting IPA with a nice dry bitter finish.
