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.

evergreen0199 (2013) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2009
Bottle from Wholefoods in Kensington, London. Amber pour with a smallish head. Pleasant aroma of hops and citrus fruit. Quite bitter, fruity, hoppy. Nicely balanced IPA. Not as complex as some but fine for an IPA and good value.

a good but not great ipa - a little bit of sourness and that chalkiness you get really bad in porters - but nice hoppiness - could be sweeter, but probably not unless it was also hoppier and more alcoholic - I think I just like my ipas a bit more bigger in every way.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Bottle Pours a yellowish copper with a good white head. The head lasts well and laced okay. Has a good hoppy aroma of citrus, pine, and floral. The carbination is good. Flavor is good hoppy but not over the top. Has an oily texture. The body is light to medium. Not a bad finish and a good aftertaste. Not a super harsh IPA but real drinkable.
