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.

kdm1984 (624) - Missouri, USA - APR 13, 2012
Pours to a golden color and decent head/lacing. Smells piney but tastes much more smooth than that - good hops kick, yet balanced, with a lemony after-flavor I haven’t noticed much in other IPAs. Malts figure in the finish as well. Quite refreshing.

EspK (7) - Trondheim, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2012 does not count
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Shows a deep golden color, pretty much like a typical pale/blonde ale. Clear. Fruity, apricots on the nose. Soft, lovely spicy hop aroma. Taking a decent sip, it tastes biscuity at first. Lovely hops shows up, but not much citrus, more spicy/earty/grassy-like. Soft and a moderately sweet malts settles together with peaches in the middle. Not the most bitter, neither the driest IPA I’ve had, but the beer is still fully giving and balanced for the style. The biscuit-malty - spice-hoppy marriage works very well and the fruitiness is not appearing entirely within the typical american IPA hop fruitiness-frame. I guess it has something to do with the use of mostly english-origin hops, and that a certain amout of the fruitiness in this beer may be yeast-derived (though I don’t know which yeast they use). Not typically IPA-bitter in the finish either, actually a bit sweet. Still, more than a pale ale. Good.
