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.

This Indian pale ale has more ibu's in my opinion than 55. The finish has a nice bite to it but then drops off very nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RedSox2004 (1200) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Hazy golden amber with a nice white head and webbing. Strong malt backbone on the nose supports a citrus - mostly grapefruit - hops. Hops are more up front in the flavor profile, but the bitterness yields to a bready malt. Medium body, nice carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a crisp finish.

BW3, Dayton, draft. Mild aroma. Clear orange-copper. Nice off-white head, good lacing. Crisp, slightly fruity taste. Not at all hoppy. Not at all like an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

beerbastard (671) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 4, 2013
12oz Bottle. Golden pour with a fading head. Nose is a lite grassy with grains and some orange in the background. Mild flavors of grains, bread and grass. Balanced mix. Easy and laided back, clean. A session style beer for me.

ClassyBeagle (319) - USA - DEC 1, 2013
FROM NOTES: November 22, ’13. A: A simple nose of citrus and pine hop aromas with light notes of Kiwi or other tropical fruit. A: Clear orange color with a one-finger head. T: Somewhat more subtle and watery than the nose suggests. The flavors are not as strong as I would have expected but it does have a nice pine and resin aftertaste, as you would want in an IPA. P: Light in body with a mildly dry texture and a soft carbonation. O: A decent IPA, but not quite bitter enough for an IPA but still tasty.

ContemplateBeer (1496) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Aroma: Moderate grapefruit and caramel malt sweetness go hand in hand; very "balanced" and more typical of the IPAs that were in vogue 5+ years ago, which is by no means a bad thing. Appearance: Light gold/copper body with ideal carbonation supporting a sustained frothy white head. Nice looking beer, really. Flavor: Caramel malts up front with increasing grapefruit, which dries out most of the way toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, average/lively carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: This is a well-made beer, but just doesn’t hold up to the newer generation of IPAs. Still, I’m happy to have it out of my mother-in-law’s fridge.
