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 loverís 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 youíll remember.

Bottle acquired in trade with Ughsmash. Poured a medium and hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of stronger pine with some grapefruit. Tastes of citrus and pine. Has a light sweetness to it in addition to the bitterness.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2008 Bottle. Pours a nice clear amber color with little head. Smells of hops, citrus, and pine. Taste of hops that dominate the flavor leaving the malt to clean up in the finish. Very smooth and drinkable and leaves you smacking your lips in the finish from all that hoppy bitterness. The hops are so floral and remind me of Cascade but Iím not sure if thatís whatís inside this wonderful IPA.

Ughsmash (7387) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 12, 2005
Poured a clear amber with a moderate white head. Good lacing. Aroma was citrus fruit with some pine notes. Not as pervasive an aroma as I would like. Light-to-medium malt backbone, with a citrus hoppiness providing much of the flavor (mildly spicy, too). Very smooth mouthfeel, and quite easy to drink. Medium, pleasant hop finish.

FoolishMortal (990) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Clear red gold amber with a medium sized white head. Citrus and floral hop aromatics. Pleasing bitter and citrus hop flavors complemented by an equally present hop sweetness. Rather malty finish. Mouthfeel is medium light, somewhat sticky.

stoutchap (421) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2005
Pours a light clear amber with a decent off-white bubbly head which dissipates quickly and leaves some lacing. Somewhat citrus nose, decent amount of hops - long finish. Light mouthfeel, refreshing. Nice summer drink.

Tom Servo (424) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2005
A little disappointing in the hop department. Has a slightly bitter nose, very biting. The malt is apparent in the aroma. Nice amber coloring, slightly hazy. Flavor is nice and balanced, which is nice for most, though I prefer more hop profile, hence my disappointment. Smooth finish, with a touch of fruit (citrus) at the end. Overall, not my preferred IPA, but I wouldnít turn it down.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 21, 2005
Bottle. Pours a hazy reddish copper, rocky head. Woody and mild spicy hop nose, mild alcohol. Pleasant toffee and resin hop start to the beer and finishes dry with a spicy lingering hop flavor. Some metallic notes in the finish. Medium body, Medium driankability. "Second 6er on the cincy trip."

madcow75 (426) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2006
Older bottle. Pours golden with a thin white head. Decent hop aroma, floral, citrus and soapy with a good malt background. Taste is more malty than I wouldíve thought, decent floral/citrus hop taste, but not enough for my taste. Some nice caramel notes in the finish. Medium body, a little carbonation.

PilsnerPeter (3030) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Slightly hazy orange golden with white head. The aroma is a bit spicy, with citrus hops predominating. The aroma suggests bitter spicyness, yet itís somewhat sweet for an IPA. Honeyish malt backbone with a subtle orangey light hop finish. Nice IPA, yet the bitterness is very low and the sweetness may be almost too much considering itís low dryness. But itís still a nice IPA.
