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.

For me, I would describe this as a moderate hops ad alcohol beer, but it does have a full flavored mouth feel. Pretty decent.

Pours a nice golden color with a 1 finger head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and a bit of grass. Flavor matches aroma with the addition of some sweet notes from the malt.

JStax (2960) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Draft pour. Pours a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is big pine and grapefruit pith. The taste is fairly bitter and just a touch sweet. Highly carbonated. Spritzy mouthfeel. On the lighter side for an IPA.

Lots of flavour, as you would expect from an American IPA. The nose and flavour were quite sweet fruity, and full of lychees and pine. The finish dries out a bit aswell, which definitely makes a bit more bearable. A good beer.

This is good beer, just not great beer. If it weren't for all the truly outstanding IPAs I've had lately, I would probably be excited by this IPA. The aroma is hops, not in huge amounts, but pleasent all the same. Beer pours dark golden with nice thick head. The head is retained throughout and there is heavy lacing. Flavor is good, nice hop bitterness, but it seems to play out a bit too soon. I also think this IPA lacks a true alcohol punch.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2003
12 oz bottle pours a slightly hazy light amber with a decent head and some lace. The aroma was hoppy and slightly malty. The flavor left me wanting more from an IPA, not hoppy enough and an off flavor in the malt backbone that I can't seem to pinpoint. The palate was fine, but the flavor threw me. I won't bother again...

Dark gold color with small head. Bitter hops aroma. Kind of a flowery and bitter taste. It is not so overabundant on hops as to make you sick. A tasty IPA.
