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.

On tap. Pours a nice medium amber color. Aroma is hoppy citrus, flavor is decently hoppy but nicely balanced. Not overpowering. Pretty solid IPA

JorgeLee (1265) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2012
Bottle from Sainsburys. Bright orange colour with thick tight head, produced splendid lacing, looked exceptional. Quite mild in flavour as American IPAs go, an almost creamy malt and pine hop flavour. Well balanced and drinkable, rather than an assault on tastebuds. Pleasant.

Draft at Proof. Clear golden pour with a small white head. Aroma of fruity, piney hops with lighter pale malt backing. Flavor is similar throughout with mellower flavors and a mild bitter ending. Not bad.

Clear amber with a soapy off-white head. Aroma of citrus and pale malt. Decent bitterness and clean malt flavor. Medium bodied. Kind of plain, but good beer.

I can’t believe I haven’t had this before. I must have, pre RB. Who knew? Today has been all about The Drips, The Distillers, a Black Sabbath t-shirt and Iron Man 2. All good, although I reserve judgement on the film as it has only just started. Russian prison tattoos, gotta love them. If I’d rated this back when I started, all those weeks ago it would probably have scored higher, but there’s some great IPAs out there. This one is good.

Nice golden color with a slight foam head and medium lacing. Mild hop smell with a fruity tint. Taste like light citrus with a cream finish. Good tasting IPA nothing special.

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
