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.

Nephilium (1516) - Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2007
Pours a hazy light amber, with a head that fades to lacing quickly. Nice hop flavor, not too much of a finish. Decent IPA, but doesn’t compare to most of the others I’ve tried.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 19, 2007
Pours an orangey copper with a thin white head. Smells of citrus, pepper, caramel, some dough. Taste is initially bitter with peppery splashes, sweet malt and hints of citrus. Decent.

fro2218 (471) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2007
Fruity and grassy hops in the nose. Nice malty taste quickly followed by the dry bitterness.

hopscotch (10138) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle... Clear golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. The nose is very much like that of instant Lipton® iced tea with lemon. Medium toffee sweetness followed by moderate citrus peel bitterness. Medium-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Bitter-sweet and then astringent, drying finish. Kudos to Gillard for sharing the bottle!

I was looking for something to really stand out with this beer but nothing really did. It was hoppy but not nearly as hoppy as it would lead you to believe

Guerde (1221) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 18, 2008
(bottle) Pours light copper with a white head. Aroma of canned mandarin oranges and light pine. Taste is decent, with a nice balance between the sweet caramel malts and the bitter hop finish. Medium mouthfeel, not a bad IPA.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2008
Bottled at Monks Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a clear orange colour with copper hints. The foam sinks quickly. Really fresh and airy hop aroma of flowers, wet grass and dried oranges. Clean resinous, but not overly bitter flavour of orange-peels, flowers and minerals. Medium bodied. Long medium bitter finish of orangey and minerally hops. A well-balanced US IPA, well-made but lacks the bite.

evergreen0199 (2463) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2009
Bottle from Wholefoods in Kensington, London. Amber pour with a smallish head. Pleasant aroma of hops and citrus fruit. Quite bitter, fruity, hoppy. Nicely balanced IPA. Not as complex as some but fine for an IPA and good value.

walrussell (178) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 7, 2009
a good but not great ipa - a little bit of sourness and that chalkiness you get really bad in porters - but nice hoppiness - could be sweeter, but probably not unless it was also hoppier and more alcoholic - I think I just like my ipas a bit more bigger in every way.

RBESG Sheffield 2009, day 3, Smithfields Hotel, Manchester. Bottle. Light hazy golden colour, creamy white head. Aroma of toffee, fruits, hops and citrus. Flavour is sweet, fruity, caramel, sharp green hoppy finish. Medium bodied. A sweet IPA.
