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.

Bottle. Pours a clear, clear amber with good carbonation, lacing and head. Impressive to look at. Aromas are sweet malt, apricot, raisin, tangerine, marmalade, spice, pine and touch of soap. Goldings and Cascade are the hops that come through the most. Medium bitter, fruity medium finish. Almost, but not quite there.

grant (842) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2002
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2005 Very citrusy. Hoppy enough, I suppose, but finishes with a bit of a sweet taste that doesn’t seem quite right. Also, the tail end of the hops flavor is capsicum-type spicy: burns the tongue a little. Not much in the way of appearance or mouthfeel. Re-rate 12/05: Didn’t take detailed notes this time, but I did enjoy this much more than the first time I had it. Very fresh hoppy character and clean all around.

shorlin (721) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 16, 2002
Nice ambery peachy colour. Big floral, fruity aroma. Taste matches aroma well, with good IPA flavours. Not as bitter as some better IPAs. Very smooth. Good finish and an ejoyable beer from a friend who brought this back from the brewery.
