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.

TrefwoordPunk (964) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 24, 2009
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours an orange golden with a medium white head and an aroma of hops, cookies, citrus, grapefruit, sweet malts and grass. The taste is bready, with salty notes and notes of fresh citrus fruits. The aftertaste is really hoppy, but not too sharp or bitter. Really nice.

Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Bottle Pours a yellowish copper with a good white head. The head lasts well and laced okay. Has a good hoppy aroma of citrus, pine, and floral. The carbination is good. Flavor is good hoppy but not over the top. Has an oily texture. The body is light to medium. Not a bad finish and a good aftertaste. Not a super harsh IPA but real drinkable.

TheJester (2533) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2009
355 mL bottle. Clear orange-gold with a small, quickly dissipating, white head. Lotsa citrus hop in the aroma with a little spruce and sweet caramel underneath. Flavour is relatively well balanced. The malt profile is simple and a little "thin," but it makes enough of an impact to prevent this one from being one-dimensional. Hops in the finish, but they don’t linger, which wouldn’t be a terrible thing. Pretty good, though.

iabeerguy (392) - Iowa, USA - FEB 21, 2010
This beer pours a dark orange color with a pretty nice sized white head. Lacing around the glass sticks nicely and doesn’t fade to fast. Smell of citrus and hops sticks out. Flavor of hops and malts. Slightly bitter but very good.

Refreshing and easy. Pretty much your typical IPA without standing out but not bad at all. Just a solid well balanced IPA. Decent enough
