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.

Almost the perfect IPA. Great dark gold color. Very smooth. The hoppiness is distinct but smooth. The aroma isn't bold, but this is overcome by the great finish and overall taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is a very good IPA. Extremely well balanced between bitterness and taste. The aftertaste of this beer is delicious as well. I usually go back and forth between this beer and Dogfish Head 90 Minute in a night.

Delicious, hoppy, sweet, smooth finish. Really a lot more than I was expecting based on the bottle!

What a wonderful beer. Evocative for me...of what I won’t say. A great, truly American IPA. Rather different from an English IPA, and it shows in both the aroma (how can that be bettered?) and the flavour. Balanced and very hoppy, and what hops: Styrian, Fuggle, Cascade and Centennial. A great combination, and with an exquisite maltiness. Oh Cascade!

Exactly what I’m looking for in an ipa. Deliciously hoppy but not to heavy so it’s extremely drinkable.

Clear amber with off white head. Aroma of hops, hops, citrus and hops. Tasteis similar but with an added sweet fruitiness. Even though this is a highly rated ipa, I think it is ununderrated. Great but slightly different ipa.

During a time when IIPAs and IIIPAs are becoming more and more the norm rather than the exception, it is nice to see a beer that stays true to the English IPA style. Pours a very light copper, somewhat brilliant with golden highlights, good head with decent retention and fine lacing. There’s a distinct fruitiness that jumps out in the aroma which is slightly floral with a very light dose of citrus. There’s also a slight ester from the malt that comes across as biscuit and light tobacco. It tastes lightly sweet which quickly dissipates into a moderately dry finish. Very satisfying and drinkable. They’ve kept the body light enough to enjoy more than one pint. There’s a chewy malt and fruity yeast characteristic which is unmistakably English. A beautiful beer and a classic example of the style.

This is a great IPA. Very drinkable. Also appreciate the fact that this one is lightly dry malted, making it crisper than other IPAs. Abv is not quite in the 7 range or higher. And due to alcohol levels can result in being on the sweeter side, and this one isn’t . Cheers!
