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 loverís 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 youíll remember.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2007 I love beers like this. Aroma is grapefruit and gooseberry out its nut. Taste is similarly full of citrus flavours with sweetness coming off the malts, not a big bold chewy body, but a good sweetness, to make it one of the most drinkable beers iv had in a month or two. Get me a case of this so i can have a few days off.

Smooth and oily textured ale. Light amber golden body with small head. Beautifully touched by strong orange and grapefruit flavor with floral hop bitterness. Fruity-perfume smell. Dry bitter-fruity aftertaste. Medium carbonated.

lobonator (19) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2009
Iíve had IPAís that were very sharp, harsh, perfumy and snappy bitter - too much so. This one is different. Everything seems right on. The Aroma is all hops. Appearance is dark gold/amber with fine bubbled foam. Taste and mouthfeel are wonderfully hoppy, smooth and soft with a dry finish. Not astringent at all. Hop flavor is flowery and lingers on the palate. This is an IPA and hops rightly dominate and overshadow malt. Finest IPA Iíve ever had.

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - DEC 11, 2009
Pours a yellow orange, more yellow, pale color with generous white head. Very fresh floral and orange on the nose. Very tempting. On the palate is a seriously hopped melody of flavours that are still balanced with malt. Simple story executed beautifully - assertive hop character but still balanced and very, very drinkable. Among the best IPAís Iíve ever had.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2014 Bottled at some pub in Glasgow, UK. Hazy golden colored, white head. Very pleasant hoppy nose, lots of fruit, pine. Hopbitter flavor, fruity notes again, very balanced. Lasting hoppy finish. Very complex yet easy to drink beer, exactly how i like my IPA. A beer i could drink all evening (and so i did...).

Pyrmir (3559) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2013
355 ml bottle. Dark golden with small orange head. Aroma of caramel and grassy and flowery hops. Malts and hops goes very well together. Taste of caramel with lots of grassy hops. Bitterness is relatively low considering the aroma hop level. Really nice.

Very good IPA. One of the first few IPAís I ever had when just starting out trying new craft beers. Still one of the best I have ever had.
