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.

Mis à part la belle robe ambrée bien claire aux reflets dorés, rien de trop intéressant dans cette bière. Les arômes caramélisés et terreux me font penser à du matl pré-fait pour un mix de bière maison. Des houblons aux effluves d’orange tentent de faire leur place mais je les sens pris dans quelque chose qui me fait penser à des oignons confits. Au goût, un peu mieux mais encore là, ce côté malté et terreux prend beaucoup de place. Les houblons sauvent la mise. La finale est amère, caramélisée et un petit goût d’orange se démarque. J’ai sérieusement l’impression de boire une ipa oubliée trop longtemps sur des tablettes. Le problème est que ce produit est nouveau au Québec et j’espère que GI n’est pas en train de nous refiler du vieux stock. À réessayer.

Dark amber verging on copper. One finger of bright white head. Minimal lacing. Fairly filtered. On the nose it is a blending of citrus and pine. More of that on the palate, with some light malt in the mix. All fairly bitter. A little bit of grassiness in there too. I’d buy and drink this again.

Clear golden with a good amount of foam. Tropical fruit, citrus, and piney aroma. Body was pretty light for the bitterness but enjoyable.

35.5 cL bottle at home. Pours clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma is pretty nice with hops, fruitiness, tropical fruits, some citrus. Taste is slightly sweet and fruity with a decent malt body and a medium bitter finish. Pretty crisp. Medium body and carbo. Nice IPA and available in my local supermarket.

Lekkere hoppige IPA met een fruitige twist. Smaakt goed maar valt meer in categorie standaard IPA, niets speciaals.

RRistow12 (394) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Tasted from draft. Pours a clear gold with fluffy white head. Aroma is citrus fruit with some pine and a little bready malt sweet smell. Taste is very well balanced. Moderate clean bitterness throughout with a nice mild sweet malt backbone. Citrus, caramel, pine, biscuits, grass flavors. Very solid IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bendrixian (1293) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2015
Pint. Muted aroma. Sort of funky hops. Medium body sort of hoppy but has a fast flavour profile and is rather forgetful as an IPA.

Golden with a generous head. Smells very wheaty and sour with gooseberry. Taste is acrid pine and earwax bitter. It’s all wheat and little else. I love bitter bitter beers but for some reason I find this really challenging (read as unpleasant) and have had before so not a dud. For me the bottle should say wheat beer, nothing like the English IPA promised.
