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.

Pours a liquid gold with a nice sized white head. Aroma is hoppy. Nice and creamy on the palate with hops predominate on the flavor profile, sharp but not bitter. An IPA lover’s delight. Pairs well with ham and cheese on rye.

Une pinte en fût à Manhattan, dans un pub irlandais. Une belle dorée avec une mousse blanche. Le liquide est translucide. Un nez de houblon frais avec un malt blond. Une bouche avec une belle amertume, facile avec des notes d’herbes et de malt blond. À boire à grosses lampées.

Can’t believe I’m rating something from AMBEV so highly. Dependable beer, very distinctive resiny aroma. Of course, the hops totally overpower everything else - its just a showcase for the (admittedly lovely) New World hops. Unusual for a US craft style IPA, its very moreish. One of the best bottled IPAs, certainly in the UK - beats the living heck out of Punk IPA for example.

sudomorph (692) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
Draft at California Pizza Kitchen Las Vegas airport. Pours a glear golden yellow with a nice, white head that sticks. Aroma has nice notes of citrus, pine, resin, and a hint of bread. Nice. Taste is balanced. Mild pine and resin and a slight caramel and a short, refreshing finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a bubbly carbonation. Overall pretty good for airport beer.

A mild cereal smell that has a cloudy amber and orange color. The taste has a medium bitterness medium, creamy type of taste which actually very enjoyable. It reminds me of old times, as strange as that may sound, it does. Be good with a roast of some kind or just enjoyed on a cold day. Recommend.

Barnoloid (235) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 12, 2014
A decent enough IPA. Plenty of malt, quite pared down on the hops. Really something of a session ale, despite knocking over 5%. Easy drinking, clean finish.

A nice well-rounded IPA with no weaknesses but nothing that really stands out either. Aromatic but not too flowery. Flavorful but not too bitter.
