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.

berniecarbo (148) - Holliston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Draft, poured golden with white head, minimal lacing. Light to meduim body, not a big hop IPA, stronger malts, suprisingly good. Nice to see and taste AB hasn’t ruined this brand.

Tap at Lazy Dog. Pours a transparent dark golden with a thin layer odd cream colored head. Taste of oranges and hops. Aroma of floral hops and citrus.

WheatKing (1240) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
Bottle. Light amber white head. Nose is caramel/pine/citrus, nasal clearing. Flavour leans more toward the hops but still balanced by the caramel. Finish does have caramel but has a slight dry bite. Not sticky. Very solid version of an old school American IPA, deserves its rep as a classic. ABV is surprising, thought it was ~7%.

prawlie (1078) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle into a Leffe glass. Clear yellow-orange with a nice bubbly head, although it collapses fairly quickly. Zesty floral hops with a note of spice, it smells good. Crisp, fruity but dry with a certain malty biscuit too. Very good. For what is becoming a mainstream beer this manages to still be decent stuff.

Often the best beer available at bars, but nothing special. Pretty generic IPA.

Bookseeb (108) - Wenatchee, Washington, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Appearance shows a light golden amber color supporting a light dissipating head. Smell of grapefruit citrus and sweet malts. taste has a lighter malty backbone with a grassy hop flavor that end dry. Mouthfeel is light - medium with good carbonation. Not a full bodied and balanced IPA.

On tap. It’s ok. Bright citrus flavor and aroma. Nice lacing as well. A little maltier than I’d hoped, but still ok.
