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.

Draft at Proof. Clear golden pour with a small white head. Aroma of fruity, piney hops with lighter pale malt backing. Flavor is similar throughout with mellower flavors and a mild bitter ending. Not bad.

BrewGoblin (533) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
There are times when a fella wants nothing but an easy drinking IPA. Now is one of those times and this is one of those IPAs. A very lightly hazy copper and gold body, some decent lacing and snappy, enticing toots of pink grapefruit, clementine, mango, pineapple and lemon draw in the eye and the mouth for a carefully calculated inspection. Sweet honey and light cereal hints play a background balancing act to the hoppin’ good time going on up front. A nice medium lively carbonation and some malt chew round out this enjoyable beer. I’d goose-neck a few a of these into me anytime my slurp-service is required.

mjansen1310 (108) - Soest, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
0,33 cl bottle. Pours an apple juice coloured beer. Taste is ipa bitter, with a sour taste. Since I don’t really like ipa’s ( but I’ll will die trying ) this isn’t my cup of tea. Not the worst one I have tasted.

One2remeber (161) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2015
Bottled 03/26/15. Bright orange, light amber hue. Brightly clear. Enough pale malt for character, but lets the hops do all the work. Orange citrusy, bit of pear (white fruit) lean more on the English side compared to a big dank, grapefruit type American IPA. Noble hop character lingers with a woodsy taste compared to medicinal or leafy. Standard EIPA, not over the top, easy drinking, enough character to not be taken lightly.

MrHangover (3068) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear orange beer with a big white, lacy head on top. Aroma is grassy, citrussy, grapefruit and a touch of malts in there. Flavor is mildly bitter, a big sweet malted base and a bit dusty. Checked the bottle and it’s over 4 months old, so I’d reckon it must the age on this bottle that makes it a shadow of it’s former self. Need to revisit sometimes.

Gangstergafje (134) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 3, 2015
The beer has a beautiful amber color and a head as white as snow. It has the typical IPA features. The beer has a delicious citrusy hop smell. The fresh lemon zest is accompanied by a herbal hint. The taste is just as refreshing as the smell. It also has the distinct IPA taste, those citrusy hop flavors in combination with a tingling bitterness. The fizzly beer tingles the tongue anyway. The finish is delicious. It contains the IPA bitterness and at the beginning of the finish there are the sour hops. Nice.

Gary (1528) - Piss-ant Valley, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2015
Bottled :R8 ; A pretty solid mid-card IPA , very easy to swill 4 bottles without blinking /. Nose has resemblance with a classy air-freshener . Pine ,wood, aromatics, grass. Some rich caramel. A firm malty palate is married well with notes of orange , grapefruit , spice, caramel. Pretty dry and raspy finish . Gud stiff !

Clear Amber pour, thin white head that fades to a lace. Aroma is light citrus, grain, slight earthiness. Taste is light citrus, caramel, toast. Mild bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Doesn’t really stand out.

On tap at Buffalo Wild Wings, Terminal D, Atlanylta Airport. Pours darker amber with good sized off white head. Aroma is citrusy with solid malt presence. Taste is hoppy with citrus fruit and grass. Spicy malts present as well. Little bitterness. Palate is softly carbonated. Not bad, but I think the tap system here is contaminated. Some slinky notes in the after taste.
