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.

I’m not a big fan of this beer. It smells intoxicating, but the taste is ...soapy. I know I use that a lot to describe this kind of beer, but thats what it tastes like to me.....nice color, great foam.....and the taste isn’t bad...but its just something off-setting to me!

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.

A firm malty palate is married well with notes of orange , grapefruit , spice, caramel. Pretty dry and raspy finish . Gud stiff !
