COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bière légèrement plus alcoolisée aux reflets roux orangés à l'amertume prononcée et au nez floral. Ce classique anglais fut jadis concocté ainsi dans le but de faciliter l'exportation dans les colonies britanniques, entre autres aux Indes, d'où son appellation.

22 oz. bottle filled counter-pressure from a tap at Charleston Beer Exchange, courtesy of a trade bonus with Maltzilla- thanks, Diego! Filled one month to the day before I tried it. Aroma of floral hops, perfume, caramel malts, orange citrus, apples, and a bit of soap. The flavor largely follows suit, albeit not quite as nicely; the bitterness and soap both go up a notch but not overwhelmingly so. Light-medium bodied, with average carbonation and a bitter mouthfeel. Good IPA.

Courtesy someone at Fruit in the Room, thank you. Pours deep copper with modest off white head. The aroma is tart and spicy and a little bit of floral hops with some sweetness in the background. The taste is similar with spicy to tart hop notes leaning toward a sense of acidic like tartness with a smooth sweet sugary malty backbone.

Bière avec un beau collet de mousse formant une dentelle sur les parois du verre, plutôt malté et peu houblonné à première gorgé mais s’équilibre avec le temps, bonne saveur du houblon, 6.5% en alcool, dégusté dans un verre de 12 oz en fut à la brasserie.
