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.

From cask at Vices et Versa. Hazy amber-orange with a small but sticky white head. Beautiful citrus (grapefruit, orange) and pine hoppy aroma. Flavour maintains the hop presence, with the addition of caramel and biscuit from the malt. Carbonation is about what you’d expect from a cask. Very, very solid.

UPDATED: SEP 2, 2013 Mmmm this is a good IPA. Hazy amber color with a tan head this beer has drink me all over it. The nose is nice and hoppy a little grassy hops with a solid malt aroma in the backround. The mouthfeel is full and almost oily. Taste is rich malt and good bitterness but not dry.

Seen in bottle for the first time today; 8,49$ for 750ml, which is a lot of money for a beer bottled 25 km away from where I bought it, at BDF. Amazing IPA, though, very hoppy. A lot of things in suspension, making it a very hazy reddish-caramel color. At each sips, there seems to be internal tidal waves in the glass, revolving around with the carbonation. Lasting thin layer of foam. Something in the aroma reminds me of that strong glue odor I remember from the crazy monster Dogfish Head 120 minutes, at 21% ABV (it might seem like a problem but I like these two beers so much!). The taste is of citrus hop at first, very dominant and that slowly but aggressivly attacks every part of your mouth, leaving your tongue numb, dizzy and begging for more! Caramelised maltiness and various layers of taste and the hop subtilities make this beer one of the finest IPA I ever had, not too powerful and very subtle everlasting aftertaste.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Cask at Spuyten Duyvil: Hazy deep orange with a dense off white lace- nice fruity hop aroma- amarillo-like hops- peachy & mango tropical fruit notes. Creamy light body. Fruity flavor- a touch citric in the flavor some of the tropical fruit notes (peach & mango) upfront followed by a citric/lemony character. There’s a light crystal/pale base to balance. A bit too citric in the hop character, but a pretty nice cask overall.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2009
Bottle- A deep orangey-amber, pours a frothy eggshell cap leaving good lace, with nice retention overall. In the nose, piney, grapefruity hops, fresh leafy greens, mango and apricot, a bit of earthy caramel. Tastes of huge citric hops, some piney notes, sweet tropical fruit, some caramel, quite earthy and full, all the while being creamy and quite drinkable overall. A nice IPA from this brewer.

Glass at the pub. Perfect pour. Amber with a nice great white head. Nice look. Aroma is nicely hoppy and citrusy. Taste is plain hop and awesome grapefruit. A bit floral and a tiny bit grassy (which I don’t normally appreciate a lot but this time it was ok). Finish is a bit citric and nicely bitter. Very well balanced and well crafted. I will revisit with a bottled version. I liked it a lot ! Rating #116

Glass at pub. Dark copper. Good head. Thick hop and caramel scent with hints of citrus, spruce and more wood. Very different! Caramel middle. Spurce, resin and wood finish.
