James Squire India Pale Ale is made with only Munich and pale malt, so it brews to a rich, golden colour, with a robust, malty character. Its earthy floral aromas are a result of dry-hopping with English Fuggles hops added in generous amounts directly to the maturation tanks. This India Pale Ale is handcrafted in the traditional style. It is higher in alcohol, effervescent and has a characteristic highly hopped bitterness with a crisp finish on the palate.

I really like this one. Not so overpowering as some English versions of IPA, but it stii has a nice hoppy bitterness. Dow not have a deep colour like some IPA’s and is really easy to drink. This can fool some as it still packs a kick at 5.6% abv, so be warned, a session on this can be a little dangerous as I have found. Even so, it is good to find something drinkable like this that is available at the local bottle shop. Cheers folks.

The beer poured from a bottle is a beautiful clear amber. Not too much on the nose but the taste is quite malty with some citrus notes, but not a very hoppy IPA. Not very adventurous but a nice beer

Bottle. Clear copper pour with a white head. Bland hop aromas. Nondescript almost Pilsner like hop notes. Good balance. Average body with a below average mouthfeel.

Nice beer,a lighter version of IPA, lacking hops or aroma could be better priced.

345ml bottle. Poured a deep, clear copper-amber with a tall, rocky and mostly lasting beige head leaving a soapy lace. Robust burnt caramel, toasted bread and toffee-styled malts with marmalade, tangerine and grapefruit hops to balance. Medium body with a dry, spritzy carbonation and a lengthy earthy, bittersweet finish.

mattyhennessy (311) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - MAY 11, 2014
Pours a red amber with a foamy beige head. Sweet aroma of malts, some stone fruit, floral and a hint of citrus. Initial bitterness punch, sweet malt flavour and a mellow hoppy finish. Nice malt complexity. Clearly made to be drinkable and in large batches, but definitely above average.

A very drinkable Indian Pale ale. Was very sceptical trying this with many people giving it a bad wrap, but for someone who like a good indian pale this is not a bad beer. Great aroma and body... Nice caramel flavours too which was a pleasant surprise..
