COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This formidable India Pale Ale has a hop aroma that demands attention. The bold, citrus hop flavor is balanced by a dry malt character making this refreshing ale a true classic.

unclemattie (4136) - Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2012
12oz bottle. Copper color. Creamy head, beige. Citrus & pine hops aroma. Scent of caramel malt in background. Some banana. Sweet malts, caramel, toasted grains. Followed up with a sharp hop bitterness. Crisp, loads of hops. Nice floral, citrus, earthy hop characters. Toasted cereal and hop oil finish. Very well balanced. Stronger than most American IPAs.

Tinco (563) - Linköping, SWEDEN - NOV 3, 2012
Pors kind of dark orange with a small off white head. Taste is very malty with a hint of dank hops in there. Not a very good offering.

ausomeawestin (151) - Maryland, USA - SEP 25, 2012
Pours a beautiful deep mahogany, dark caramel color with huge off white head and lots of intricate lacing. Aroma of floral hops and spruce. Strong malt flavors at first, followed by shift to fruity apple and pear hops before finishing with a smoky wood flavor.  Palate is full but not sticky. Overall a very deliciously complex IPA.

Voodoo (294) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Pours a root beer color with a thin head. Malty with a touch of citrus in the nose. An English style IPA with a more pronounced hop taste in the finish. Very clean, not overly citrusy, very true to the style without going out of balance. Quite a nice IPA without excesses of anything.

berkshirejohn (4403) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2012
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, King of Prussia, PA. Reddish copper with a rim of translucent head; malty aroma with some orange fruit; oily in the mouth, with a small dose of resinous hops, and lots of obvious alcohol; before a warming finish with a dry, toasty aftertaste.

Thanks to Simon and Shannon. Copper color. Very bready. Touch of caramel. Flavor is toast and bread. Just a touch of hops.

Theydon_Bois (7944) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle at my Uncles house, PA - 20/05/12. Pours an amber colour with a medium white head. Malts and grain on the nose with a whiff of booze. Sweet malt taste, bready, some citrus fruits and hops. Medium body, limited carbonation, a little watery. Average.

sharkbcr (103) - Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2012
A solid IPA. Good head and gold / copper color. Above average citrus hop taste but ultimately wished I had went with the Boss Hog!

alobar (2737) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Pours a copper color with a white soapy head. Aroma of floral hops, some grapefruit, and a touch of caramel. Citrus flavor with caramel and a hop ending. Good flavor on this one.

jrodooo5 (947) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 18, 2012
There is a subtle sense of some floral hops in the aroma. The pour is a deep amber with a white head that fades into lacing. The taste is crisp and very smooth for an IPA. There’s a hop presence throughout but it finishes clean and refreshing. I’m quite surprised that this beer is nearly 8%. I find it very drinkable and quite enjoyable!
