COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ales, or IPA’s, were brewed for British soldiers stationed in India. These ales needed to higher in alcohol and hoppier than normal to survive the long journey, and ours is no exception. Brewed with Belgian and German malts and dry hopped with loads of Cascades, our version honors our friend who had his own grueling journey involving a boat and cold water!

Draft to taster. Looks solid; a hazy orange with foamy white head. Smells solid too; Chinook and Cascade; a touch of Amarillo too. Backbone is bittersweet. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth medium-bodied mouthfeel. A solid IPA.

Clear orange color. White head thin. Orange peel and tropical fruit flavors. Hoppy. Pretty good one. Had this poured from draft at the Livery taproom in Benton Harbor.

In a post two hearted world it’s hard to blow someone’s mind with an ipa. This one, however manages to stand up. It has a kind of generic "ipa" hop flavor. It’s not mind blowing, but it’s a solid ipa. I’m glad I drank this.

Tasted from a growler (Thanks Katie & Pablo). Poured a light golden orange with a frothy white head and streaky lacing. Hoppy grass aroma with the taste of hops and grapefruit. Another delicious offering from The Livery.

On draft, nice golden color and pleasant aroma of cut hay and some pineapply citrus. Smooth and dry, medium bodied with dusty hoppy bitterness. Enjoyable, I’ll definitely have another if I see it around again!

Had it on tap at the Livery Brewery in Benton Harbor Michigan. Poured a beautiful clear amber orange hue with a light head. Lovely cascade hop citrus aroma and taste to match. Delovely!

Draft pour on tap at the brewpub (Benton Harbor, MI). Pours a glowing golden pour, a nice dark hit in the body, some firm glow, bits of orange, good haze. A frothy whitish head atop stays as a firm filmy layer, bright white laces ok. Aromas are lemony and floral, a touch of fresh dandelion, some earth, grass, and more lemon rind. Ntoa. Complex fruity nose but well hopped. Some bread, gentle resiny quality. Nice. Initial is lighter end of the fold, firm and big bitter dryness strike, floral and earthy, some lemon rind, big floral bitter quality. Green leafy, rose petals, and dandelions. Big floral bitter presence. Middle is gentle bread, dry, big floral presence. A bit powdery, firm floral presence, with a gentle bready dry malt element. Small body, bigger earthy bitterness. Not a complex or engaging hop profile like the modern "rock star" hops, but pretty nice. Quite drinkable. Finish is dandelion, rose petal, and floral hop presence. Dry grass, gentle lemon rind twist grows and gets a bit more potent. a "lunch pailer" of an IPA if there ever was one.

Cracker and honey malt nose with lots of citrus hops and flowers. The taste is lightly sweet and moderately bitter with some cotton candy, lots of grapefruit and light lemon, some crisp malts.
