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!

Glass at the brewpub. Very hazy golden orange. The nose is quite hoppy with malt and some spice. Thevtaste is hop forward but tjey are both U S ans European. There is some biscuity malt. This is not bad at all and the mix of hops is nice.

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2011
Draft. Pours a hazed apricot color with a white head that leaves nice lace on the glass. Sweet aroma of orange, grapefruit, and slight pineapple in the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Citrus sweetness gives way to a building hop bitterness that starts subtle and builds in momentum until the very end. Nice IPA and one that I would drink again anytime.

patrick767 (4010) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 2, 2010
tap at the brewery (beer hunters please note: my notes are months old) - Pours copper colored with a nice citrus hop aroma. The flavor is aggressive, earthy hops with mild malt underlying it. It’s medium bodied with the expected lingering bitterness of the style.
