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!

On tap at The Livery and served in a an English pint glass. Hazy straw golden pour with a thin head of off-white foam. Minimal lace. The aroma had brisk citrus (lemon, grapefruit), and light bread. The flavor was crisp and fairly dry. Pale malt followed by a moderate bitterness. Medium-bodied. Lightly carbonated. Decent.

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Draft sample at MBGF Summer 2009. Poured hazy amber color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate sour citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a drinkable complex brew.

holdenn (2080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2009
On tap at the brewpub back in January. A nice refuge from the snowstorm that blinded us. Pours a hazed orange with a thin white soapy head. Sweet caramels that are doughy and yeasty with piney hops in the aromas. Citrus, lemon, fruity flavors next to the caramel and dough malts with a strong lasting piney bitterness that is somewhat herbal. Decent.

[Draft @ Livery] Poured a hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, citrus fruits, toasted malts, floral hops, and a bit of grass. Taste of citrus fruits, grassy hops, light resiny pine, some caramel, and a bitter finish.
