COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Real India Pale Ale (IPA), as it was first brewed in the days of the British Empire, was not the carefully filtered brew that we call IPA beer today. The first IPAs were unfiltered and featured extra hops and higher strength as a preservative for the long trip from England to the colony of India. Our Traditional IPA ale is naturally carbonated, dry-hopped & unfiltered like the old days.

Clean, hoppy nose with a touch of citrus. Medium orange color. Nice crisp flavor, with an equally dry, crisp finish. Very drinkable. Would buy again.

Dorwart (2378) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Decent head. Slightly rocky and leaves some decent lacing. Orange and hops in the aroma. Bit of bread and malt also. Light carbonation. Color is a medium orange. Flavor is a little weak. Decent hops but not much substance. Some bitterness with more orange. Finish is clean and dry and slightly bitter. A decent pale ale.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2005 Fairly fruity and mildly hoppy nose. Clear golden copper coloured with decent whiye head that recedes to partial cover. Strong caramel, fruity esters and a decent balancing bitterness with some grapefruit hop flavour that never overwhelms. Medium body with mildly engaging carbonation. A very good English style IPA. Bottle.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - NOV 5, 2004
Bottle delivered via courier straight and fresh from the brewery. Golden and clear with a white head. Gentle hoppy fruity aroma. Flavor is fresh with hops, and has a dry malt flavor. Nice lingering hops. This beer IMO is only good when fresh.

DYCSoccer17 (3327) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 24, 2004
Almost more malts in the nose than hops. Not sure which kind of hops, but this is certainly a non-west coast IPA. Copper amber color with a small quickly dissipating off-white head. Thin to start with some caramel roasted malts in the middle finishing rather hoppy and bitter. Not too shabby, but nothing special either.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 22, 2004
Golden amber color, off white head. Aroma of some spicy hops, but not many, and some sweet pale malts. Flavor was a bit fruity, malty, with hops as a total afterthought. Slightly dry, light bitterness, lighter bodied. Needs some work.

Bottle,from Julio’s. Good nose, Citrus mainly, orange,grapefruit, lemon,lime. Little toffee too. Clean orangy yellow color. Small head, left ring around edge of glass. Bitter sweet flavors, same as aroma. Quick bitter bite, then some sweetness. Thin body, kinda creamy. bitterdry finish. Tasty easy drinkin beer. I remember when this was one of the hoppiest beers I could find.
