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.

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 18, 2005
Bottle at Spring Brewtopia 2005... Clear, yellow ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Malty and fruity aroma with notes of butterscotch, toffee and apple blossom honey. Flavor has a good malt backbone. It’s very generously hopped and dry with lots of toffee and grapefruit rind. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, crisp, moderately bitter finish.

ClarkVV (4841) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 3, 2005
2004 bottle at Julio’s Spring Beer Festival, 4/02/05. Clear golden-yellow body, small white head, fair retention, some lacing. Aroma of simple, citrus hops and light fruity yeast. Little bit of pale malt to balance, some dry hay-mineral-like notes. Flavor is dry and hoppy, bordering astringent. Fruits, minerals, some iron in there that dosent belong and a bit of soap. Boring, unwavering hops bitterness, little malt backbone, medium body, moderate carbonation. Yawn....

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2005
Very dissapointing. Orange coloured. Aroma and flavour are lager-like. Slightly metallic finish. Rather thin. Not very hoppy at all.

ChazyRPh (583) - Chazy, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2005
bottle...clear orangish pour with medium white head. Floral hop aroma, some skunk aroma also. Crisp, one dimensional. Floral hop flavors, some lingering bitterness. Maybe a hint of malt, however mostly uninteresting. Some grapefruit bitterness to finish.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JAN 16, 2005
Not a hoppy as i expected, anda lot of malt charachter in my view for an IPA. Malt character seemed to be slightly corny. It was still a decent brew. It poured a yellowishorange color. Most IPA’s i have had where a deep orange or kind of an amber brew.

spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - JAN 8, 2005
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.

Suttree (5767) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2005
Cloudy Orange, white head. Citruy sweet aroma. Crispy, cany orange slice flavor, with hints of pine. Earthy, "dirty", peppery finish. Nicely enjoyable.

Dorwart (2482) - 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 (4545) - 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.
