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.

johnnnniee (3797) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle from the 12 pack Pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a huge bubbly off white head that persists forever. Smells of bread citrus and light caramel with a hint of fruity esters. Flavor is quite malty for an IPA with huge bread and caramel notes offset with just enough earthy hops to keep it from being too sweet. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet somewhat chalky mouthfeel. Middle of the road, old school, English inspired pale ale.

I’d hoped that the previous ratings weren’t exactly true, but they were...this beer has a nice aroma, but is seriously lacking on the IPA bitterness we have come to love. The aftertaste while at first is pretty palatable, eventually becomes a bit skunky and then dry.

wlajwl (5779) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 18, 2014
Aroma is citrus, earthy malts and a hint of spices. The flavor is citrus/possibly Challenger hops, earthy malts, very mild hop resin notes and a dry/slightly tart finish. Not bad, but better labeled as an ESB.

Bulk_Carrier (3742) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance is a golden colored body with no head and leaves a ringy spotty laciness around the glass. The smell has hops, subdued pine, mild malt background. The taste is bitter through the hops and the pine, subdued malts coming through as the beer warms. The palate is about a medium, sessionable, bitter yet malty coating over the mouth and tongue, no aftertaste, watery finish. Overall, not a bad IPA, good.
