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.

This is wonderful interpretation of a traditional English IPA. A nice firm hop aroma and strong finish without a heavy lingering aftertaste.

Lite amber with small, quickly disappearing white head. Slight spicy aroma. Taste starts caramel then, quickly rising bitterness. The aftertaste is lingering.

ScipioA (405) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Looks like the classic IPA: hazed copper body with a large tan head that lasts. Aroma is faint fruits (apricot mostly) and general beer along with some flowers. The flavor is sickly sweet caramel with some faint lingering bitterness. Nice thick body with frothy carbonation. Subpar IPA.

Quick3Beers (631) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Very refreshing unfiltered IPA, pouring a hazy amber from a bottle. Fruity hop-forward flavor, some malty sweetness, and a very pleasant bitterness. Very good beer.
