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.

wlajwl (3570) - 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.

Draft at the experience hendrix concert. Aroma of light citrus hops and not much else. Taste of light citrus, pine, pretty bland, light body. Meh

hockeybeerguy (917) - Juneau, Alaska, 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.

grundsow (44) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Very good-tasting IPA, hoppy and rich, just not quite an overpowering mouthful as say, a Victory brew. High, but not excessive alcohol content. . I like this a lot though!

John25 (205) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Draft. Gold, a little haze, nice lacing. Orange, lemon, crisp, a touch of bitterness, drinkable easy ipa. Pretty good, semi-classic. Best option at a neighborhood happy hour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

berkshirejohn (4209) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2014
12oz bottle from Drum Hill Liqour, Chelmsford, MA. Amber with a thin white head; heady, sweet, fruit blossom, aroma; slightly acidic fruity bitter taste; with some warming spicy hops to finish. Very pleasant and drinkable, but certainly neither a traditional IPA, nor a modern American one.

ibrubeer (39) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Draft. Clear, golden color. Nice hoppy aroma. Flavor tasted a little bit off, like maybe dirty lines? Citrusy flavor, but the aftertaste was a little off. Overall not too bad though.

Bottle. This is a decent passable IPA with some decent bite and a good price point.

Pours a hazy orange yellow. Aroma is orange and malt. Taste is grainy floral with a light bitterness. Tastes natural. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
