COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Modeled on the beers brewed for the long sea voyage from England to India, our India Pale Ale unites a strong malt backbone with a bitter and aromatic finish. Hopped at 2 pounds per barrel with Horizons, Simcoes and Amarillos, our IPA is fully prepared for the long journey from the slopes to the hot tub.

dark clear peach body, looks good, off white head that doesn’t last, not much going on there... the nose changes quite a bit, very complex, but sometimes its great other times bad, the nice notes are oranges with some really mellow dank notes, other times I smells like vomit... the taste is hot dank, a bit spicy with some pine hops, a total malt backbone but its not sweet, just sticky malt, not really successful... I’d pass on this

Nice beer! Good piney hops, grassy notes, light spice, caramel, and crackers. Flavor has a pretty good hop bite, good resinous flavor, nice citrus peel, overall a good beer.

keepersj12 (2655) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2011
My favorite of the samples. This poured an amber with a big foamy head. The aroma was citrus with a touch of pine and sweet malt. The flavor was big on the pine and a touch of sweetness. All in all, pretty decent.

Bomber from HH22... Nice pour: Light golden orange color, decent head. Fruity, piney and tropical hop notes. Caramel malt notes. Taste is the same... Light fruitiness, light grass, light tropical notes, with a nice caramel malt base...Bitter after taste, with some alcohol noticable. Medium body. Overall: Decent IPA. I dont know how fresh this is but I would drink it again. Thanks tim

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 17, 2011
12oz can. Rating #80. Bright orange/amber with a little haze and a nice lacing dirty white head. Mild aroma, light pine with grapefruit showing up in the finish. Nice bitter bite, mild citrus and no flaws, pretty good drinker actually. (1646)

Barreras (938) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 3, 2011
Pours an orange color typical of IPA’s. Aroma is floral with hints of citrus possibly tangerine. Taste is a bit on the bitter side with a citrus and floral taste throughout. You can taste the malt and hops in the beer. This beer is for people who like a bitter beer. Overall sub-par in my book but I am not a huge IPA fan in the first place.

From the Jug at the GABF, Colorado Convention Center Denver 18/09/2010 Big hop aroma. Golden coloured strong in alcohol and hoppy with a hint of dryness in a nutty and floral malt finish.

headheldhigh (100) - Walnut, California, USA - APR 2, 2011
On tap this brew pours out a golden yellow with a nice head. Smells of hops pine trees and lemon peels. Tastes of California hops and citrus fruits. Don’t expect Pliny the elder Arrogant bastard or DFH 120 but a refreshing ipa. Went well with hot wings and smoked cheddar.

DYCSoccer17 (3300) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 20, 2011
16 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Graduate. The aroma is nice and hoppy with pine and citrus orangey notes. Some grapefruit is pleasant, too. Nice aroma. Transparent copper-orange body with a small, off-white head present. Trace lacing. Starts lightly hopped with floral notes before this becomes very husky and toasted with lots of tannins in the middle. Finishes with a scant herbal hop character and light bitterness. Epic IPA, eh? The only thing epic about this is how forgettable it is...

Pours orange in color. Aroma is strong and woodsy. Taste is strong too. But it stops heavy hopping midway through and has a solid set of flavors.
