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.

22oz bottle. Pours a murky orange color; fine-bubbled off-white head with solid lacing. Dank, sweet and orangey aroma; amarillo shows through, along with some candied sweetness and a bit of alcohol. Muddled but tasty, in a phrase. Medium-full body, modest CO2. Chewy candied maltiness, with the orange character running up against that juicy orange hop note; lightly warming, a slight coarseness in the presentation, but overall a delicious (if muddled) IPA. Seems bulkier than 6.5%, but that’s mostly residual sweetness. Medium-length finish: toasty, citrusy, a bit sweet.

This was poured from the gift pack I received from the brewery. Aroma is nice, cleanly hopped. Flavor is mildly bitter, but not overly for a regular ipa. Overall its pretty great!

boFNjackson (4177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Can... Poured golden with a white head. Very sweet, like hop candy. Slightly floral, sweet tart-like yeast esters, malty sweetness, dry carbonated palate, hoppy finish.

jrallen34 (3485) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 2, 2011
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 (2761) - 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.

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)
