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.

This brew is a clear orange-gold color with a medium bone white head that recedes steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with flavors of herbal hops, malt and citrus fruits. The finish is moderately hoppy with a fruity aftertaste. Not exactly "epic’, but not bad either.

Poured into a pint glass. Color is a cloudy amber. Aroma is mild but has floral hops. Flavor is light bready malts at the start and turns into a hoppier finish. Palate is light bodied and has a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Overall a good IPA.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - SEP 18, 2011
A clear amber beer with a decent creamy head that sticks around and leaves lace. Smells of piney hops, a bit of citrus, and some caramel malt. Flavor is not so much hop flavor as crystal malt, with a decent dose of bitterness to finish.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 8, 2011
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.

thetmaxx (810) - West Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 7, 2011
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!

Clear copper pour from can straight from brewery. Great aroma with lots of citrus and caramel. Strong malty backbone with nice hoppy crisp finish. Great stuff.

boFNjackson (4191) - 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 (3497) - 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.
