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.

Ungstrup (29465) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 18, 2005
A hazy orange beer with a fine though collapsing white head. The aroma is lovely grassy and hoppy - and so is the flavor.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2009
Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of JohnC. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. Fat and juicy peachy hop aroma. Medium body, caramel and peachy hops with a distinct tartness - bordering sour. Hoppy finish. It may have survived a journey from Britain to India, but it didn’t make it from California to Denmark! 221109

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 12, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a clear amber body with a small white head. Aroma of pine, caramel, and florals. Flavor of sweet malt, light pine, and cream. Seems a bit weak and watered down; more like a pale ale than an IPA.

argo0 (11562) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 7, 2007
(12oz bottle) Small off-white head atop crystal clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, pineapple, orange -- quite pungent bitterness. Taste is medium sweet, mango, some pineapple, grapefruit. Undercarbonated medium body, with some resin. A very fruity beer.

bhensonb (11234) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Bomber from the Arden BevMo in Sacramento, CA. Pours copper with a 2 finger foamy beige head. Mixed aroma of roast malt and sugary/floral hop. Sugary? Med body. MIld carb. Flavor is roast malt, quickly covered over with citrus and floral hop. Maybe some resin underneath. This is sort of a over hopped ESB. To my perception. Pretty good stuff.
