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 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!

Has some light grapefruit to the arom. Tons of bittering hops with some citrus to balance it but it could use more. A fairly dry finish. Pretty good stuff.

Clear pearl copper colors. Great sawdust pine smell. Good fall leaf bitter bite to the taste. Leaves a lasting bitter behind.

badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUL 7, 2008
Pours a nice, fairly clear, amber color; but with very little head and no lacing. Smell has some nice juicy citrus hops, balanced well with the some sweet caramel from the malt. This one has a very nice aroma to it, but not quite a 4.5 for me. Taste comes off a little more floral, but still retaining an excellent balance of malt and hops. By balance, I mean that hops are dominant, as it is an IPA, but the malt keeps it from being one sided. Less than medium level of carbonation, with a medium body. This is a beer that beginners can love as well as the experienced hophead. I think this would be a staple beer of mine if it were available in my area.

A hazy orange beer with a fine though collapsing white head. The aroma is lovely grassy and hoppy - and so is the flavor.

Thanks for the brew ckeegan04 Poured into a standard pint glass amber bodied brew with a good two finger worth of head that goes to a nice looking lace The floral piney hops hit your nose first then the malts follow it up. Flavors are a nice hop forward but not to hoppy that it makes you pucker a nice balance .A nice mouthfeel with proper carbonation for the style An easy drinking IPA very sesionable I could easily grab a six of this a good brew all in all

This 22-oz bottle came from from BevMo in Sacramento, CA. It poured a clear copper with very nice foamy off-white head that tended toward light yellow. Medium body and a very slick and oily mouthfeel The flavor is lightly roasted caramel malts with a big hop profile with a good dose of citrus, flowers, and pine hops. Lots of resin in this one. The finish is long, dry and bitter. I like this a great deal, and would serve with pride to any of my beer loving friends.
