To be considered - this is not an IPA as "per se" for the American standard that stands today. It is an English India Export beer, that has been been brewed using the recipes of old English India Export beers - caramel malt, plenty of hops, clear spring water and a special strain of English ale yeast. This is a traditional English IPA, not the American variant and it is a good one at that. Very nice medium roasted caramel malts, moderate bitter hops...it is a well balanced brit-beer.

Shot (163) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2014
From a bottle. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not much aroma. Hints of malt and citrus. Flavors of stone fruit and citrus with toasty, bready notes. Fairly dry finish with citrusy notes and a slight hop bite. Medium mouthfeel. Actually not a bad beer at all, but not as hoppy as most IPAs out there today.
