India Pale Ale was developed in Burton, England, as a "Super-Premium" hoppy pale ale around 1800. The extra strength in alcohol and hops helped preserve the beer on its long export journeys to India and beyond. The style developed a following worldwide. Its flavor begins with a smooth, malty creaminess followed with a big burst of dry-hop flavor from English Kent Golding Hops. It then finishes with a lingering yet pleasant bitterness.

Big Swell IPA is a fresh handcrafted India Pale Ale brewed with huge amounts of American hops and malted barley...dry hopped to perfection!

AshtonMcCobb (5382) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 22, 2011
355ml bottle. Pours hazy golden-orange with some head and not much bubbles. The nose has pine and grapefruit pith and a yeasty lemon note at the end. The taste has grapefruit and lemon pith. The palate is medium to full bodied with a really clean zesty finish - good! Overall, a great example of an American IPA, I think!

Hansen (8436) - Assentoft, DENMARK - JUL 20, 2011
Light brown coloured and hazy. Has a white head, medium duration. Heavy hoppy aroma, citrus, spicy, herbs. Instant flavor is sweet, the heavy bitter. I bit unharmonic. Dry texture.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 17, 2011
Can, mybrewerytap.com. Great spicy, grassy aroma leading into a strong bitter beer with great zestiness on the tongue and a lovely dry finish. It’s rounded, with some creaminess in the background. Lovely hazy golden/orange appearance, great looking, great tasting beer. Is canned beer the way forward? If it’s this good, then yes!

Can, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense.
Hazy dark golden with a medium, frothy, off-white head. Biscuity malts aroma, light doughy, some resiny hops, light floral and some apricot and grapefruit. Medium carbonation, fine creamy and fairly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is nice, floral, fruity, light pine, biscuity again, light vinious notes. Apricot and piney bitter finish. Okay, bit there is a lot of malts that prevent it from being really crisp. Very long, lingering bitter aftertaste.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2011
Canned: Cloudy deep orange with white head. Fruity and sweet aroma with some caramelmaltiness, peach, resin. The taste is refreshingly bitter. Not as malty as the aroma suggests. Finish is long and quite bitter.

First of all, something is wrong with the can. It pours down the side when trying to pour into the glass. The beer is clear amber and is half head. The head is appealing and frothy. The aroma is dominately citrusly hoppy with a small malt presensce. The texture is smooth and creamy and the flavor refreshingly full, hoppy, bitter, and slightly caramel. Hawaii is redeemed. The beer is better than it lets on and the malty sweetness is smooth and mellow, and only satisfies, just like Copenhagen used to do... since 1822.
