DEAD HORSE INDIA PALE ALE is handmade from the choicest English winter variety barley malt and lots of fresh whole flower hops.

22 oz bomber. Pours a deep orange caramel amber with a large foamy light cream colored head. Aroma of V-8 vegetable juice, barley, sour notes and faint floral hops. Taste of vegetables, barley, acidic notes and sourness. I agree with blankboy that this one is infected. Could barely touch this one. Drain pour.

Bottle [22oz]. Pours a hazy orange-amber with an average size lasting off-white head. Mild aroma of vegetal notes, light earthy hops, citrus, caramel malt and plastic -- mildly infected? Flavour’s the same: Vegetal, sour and plastic-ey, also somewhat astringent in the finish, simply not pleasurable to drink. Average bodied. Not good enough to finish drinking, a drainpour for me.

Tmoney99 (10680) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop and vegetables aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Interesting brew.

Nice large fluffy off-white head of varying sized bubbles. Mild hoppy and bitter aroma with some oranges, light toasted malts and a bit of spice. Color ia a dark orangish brown. Mellow and very smooth flavor. Incredibly easy drinking brew that is great for a hot summer day. Mild malts and a tad of sweetness along with a bit of floral hops. Hops are pretty minimal though. Finishes a bit malty with some dry lingering bitterness. A pretty good IPA.

Nice IPA, good hop presence, but not overwhelming, which is a good thing. Would have this again.

Apparently I enjoyed this one a lot more than some other raters here--on cask at the brewpub. Very rich, creamy beer with a nice range of grapefruit and grass hops. Very good.

Fairly sweet and lightly cheesy aroma, with some yeast present too. Light brown pour with a nice head. The unexcitingly named Dead Horse - why beat a dead horse? What are they referring to? - the oddly named DH is an amber-like IPA with some odd flavor notes: ginger, wheat, marmalade. It is moderately sharp, with a touch of honey. This is definitely not a hop bomb, and I can see from looking at the other review that I was not the only one scratching my head over how this got into the IPA category. Still, it is a pretty interesting ale, even if it is a horse of a different color.

Nice surprise today at the store 3 new bombers to try. Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with a creamy white head that dissipates quickly. Smells of malt and butter, caramel and maybe some floral hops if I squint, close my eyes and inhale. Taste is sweet malts, caramel, toffee and butter. Very little hops in the aroma or flavor. I had to call my wife over to verify that I wasn’t nuts, but there is very little hops to be found. Medium body and carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. If they had called this a bitter I would have scored it much higher. An IPA this is not. Maybe there was some mix up at bottling time, but I have to assume that this is supposed to be an IPA. If I try this again I will re rate.

22 oz bottle from my 2010 Winter Secret Santa. Best before last day of J(anuary) notched on label. Pour is a slight haze copper golden with a thick three inch off white head. Head holds for a long time. Aroma is dry straw, and a bit of resin. Touch of toasty malt present in the back. Taste is the dusty resin and straw, balanced decently with the toasted malt. The finish has a bit of dirtiness, along with a sharp mineral. Palate is medium to light bodied, light carbonation and the dirty finish. Nice, though was likely past the prime for the hops. Thanks Santa, great box!

Bottle. Pours orange amber with a big and lasting off white head. Floral citric aroma with some malty sweetness. The flavor has some green apple sweetness, malty caramel sweetness, and floral hops. Maybe a bit infected, but still not bad.
