COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of a legendary style is not for the timid. Strong, assertively hoppy and dangerously seductive. A skillful blend of three premium barley malts with generous amounts of Northern Brewer and Cascade Hops creates a special ale to satisfy even the most demanding palate.

The aroma of this beer is no my thing smells like India. A little cloudy looks like beer. Interesting flavour. I was surprised at the alc. content It doesn't taste strong. Which is surprising. I would drink this beer again if I can ever find it.

Pours a hazy copper color. Thin head. Hardly any aroma at all. Taste is too sweet. I donít get any hop flavor. Wait around after you swallow a bit and some bitterness shows up.

Easier on the palate than most IPAs. Definitely a sessionable beer. orange/apricot aroma. Taste is weak. Nothing special - would not buy again, but would accept if given.

JMerritt (1788) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Sampled at 2009 WIU Performing Arts Society Beerfest. Clear golden with a small, off-white head that is mostly diminishing. Strange grainy, grape aroma - really sweet, perhaps a little nectarine. Seems really artificial. Rather high grain-alcohol flavor, a lot of husky wheat, sour straw, and a little black pepper. Moderately bitter with soft tannins and shoe leather. Lingering bitter finish. Moderately carbonated. Something was off with this - never would have pinpointed this as an IPA.

Cavie (3785) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JAN 8, 2010
Gold pour. Lots of sediment suspended in it. Sweet hops on the aroma. Fresh smelling but has a fading sense. Taste is bitter with tart hops. Earth tones but tastes a bit old. Might be past itís prime. Finish is chalky bitter.

imdownthepub (10125) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 22, 2009
Bottled, 355ml plastic bottle with plastic screw cap. Soupy brown with no head. I donít know if the plastic bottle thing was a past experiment, but it doesnít seem to work. Mixed up, confused, slightly rancid fruit notes on the border of being undrinkable, but the iron gut managed to accept it. Very poor, which is a shame as it was a gift from a kind benefactor.
