COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Infidel Imperial India Pale Ale is brewed with generous portions of malt and sinful amounts of hops. You have in your hand the anti-Christ of the macro-beer. If you are a disciple of the watery yellow fizzy stuff, put this fine craft brew down and step away. You are not suitably prepared for the Infidel experience. If you think you are ready, enjoy it with spicy foods such as Curry, Creole, Cajun, or hot chili. Infidel also goes great with meats (especially spiced-up or blackened) and burgers. You can also enjoy it by itself, but be vigilant; because in the morning when you say, "The devil made me do it!" heíll be long gone, and youíll be the one on the hook.

I allowed the bottle to sit out for 10-15 min prior to opening. It pours light copper with a thin off-white head. Fizzes when glass is roused. small bubbles which do not cling to the glass.Nose has an interesting contrast between hops, malt and an estery character. Slight presence of DMS. Flavor is bitter, woodsy, piney and spicy. There is an underlying malt sweetness there as well. Medium body with medium to high carbonation with a warming sensation. this beer has a smooth balance of hops and malt but the alcohol gives it a brisk warming character. Sticky yet dry finish.

Bottle. Caramel malt and sweet orange hops aroma. Murky amber with a small ivory head. Caramel malt and orange peel hops flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation. Pretty good, considering itís an old bottle from an out of business brewery.

Cardboardy notes with caramel sweetness, earthy old oxidized hops. Golden orange, thin white ring, soft lace. Cardboard, black pepper, orangey sweetness, light vanilla. Lingering soft oxidation and black peppery hops. Really not that bad, just old. Probably a nice beer when fresh. Held up decently and turned into a light barleywine.

12oz bottle, thanks Alex. Pours a orangish golden with decent lookin dirty off white head. Caramel malt, honey, biscuit, cardboard, and still decent amount of hops showing through. Bitter, bready, light pepper, old herbal hops, oxidation showing but still not bad. I bet this was quite tasty when fresh.

Nifty label. Pours amber with a thin off white head. Smells of bitter citrus and some sweet malt. Tastes malty with lots of citrussy undertones and some bitterness on the finish.

Bottle from Craig. Thanks? I am not sure if this is the freshest bottle. Pours out a cloudy brown color with almost no head. There is some hops noted, with a little bit of grass and pine left, but thats about it. Taste is somewhat bitter, but it tastes like a beer that is well past its prime. I think I figured out why this brewery is now defunct, as this beer kind of sucks to be honest. Half of this fouled up my sink. Thanks for the rating though Craig, at least it is a rare beer since it is no longer made...

A good IPA, for those who enjoy India Pale Ales. Their slogan doesnt lie, loaded with hops. Missing something...slightly over done, but good.

Hmmmm, retired. As well it should be. Large tan head that lasts, minimal lace. Hazy orange/light copper color. Nose is funky, spicey, sorta grassy, lightly fruity. Body is light for the style, over carbonated with an aggressive astringency on the palate. Funky fruit flavors, coriander? Celery? faint citrus with some horrid vegetal notes, malt? Dry finish that just lasts way too long. I think i over-rated this one! Thanks Robert!
