Ready to buck convention? We took the traditional IPA, originally shipped from Englad to India in the 1700s, and made it bolder and more flavorful - American style. We've added new varieties of highly aromatic American hops to create a distinctive bitterness profile and an incredible hop character. Hop on, hold tight, and enjoy the ride!

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 6, 2009
12 oz bottle. Whoa! Damn this is nice. Also- thier entire lineup at GABF was just outstanding. Pours a deep golden clear, nice carb, thin and lasting sticky head and killer lace. Aroma is just a punch of fresh resinous as hell piny minty sappy, citrus, and weed-like hops- I wouldnt even say citrus- just weed. Flavor is resinous and just loaded with nice fresh big alpha hops, prickly minty ganja like, very low malt, with a great drying prickly feel in the back of the tongue. Crazy good for a standard IPA! I love it.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 21, 2009
Dark yellow colored with cloudy appearance. Medium sized yellow head. Extremely rich peachy hopped aroma with lemon and pine, thin toffee also comes up. Medium bodied. Flavor is rich too with same peach-pine dominating, aftertaste is well hopped with lemon and pine still lasting.

Fin (8699) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2009
Bottle that I picked up from Bellingers, Jet Garage, Grove Nr Wantage, Oxon, consumed 18-09-09 Pours warm gold with a white head. The hops struggle to shine on the nose as they compete with a heady sweetness, plenty of honey on the nose. The taste lacks the crisp hoppy bite or decent bitterness, its got good flavours but the honey sweetness does tend to dominate.. A7 A3 F7 P3 Ov13 3.3

notalush (5512) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Pours a hazy dark gold with a soapy, sticky lace - potent nose of resinous hops, with some orange peel and other citrus qualities, as well as some honey and caramel sweetness to anchor all the bitterness - a load of earthy pine cone - dry bitterness, with some fruit peel tang and peppery, zesty qualities - some tropical fruit sweetness, but just enough to keep the hops and peppery flavors from becoming too much - a really well-executed IPA - the kind of IPA that reminds me why I haven’t given up on the style.

ROGUE (2152) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 11, 2009
12oz bottle and on tap (brewery tap house). Poured a deep orange color with a big white frothy head and thick lacing. A big floral and citrus hop aroma. Hop blast up front with a great citrus flavor that is immediately balanced with malty sweetness. Oily and medium bodied with a nice carbonation.

coyotehunter (694) - , Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle thanks to MrBunn. The cap pops off and instantly Im greeted with a wonderful grapefruit and pine cloud. This beer smells fantastic. Pours a slightly oily and thickish dark yellow with a decent white head. Taste is quite good except for a rubbing alcohol funk that smacks the back of the tongue and lingers on down the pipes. Nice crisp flavors of citrus, pine and a light floral edge. Not sure I can get past the funk though...its quite distracting from an otherwise very good beer.

leaparsons (9100) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2009
Bottle. Golden with a thin foam. Aromas are toffee and pine with lots of tropical fruit. Fresh with apricot and soft spices. Floral with biscuit. Flavours are sweet, fruity and hoppy with tropical fruit syrup. Sweet pine hops with a peppery, spicy finish. Nice.

PartyBear (29) - Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2009
Poured from a chilled 355ml bottle. Appearance: Slightly cloudy, deep yellow, almost orange colour. Pours with a large fluffy head, which shows good retention. Carbonation seems light. Aroma: Heavily floral on the nose, with powerful aromatic citric hops. Taste: Big hoppiness in the flavour, imposing a perfumy bitterness right from the start. There are mild biscuity malts hiding under the hops, providing a little sweetness to balance the hops. Grapefruit also comes through along with hints of lemon. It all ends with a resurgence of the hops, providing a clingy bitter onslaught. Mouthfeel: Light and crisp on the palete, with a mild carbonic feel, and a kinda greasiness. Drinkability: This a superbly crisp and refreshing beer, served chilled it is great for the summer. The balance of flavours is almost perfect, providing a fantastic taste. The hops are potent to say the least, delivering a strong bitterness that is incredibly addictive. I want more!

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 28, 2009
12oz bottle from a recent trade (not sure how fresh this sample is but i digress)..... pours a slightly transparent hazy orange with a thin soapy white head.....orangey citrus hop nose with a little must ....refreshing citrus hop flavors with very little bitterness that barelyonly surfaces in the back of the mouth after the swallow. very light body overall with medium carbonation....very easy drinking and pretty enjoyable in many aspects.
