COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Unbelievable. Fruity, hoppy smell lasts even in an empty bottle. Taste is so...darn...good. Found this on accident when leaving for a trip to the Black Hills...forgot all my beer. I almost called 911. While passing through Rapid City, SD, I stopped at Safeway grocery. There it was, on the shelf, one 6pk left. I reached for it with hesitation, put it back , then returned. My life was never the same after that. Perfect beer..hands down.

As the name (or kind of the lack thereof) implies, it's a straightforward IPA. Nothing fancy, solid, and a bit dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

olsvammel (3278) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 6, 2014
Sample at SBWF 2014.Hoppy smell with some ripe fruit. Similar hoppy taste. A big aged with fading hops but still a nice base beer.

Poured a clear medium orange with a fluffy head. Good hops in the nose. In the mouth, the hops are surprisingly soft.

Bottle at Euston Tap upstairs. Aromatic, spicy, smooth hops, balanced with great finish. Proper good IPA. I love how Euston Tap positions the fridges outside of the bar tho. It’s easier to choose the one you want.

"another wish lister, and deserved. Even while sampling a double and a "quad" ipa, this one holds its own. Grapefruit and a bit of pine, aggressive and aromatic without being very agressive. Well done."

bottle, at the cask and barrel in edinburgh. pours a lightly hazed golden with a lingering white head; aroma of kiwifruit casserole; plenty of bitterness with fresh pineapple tart sweetness, loads of caramel and yet finishing quite dry

Very hoppy aroma. Golden color from bottle into a pint class with an rich just off white head. Medium mouth feel with a bit of carbonation. Very hoppy and a little intense. No sweetness or citrus. Piney.

Golden in colour, slightly cloudy. Aroma is of fresh peaches and pine. Taste is initially medium bitter, with the fruity taste of citrus and peach coming through then with a touch of malt. End is medium bitter. The taste belies it’s strength. Very refreshing and tasty. Excellent
