COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Wow, I can't believe this is an English IPA. The color is classic, gold with a medium to large head. Aroma is sweet and piney. Twigs and earthy flavors I've grow to expect in a English style IPA are that prevailent. No bitterness to speak of, prefectly balanced. Creamy, but light mouthfeel, moderately sweet finish. Really nice IPA, David!

I drank it off a Maudite glass (on a Maudite coaster!) and I must say it looked pretty much like the Maudite! Hazy orange with a rather small off-white head, but long-lasting. Aroma is earthy hops, very grapefruity. Taste is bread, piney hops. Finish is moderately bitter: very long, dry and hoppy. Mouthfeel is slightly foamy, overall pretty thin. It lacks the deep balancing malt character which I love, malt is present, but goes rather unnoticed instead of enhancing the enjoyment and complexity.

Muddy copper. Fluffy tan head. Aroma of caramel, butterscotch, brown sugar, & light citrusy hops. Medium, buttery feel. Very earthy beer w/ good butterscotch-y malt background. Very bitter finish w/ some fruity character.

Typical, prickly, resinous hops leaning towards pineapple and pear syrup...Sincere caramel malts jabber incessantly, making themselves a permanent niche under the thick, everlasting, sticky foam...A simple but well-made paradigm of inherited knowledge...

SimonPatrice (312) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 1, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2003 Golden/copper body, icing sugar coated resinous hop buds aroma. Piny flavor balanced by some caramel sweetness. A bit of breadiness at the very end.

CapFlu (4733) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2003
(650ml Bottle) Nice thin, white head and a copper body. Very attractive aroma of hemp, hops and perfume. Love it. Potent, bitter hoppy taste. Gorgeous - Amazing how different an IPA is from the West Coast and Central Canada is! Bitter, hop finish. Very good!

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2003
Nice medium sized off white head that bubbles away. Body is a hazy amber colour. Aroma is quite hoppy and perfumy. A definate hop flavour with some sweetness for balance. Finish is very bitter. A good beer but doesn't stand up to many other IPA's I've consumed.

Oakes (13303) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2004 Cloudy golden-amber colour. Huge C-hop aroma. Lemony, balanced with pale malts, and finishing crisp, this is a pretty respectable IPA.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2003
Golden, white head. Funny citrusy and plasticky nose. Hops are dominant side by side a quiet malt. This IPA didn't find itself in a good position beside Bhagwans and comes up looking lazy.
