COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the first Pale Ales were sailed around the Cape to arrive in India in the early 18th century, outcries of “Zounds! Jolly good! and Huzzah!” were heard across the East Indian subcontinent. Similar exclamations are to be expected when sniffing the piney aroma and tasting the big hops, huge citrus and candy-like malt of Pfriem’s own IPA. Drink up, Guv’nor.

poisoneddwarf (2211) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - MAY 16, 2016
16.9 oz bottle from Grocery Outlet. Bottled a little over a month ago. Aroma is tropical fruit, lemon, honey, grapefruit rind. Pours nearly clear old gold with a thick long-sustaining off-white fluffy head that leaves behind lots of webby lacing. Taste is highly bitter backed by a light candy sweetness. Not bad, but not sticking out from the crowd as much as I thought it would.

Plenty of piney hops are present, along with crackery pale malts, honey and ripening citrus fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat dry on the finish, with some pale bread, touches of alcohol, piney bitterness, citrus rind. Nice IPA.
