COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our English Style Export IPA features 100% English hops and a big malt backbone built upon pale and caramel malted barley. The hop varietals, Pilgrim and East Kent Goldings, lend a quality of lemon and spice, which play off of the fruity flavors contributed by the London ale yeast.

Westmeister (1830) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 21, 2014
November Ale Alpharetta. More hoppy than any other English variety IPA. Nice light citrus, earthy hops with a solid malt backbone. Well balanced with notes of various fruitiness.

Cybercat (3500) - Georgia, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Pours a hazy, barely translucent apricot with a fairly thick cream head. Woody hops dominate the aroma but let through a citrus hint. Flavor is hoppy, mainly resiny, with a lemon and grapefruit underpinning. Smooth texture has some good fizz and leaves a hoppy and grapefruit finish.

hotstuff (4269) - Indiana, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Rated on 10-03-2014 (Bottle) This beer has a small off-white head that mostly diminishes, cloudy butterscotch body, very fizzy, fast rising carbonation, floaties, and a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, fruity and caramel malt. The flavor is moderately bitter, citrus hops, fruity, and caramel malt. This beer’s mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and it is medium bodied. This beer is most quaffable and it worth trying. It is a hop head beer!

tmoreau (2565) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - NOV 1, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2014 Shared 12 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a hazed, orange hue, with a modest layer of soft white foam that diminished expeditiously to a bubbly ring & film, and left some spotty lacing on the glass. The nose was not overly expressive notes of light grain, dried apricot, and light spice. The taste presented moderate earthy & lingering hop bitterness to a medium body, with average carbonation. The finish was astringent, tart & dry. Not bad, not wowed. Probably a fresher bottle next time. The orangey gold color was hazed, with more persistence to the frothy, soft white head, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was a bit of marmalade sweetness, some earthiness & greenery, ripened stone fruit, and touches of resin & tropical scent as pineapple. Earthy & rind-like hop bitterness was more pronounced, with dryness, and a lingering nature. There was enough tempering malt & sweetness to create a nice sessionability. +.3

beerbrains (26) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Pours an amber color with a white foam head that doesn’t last that long. Spicy aroma, medium sweet taste with a short bitter finish. Thick texture, okay overall. Not my favorite but I did enjoy the bottle I had.

hoju777 (152) - FRANCE - OCT 8, 2014
Smells ok. Sweet and iced tea like. Suspended stuff (hops?), like the APA. Tastes ok. Like sour iced tea with a bit of banana. Hmm. It’s not bad. Nice thick palate. The taste is the worst part of this beer. Everything else is really good. How weird.

Bottle from Beer Culture in New York September 2013. Sweet fruit aroma with Passionfruit dominating. A good solid IPA.

thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - OCT 3, 2014
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy with a frothy top fine to large sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent golden orange colored body and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and bready. The sharp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a biting hoppy aftertaste. The sharp flavor contained notes of bitter and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.
