COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditionally made strong & highly hopped so it would keep on its long journey, from England to India during British rule. Ours is a wonderfully bitter beer with a spicy aroma, some fruity characteristics and a lingering hop finish. A great aperitif!

Tap at JCBF09. Wonderful smelling IPA with a hazy burnt orange color. Nose is fantastic with lots of floral and citrus hops, like smelling fresh grapefruits and apricots. Taste is very hoppy but not near as bitter as I was expecting, very well balanced with alot of lasting caramel. Hits of orange and a unidentifiable spiciness make this quite complex and different. Very very good.

Thanks go out to my secret Santa Deuane my growler poured into my Selin’s Grove pint glass produced very little head maybe a wisp of lace. This was on top of a hazy amber colored brew. The aromas are incredible some of the best I have experienced in an IPA and the first time I can truly say I grabbed an orange note in a brew. Nice floral hops to this brew as well Flavors are great citrus, orange and grapefruit. There is enough sweetness from the caramel malts to balance it off. Medium mouthfeel but the carbonation was a little lacking I think I chock that up to the growler This is a very drinkable IPA more on the sweet side of the balance but close to being perfect. A true recommend in my book. Thanks again Santa Disclaimer some of my score I know is because of the growler would love to try it fresh

Sampler platter. Tarnished brass appearance with a citrus grapefruit aroma. Citrus hop flavor with a tart acidic feel. Grapefruits and tangerine with a flavor that lingers.

Poured a beautiful amber/orange, with a good head even from a growler. There was a lively carbonation that lasted through the beer and there was lacing left on the glass. The aroma is grapefruit and piney hops, just awesome and very refreshing. The beer is bitter, but a nice bitter that melds perfectly with the maltiness. The beer finishes smooth, not bitter like some IPA’s. They hops last the whole way through the beer.

Draft @ Selins Grove. Pours a bright, slightly hazy golden-orange color; off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Lots of resiny, sticky, fruity hops in the aroma; apples, tree fruits, and oily, sweet fruit cocktail; really nice nose. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: intensely chewy, sticky and resiny fruity hoppiness; no roughness along the edges; relaxed bitterness; generous, great hop character; would bump up a couple points with a bit more carbonation. Lengthy finish: fruity bitterness, bread, and toasty malts.

On tap at the brewpub. Fresh, prickly sweet hop juices flow from this beer. Pines, citrus rinds, and spice all coalesce into a glorious warm glowing hop cone. Dank, dank. Pours a bit opaque in gold-orange, with a rim in white. Flavor is richly textured and flavored, with a great balance of both juicy hop flavor and hop bitterness. Combines into that glorious bready grapefruit and sends off a lot of rich caribbean and Indian spice notes. Great hop use. The malt background develops a nice sweetness for balance. Alcohol lends to rising the hops, but it’s not overwhelming. Excellent balance, hop use and finish. Delightful.

redlight (2303) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Citrus, musty, alittle catty, with hints of GANJA! Pours golden amber. Bitter, very bitter, pine resin (feels heavy) sweet malts in the background. Finishes a little bready. Great IPA.

Sampled from growler, courtesy Beerlando. Clear copper-orange with a thin white head. Strong grassy hop aroma with some minor citrus notes. Moderate hop character throughout the taste, nice peppery finish. Clean and aggressive IPA. Well done.

20061216 Juicy fruit and sweet aromas. Flavor is not so sweet, but not dry. Medium to light body. Smells great still but has a lazy quality about it (?).

dchmela (2560) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2008
Growler courtesy Beerlando. Medium amber reddish tan with a thick off white head. Spicy grapefruit hop aroma. Really assertive fresh hops, great aroma. Big malty taste with a nice hop bitterness. Very balanced taste, not too much malt nor hops, yet still powerful. Dry citrus tang in the aftertaste. Another great beer from Selins.
