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!

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JUL 20, 2008
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 (2318) - 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.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAY 6, 2008
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.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - APR 26, 2008
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 (3013) - 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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 25, 2008
Growler courtesy Kramer17801. Pours a clear orange amber color with a foamy, off-white head. Minimal spotty lacing noted. The nose shows big citrus hops, covering oranges, grapefruit, and lemon. Toasted bread and light caramel comprise a nice malty backdrop for the hops to do their thing. The flavor is again quite citrusy and bitter, yet incredibly well balanced. There’s a juiciness to this, almost like the beer was garnished with a splash of fresh lemon and grapefruit. Medium bodied, smooth, and easily quaffable. Not particularly complex, but still a really good IPA.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2008
Growler from Kramer. Copper pour, faint white head. Aroma is biscuity, citrus and grapefruit. Flavor is citrus, grapefruit and some pine with a bready finish. Medium bodied and lower carbonation but probably cause of a week old growler. Not much to say, citrus, grapefruit, medium bitterness and just a good IPA.

jredmond (7661) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 14, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. The aroma is sweet and hoppy. Taste is hop as well, but not too bitter, actually sort of sweet. Nice.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - OCT 5, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours cloudy light amber with retentive off-white head. The aroma is pine and spicy hops, a little bit of sweet muffin. The flavor is spicy hops and a touch of burnt toast. Decent bitterness, some fruity notes, and a warm pine finish. A bit tannic in the aftertaste.

drawde (115) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 29, 2007
I’m tasting a dead flat, two-week old growler, but this one has a lot of apricot smell, look and flavor; probably not bitter enough for my taste; but not bad at all.
