Brewed using a blend of English malts. Magnum hops are used for the early hop addition, with Goldings for finishing and dry hopping. A very flavorful and hoppy ale.

Note: This beer is no longer made and has not been bottled for a few years now. It was replaced by Torpedo.

More than drinkable IPA, but lacks the body to be a really great real ale.

Bottle 355ml. A clear golden colour with an off-white head. An aroma of malt, caramel and hops. The taste is sweet and light bitter. A medium body, oily texture, average carbonation and a long dry finish.

A nice spicey hops bite, more so than the regular Pale Ale, and not quite as floral. I definitely recommend trying it if you like IPAs.

Bottle. Clear dark amber pour with just a little haze at the center and and a thin tan head. Aroma of toasted malt and a hint of lemon. Very restrained hop presence in the flavor. Mostly bready, metallic and nutty with some citrus, toffee and light caramel. Crisp texture and a drying, slightly bitter finish. Not your typical West Coast hop bomb by any means but not what they were going after with this brew.

I had to be nice and at least rate this beer as a 1... this was the worst beer Iíve ever had, I ended up pouring it down the kitchen sink drain. I guess Iím just not an IPA fan.... to each his own.

A great big hop aroma and taste. The finish is a bold pine and alcohol blend. It has a very english taste. I like it. I was surprised to see the Alcohol was only 6.9 %.

I really enjoyed the malty hop taste of this I.P.A.. It had a beautiful color, and nice aroma.

ReAle (120) - Rome, ITALY - MAR 23, 2011
Bevuta in bottiglia. IPA senza infamia e senza lode, dorata penetrante con buona schiuma, correttamente luppolata ma senza niente di eccezionale. Corpo medio. Discreta.

Not much of a scent, light golden color. Can lightly taste the hops, really drinkable.

Light amber colour with a thin head. Faint hop aroma. Flavour is mildly sweet with medium bitterness and taste of hops.
