COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA has lots of malt and hop character. This style originated in the 1700’s as a strong, flavorful ale, which was able to survive the ocean voyage from England to India during the British occupation.

A big fluffy white head. Pale copper color. Rich, tart nicely hopped. Very enticing beer from the label to the palate. Superb, gives Stone IPA a run for their money.

(draft) Orange body with small beige head. Aroma is straight-on English-style floral hops, very even. Taste is floral hops, medium sweet, good malty backbone. Nice chewiness.

Andrew196 (1091) - Katy, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2003
Typical IPA color, average head, lacey. hoppy aroma with notes of brown sugar. Not overdone...congrats! True to the style of IPA with an excellent malt/hop balanced taste preceding the mildly bitter finish.

Medium brown color. Small head. A hoppy, malty IPA. Good flavor, not a lot if bitterness in the aftertaste. Hearty but mellow.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 3, 2002
Re-Rate 10/03/02: A slightly cloudy amber color, the head is ’mountainous’, frothy, beige, long lasting as is the lace. Nose is floral, malt, sweet, and a nice ’Sniffing Beer’. Front is malt, sweet, the top light, the finish is appropriately hopped, acceptably dry, and satisfactorily carbonated. A good drinking beer, not great, but darn good actually. Ranks #587 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - SEP 28, 2002
Had this from the cask at Papago Brewing. One of the best IPAs I’ve had. Citrussy, flowery aroma of american hops. Excellent balance of malt sweetness with hop bitterness and flavor. One of my favorite beers.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2002
Wow! Acidy, sweet, hoppy, prickly-in-the-back of the throat. Like the APA of theirs I just had but amped up a notch. Interesting, again. Thanks to BigAl96.

legion242 (2172) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2002
Pale copper color; Thick head with a ’pancake’ surface; Aroma was mild and bready. Dry, tart across the tongue. Very nice floral character. One of the subtlest and nicest IPA’s that I have ever had. Wonderful balance. Well Done!!

The hops came right at me but finished with a nice maltiness. Good balance. One of my favorite IPAs so far.
