COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional ale was originally brewed in England for the British troops stationed in India. Double dry-hopped,it has intense hop flavors and aromas delicately balanced with a potent, yet delicious, malty sweetness.

Randy's Notes: "Our IPA is of the imperial or double style, therefore much stronger than the normal IPA's now found everywhere. It has a very balanced but different flavor than most US micro types focusing on more on malt and hop balance where CA IPA's emphasize massive hop aroma and bitterness."

Editor's Note: also known as IPA2 Double IPA.

Ungstrup (29223) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2006
A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet hoppy and malty, while the flavor is sweet malty with primary notes of caramel. Lacks a bit of hops for my liking.

argo0 (11452) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 1, 2007
(1L Bottle labeled as IPA2, thanks BückDich) Small but persistent beige head atop crystal clear amber body. Aroma is medium sweet, orange/grapefruit, grassy. Taste is medium sweet, orange/floral, grassy, light dusky. Some dryness in the finish. Light-medium body. At the time I drank it I thought this was very subdued for an IIPA, as it seemed an IPA (at most) in bitterness intensity -- funny to see that it’s in fact aliased to an IPA.

bhensonb (10935) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle from Brusin Ales as IPA2 Double IPA.. Pours hazy light amber with a transient white head. Aroma of sweet burnt caramel with a little floral hop. Med body more or less. Flavor is quite bitter. Underlying cooked caramel. Hop is intense. Rather uncertain as to the type. Guessing citrus/resin. There’s no doubt this is a hoppy little ale. And it’s a lot more balanced than most of these things. Just wish I could assign a name to the hop(s). Going with floral and resin. Hope that’s not too far off.

Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear brown color with a moderate off-white frothy head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hoppy and malty aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet small alcohol bite finish of moderate duration. This is a solid beer.
