COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. George India Pale Ale is a traditional English style ale with a distinct hop spiciness from imported 100% UK Fuggles hops. Deep copper in color, our IPA has a full malt base and a pronounced hop aroma. It was awarded the GOLD medal in the international category as the best India Pale Ale at the 2000 Beauty of Hops English Ale Awards.

Nothing remarkable about the smell, decent appearance, nice for the style. As pictured to the left. Initial taste was vegetal and cooked, like overdone broccoli. I was somewhat surprised as it actually improved considerably as it warmed up. I was expecting the opposite to occur. The last bit was actually rather satisfying. Will need to re-rate this at some point in time.

Lovely, deep amber brew. Crystal clear with a small, fizzy, khaki-colored head. Quickly and fully dissipating with no lacework. The nose holds lots of caramel, milk chocolate, vanilla, toasted cashews and light citrus fruit. Excellent flavor! Caramel, alcohol, cocoa and plum up front. Great, moderately bitter and lightly pungent (buttermilk) hop presence on the backside. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, bitter, astringent, chewy finish with a woodsy, wet, hay-laden flavor at the wee end. Damn fine, underrated IPA!

Thin head--hoppy nose. NOt much else on aroma. Too dark for style. Fuggles hop flavor prevalent. Crisp finish.

Quiet intro.Rocky off white head, some laceing.Hazy light copper color.Fruity malty nose with some bready notes also.Thats it, its down hill from here.Noticeable astringency and some metallic flavors.Finish is dry leaving the metallic flavors on the sides of the tongue and sides of yer mouth.Med/thin body.A little cardboardy also.Oh well! Finished the bottle, against my better judgement.

Poor, very poor. I drank a Stone IPA, then a homebrewed wheat beer, and then this. I don't know if I can finish the drink. A thick, foul malt. There's a bit of hop, jumping about, but it's the malt that kills the beer. Thoroughly unpleasant. It sticks in your sinus, cloyingly, and tastes skunked, but by design. Displays perfectly the difference between a good beer and a mediocre -- no, awful -- beer. To those who define this 'English,' I've just come back from England and not come close to a beer so frightful. Drink this and drink newky brown with a hop flower.

Not one of the better IPA's I've had, light copper in color, very thin & bubbly head that didn't hang around all that long, not much by way of aroma either, just a little hint of floral hoppiness in the nose, too light-bodied, very thin, the aftertaste hinted of a genuine IPA with subtle ideas of bitterness & dryness, not a great example of the style

Golden colour, little to no smell...very hoppy beginning, not much aftertaste, but not a ’bad’ beer!

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 7, 2003
Very balanced and very British style. Superb bitterness that lasts and lasts. Hops are fruity, malts are more biscuity than in almost any beer I"ve had...the polar opposite of the huge sweet malting in the big-boy American IPAs out west. Luscious mouthfeel. This brewery is doing things right, IMO. Gracias, Senor U.

This is a toned-down American IPA with fruity hops in aroma and flavor. Wonderfully unpasteurized. I believe this rather similar to Acme IPA, but with a much slimmer frame. This is very good and in keeping with this brewer’s formula: restraint above all. The palate and clarity show these fellows know their trade. Poor head and lacing however detract from this otherwise delicious, elegant brew.

daalamar (405) - new albany, Indiana, USA - NOV 30, 2002
Decent amber color with a thin lacy head. Aroma lets you know that the hops are there, but there are grassy fresh earthy aromas as well. Flavor is mild with a nice hop finish. Overall this beer is alright but dosn’t last long at all. Very Quaffable
