COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional English style was originally brewed with extra hops to help it survive the voyage to India. Our IPA is enlightened by spicy herbal hops with a hint of caramel malt sweetness.

Do I detect a hint of cloves??? NO! Do I detect a hint of pepper? NO! Do I detect a hint of sassiness? NO! What do I detect? Chocolate tones and an inflated price. Why me God? Why? Hardly bitter. Not very tasty.....woe is me. Woe is me. NEVER AGAIN. NEVER. This stuff broke my heart. And only Blatz can make me whole again.

bytemesis (2572) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a large off white head that dissipates slowly and leaves nice lacing. Downhill from there unfortunately. Aroma its lager like with strong notes of grain, grass and corn. Flavor about the same, with earthy and pine notes. Medium sweet and lightly bitter finish. Medium body. Not good.

GuinnessHong (147) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Dark golden, with medium head. Mild hoppy aroma. Hop bitterness is relatively mild for an IPA. Flavors also include caramel and earthiness. Slight bitter aftertaste, that lingers. Fairly crisp & refreshing.

One of my first craft beer experiences. Not a bad IPA but lacks the hop taste I have come to love and expect.

AWISLguy (1048) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Bottle from Otto’s in Brown Deer. Pours an unclear orangey-pink, almost pink grapefruit colored, with a white 1 inch head. Nice lacing. Aroma has some fruit and some caramel with some old socks. Taste is of bitter citrus, sweet caramel and some resin. Finishes tartly bitter and lasts a while, unfortunately not in a good way. Not a pourer, but not too well put together either. Interesting that is tries to lean toward hoppy, but it does not execute it well at all.

wimpyjoe (2950) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2012
A slightly hoppy India Pale Ale, but is disappointingly bland when drank.

Bottle - light orange in color with a medium head. Not much to this one really. Has a more malty than hoppy taste. Medium mouthfeel. Average.

Just not that exciting. I recommend Summit's Maibock or Extra Pale Ale over this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dresden (730) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
Clear ruby with a frothy head.Almost no aroma. Light hops, light malt. Taste is more malt than hops. Not a great beer.

Fairly standard IPA. This beer does have a nice hoppy bite to it. However, there aren’t a tonne of other flavors or notes to pick up on.
