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.

444th rating of this brew. Bottle, Enjoy By 05/29/14. Nose is heavy crystal, sweet with leaky lemon juice and earthy hop character. Pours lightly hazy golden with a dense sudsy head. Taste is nice and firmly bitter with light grapefruit-style bitterness and even mild pucker, very lightly tart and strongly dry, only residual oily sweetness (from the hops?) seeping in toward the end. Faint biscuit and medium crystal, stronger pine, some caramel character but more interesting is the earthy and lightly gritty hop contribution. Medium-full body is crisp, nice and dank, and chewy with a nice little bit of resin. Worth a repeat.

Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Pours amber with small white head. Hoppy aroma. Pine, citrus, and hops make up the bulk of the flavor with some maltiness that fits its English style description. Flavor isnít particularly strong. Not particularly exciting but not bad.

asedzie (617) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Bottle in the Summit spring sampler. Pours deep golden with thick white head. Nose is very full but simple - fresh cone hops - some sticky piney resins, quite assertive. Flavor is lightly sweet, with a fullness of cereal grains and a bit nutty. Finish is strong pine-like hop flavors with a very pleasant and relatively strong bitterness. Hop resins stick in the mouth after the finish - this aftertaste is possibly the beers most striking characteristic and it reminds me of some of the better British pales Iíve tasted.

Tap - small foamy head, light copper color, fair size fruity (berries - surprising!) hop aroma and flavor, decent size sweet malt backbone, good balance - good English style IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - JUN 17, 2013
12oz bottle poured into glass. While this has some good hop character to it there really wasnít much to jot down. Itís a straight forward IPA, somewhat bland, but a good attempt at the style.

EricTeusink (703) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 11, 2013
Probably not fair that I rate this, as I think that it wasnít fresh. Poured a light amber with a smallish head. Good lacing. Hops were faded leaving a grainy, bready, and slighly piney flavor. I think the hops were gone. Bottle - Friendís House - Atlanta, GA

hondajunkie (89) - Tinley Park, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2013
Pours a dirty amber with a khaki head, decent lacing. Slight nose of pine, citrus that got better as the beer warmed up. Mostly dominated by a caramel malt scent. Not a whole lot going on here but just enough to be noticed. Abit of citrus on the tongue initially, followed by some maltiness ending with a touch of hop tartness. Once again not much going on in the amount of flavor but what is there seems balanced enough. A decent brew but nothing I would seek out.
