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.

Bottle pours a nice amber color with a small head that leaves some lace. The aroma is somewhat fruity and very hoppy with some malt. The flavor is nice and malty and with a good solid hop citrus finish. The palate is nice and medium rich and fizzy. Overall, not bad.

I am not a fan of IPA style beers, but this was one that I could handle drinking for a change. It poured a small sized ivory, smooth and creamy head that contained fine-large sized bubbles that quickly dissipated. The body of this beer was cloudy and uncarbonated with a copper hue. The nose consisted of malt, hops, and fruits with a hoppy and lingering aftertaste flavor. It was tingly and smooth on the palate and was medium bodied. This beer left a good amount of lacing on the sides of my glass.

This brew poured a large head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting off-white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing and a softly carbonated transparent light brown colored body. The aroma is mediumly hopped and the mouthfeel is initally smooth until the hops kick in. The flavor is mostly hops with a little bit of roast kicked in. It ia a rather mild IPA and is not as strongly hopped as some I have had.

Good amber color,small head that faded slowly,The aroma was malt and hoppy with a slight citrus side,mostly grapefruit.The taste was mildly malty but mostly hoppy and grapefruity with an after taste of hops and grapefruit.This brew seemed a bit one sided but overall it wasn't to bad,and fairly drinkable.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2006 I have to say Pale ales to me are not my style Although I do like Bass. Way too bitter and I really cannot tell the difference between theese and India ones. Summit seemes to be a good company but like all my pale ale experences its flavor is ok but I get a horrid medicinal aftertaste and a headache none for me thanks.

Ok IPA. Hazt orange color with a quickly diminshing fine head. Medium hoppy aromas, grapefruit. Hints of malt. Nice hop flavors, grapefruit and bitter. Malty caramel flavors develop. A slight bitter aftertaste. Light-Medium body, a tad watery.

This reminds me a lot of Schell's Pale Ale--reasonably strong & malty body with a good dose of hoppiness. I found it interesting that the hopping isn't "floral" or "citrus-y" like many IPAs, but it's very distinct & noticeable nonetheless. Appearance is what you'd expect; kind of a medium amber with a smallish head. Very enjoyable beer.

I like this one. Just hoppy enough for me, it goes down good. A thin short lived head,but a very good beer. I have already gone back for more.

Agree with Indra: light aroma and light flavor in reference to the standard bearers Stone, Avery, Big Daddy, etc. Bit of a dusty flavor in there somewhere. Not the best.

Relatively faint aroma, some woodsy, citrusy hops and malt sweetness. Medium amber color with suspended particles throughout and a light, creamy head. Spicy, hoppy flavor, blending with a lightl caramel and honeyish malt sweetness. Creamy mouthfeel. Ok.
