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.

Indra (2689) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 30, 2003
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.

Radek Kliber (6587) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 6, 2003
Copper- amber. Faint hoppy aroma. Hoppy yes, but also with some malt and coffee could be found as well. Decent but slightly unbalanced structure.

Oakes (13156) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2003
Mild IPA of light copper colour and moderate hopping. As unexciting as my description.

jamrun (137) - Sioux Falls, South Dakota, USA - JUN 30, 2003
beautiful hop aroma, can detect several different hop smells, can also taste several hop varieties, a good malt background keeps the beer in check, finnishes dry with nice hop profiles

Hysteria (38) - USA - JUN 29, 2003
Nice hoppy malt aroma. Nicely hopped without being overstated. Pleasant malt just underneath the hops. An India pale ale everyone should be able to enjoy.

Super nice color of opaque darkish caramel-orange, coppery glow with a nice inch high head of off-white creamy thick foam, very thick and lucsiously rich looking with major hefty staying power. Lots of bigger bubbles dotted in its thickness and many areas of grouped spotty tight lace patches. Soft pleasant nose of floral hops with some citrus and peach, nice sweet malt backing and a note of musty grass. Freshness abound, nice sniffer. Taste is quite brillantly done soft but biting hops, a bit piney with a great mild earthy toned bitterness. The malt note picked up in the smell seems to never show up in the taste, but obviously there to keep this from being to hop heavy, which it is, but not in a bad way. Great dryness thats a bit smokey in the very late finish, nice! Feel is pretty full and solid medium body with excellent bittering drynesses in levels.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2003
Very inviting hop nose, caramel accent too. Orange/amber, creamy head. Hoppy, with a malt after taste. Pleasingly bitter, great tongue tingle. A good I.P.A. Thank You David.

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JUN 5, 2003
Copper color. Fairly strong hops aroma but not overpowering in the flavor.Sweet malty flavor that finishes with a nice suprising bite. A good IPA!

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 2, 2003
Pleasant aroma of hops and light fruity aroma. Pours an orange-brown, cloudy, with a nice head. Nice malt presence for an IPA; a slight creaminess. What I liked about this beer is that the hops were nicely done. The were present but not overpowering (ala Arrogant Bastard Ale). The result is an enjoyable beer with a nice hoppy blast.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2003
Sharp hoppyness in both the aroma and in the flavour. I think the hops throw this beer a bit out of balance, the rest of the beer (particularly the malt) is a bit thin in comparison to the amount of hops, its not bad, theres enough flavour in this one, its just the balance and the enjoyabiltity factor that i didn't particularly enjoy. Reminded me of Schlafly Winter ESB, but perhaps not as strong.
