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.

Burnt copper in color, large frothy head with lacing. Flowery hop aroma. Crisp clean taste with a nice hop kick on the finish. An excellent brew

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 15, 2003
A deep burnished copper color on the pour, the head prodigious in size, frothy in its texture, the color a winsome light tan and the resultant lace a fine silky sheet to conceal the glass. Light hop floral aroma, sweet malt, crisp, fresh and clean a real treat for the nose, the start is malt, somewhat sweet, the top slender in its feel. Finish has a perky acidic bite, the hops pertinent but not overpowering, drinkable and a nice middle-of-the-road IPA.

Strong example of the style for hop-heads, though not much beyond. Pleasing copper color under a firm head has a malty smell that doesn't appear in the taste. Mouthfeel is nice, though hop bite kind of hits you with few subtleties. Hoppy enough to get me sneezing, though the matliness returns in the aftertaste. Sampled on draft.

Great beer to shoot the breeze with at the Mock Trial nationals, especially when you are doing it around a nice trophy. Otherwise just your average IPA.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2003
Pours a clear, deep copper color with a small off-white head that lingers. The aroma is very light, but I detect some malts with a touch of hops. Medium body with medium carbonation, the flavor is quite hoppy but there is a fair amount of malt sweetness to balance that out. The finish is bitter at first, but then fades into a lingering sweetness.

Red, copper color. Artifical bitter hop flavor. Too present to fly under the radar. Good note is that it hits rather soon and then moves on.

I didn't like this. Had a very bitter bite to it, and slightly harsh as well. Appearance was OK, nice head that didn't stick around. Good mouth feel, but I just couldn't get around that bitterness. Won't get this again.

JoeM500 (1906) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - FEB 25, 2003
Dark orange with foamy off-white head. Good Brussels lace. Floral, almost perfumy hops to the nose. First sip is sticky, syrupy. Hints of cherry (almost cough medicine flavor) sweet malts are weak and and the background. Hops is gritty, like a cough drop. A Halls Hops-flavored Montho-lyptus cough syrup.

WabashMan (1014) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 16, 2003
I'm quite torn on the appearance, because the color is very nice(dark, reddish brown), but the head is thin. The aroma is nice, but a little weak in my opinion. Flavor is...well...hoppy. And that's about it. Not a lot of complexity to the flavor...mostly just hops. A real hop lover might enjoy this one, but I prefer a bit more depth to the beer. However, a decent effort.

Wow. Talk about an unbalanced beer. The hops are pounded into this thing with no distinguishable malt to help it along. Sour bitterness throughout. One bottle of this bastard gave me heartburn, something I've never experienced because of beer before. I have no problem at all giving this a low score.
