COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A trio perfectly blended hops packed (literally!) into the brew give this intensely flavorful beer incredibly bold aromas and moderately high bitterness. Balanced with caramel malt sweetness India Style Pale ales are copper in color and traditionally fortified with higher alcohol and lots of hops to preserve the beer for its long travels. Wonderfully big and bold hoppy flavors are a perfect pairing with spicy foods or for those looking for a beer to reward them with the complexity of flavors so relished by "hop head" beer lovers.

Pours clear darkish amber, with airy off-white head. Interesting aroma of tamarind and malt. Bitter, hoppy flavur, with sweetish, malty notes and touches of some rather bitetr spice. Mildly bitter aftertaste. More interesting than good but drinkable.

Reimer96 (1287) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Pours a hazy orangish copper with a huge frothy and creamy off white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine, resin, light tropical fruits and caramel... All nicely balanced. Flavor is caramel malts, tropical fruits, grapefruit, resin and pine... A great explosion with a big bitterness on the finish that is a touch astringent. Great ipa that?s easy to drink just needs to be a bit smoother to be a great ipa.
