COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Recreated from an IPA recipe Mike Hoops found from the year 1800. The recipe was altered slightly with the british style hops additions (5 lbs per barrel) spaced out more during the boil to allow the beer to be drinkable now instead of months after a sea voyage.

Pours a lovely hazy peach color. Aromas are great.. That nice bubblegum aroma that goes with some esbs. Tropical fruit too. Flavors are sweet and fruity at first before a rather abrasive bitter finish.

Tap - fair size thick head, dark gold color, earthy hop aroma and flavor, good size malt balance, surprisingly mild alcohol notes - not bad overall, but not the best British style IPA ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

sample draft at brew pub. poured coppery color with thin off white head. aroma had a grassy and resinous feel...some caramel malt notes, hint of spice. flavor was interesting...malt hits up front, then the very grassy hop noted hit..gets pretty bitter, and then a vegetable-like flavor the end...some I was with equated it to ’sweet pea’ like...odd, thought not particularly bad. palate smooth and good....decent if not overwhelming offering.

Sample on tap at Town Hall Brewery. Pours a copper color with white head. Earthy, grassy, grainy flavors. Ok.

Tap @ Town Hall. Pours a bit hazy dark golden appearance with a white head. A bit fruity, earthy, herbal hoppy, slightly toasted malty aroma. Mild orange fruity, cracker, herbal grassy hoppy flavor. Ok.

I can this on cask at the Townhall Tap. Good balance in this IPA that favors unique hop blend.

Tap at brewery. Pours copper with off-white head. Aroma is caramel malts and earthy hops. Lasting bitterness, but very good.
