COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This special India Pale Ale was first brewed in honor of Princeton University's 250th anniversary and Triumph Brewing Company's first. It's a crisp, hoppy, high gravity ale. The high hopping rate and hefty alcohol content, once used to preserve this ale on the long ocean voyage to India, now provide it with a distinct aroma and robust flavor.

I had it on tap at Triumph. It pours a cloudy copper color with a decent off-white head and lacing. The aroma is hops, citrus, caramel, and bread. The taste is citrus, hops, toast, and caramel. There’s nice carbonation to it. I thought this was a a nice IPA. It doesn’t rely too heavily on the hops.

A bland and forgettable pale that is neither good nor bad. I forgot it thirty seconds before I finished drinking it.

See through gold, small white head. Nose has bits of citrus, wheat, grass, floral and obvious hop. A bit more hoppy than most IPAs. Citrus/pine hop taste. Once again, it is clean. Enjoy Triumph for that treat. Could use a bit more bite with the alcohol. Hoppy finish.

Pint from draft. Fantastic golden orange color with a half-finger white head. left foamy lines hanging throughout, all the way until empty. Great citrusy aroma, not hard on the nostrils. Taste was great with a smooth transition all the way through to the citrusy finish. Well palated and very well balanced. Overall, fantastic beer.

Draft at Triumph. Best of the tasting in my opinion. Clear yellow gold pour with tall white head. Aroma of grapefruit, lemon, saw dust. Taste is bright citrus and some pine/resin hop notes with a sweet malt backbone. Clean and smooth on the palate.
