drunkenpolack (319) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Reviewed 2010 - India pours a clear light orange color with a two finger head and great retention. Lacing throughout the glass. The smell is really nice. Big amount of fruit. Citrus and grapefruit with a smell kick of floral hops. I also picked up a tad bit of spice and caramel backbone. Not as nice as real West Coast IPAs but nice and decent. Now when I first tasted this brew it made me think of one thing. Orange Jello. It tasted just like it. Oh and I love Orange Jello. Then as I had my second bottle I definitely noticed more grapefruit and the citrus took a back seat. Still present but just not as big. I also picked up some tropical fruit, a bready and caramel malt background, and some spice. The mouthfeel is medium boded, creamy, and silky with a nice dry and bitter finish, Overall I was really impressed with this one time brew and I really glad I picked up a case of this stuff. Itís not quite as great as other West Coast IPAs (Hey theyíre from PA) but itís a nice try.

Reviewed from notes. Picked up a bottle at Caponeís. Appearance brings in an orange body with a bit of haze to it. Slight copper coloring as well. Off white head with a bit of lace. The nose brings a good deal of citrus, with orange really standing out. A bit of zest. A bit of caramel in the background. The taste brings forward quite a bit of hops and bitterness along with some hop flavor. There is some mild caramel malt in the background--itís certainly not dominant. Feel is a bit dry and ever so slightly sweet. Good carbonation. A nice one off; I look forward to more from this series. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-21-2010

Pours a cloudy copper color with pine, hops, and bread. Strong hop flavor with hints of pine and slightly subdued by caramel and bread. While there is a solid hop presence, underlying toasted malts, and caramel really balance the beer.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 14, 2010
In short: An rough IPA. Earthy, heavily toasted, strangely dry.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed fresh a few months after the beer release. Thanks for the rare tick Fred.
The look: Almost clear golden-orange body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is tangy with fruity notes passion fruits and such. Taste is very toasted. I got a taste of dry bread crumbs and salad crouton with earthy caramel. Very hoppy and the hops have a strong resinous character. Leaves a long earthy dirty after-taste. I thought the beer was overall a bit rough and dirty. Not bad at all but not the type of IPA I could drink all night long. Why did Weyerbacher drop the Pale Ale and just called it India and why did they just brew a small batch of this very popular style? I really donít know. Nor do I know why there are no B batteries.

dagimp (742) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2010
From a bottle into a pint glass. NO date on bottle???? Pours a nice hay/copper color. Not much aroma. Lots of fluffy head and lacing. Mouthfeel is very, very good; extremely thick but not syrupy. Good carbonation. Taste is of piny hops with some bite to it. Overall a decent-good IPA. More in the British style as itís got a good balance between malt and hops, but hoppy none the less.

kbutler1 (1356) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 3, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2010 Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Bottle has no date on it so I am unsure when this one was bottled. Pours a opaque, orange color with a white head. Decent lacing. Aroma is not as hoppy as I would expect. The taste has a lot more hop presence than the smell and I am thankful for that. Subtle bitterness to start but then increases. I pick up almost a metallic taste, not sure how to describe. Mouthfeel is light/medium. Overall, I am fairly unimpressed with this one. Not a very good IPA in my opinion. 6/23/10: Was sent another bottle as an extra so I will give it a go again. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with surprisingly little head. Piney and citrus rind notes in the aroma. Pretty much the same as last time. Not a big fan of this one.

j12601 (6863) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a medium sized white head. Nice citrus and a little malt, touches of oxidization. Medium bodied, much more empty than expected, seems as if everything has fallen out, oxidized and dull. Finishes with a little bit of bitterness. Not impressed.

brokensail (11599) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 8, 2010
A: The pour is a nice amber color with a finger worth of tan head that recedes to a thin layer which sticks to the glass. S: The nose has plenty of grapefruit hops along with some oranges. Thereís a subtle pine and some bready and caramel malt behind it. T: The citrus flavors are mild with the beer leaning more toward the bread up front. The finish has some grapefruit along with a light pine. M: The body is medium with a somewhat low, smooth carbonation. D: The nose was much better than the flavors, but they are fairly unoffensive. Not an outstanding IPA, but certainly drinkable.

Draft at Redlight during Hopfest 10! Dark hazy orange pour. Big citrus hop aroma. Slightly sweet malt, spicy, citrus and bitter hop taste. Awesome.
