COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A highly hopped contemporary India Pale Ale. Brewed with copious amounts of Cascade and Amarillo hops, this IPA is balanced nicely with a strong malt body. A great beer for any occasion. Brewed originally as the beer ration for British troops in India, it was preserved with extra hops and higher alcohol for the long sea voyage. India Pale Ale, IPA as it is usually referred to, has become America’s second most popular microbrewery style. If you enjoy a rich, aggressive hop flavor, this is your ale of choice.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - MAR 28, 2013
THOUGHTS: Nothing crazy. Just a well-made IPA. Nice balance and great transition. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a light to medium orange with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished an left good lacing. The aroma contained moderate bread, caramel and cracker; light pine, orange and other citrus hops; eventually heavy resinous hops; and apricot. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and moderately bitter; while the finish was moderately sweet and nearly heavily bitter with a long duration. There was caramel, pale malt, bread, cracker, citrus hops, pine hops, resinous hops, orange and apricot. The medium body was a little oily with fizzy carbonation and a dry and slightly metallic finish.
