COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally brewed to withstand the epic voyages from the shores of England around the African Cape of Good Hope to the Indian Subcontient, the India Pale Ale has always been a beer for the adventurous soul. Thoroughly hopped with Amarillos in both the whirlpool and the fermenter, it was then transferred to our makeshift shipping cask, where it was dry-hopped again with Nugget and Columbus. Set adrift in our brewery without cooling, it was able to age as though it had been put to sea for six months. The result is an authentic double dry hopped and uniquely aged India Pale Ale reminiscent of something you’d find solace in on a balmy, Indian evening far away from home. Beware of tigers

Bottle. Pours a dark copper with minimal head. Aroma is of bitter hops. Taste is quite good. Initially bitter but fades into a nice IPA. Good flavor, nice finish. Well balanced with enough hops.

Deep amber, frothy head, medium bodied IPA. At first I thought this was a straightforward English style IPA, however, as the beer warmed the citrus flavors from the hops really came through.

Beautiful reddish amber one finger head. Very fruity citrusy aroma. Tastes a little soapy. Could use a bit more bitterness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TheEpeeist (3277) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 13, 2012
12 oz bottle. Clearish amber with a white head. Nose is orange, pineapple and toffee; light vanilla. Oily medium body with a lively tingle. Starts with some toffee, sour orange and lemon peel then chalky with quinine. Dry finish with coarse hops and wood. I liked the idea behind this brew and wonder if they could age it in a salt spray environment to improve on the authentic taste.

Pours a clear amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has caramel, tea, light earthy hops. Flavor follows suit...sweet caramely malts...boozy. mouthfeel is full and the finish is boozy and bitter.

odinstyr (559) - Hamilton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Pours a clear orange-red with a thick foamy tan head. Smells strongly of spruce, grass, citrus. Taste is bitter with a light sweetness. Pine and citrus hops abound, but with some malt balance

Billicus (286) - @RED BHUT JOIKIAS!, Paulsboro, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2012
bottle aroma, some flora hop notes, old malts color, medium, some lacing of the head taste, bitter front, flora esters, then smooth backend malt profile overall, its ok, would try again, but a little pricy though
