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

Cloudy reddish amber appearance with an average size beige head and good lacing. Floral hops hit first in the aroma with plenty of citrus in the background. A clean, pungent taste with a variety of hop characteristics and a solid malt backbone. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a long lasting finish that hides the abv pretty decently. A well made example in a style with a lot of competition.

Bottle. Nose beautifully citric, heaviest grapefruit, juice and rind in balance, a little oil, and super inviting! Lightly hazy yellow-golden with a dense and creamy off-white head. Strong bitterness with medium hop sweetness, fullish body is also dense and creamy, all of that lovely grapefruit and lemon and adding on with some tropical edges: pineapple, passionfruit, mango. Light supportive caramel and a touch of fizzy crystal. Pine and smooth resin. Well-hidden etoh. Clean and awesome.

Lightly hazy golden amber with a nice off white head, great lacing, cascades nicely... Tea hop aroma, citrusy, very bright and fresh... citrusy dry finish, not lingering... lively, light sweetness... Definitely not the caliber of big epic double ipas of the same abvs... almost bland in the middle of the sip.. flavors are a tad muddled... very drinkable for the abv, some toffee flavors intermixed with the tea like hops... smells better than it tastes...

(Draught) cloudyh rich orange with creamy medium tan head. Nose of lemon, citrus zest, also oddly a bit tart! Taste is bready, orange juice, a bit tart of all things, pulp of an orange, not bitter, tiny hint of lemon zest, creamy finish, clean. Creamy body. Easy drinking, prickly carbonation. A unique DIPA that I liked a lot.

boxofrane (1878) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Bottle from Mari’s. Pours clear copper with a small white head that dissipates quickly to a slight film. There is plenty of carbonation in the glass. The aroma has a good citrus punch with enough astringency to let you know this is well hopped. The taste is very citrus forward but has a nice bitterness on the finish. This well exceeded expectations!

Malty aroma similar to 90 minute. Hops also come out. It pours a clear but deep reddish amber. Taste is balanced yet a tad more to the spicy hoppy side. Instead of the sweet roundness of malt, there is a slightly sour lemon presence which makes this interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Cask at Memphis Taproom. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a creamy off white head. Aroma of floral and citrusy hops, pine, caramel, nuts and just overall a nice hop and malt mix. Flavor I was getting the same notes as the aroma. A little bit on the sweet side, but still very nicely done and much better than the regular Yards IPA
