COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only the strong survive.

IPAs were originally brewed to survive the epic sea voyages from England to India. Ours is no different. Hailing from a firm malt background and loaded through and through with hops, this beer will surely survive the journey from your fridge to your couch.

sloth (2607) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2004
Small offwhite head, short lived, minimal lace. Murky brown color. Nice hop nose. Medium body. Fruity, citrus flavors, mild malt underpinnings. The 8% alc. is well hidden. Dry finish, fruity, different.

TheBeerGod (5502) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 11, 2004
Bottle empties revealing an orange tinted amber bosy with a moderate foamy tan head. Nice hoppy aroma. Citrus fruit and some milder malted notes. Very nice taste! The citrusy hops are there but the alcohol and sweeter notes balance this one out nicely. Mouthfeel is a bit oily and bitter but it goes with the territory, so to speak. Finish is more citrus notes and is bitter. Very good IPA! The alcohol is not really that noticeable either amking this a dangerous beer.

Best tasting ’strong’ ale I’ve tried. It comes off pretty bitter, probably from the high alcohol content, but the sweet, hopsy Yards taste is strong and satisfying. It’s especially tasty on tap.

DocLock (8400) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 21, 2004
Pours turbid straw colored. Aroma of hops, citrus, and some pine. Tastes hoppy, with some citrus and fruitiness. Good complexity.

hopdog (9642) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 18, 2004
Poured a hazy amber color with a large head and some particles. Hoppy citris (oranges) and floral aromas. Citris tastes. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent hop bite.

Too much head for an IPA. The neck filled out a pint glass. Nice color. You can taste the hops but it is too weak for my tastes in an IPA.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 2, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2005 Cask conditioned. Very aromatic beer that poured well. Hoppy but expected more of a kick out of it. Extremely enjoyable with a fine meal.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAY 22, 2004
Amber-yellow body. Head was like being at a foam party, absurdly huge and white. Took the better part of 10 minutes to die down. Brighy hoppy taste, melon, lemon, pineapple. Very crisp, delicious and dry. I was very surprised by the good nature of this beer. Give it a try. Purchased a 12 oz bottle at Chevy Chase wine and spirits in Washington, DC.

beerlover82 (220) - Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2004
Pours a deep orange with big, rich creamy head with good lacing that sticks to the glass. Aroma is of malt, some fruitiness and faint hops. I can definitley taste some malt, but hops are light. This is not really an IPA, as it is too light on hops and a little too sweet. Supposedly has 8% ABV, but I could not notice it. What a dissapointment. I wasted another $30 on another wannabe IPA. As a beer it's pretty damn good, but as an IPA it blows.
