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.

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.

guzzler67 (1509) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 23, 2004
Cask conditioned. Unfiltered bright amber with a small head that left good lacing. Faint citrus in the aroma. Taste was very well balanced; was actually expecting much more of an intense American hop to dominate, but the malts held their own. Maybe the cask conditioning contributed to this. Dry, slightly tart, finish.

mkobes (2141) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2004
Nice aroma. Orangey yellow in color with a nice head. Lots of american hops. Its a good beer. Good Ipa. Very hoppy. Decent beer.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2004
Tap at Andy's. Cloudy orange yellow with a white head. Fresh hop nose, of the American variety. Hops dominate over malt, leaving the illusion of the beer being a tad bit thin for 8%. Decent overall.

argo0 (11562) - Washington DC, USA - APR 12, 2004
Murky amber body with small beige head, leaves nice lacing. Aroma is sweet, grapefruit/pine, some melon. Taste is mild sweet, with grapefruit that begins mild but grows as it crosses your tongue, reaching a nice crescendo of intensity by the swallow. Medium body, no sign of the elevated alcohol. An excellent beer.

Kathy (241) - Washington DC, USA - APR 12, 2004
Small, rich head. Unfiltered golden brown color. Crisp, gingery aroma with a bit of floral hopiness to it. Lovely, well-balanced, hoppy flavor with a rounded, slightly malty finish. A tiny bit of grapefruit and a rounded bitterness in there, too. A very pleasant and enjoyable beer.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2004
Two pints on draft at Philly B&G for happy hour. This beer just emanates freshness: cloudy blond, creamy head, great scent (better watch where I am going here). A bit sweet for an IPA, but really round mouth feel, kind of like a baby Thomas Jefferson Ale cooked for 90 minutes? PS: I don't get the 8%

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - APR 8, 2004
Pours a typical filtered amber with a perfect bottle conditioned head. Very nice mild cascade centennial aroma, not overpowering. Very big mouthfeel with lots of diacetyl. Hops are complete from bittering to flavor, but a little lite on the aroma hops. Maybe they just used a hopback? Really great complex chewy hoppiness. The East is certainly getting their share of great IPAs.
