COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
No mere beverage could satisfy the thirst of the courageous and gallant soldiers who stood guard over the colonies of the British Empire. Their thirst could only be quenched by a full-bodied hearty Ale; an Ale balanced with rich flavorful hops. We are proud to offer our interpretation of this English style India Pale Ale for those who loong for the time when once your duty was complete, the taste of a fine Ale was reward enough for a job well done.

Bottle at home. Pours hazy gold, thin white head. Aromas are all grapefruit. Taste is all bitterness. One-dimensional and a thin finish. OK.

Not really enjoying this too much. Funky smell, funky taste. Weird flavor profile. Prefer the lagers in the cricket hill profile.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2014 Pale, slight head, golden. Firm shuffle of cheap grapefruit. Over bittered, chewy hopness. Really one sided tang. Dry heaps of hops on the finish but nothing moreish about it.

Malty aroma. Hops are there for sure but malt dominates the aroma. Taste is malty with some hop balance. More piney hops, but sweet malty makes the hop profile hard to determine. Still lots of flavor and maybe not the best ipa, but very drinkable. Maybe a little sticky and sweet palate. Not a beer I would expect to have an overall score under 3?? ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours our very foamy and not from user error. Light gold in color. A light grainy aroma is apparent and probably the best part of this beer, although there is limited hop aroma. A bit confused at this point by the IPA designation. Palate is thin and uninspiring. Reminds me a bit of a lawnmower beer with a little more body. Finishes with a slightly syrupy aftertaste. Drank this side by side with Boulder Beer Hazed & Infused which was by far the better beer.

Quite foamy (possibly due to transportation). Hazy. Quite hoppy. Grapefruit rind sits on palate for awhile. Good all around IPA, although seems to be more American than English. Thanks Erin for helping me knock out Jersey!

burg326 (5604) - Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Poured a gold color with aromas of light pine, citrus, light lemon and some acetone. Flavors follow suit a decent IPA, thanks John for giving this one to me.

pours a burnt lemon to light orange color with two fingers of head. the beer is hazy. smells of citrus, pine, earthy hops, with a light caramel aroma. the taste is crisp and refreshing, again, citrus and pine hop flavors, with a nice earthy quality to it. sweet malts with a slight bitterness. overall, this is almost a sessionable IPA, very drinkable, and crisp, but not really a great IPA.

brokensail (16645) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle from Ed, shared @ Bobby’s house. This is a gusher...that ain’t right. Golden pour with a big white head. Smells of celery, club soda, and green apple. Tart, oxidized, and overall not very good on the nose. Flavor is acidic/tart. Lots of celery and vegetal notes. Green apple, club soda, paper, and grass. Fairly bitter, too.

2.4
GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 24, 2013
355mL. <<GUSHER WARNING>> Pours amber with big yellow foam. Nose is acetaldehyde, lemon verbana. Taste is minerally, sweet, celery, light bitterness. Riddled with brewing flaws.
