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.

Leighton (22302) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2010
Bottle. Nothing special. Poured an orange-brown with a soft white head. Light malts in the aroma with some dirty hops. Sweet flavor up front, but it thins out and the bitterness is minimal. Light to medium in body with average carbonation and a thin body.

chriso (21656) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2009
Cask (gravity) at GBBF 2009, Day 1 @ 6.0%. Incorrectly listed in the programme as Hypnotic IPA. Quite pale gold colour. Some citrus and tropical fruit notes but definitely in an East Coast/UK style rather than the more assertive aromatic, heavily hopped US IPA style. Seen in that light it worked quite well in cask format without quite summoning up a lot of excitement. A pleasant drinking beer.

3.2
harrisoni (19318) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2009
At GBBF 2009. Cask. Clear gold, thin beige head. Beer number 1 of the fest. Little bit of pee on the aroma. Quite toffeeish in the mouth. Hops calm down, some tangerine, decent caramel malts. OK hop finish.

3.4
TBone (18219) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 5, 2009
[email protected] Golden color, small white head. Pineapple-pear aroma, some alcohol, like a strong cider. Strong hop juice flavor: peach, pineapple, hops.
