COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true English Indian Pale Ale. Our Raj IPA is created with a medium body and finishes dry and bitter possibly even more so than your Uncle Sal after you broke his window when you were eleven. Our English IPA has an intense hop flavor and high hop bitterness. The lofty hop level was originally required so the ale would stay preserved and survive the voyage around Africa during the English occupation of India in the 18th century.

BucannonXC5 (1460) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Type: Draft Glass: Pint glass From: Four Peaks Brewery in Tempe, Ariz. Price: $5.00 (guessing) Purchased: May 16, 2013 Consumed: May 16, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a reddish, honey amber color with 1-2 fingers of white head when I got it. Good lacing on the sides and good retention all the way down. Smelled a weird mix of hops and malts. Resin, grass and herb hops, honey, caramel and roasty malts. Taste wasnt anything to be desired. Roasty caramel malts, grass and resin hops and maybe even a bit of rye. Long lasting bitterness on the tongue after. Medium body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. I wasnt too much of a fan of this one. The hop/malt balance didnt quite work.

Draft @ Four Peaks. Clear deep amber with a very dense off white head. Mild aroma of flowers, spicy herbs, caramel, dough and citrus. Flavor of doughy malt with a fairly strong hop bitterness, light alcohol warming. Medium body with average carbonation. Not bad but prefer the Hop Knot over this one.
