COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our IPA recalls a time when ales shipped from England to India were highly hopped to preserve their distinct taste during the long journey. The result, quite simply a hop lover’s dream. And this classic ale adds a fruity aroma, set off by a dry malt middle, to ensure that the long hop finish is one you’ll remember.

Delicious easily drinkable India pale ale, with the odd goose on the label. Really good flavor from the American hops. Despite the good hoppy flavor its almost a cross between a pale ale and an IPA.

awmoore (9) - Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2011 does not count
fruity aroma is strong, malt undertones. orange, hazy, with minimal head. good bitterness, lingering aftertaste. I think this might not be the best bottle. I’ve enjoyed this beer more than this before.

A: The beer pours a surprisingly hazy orange color with a finger of white head that has pretty poor retention. S: Smells fairly sweet, but mostly of sweet citrus fruit such as orange and perhaps kumquat. Toasted grain and malt with a bit of bread and toffee to go along with it. Some mild grassy and floral hop notes, too. T: Sweet just like the nose. Bread and caramel with some sweet orange and orange peel. Slightly bitter with maybe just a hint of pine. Some more of those floral and slightly earthy hop notes to it. M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation. D: Not what I’m really accustomed to with the American IPA being my weapon of choice for the broader style. Not awful, though.

12 oz bottled on 09/21/10...poured golden yellow with a slight orange hue, nice head retention, white and fluffy...aroma of citrus, pine, caramel...medium bodied beer (light for an IPA), average carbonation, with a slight bitter finish. Overall, just a straight forward well balanced IPA that I enjoyed quite a bit.

crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
A generic IPA. This one has mild hops, and is fairly malty. It is a bit watered down imo.

Beerdedone (3408) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Bottle. Pours golden orange with an average head. Aroma was hoppy with piney and citrus hops, grapefruit and a touch of caramel. Flavor was sweet and bitter with caramel, citrus, grapefruit, pine and had a bitter and dry finish

Tasted on 2/16/11 on draft at the Clybourn Brewpub. Pours clear golden orange with an average white head that leaves spotty lace. The nose is pine resin and orange hops with light earth and some bread malt. The flavor is light bread malt up front, but hops are the focus with resin, citrus peel, and a good amount of dust and earth. The body is light with a ton of carbonation and a long bitter and earthy finish.

juiceisloose (1492) - Windermere, Florida, USA - FEB 16, 2011
12 oz bottle courtesy dchmela. Bottled on 12/28/10. This pours a clear, bright golden orange color and topped by a smooth head of off white foam that slowly settles to a thin film. The foam leaving scattered spots of lacing around the glass. The aroma shows notes of orange citrus and grapefruit hops over a malt base of buttery toffee. The flavor follows suit with the orange and grapefruit hops up front followed by the toasted toffee malt to balance things out. The hops add an ample amount of bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with lively carbonation that leads to a citrus hop bitter finish. Pretty nice ipa, but nothing that really wows you.

draft at a dive hotel in dayton, ohio. a solid IPA...slight citrusy grapefruit flavor, nice hoppy finish. a pleasant find at such a dump hotel.

Rasmus40 (20798) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 13, 2011
Hazy amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel and hoppy - grapefruit and peach. Flavor is rather sweet and rather bitter. Finish is nicely, lasting bitter and dry. Very good IPA. 181010
