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.

On tap at GI Wrigley pub. Aroma: Floral hops and light pepper, very fresh. Appearance: Gold pour with meidum white foam. Taste: Quite bitter, floral hoppiness and nice refreshing finale. Palate: Full bodied and meidum carbonation. Overall: Good well-made IPA.

Had this on draft at GI-Clybourn in a pint glass. Slightly hazy amber pour. Clean grapefruit finish. Slightly floral on the nose. Nice bitterness but balanced, not overdone. The malt really creates a dry IPA.

On draft for Goose Island night at Rattle & Hum, NYC. Not a standout within the IPA style. Fruit notes in aroma and flavor along with hops.

arkurzynski (2460) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 19, 2011
Gold-amber in color. Nice citrusy hops in the aroma - lemon, orange, lime. Solid citrus bitterness held up by a decent malt background. Nothing outlandish, just a very good IPA.

3.6
Koelschtrinker (22084) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Sehr hopfiger Geruch, dazu etwas süßlich. Stark hopfiger Antrunk, unterstützt durch eine würzig-süße Note. Im Mittelteil lässt das Aroma keinesfalls nach, die Hopfigkeit ist auf konstant hohem Level, auch der süße Ton bleibt bestehen. Die ausgeprägte Hopfigkeit zieht deutlich zu erkennen eine bittere Spur hinter sich her, die im Nachgeschmack, nach abklingen der Hopfigkeit, deutlich stärker wird. Auch die Würzigkeit wird kurzzeitig stärker. Solch ein aromenstarkes Bier bei 5% - hat schon was! Test vom 11.6.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,12,11,11,8,12 - 11,50

honest_silu (70) - Jeddah, SAUDI ARABIA - JUN 14, 2011
Dark colour of urine after much fasting and dehydration for spl celebration during ramadan period. Tasting of tropical citrus fruits and then becomes musty like old cloth or even damp basement area. Not very simpal supar and what I would expect from indian region of strong ales with much hop and vigor.

jandd1983 (4690) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - JUN 10, 2011
It poured a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma was caramel, hops, pine needles and malts. The flavor was sweet malts. A very well balanced beer, but quite light in every aspect.

brnandersen (4344) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 1, 2011
355 ml. bottle from Kihoskh, Copenhagen. Cloudy golden-orange with a medium white head, and some nice laceing. Wonderful hop aroma, citrusy and spicy with a hint of pine. Flavor starts with malt then leads to strong hop flavor, fruity and citrusy, medium to heavy bitterness in the finish, lively carbonation. A nice crisp IPA

3.7
ekstedt (7013) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2011
Bottle (35 cl) from Ölbutikken, Copenhagen, Denmark. Clear deep golden, medium white head. Piney, resiny, and slightly perfumy hop aroma. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with medium earthy bitterness.

3.2
garza (574) - Oslo (NO), Caracas (VE), VENEZUELA - MAY 26, 2011
Pours cloudy yellow colour with an average white head that tries to disappear. Strong and nice spiced aroma, grass and fermented fruit hints. Refreshing taste, light sweetness, lightly bitter (to light in my opinion to be IPA). Medium body, oily feel, average to soft carbonation, and a short light bitter and dry after taste. Ok.
