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 lovers 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 youll remember.

sm89walt (2041) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2010
12oz bottle. Poured a lightly hazy, effervescent golden orange with a medium sized, lasting white head leaving a fair lacing. Lovely fresh, green hops aromas of grapefruit, pine and marmalade backed by a pleasant sweetness. Hops seemed more muted on the tongue than the aroma implied, beginning with lemon and orange and finishing on a zesty, mid-bitter hop note. Not overdone, restrained and enjoyable. Quite dry and crisp on the palate with a medium length, balanced finish.

AndyReynolds (1085) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2010
Aroma is fresh hops with a sweet malt backbone. On the palate, it is lighter than the aroma lets on. The taste brings out a grassy, floral, citrus hop. Nothing special and a little watered down.

RPKLove (105) - Astoria, New York, USA - APR 25, 2010
Pours a hazy amber with a generous white head. Aromas of fresh hops, citrus and roasty malts are present. The taste is very forward with hops, sweet caramel and bread malts. A light sweetness and bitterness are very pleasant on the palate. This meduim-bodied, but full flavored brew leads to a well balanced, smooth finish. Nearly a great IPA.
