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 @ Specific Gravity, Salisbury Md-Off orange pour w/a moderate head. Pitchy hop aroma. Flavors of pine, hops, some grapefruit, kind of a standard IPA, but a pretty good one. Not to much of a hop bomb, pretty drinkable

a really nice IPA that is somewhere in between an east coast west coast version, not too hoppy that it becomes a meal, and not too malty that it stops being an eglish pale ale. Absolutely delicious and ranks up there with the best of them.

On tap at the power plant. Nose is bright, with grapefruit, orange, and floral notes. Taste is big cascade, and just some light malt character. good lace and head retention. slick mouthfeel. nice balanced bitterness. a nice beer.

Thanks Barban for sharing. What a way to start of a rainy weekend. Classic, fuity ipa with notes of grape and peach. The taste is fresh but needs a little more body. But still a lovely ipa.

lusikka (7819) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2010
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2011 355 ml bottle @ Tuomari. Rated @ 11.8.2009.
Clear golden colour with a white head. The aroma is caramel sweet, hops, pine needles and malts. Hoppy flavour with sweet malts on the side. Light/medium bodied, oily/watery texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced but quite light in every aspect. (8+3+7+3+15, 3.6)

355 ml bottle. BBE 08.09.2012.
Pours a yellow colour with a white, thick, frothy and lacy head. Aroma of exotic fruits, floral hops and some pine needles. Flavour of floral hops, exotic fruits, pale malts, citrus, caramel and pine needles. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a bitter, floral and sweet finish. Slightly better than last I time had this.

WesKBob (563) - Bethany, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 1, 2010
On tap at Elephant & Castle in Chicago. Pours a clear orange straw color. Big white head with very good retention. Wonderful aroma of piney hops. Flavor is grass and earthy hops, but with a hint of toffee sweetness and roasted grains. Medium mouthfeel and lingering floral hop finish. Nice.

3.9
Die_Kapusta (191) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 31, 2010
Hazy warm golden. A really nice white/beige head that says "come drink me now!!" Aroma is butterscotch, peanuts and freshly baked bread. Some floral notes aswell. Taste is sweet, juicy and hoppy. Also a lot of floral flavours, bergamot and orange peel. Sustaining bitter finish. Very drinkable. A bit too sweet for my liking but still a very solid IPA.
