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.

I just didnt like this one. IPAs are not my favorite style, but this was in the multipack I bought and I wanted to try it out. I really like DFH 90 min IPA, but not this one. It was bitter and offered little enjoyment to me. In fact, I drank half and poured the rest out.

This was from a green bottle in a 6pack, pours an IPA color in its purest form, so delitcate with rich hues and strong tan and shade undertones. Taste is impeccable to the exteme, a smooth, low key hop taste at first settles with wonderful thunder with the after taste. Small head that sticks around through the whole brew, that makes it easier to go back and endulge more. Great beer.

Had this in NYC, at Joshua Tree bar, I was surprised this was so good. It pours gold color, decent head. It had floral, caramel aroma, slightly bitter hoppy tones in the taste. A smooth beer overall, I would drink this regularly on tap.

This poured a darker yellow to orange color with a white head. Aroma was a decnt nose of light citrus hops and some lemony character. Flavor was a nice mix of bittering and citrusy and a bit dank triple C hops. A little less than I was expecting but I think this might have been a bit old.

sm89walt (2055) - 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.
