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.

Bottle, 5.9%. Good caramelly and grassy aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Good stable white head. The flavour is a lot like the aroma, with a caramelly sweetness and a good grassy hop flavour. Mild bitterness, not so strong, but clean. Well-balanced. Good mouthfeel.

Muggus69 (2269) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - FEB 10, 2010
355ml bottle. Porterhouse, Dublin. Deep gold body, thick persistant white foam. Aggressive hop aroma; lots of pine and grapefruit. Full body, sticky texture, high carbonation. Even more brutal hop on the body, spicy woodiness, citrus rind, very aggressive bitterness making a highly dry finish. Full on IPA, that lacks a bit of malt backbone.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Tap at RNH. Pours a light clear copper with a nice lasting frothy head. Aroma is clean grassy herbal and light citrus hops- doughy malts, light caramel and toffee and fairly fruity even for the style. Flavor is light citrus - mostly clean overall, toasted malts, light crystal, slight Amarillo tropical note, light pine and more citrus as it warms with some extra fruity hints as well- finish is pretty clean- well balanced and nice standard IPA.

arminjewell (9426) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Pours orange with white head, aroma is citrusy hops with some bready malt. Taste is fruity up front with orange and lemon, leading into a biscuity and bready malt that finishes bitter. Nice IPA.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Hazy peach pour with a small, though nicely lasting white head. The aroma is juicy pine, earth, citrus, lemon, orange, and sappy resin. The flavor is fruity orange, tangerine, and apricot with definite backnotes of sappy resin, earth, and some sweet malt. The palate is medium bodied for the style with a lively caressing effervescence and a clean, flavor retaining finish.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Slightly hazy peach pour with a smallish but lively frothy white head. Aroma holds lots of citrus hop, notably orange, pink grapefruit, and lemon, along with touches of earth, floral, and piney notes. Flavor is quite solid; more citrus notes, but with an increased earth and evergreen presence in the form of moss, spruce, and some resin. Palate is pretty standard for an IPA of this caliber; medium bodied, with a lightly bitter finish. Above average IPA for sure.

Aroma is moderately hoppy with a strong floral scent. A nice golden color with noticeable haze upon opening. Taste is definitely the beers best asset. It goes down smooth, hoppy, and bittersweet, never too hoppy, sweet, or heavy. Its just right. A personal favorite and one of the best IPAs Ive had

Pours a opaque yellow-amber color that reminds me of passion fruit. Head was thin and white, but pretty stable throughout the entirety of the drink. Smells of citrus fruits and some hops. The taste had less fruity overtones and more floral hops and spices, although there was a slight citrus bit to it. Decent amount of carbonation and kick. As my first IPA, I was definitely impressed and will look forward to trying others.
