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.

Nice strong taste. Bitter, with a bit of aftertaste. Doesnt seem to dominate the palate too much. All in all, a hell of a way to start off my 21st birthday!

On tap at GI. Pour is rich copper color with a thin white head. Aroma and flavor are light hoppy (most pine and resin) with a nice balancing maltiness. Solid all around IPA.

FreshHawk (596) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2010
Bottle. A - Slightly hazy copper amber with decent sized foamy white head. Decent retention and a fair amount of lace left over. S - Good hop smell, with a good amount of citrus (orange and grapefruit) as well as some floral/herbal smells. Faint caramel malt. T - A lot of varieties of hop flavors are abundant. Citrus (orange and grapefruit), a good amount of herbal/floral tea-like hops. Also a bit pine and pepper. The background has a bread/biscuit and slight caramel malt taste. This provides a base and balances the hops a bit. M - Medium body and decent carbonation. Crisp and fairly smooth. D - Pretty good. Fairly balanced beer with hops being the center of attention. Body pretty good for drinkability. Notes: Pretty balanced hoppy beer. Not an amazing beer, but a good beer for a hop centered beer but not a really bitter or heavily hopped beer.

The look is very clear, a light orange color. Not much head, but lots of carbonation. A little hazy actually. Looks just about right, quite normal. Really nice grapefruity hop smell. That bitter grapefruit becomes sweeter on the longer drag. Smells very bitter and really quite good. The taste is very strong and bitter hops. The malt is nice and bitter, but also dry and biscuity. Very nicely balanced. The yeast is also another good added dimension. Feels thick and also very dry. Has a biscuit/yeast base, but also has a clean finish. Its well balanced overall. Dry and bitter; bitter in both the hops AND the malt. A good, serviceable IPA.

LilBeerDoctor (3872) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Growler from Big Z Beverage. Pours a clear orange with a thick, fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus, rich hop oils, tropical fruits, grapefruit, and melon rind. Flavor of plenty of citrusy hops, rich caramel malt, grassy and garlicky hops. Very tasty, superbly drinkable. This one surprised me since I never really heard anyone mention it as a top IPA, but I found it to be quite good. 8/4/8/4/15 [3.9/5]

sloth (2876) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2010
Small white head, steadfast, lasting with a nice lace. Hazy yellow/gold color. Nose is nice, fruity, melons, citrus, has that juicey aroma. Med/light bodied, moderatly resinous, good carbonation. Juicey hoppiness plays of some faint malty notes, notes of ink, pencil shavings and light malts are well balanced and enjoyable. Dry, snappy finish, good hop flavors. Good bitterness, nice balance, easy quaffer. Surprise! Bottle procured @statelineliquors.

12 oz. bottle. Pours an orange color, with reddish and gold hues, and off white frothy head which lingers for awhile. Aroma is citrus heavy hops, a grapefruit ipa. Taste is grapefruit hops, which are evened out by some malts on the finish. This is a straightforward IPA, not trying to do anything too crazy, but it does everything quite well, would be a good selection for any occasion.
