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.

Pours a darkish golden amber. Smells of sweet grapefruit hops. Tastes of grapefruit and slight hop bitter. Medium mouthfeel and not much of a linger on the tongue. Very nice session IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 Pours a slightly hazy amber-orange, with nice frothy head. Great head retention on this one through the entire pint. Aroma & taste is typical IPA citrus & pine, with nice balance. Very smooth. An excellent IPA.

Poured from bottle to pint glass shows a light orange/honey color. Light head w/lacey residue. A smokey orange like malt aroma. Light and citrus taste with a leaning to grapefruit flavor and a light grapefruit after taste. This would be good on a warm afternoon after going to a Cubs game.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2011 comparing it, unfortunately, to the Daisy Cutter I just had...night and day...the DC tasted like an IPA; this does not...more like a pale ale at best.... Aroma....nice nose / not too hoppy Appearance...nice amber color; good sturdy head...hazy color Taste...that is the problem...enough for a IPA but huge Palate...medium body; a little thin; not quite bitter enough at end Overall..a good session IPA....

glennmastrange (2924) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle, Moderate malt note of caramel, moderate pine and grapefruit for the hops, light soap for the yeast with cherry and pepper in the background. Head is small, wispy, white with some lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, a little oily and has a lively carbonation. This has all the components of an excellent IPA.

Poured from 12 oz bottle. Aroma is of a standard hoppy IPA, taste also very good. It’s great for a standard IPA and can see this as a gateway for non-craft beer lovers to get into trying things other than mass produced lagers.
