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.

One of my favorite IPAs and its pretty affordable at that. Great aroma of spicy, floral and just a hint of citrusy hops. Flavor is nice and malty but balanced well with a very clean bitterness. Palate is very nice... Its easy to put a few of these away.

bembelembe (219) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 19, 2009
Smooth and oily textured ale. Light amber golden body with small head. Beautifully touched by strong orange and grapefruit flavor with floral hop bitterness. Fruity-perfume smell. Dry bitter-fruity aftertaste. Medium carbonated.

Taverner (1100) - San Ramon, California, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Lots of frothy white head. Pours golden amber and clear. Flavor is bready, but balanced with hops. Probably the best example of a balanced IPA out there. The dryness from the malt combine with the hops to make a nice floral dry IPA.

livelaughlovep (108) - Lakewood, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Large, frothy head - appreciable lacing. Clear, sparkling amber with a thin, slightly oily body. The nose brings perfume, citrus and pine hops with a cookie-like malt backbone. The flavor is similar, earthy, herb hops with a hint of citrus and resin. Not bitter what-so-ever. Very smooth, sessionable IPA. Not the finest I have had, but the most enjoyment on the cheap, certainly.
(This is a hopheads review. You may find this slightly more bitter than I would. :D)

Todeon (325) - SWEDEN - MAY 17, 2009
Bottle. Nice golden color. Thick white head. Aroma is really floral and fruity with plenty of fresh hops and a balanced maltbackbone. Taste is fruity and floral with some grape in there aswell. Good maltbalance to it all. Finish is bitter. Really tasty considering the 5.9 %.

Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Pours dark gold with a thick white frothy head. Aroma is herbal hop and grapefruit citrus. Flavour is good hop bitterness, some pale malt showing through and a bit of a thinning out towards the finish, though a nice lingering dry-ish bitterness. Very drinkable

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Bottle. Pours a golden orange body with a white head. Nice citrus and pine notes among a light caramel hoppiness. Grass and a mild hoppy finish. Needs more IBUs.

trayns (246) - Beverly Hills, Michigan, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Bottle. Pours a deep golden color and a medium white head. Citrus, hoppy aroma and a similiar tatste. A good malty balance to this IPA, smoother and sweet than other IPAs.

This is a little thin for me. It is worth drinking if you want something to slam. Lacks the big hoppy flavor of a real Northwest IPA.
