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.

Wellestone (33) - Andover, Minnesota, USA - FEB 10, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Golden hazy hue. One finger of quickly dissipating head. Very small bubble lace that is also quick to disappear. Nice steady lemony hops aroma with some citrus in both the taste and aroma. Creamy medium body mouthfeel. Nice sweet maltiness to balance the hops. Very steady avg IPA. May be a good session beer

Bottle from The City Beverage Co, Old Street. Pours amber with a small white head. Nicely balanced bittersweetness, a touch of fruit and a dry hoppy finish. This is the kind of beer I could keep a stock of, extremely drinkable and great with a variety of foods. In all honesty, it prolly wouldve scored higher if I hadnt had so many double IPAs as of late.

CanIHave4Beers (4047) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Pours a clear pale color with champagne like bubbles and plenty of fluffy head and lace. Aroma is good lots of fresh hops very piney and grassy. There is a good bitter flavor fresh spicy hoppiness balanced by a mild roasty pilsner like maltiness. The palate is sharp, this is considerabally better than I remember.

This is a very good IPA. Extremely well balanced between bitterness and taste. The aftertaste of this beer is delicious as well. I usually go back and forth between this beer and Dogfish Head 90 Minute in a night.

Alphadelic (2180) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 20, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2009 Bubbly pale orange with a sustained head. Sweet and floury aromas. Honeyed sweetness on the tongue. Very smooth with a buttery thick finish. A little sweet for an IPA. I know my score seems harsh but I drank this straight after a Stone IPA and there really is no comparison. 2.7 Now, having had this alone I have to say it is rather lovely. The hop notes are so green and fresh. It reminds me of a Thornbridge Halcyon on a not-so-intense scale.

ilherps (248) - Carbondale, Illinois, USA - JAN 18, 2009
This beer has some really nice aromas of citrus and pine from the hops. Lots of differing flavors of grapefruit, pine, and mild grassiness. This is a very nice go to beer.
