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.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2011 Poured from bottle into Tulip.

Semi-hazy orange with moderate head that dissipates a little too quickly. Some nice lacing.

Relatively mild (for an IPA) floral and citrus hop smell, with some grainy malt. Smells more like a Pale Ale to me.

Fairly grainy, slightly fruity malts with some citrus and pine hop taste. Bitterness at the end is relatively low for an IPA. However, there are some very strong pepper notes at the end that are a little distracting.

Pretty high carbonation for an IPA, with a light to moderate body and dry finish. Not nearly as smooth as other IPAs I enjoy.

Pretty light American/English hybrid IPA that is great drinking for a summer day.

(bottle - 12 oz) Amber pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is very mild with some citrus and piney hints. Flavor is bitter with a lot of citrus notes. Some flowery notes come through at the end. Rather juicy and citrusy. Alright, but nothing special.

Pours dark gold with a thick off-white head. Nice tight lacing. The aroma is malty with weak resin and pine. A light tropical citrus comes out in the flavor which combines with a lot of malt and just mild bitterness. A decent beer but I expected a little better. The bottle is about 5 months old so perhaps it’s just past it’s prime.

DYCSoccer17 (3712) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 16, 2009
6 pack from Richard’s Grocery in Plattsburgh, NY. Born on 8/28/09. Aroma is very pleasant with hints of pine and some slight citrus. Definitely some C hops, and perhaps some simcoe. Lightly husky. Transparent copper color with a strong white head that leaves good lacing. Spicy, peppery, and herbal hop flavors to start. Some pale malts and a little earthiness is in the middle. Finishes with a little sweetness. A bit metallic, too. A very serviceable, and clean IPA.

Lyncham (251) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2009 Not as strong or dry as other IPAs. The hops do not give off as much aroma as Sierria Nevada PA or IPA. It is a good beer to drink anytime. A bit above average but not great.

Lightly cloudy yellowish color. Citrusy aroma dominates. Flavor is very hoppy but not crazy bitter. Decent malt bill too.
