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.

Bottle, 29-MAY-2009. Slightly hazy a little light with orange hue and white head. Nice nose of hops. Very grape fruity, and very bitter. If only one kind of IPA existed, I could live with this one. It goes well with food, and also alone. It is just a nice beer, and although I have had better IPA’s, I will come back to this one. Birthday present from Morten, thank you.

Thought this one was great. Nice and affordable as others have said, and along those lines as well it is also moderate in alcohol. I’d imagine I could drink a six pack of this stuff and neither tire of it or be too off kilter. That’s hard to find. But onto the beer. Bright citrus bouquet of hops--orange, flowers, and lemony. The color is bright orange and not at all amber. There was a very full mouthfeel that was nice, considering this beer’s small footprint. I wish more places sold this one. This is the stuff go-to beers are made of.

pretty solid ipa, very clean and refreshing taste. Still has a nice hop taste while not being overly strong. Not the best IPA but I’d have it again.

One of my favorite IPA’s and it’s 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... It’s 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 %.

3.7
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
