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.

Onslow (1540) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 20, 2009
Pour from 12 oz bottle. Slightly cloudy tawny colored brew with a nice aroma of malt, butterscotch, bitter hops. Pleasant swallow with a fine IPA character, though a bit restrained in the flavor. The only downside ot this brew is that there is nothing here that is really distincitve -which is more of a commentary on how wild many other IPA’s have gotten. Overall, this is one fine brew.

Sampled at DØE Beerfestival 2009, Valby. Pours a clear yellow beer with a white head. The aroma is hops, citrus and orange. The flavor is hoppy, and leaves a bitter palate. Overall a good beer with a pleasant hoplevel.

Pours a vibrant deep orange with small white head. The perfumy aroma is intense but well-balanced with prominent notes of grapefruit, honey, and orange. Flavor is hoppy with some lemon, honey, orange, and spice. Very well-balanced. Soft mouthfeel with a low-moderate level of lingering hoppiness. I expected this to be more in-your-face, but it’s surprisingly delicate.

Bottle at Beer Temple. Orange body with medium head. Hoppy nose and taste. Some bitterness and citrus. A bit watery. Pretty good IPA.

screigh (773) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Pours a straw color. Fluffy white head that stuck around with some nice lacing. Small hop citrus aroma. Bitterness is almost the first thing I taste but it’s not an overpowering bitterness. Mouthfeel is nice and light. Has some sort of dirty taste in finish. Very mild IPA in my opinion. Easy drinker.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2011 Surprised to see I have not had this one before... Picked up at SL. Drank at home. Nice orange color, decent one finger size head. Good aroma of citrus hops. Taste is nice. Slightly fruity... piney nice little hop bite to it... Nothing mind blowing, just a solid IPA... Medium body, easy drinker at less than 6 percent.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - SEP 15, 2009
Hazy orange look with a decent offwhite head. Aroma holds lots of grape and citrus with some sweeter orange notes aswell. Medium bitter very refreshing flavor with a medium sweet caramel backbone. Nice.

Meatmallet (126) - Salem, Illinois, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Appearance: Pours an orangeish amber color and looks very hazy with a thin white head. Leaves a little bit of lace on the edges of the glass. Smell: Heavy pine hops with rapefruit, orange, and lemon citrus smells. Taste: Starts sweet and turns sour. Heavy grapefruit taste and there seems to be a bit of caramel to it too. Mouthfeel/drinkability: Feels creamy in the mouth with active carbonation and a medium body.

Pretty tame for an IPA- more balanced than I normally like but an easy drinking beer with a little hop kick at the end
