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.

From bottle. Part of May Dayton Beertasting event. Pours golden amber. Piney hops dominate the nose. Crisp taste with caramel malt finishing off. Nice effort.

doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 14, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with a thin, whispy white head, some lace. Smells of faint, ripe citrusy, very slight nutty scent. Tastes earthy, slightly nutty, slightly astringent, semi-flowery and citrusy hoppy. That’s right, I said it. Soem sweet malt flavors linger. Medium body, good carbonation.

Uaru02 (23) - Simpsonville, Kentucky, USA - SEP 5, 2008
12 oz. bottle. A very good beer that I can find nearly anywhere. Not the best, but better than most. A good burst of hops that doesn’t linger very long. Easy to drink.

I’m not a big fan of this beer. It smells intoxicating, but the taste is ...soapy. I know I use that a lot to describe this kind of beer, but thats what it tastes like to me.....nice color, great foam.....and the taste isn’t bad...but its just something off-setting to me!

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Pours a lightly hazy deep amber with nice golden highlights and a medium foamy off white head that laced. Aroma of floral and citrusy hop notes, caramel, toffee and nuts. Flavor of fig newtons, toffee, caramel, nuts, floral, light pine and citrus.

Clean piney hoped nose. Deep amber golden color, minimal light head pretty decent fingers. Earthy, grassy hops throughout. Crisp palate with lingering hops

kassner (1573) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2008
Bottle, light golden in color. Slight haze. I have seen this IPA really extolled in a lot of Mags, which makes me wonder. it’s a nice IPA but no way best in class. Modest Head, very little malt or flavors overall, no Hops odors, more like an APA.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 6, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours a clear dark gold with one finger white head. Nose is caramel malt and light hops. Taste is sweet malt upfront with a mild hop finish. Medium mouth feel. Meh, not one of the better GI offerings.
