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.

CanIHave4Beers (4183) - 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 (2232) - 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.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 31, 2008
tap at goose island clybourn... nearly transparent orange brown pour with a medium to significant soapy white head.... aroma of light, clean citrus hops... citrisy hope flavors, a good portion of it grassy, and finishes off on a sweet/earthy bitter note. quite palatable and goes down easy.
