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.

On tap at Quintons. Nice and hoppy aroma, citrus lemon mostly. Came with a decent small sudsy white head, ok lacing, blonde orange in color. Taste is nothing really too crazy but good, alot of fresh citrus hop, some GI style roasty toffee-caramel type malt, good finish, slight spicy hop bite, medium to light feel. This beer will always be dear to my heart, especially in IC.

12 oz bottle into tumbler. Light bronze pour with a minimal white head. Soft citrus hops define the flavor. The is no alcohol presence at all. Light carbonation and body. Refreshing and drinkable brew. Great for hot summer days/nights. Overall: very solid.

just poured a 12oz bottle of this into my trusty beer glass. It has a nice orange/amber color. The aroma is a little weak for my liking. And then the taste; It’s a bit on the weak side for my tastes, It’s almost between a good pale ale and a mild IPA(which is kind of an oxymoron) But I would buy it again, if the price was right Cheers!

12 oz bottle from HyVee. Aroma: Hoppy, citrus, not too complex. Appearance: Orange, slightly cloudy, kind of thick coming out of the bottle. Head is small and looks carbonated. Goes away fast. Flavor: Good amount of bitter hops, but not too much. Good carbonation and really smooth. Palate: Medium body. Crisp, clean, smooth, bubbly. Overall: Very drinkable. They serve it on tap in steins at DC’s in Iowa City, which made me very happy in school.

Bottle, at home with renffisch, 25th June 2008. Golden with a small white head, this has a good nose of honeyed hops. Flavour wise, it’s hoppy but with a lovely perfumy sweetness. Good palate with a lasting hop taste, but not too fierce either. A good IPA.

Miver (609) - Silver Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2008
12 oz bottle. Poured clear amber with a medium sized off white head that left a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus and floral hops and also fruity. Flavors of caramel malts, slight citrus hops, floral, fruity esters. Medium bodied and a pretty smooth drinkin IPA. Not bad.

Golden in color with scents of citrus hops that dominate. In the mouth it was medium-bodied and very well-balanced. To repeat, the thing that strikes me most is the balance.

As a new beer drinker, I enjoyed the citrus and berry at the first few sips. Aftertaste was not overpoweringly bitter but nicely hoppy and went down very nicely with a pork chop dinner. Would most certainly buy again.

vulcanmeister (291) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Pours medium amber with abundant white lacing. Nice floral and grapefruity aroma. The taste is a nice balance of citrus, hops, and malt. Medium body and not overly bitter. Final taste is warm grapefruit and nice malty sweetness. A most enjoyable IPA!
