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.

A wonderful American IPA. Full of floral hops with distinctive lemon character. Full of flavour one of my favourite beers.

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2007
12oz. bottle - pours lightly cloudy, pale gold with a bone white head. Aroma is typically citrusy for an American IPA, but with a dose of sweet malt as well. Smells balanced. Flavour...tastes balanced as well. Fresh orangey hops, caramel malt, some earthy notes, all leading towards a mildly bitter finish. Classic IPA, in the English character/tradition. Certainly not a US hop bomb. Finish is actually quite sweet, presumably coming from the malts. Nice stuff, very drinkable.

BigBeer45 (1455) - Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2007
Bottle: poured a medium amber orange gold, some bubbles on top with some lacing, lot of pine citrus floral fragrance with pale malt and sweet aromas, faint caramel fragrance, hop bite with a malt sweet taste, citrus and pine needles taste, a citrus grapefruit juice lingers in the after taste, the mouth feel is a little thin, I thought it could be a little better, a good IPA.

tykjen (182) - Flor, NORWAY - APR 13, 2007
Desent IPA. Strong hoppy aroma with some malty caramel notes. A bit cloudy, just coarse filtered? Small head. Finishes a bit too much on the sweet side, I would prefer a drier, more bitter finish for my IPAs.

Nephilium (1749) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2007
Pours a hazy light amber, with a head that fades to lacing quickly. Nice hop flavor, not too much of a finish. Decent IPA, but doesnt compare to most of the others Ive tried.

MarkBarnes (412) - Waterville, New York, USA - APR 8, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2007 April 7, 2006; 12 oz. bottle. Cloudy orange pour; what little head dissipates quickly. Sparse lacing. Citrus aroma with notes of malt. The long-lasting dry bitterness on this one garnered an extra "palate" point, although the finish is a tad thinner than my favorites of the style. Pretty decent IPA.

Re-rate on July 3, 2007: Exceedingly well-balanced, with a welcome malt bias. A winner.

I have been drinking nothin but IPAs for the past couple weeks, and they are all starting to blend together for me. This one was really good too, nice amount of hops for this hop fan. Not to fruity. To many ipas claim to be the "hop lovers dream" though.

xmarcnolanx (930) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2007
A good example of a traditional American IPA. Has a piney, citrus hop nose with a predominantly bitter pine finish. The malt backbone is slightly sweet and the carbonation helps dry this sucker out. A very quaffable lawnmower beer.

Pours a golden yellow straw color with a white head. Aroma is malty with some bitter citrus hops. Flavor is malty with grassy citrus hops.
