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.

12 oz bottle. Typical hops coming through on the nose with an orange appearance and a lasting head which laces the glass. Tastes as you would expect with an ipa; hops, grapefruit, pine and bitterness. The mouth feel is quite thick and chewy for the style and it is very balanced unlike some other American IPA’s which go completely over the top with the hops. This is a fine example of an IPA and a beer that I would buy again.

Finally got around to trying this, bottle from Harris Teeter. SA glass. Lite copper with big frothy white head. A: piney hops over strong caramel malt, wet cardboard. T: metallic pine and floral hops, cardboard, damp grains. Nope.

Clear amber pour. Light peachy nose. Light smooth and sweet in flavour. Fairly simple and clean. A little fizzy and thin. Not a stand out. O.K ish.

355ml bottle. Pours a pale biscuity gold with a white head. Aroma: Pine, citrus, grapefruit, mild caramel malt notes. Pleasant aroma. Taste: Pine, citrus, grapefruit, mild mango, peach, caramel malt flavours. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Moderate to high bitterness that lingers on the palate. A basic flavour balance, but nevertheless it is quite tasty. Would happily drink this as my regular.

33cl from bottle bought at Waitrose. Well-balanced IPA, slightly citrusy, hoppy and strong flavour

ALLOVATE (3056) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 6, 2017
So, now brewed under contract in Australia by the macro monster CUB. This shows in many ways from label, to aroma........, to flavour. Sudsy, messy white crown off the pour is quickly diminished to a mere island of white. Radiant, orange amber body, bright as bright. Slightly vegetal, boiled cabbage, oxidised metal and rubbery tinge to the otherwise spicy and earthy hop and biscuity malt nose. There is a hint of bay leaf and rosemary in there too. Malt forward, chewy, barnyard grain and cereal-like right through to the assertively bitter and slightly acrid finish. Light honey sweetness upfront. Chalky and mineral-like mouthfeel. Weedy, acrid hops (tetra?) last well passed their welcome. Body is light to medium with spritzy carbonation flattening to still as it head south. Really disappointing. I don't for one minute think this represents the original ale produced before s#!t hi the fan with Goose Island. Unbalanced mess!!! (33cL, BB 07/02/18, 1st Choice Liquor, Riverton)

I'm am overall very happy with this Beer. The citrus Orange taste is very light and delicate . Hopes is complete for a iBU 55 . The taste is out of this world . Thanks for destroying my taste in Heineken and Stella Artois !

Sample from a bottle at Wegman's. Aroma of citrus and bread. A little thin.
