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.

This IPA is one of the most delicious and balanced I’ve ever tried. Right when you open it and pour, it welcomes you graciously to the party it has in store. It has a wonderful golden color with a burst of bubbles and a light, hoppy head that kicks things off nicely. There is no bitter burst of hops here, just a gentle, somewhat bubbly smoothness. The beer itself is very sweet and creamy, and reminded me somewhat of Three Floyd’s Gumball head with its hints of candy. There is a distinct presence of malt which balances out the hops perfectly, meaning that every sip you take a delightful and balanced. More of a malty IPA with a note of hops than vice versa, which is how most IPAs are. This is perhaps the easiest drinking IPA I’ve ever enjoyed. Perfect representation of the city of Chicago.

Bottle from Carre four Brugge. Fruity even some nutty, some sweetness. Quite fresh bitterness. Some fizzy.

Not a huge fan. I realize these ratings are “subjective”, and I’ll admit I’m not an expert, but I do know what I like. It seemed to have more of a sour finish than a bitter hoppy one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 12oz. Golden with a white head. Interesting malty flavour with lots of hops. Taste is bitter and bitter. I like it ! Not a beer for beginners but a truly tribute to what IPA is meant to be. Great one. Long lasting bitter finish.

The aroma is bursting with citrus hops that make for a pleasant odor. The color is golden with a clear body. Much clearer than the other IPAs I tried this day. The flavor is citrusy but not overwhelming. It would be a great IPA to introduce to those unfamiliar with the style.

Peu de mousse, une couleur claire. Une bière bien houblonnée avec du parfum donc et de l’amertume. L’ipa est dite de style anglais mais on retrouve aussi du fruité exotique.
