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.

Pours orange amber with off-white head that fades. Strong hoppy orange citrus aroma with a flavor to match. Nice malt balance in the finish.

Scrumpy369 (646) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUL 29, 2016
Bottle in Edinburgh. Clear yellow colour, nice white head with good retention. Nose is brutal hoppy. Fruity, flowery. Mango, peach, tulips. Taste sadly doesnt deliver as much, just medium bitterness. Nice overall, but lovely nose.

Metalhead (644) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2004
One of the best IPAs around. Not nasty or over the top like some. Very smooth and highly quaffable with BBQ chips.

jimmack34 (640) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Bottle. Pours coppery orange with smooth frothy head that lingers for a short while. Smells sweet and floral and citric, with some pine and grass. Tastes very smooth, sweet and hoppy, citric fruits present. Finishes smooth with a piney aftertaste.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - MAY 7, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Hoppy citrus aroma; tastes of tart orange peel; a big piney hop attack balanced by a sweet malty mouthfeel; a long dry hoppy finish, excellent stuff.

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2013
UPDATED: APR 24, 2013 Draft a Press Box. Pours golden amber with a white head. Fruity hop and floral aroma. Taste is mildy hoppy with citrus, floral and spice notes. Not bad.

McGarnigle (637) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 16, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2015 Bottle. I appreciate the bottled on date, and this one is about 3.5 months old. Amber color (the website calls it bourbon) with craggy head. This isnt a big hop IPA, perhaps more malt forward. Thats OK, but Id like a bit more bite. The hops that are there taste like Cascades. I dont really find this all that memorable. Maybe there was an issue who handling for my bottle, causing a lack of freshness. Re-rate: in a 16 ounce can this time, which is in its favor. Keeps it fresher too. Still, this isnt an exceptional IPA.
