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.

(draft) Golden yellow, beautiful head. Fruity/hoppy nose. Just a sip of the head revealed the hops in this badboy. Medium bodied with tons of malt and even more hops, excellent IPA.

Murky orange pour...medium head. Aroma is intense, and I mean intense. I poured this puppy and was overwhelmed...so much that I took it across the room and could still smell it from 20 feet away! Grapefruit and other citrus hops are the dominant aroma. Flavor seems weak compared to the aroma, but still pretty damn good. This is one of the more drinkable IPAs I’ve had in a while! The hops aren’t over-the-top for a non-hophead and there is some malt flavors waiting in the wings to keep this from being one-dimensional. Flavor is citrusy hops up front, then some malt sweetness, followed by a bitter aftertaste. Super easy to drink with a very good mouthfeel for a beer of this ’intensity’ (e.g., not comparing to an Impy Stout). Great ’regular’ offering by the folks at GI

Lemon/grapefruit, citrus peel hop aroma. Similar citrus hop flavor, with subtle floral finish. Light grainy, sweet malt flavor. A little thin, but nice aroma and flavor.

MrW (741) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - JAN 17, 2017
On tap. Fruity hops aroma, grapefruit, citrus lime. Clear gold blond with a fading head. Yet a small layer lasted. Malts, grapefruit, ananas in the taste. Dry long finish, not a lot of carbo.

shorlin (736) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - DEC 16, 2002
Nice ambery peachy colour. Big floral, fruity aroma. Taste matches aroma well, with good IPA flavours. Not as bitter as some better IPAs. Very smooth. Good finish and an ejoyable beer from a friend who brought this back from the brewery.
