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.

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.

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.

McSherman (638) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2015
Leuchtend orange zeigt sich das IPA im Glas und verstrmt typisch fruchtige Aromen. Etwas Malz und eine schne fruchtige Bitternote bilden ein rundes Geschmackserlebnis. Gut!

Quake1028 (638) - Tampa, Florida, USA - OCT 13, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2007 Tampa RB Gathering Beer #12....dark amber body with a small, diminishing white head....nose of pine cones, floral hops, grapefruits, tangerines and lemons....flavor is big on the hops, but well balanced by a caramel sweet malt backbone....medium bodied, oily resinous palate....medium length, bitter, piney finish....good IPA

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - AUG 4, 2008
draft at brewpub- a nice and tasty beer with a fine crisp dry finish that I always enjoy in this style. Although far from the best in class, I would go to again.
