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.

On tap at O'hare airport. Pours amber with a white head. Not like most other IPAs, this one is not that hoppy. Sweet malt, fruity, mild bitterness, citrus. I normally don't like malty IPAs but this one was pretty good. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Good, but nothing remarkable about this one. That is not to say it wasnt enjoyable and I wouldnt drink it again. Malt build is in balance with a hefty does of hops.

Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 12 ounce bottle. Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a white foamy head. Aroma: Earthy and spicy hop aroma, decent. Taste: Earthy hop bitterness, with a caramel sweetness and malts. Palate: Medium body. Overall: Pretty much the quintessential IPA. Very good representation.

Poured into an English pint glass. Amber color with a cream colored head. Aroma is caramel malt with some grapefruit hop notes. Taste is similar with more biscuity malt flavors coming through as well as some earthy hop notes. Medium bodied with a slightly dry finish. Overall this is pretty good. Not nearly as hoppy as some IPAs, but a good traditional example.

From the bottle, it pours a light, clear copper-orange color with a small rocky white head. The head disipates quickly leaving some lacing on the rim of the glass. The aroma is of sour grapefruit peel with notes of grass and some sweete malt undertones. The initial flavor is also of sour grapefruit peel. The middle begins to balance things out with a bit of sweet malt and then the finish is of hop bitterness that lasts a long time. A VERY nice IPA.

Golden amber color with modest white head. A: nice IPA, with a perfect balance between lemon and exotic fruits. Faint apple juice note. No extreme highs, just a nice blend. T: as expected, relatively bitter with some very distinct wood and floral notes. Bitterness that hits the palate first is apple, and bitter from exotic fruits. Floral notes follow, mostly rose water. After yeast deposit, the beer gets a bit of a doughy character (as opposed to a very crisp beer before the yeast). Bitterness abates relatively quickly, a fruity aftertaste is left.

Orange pour with a thin white head and lacing that clings solidly to the glass. Light pine and citrus aroma. Taste is citrus and light pine. Really crisp and refreshing.

MrW (582) - 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.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2016 Een helder, goudkleurig bier met witte kraag. Aroma hoppig en bittere smaak zoals je van een IPA verwacht. Verder weinig complex of bijzonder en een beetje waterig. Mwah.

I have been drinking nothin but IPAs for the past couple weeks, and they are all starting to blend together for me. This one was really good too, nice amount of hops for this hop fan. Not to fruity. To many ipas claim to be the "hop lovers dream" though.
