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.

Aroma of citrus, taste is citrusy, hoppy, decent alcohol presence, okay, but others are better.

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.

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.

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

33 cl från Dranken geers i Gent. Oj vilka stora förväntningar jag hade på denna! Men detta är bara en dussin ipa.

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.

Often the best beer available at bars, but nothing special. Pretty generic IPA.

There are times when a fella wants nothing but an easy drinking IPA. Now is one of those times and this is one of those IPAs. A very lightly hazy copper and gold body, some decent lacing and snappy, enticing toots of pink grapefruit, clementine, mango, pineapple and lemon draw in the eye and the mouth for a carefully calculated inspection. Sweet honey and light cereal hints play a background balancing act to the hoppin’ good time going on up front. A nice medium lively carbonation and some malt chew round out this enjoyable beer. I’d goose-neck a few a of these into me anytime my slurp-service is required.

Orange gold with a small white head. Tropical fruit and citrus aroma. Malty with a firm bitter finish. A good standard IPA.

Wow! Great ale! Fantastic hoppy nose with a massive grapefruit kick. Pours with an amber hue and a small creamy head that is mostly diminishing. Flavour is initially sweet with great complex hoppy tones, but goes on to a dry finish. This is a highly hopped beer (of course being an IPA) that has been a real eye opener for me being the first American craft brewed offering I have sampled. The question that most begs to be answered is why do I have to go to a specialist to get this kind of American beer? Especially when perhaps the worst selection of beers in the world, American standard beer, is common place here in Britain. They give American beer a bad name. If this is what America has to offer then I just want more...
