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.

Hazy. Good Head. You could smell pine but do not taste it.. Tastes sweet and lightly hoppy. Real easy to drink Good One.

On tap at Elephant & Castle in Chicago. Pours a clear orange straw color. Big white head with very good retention. Wonderful aroma of piney hops. Flavor is grass and earthy hops, but with a hint of toffee sweetness and roasted grains. Medium mouthfeel and lingering floral hop finish. Nice.

Bottle. Nice, classic American IPA, not too hoppy and bitter. Good session beer, fairly refreshing.

A great IPA. Clear yellowish orange body with a long lasting rocky head of small white bubbles. Piney aroma with some citrus rinds. Bitter hop flavors with a balance of sweet malts. Lingering bitterness and easy to sip. Glad this is now available in Florida.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2003 Rerate:Too generous first time. Bottle conditioned but you cant't tell except for the bubbles on the head. Pours highly carbonated but minimal,milky,lacey head.The head is quality but small. Aroma straight fruity,piney.Taste is very BITTER. There might be malts their but I can't tell.EXREMELY drinkable.Full flavored till the end but not a knockout. This beer is barely balanced.This will satisfy any hop craving.

Pershing (560) - Garland, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Clear gold with lots of carbonation and a lasting head. Nice lacing with aroma of sweet citrus. Medium body with enough hop bitterness to call this an American style IPA although the English makes a better one with the right amount of hops without going over board like American Brewers seem to do these days. Finishes a little dry with a lingering hop taste.

A solid IPA. The hop complexity is low, but its not thin, for sure. There is a solid bitter presence as a backbone, which I appreciate. Could use some more aroma hops. Overall, its pretty well balanced and drinkable. Nothing offensive I can find about it. Enjoyable.

thooper41 (556) - BELGIUM - APR 23, 2013
12 oz bottle: Appearance is golden brown with minimal off white head. Aroma is of floral hops. Taste is a concoction of floral and citrus hops with a nice malt backbone.
