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.

I’m not always a big fan of IPAs, but I could’t find much wrong with this. Great hops ratio and better coloring than your typical IPA. This and Samuel Smith’s are both IPAs that kind of transcend the norm.

A generic IPA. This one has mild hops, and is fairly malty. It is a bit watered down imo.

(Draught) Pours a clear golden color with a descent-sized white head. Beautiful bouquet of florals and grapfruit aroma. Flavor is grapfruity. Enjoyable IPA!

Bottle of 355 ml from Vinmonopolet, Norway. Pale brown. Thin head. Dominated by hops all the way through. Hoppy aroma, hoppy flavour and hoppy aftertaste - and I like it.

Bov (12888) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 1, 2008
courtesy of Toni Flükiger - pours a hazy dark orange colour, pale beige foam and a nice lace; robust flowery hoppiness with notes of cream and a touch of apricot; medium-bodied, quite oily with a moderate carbonation; solid but not aggressive bitterness; long bitter flowery finish - very good

j12601 (12700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - SEP 30, 2010
On tap at Birdsall House during their Goose Island event. Pours a hazy orange brown with a thin white head. Light caramel, faint hops, a touch of sweet fruit. I’m wondering if this is 3 months old at this point or if they did a second batch, but I’m guessing the former. Medium bodied, a touch sweet. Creamy, long sweet finish with a touch of grapefruit. Tasted a bit like old IPA.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden honey color with a thick white head. Aromas of citrus and hops, with a light hint of pine. Smooth and clean mouthfeel leading into a slowly developing and lingering finish with layers of hops and bitterness. The beer itself is almost watery, but as it is not tainted with any off flavors, it simply makes this a very easy drinking IPA.

Camons (12681) - Hasselager, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2010
Bottle @ Home. Pours light golden with nice white head. Aroma of sweet malts, light caremel, grassy and citrusslike hops. Taste is balanced malty, caremel, fruity bitternes, citruss, light grapefruit. Medium body, easy drinking.

hopdog (12673) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with Ughsmash. Poured a medium and hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of stronger pine with some grapefruit. Tastes of citrus and pine. Has a light sweetness to it in addition to the bitterness.

Bottle. [thank you, Yngwie]
Pours a nice hazy pale amber with a 2 cm thich creamy white head on top. Wonderful lacing in big blotches. Aroma is strong, with lots of pine hops, mixing with caramel, grapefruit, light roastiness. Low to medium carbonation and a rather creamy feel. Flavour is relatively sweet at first, lots of caramel and herbal hoppy sweetness. Middle is dry and pine-like hoppy, before a long lingering dry aftertaste of fruity hops mixed with that light roast that appeared in the aroma as well.

Bottle 330ml from Sainsburys. Golden yello in colour thin white head. Hop haze. REsinous, grapefruit aromas. Very nicely blanaced hop character, between the hop flavour and bitterness. Dry finish, and slightly chalky mineral content.
