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.

1guywith_aboat (254) - phenix city, Alabama, USA - JUL 13, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2013 Pours cloudy golden with a white head. Smells very grapefruity and grassy with a hint of sour fruit candy (ie. Sour punch straws, sour skittles). Taste is grapefruit and slight pine with a minimal malt prescence. Thin and very oily, smooth mouthfeel. Relatively high carbonation. Very tasty though it could benefit from some light colored specialty malts for a little more body. Kind of predictable for an IPA and nothing out of the ordinary, but still delicious and solid.

On tap (at the Ft. Lauderdale Airport, possibly.) Pours pale godl with a white head. Aroma and flavor of citrus, grapefruit, pine, caramel notes, cardboard. Decent.

Bill Becker (2003) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 16, 2018
On draught at Old Chicago. Pours a brilliantly clear light gold, nice head of foam, lacing. Smells of mild pine, orange, toasted malt, some fruity sweet notes. Tastes kinda sweet, mild hoppy bitterness from pine and grapefruit, fruity, mellow. Medium body with medium carbonation. Good but not something I would put on my regular rotation.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2017 Honestly pretty decent and utterly drinkable. A good IPA to drink along with a meal.

Benters (137) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2017
Pours a clear golden colour with average carbonation. New World hop aromas of citrus and pine dominate. Taste is very much geared towards the hops with grapefruit and pine flavours dominant, with a lingering hoppy finish, but does have some nice caramel and sweet malt fruit flavours in there for balance. Enjoyable American IPA.

cwill (108) - Parkesburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2017
Light amber pour with a small head. Aromas of hops, light citrus and pine. Nothing complex going on. Sweet bready malts provide a nice mouthfeel with little carbonation. Long dtime y finish. Not the best IPA, but in a pinch, like at an Eagles game, this can serve as a beer as a decent choice.

Dervock (1510) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2017
Tap - pours honey orange with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, doughy and wheat. Taste is mild fruity w8th a malty fruit finish.

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 It has a very strong flowery scent, if people like 1664 should like this as well, except this is a bit more bitter than 1664

I really like this. It's an English style IPA so with only 55 ibus it's IPA-lite. I'm fond of more malty beers Irish and especially Scottish ales. I do like ipas and this one is just right. Not too hoppy so you got some bready malt character coming through. The nose is very citrusy with maybe a hint of pineapple. The taste is similar a little more grapefruity which I would expect from a more hoppy beer. Reminds me a little of bass but with a more hoppy punch. If I saw this on draft I would get it for sure and could make this my go to IPA even though it is owned by ab- InBev. It's really good and for people who like hoppy mild English ipas. Some ipas are just too overpowering on the hop side and unbalanced this is surprisingly balanced.

Finhead (1846) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2017
Clear, golden pour with a white head. The aroma has citrus and grassy hops. It has a medium body with oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bitter with a more neutral, somewhat dry finish. A nice anytime IPA.

LesArgen (386) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2017 There are heaps of hops that give off a strong flavor of spearmint with grapefruit, but also a slightly unpleasant dust flavor. The palate is a little watery but the aftertaste is the best of the flavours so I'm happy.
