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.

ClassyBeagle (376) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2013
FROM NOTES: November 22, ’13. A: A simple nose of citrus and pine hop aromas with light notes of Kiwi or other tropical fruit. A: Clear orange color with a one-finger head. T: Somewhat more subtle and watery than the nose suggests. The flavors are not as strong as I would have expected but it does have a nice pine and resin aftertaste, as you would want in an IPA. P: Light in body with a mildly dry texture and a soft carbonation. O: A decent IPA, but not quite bitter enough for an IPA but still tasty.

Not a huge fan. I realize these ratings are “subjective”, and I’ll admit I’m not an expert, but I do know what I like. It seemed to have more of a sour finish than a bitter hoppy one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 12oz. Golden with a white head. Interesting malty flavour with lots of hops. Taste is bitter and bitter. I like it ! Not a beer for beginners but a truly tribute to what IPA is meant to be. Great one. Long lasting bitter finish.

The aroma is bursting with citrus hops that make for a pleasant odor. The color is golden with a clear body. Much clearer than the other IPAs I tried this day. The flavor is citrusy but not overwhelming. It would be a great IPA to introduce to those unfamiliar with the style.

Peu de mousse, une couleur claire. Une bière bien houblonnée avec du parfum donc et de l’amertume. L’ipa est dite de style anglais mais on retrouve aussi du fruité exotique.

Bottle from Total Wine, South Richmond. Pours clear gold, lots of carbonation, small off-white head. Aroma is unappealing... and I don’t say that often. It smells like opening a can of Chef Boyardee ravioli along with some vegetation. Yes, that cheap tomato sauce/paste aroma. Flavor has some of that cheap tomato sauce/paste flavor along with glue, grass, pine, and random citrus rind. I’ll drink it, not a drain pour, but blah.

Light amber color, white head. Hops and malts aroma, citrus. Nice balanced taste, medium bitterness, caramel. Light bitter finish.

shawnmurphy (495) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2017
On tap into a plastic cup at a Blue Jays game in Toronto. Pours light amber with trace white head and lacing. Aroma: sweet malt. Flavor: malt-forward, some bitter balance. Mouthfeel: light- to medium-bodied, a little thin and watery. Years ago I had this at the brewpub in Chicago after it first opened in its original location, and the beer was fantastic. Years later, now sold off to AB/InBev to be mass produced and sold everywhere, it’s very disappointing.
