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 lovers 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 youll remember.

Pretty good IPA. It has a grapefruity taste to it.

Good, but nothing real distinctive. Your pretty standard IPA. Tastes great at the key shop, in the new basement, or the back of a Honda.

Im not always a big fan of IPAs, but I couldt find much wrong with this. Great hops ratio and better coloring than your typical IPA. This and Samuel Smiths are both IPAs that kind of transcend the norm.

raindog (560) - Evansville, Indiana, USA - AUG 1, 2002
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.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2005 A good answer to the question, What do hops taste like?. Piney, grassy, citrusy, the aroma is the best part of this beer. Flavor is all hops without much else to get in the way. Will satisfy any hop craving.

I wasnt wildly impressed, I did like the citrusy nature (its definitely worthwhile to try) but there are better IPAs out there.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 8, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2003 Bottle - Nice floral and honey aroma. The hops and malt mix well together in this IPA. Has a nice citris finish.

Big cascade hop nose. Tons of fresh hop flavor. Not a lot of malt, but the freshness of the hops is enough to make up for this shortcoming. Not terribly complex, as it allows hops to tell the whole story.

Gelada (12) - ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2003
A good quantity of hops gives this beer a clean crisp finish. It is let down, however by being too strong, 5.9% is too much for an IPA, and the flavour of the hops is therefore cut too much by the alcohol.
