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.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 9, 2010

Source:Fresh 6 pack purchased from Kroger in Danville.
Glass:Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass.
Appearance:Clear gold pour with a finger of soapy white head that quickly dissipates into a scum on the top.
Aroma:Aroma is mainly very fresh, spicy hops. A faint hint of flowers and a bready nose are present.
Flavor:Up front is very spicy. This fades into a lingering bitterness and some bready malt.
Palate:Medium/light body with solid carbonation.
Overall:This is excellent fresh. I can imagine that once this fades, it would probably not be any good, but this sixer was a week old!

Pershing (541) - 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.

Perpignan73 (40) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Tap, at the Green Room Ormskirk. Id had 7 pints before I tried this, which is usally the knell for any impartial review, but despite my inebriation it had shining lights around it. Creamy, hoppy, fresh, refreshing. A match winner through and through.

toscanoigor (186) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - FEB 23, 2017
Cerveja dourada, com leves luzes acobreadas, boa formao de espuma. Aroma de malte e lpulo muito equilibrado: dulor ao fundo, frutas ctricas, manga. Sabor igualmente balanceado, pinho, mel, frutado e amargor no ponto. Final seco, de mdia durao, retrogosto amargo, corpo mdio e tima carbonatao. Super refrescante, d pra tomar vrias. Um clssico do estilo.

radassace (147) - SCOTLAND - FEB 18, 2017
355ml bottle. Pours crystal clear amber with an off white head. Really malty on the nose with some lemon, touch of grapefruit and something floral. Its got a really rich mouth feel to it. Very sweet caramel malts to begin with, leading into some lemon. Kind of like a strong lager, but then finally get some dry bitterness right at the end. Not my favourite IPA by any means, but it is fairly satisfying.

Zastanawiałem się (i nadal zastanawiam) skąd to piwo ma tak wysokie oceny. Wizualnie jest jeszcze nieźle, chociaż piwo jest klarowne. Zawsze preferuję mętne ipy, piana średnioziarnista, nie zostawia śladu na szkle i dość szybko opada. Aromat mocno przeciętny, gdzieś tam wyczuwalne jakieś owoce tropikalne, ledwo cytrusy, wszystko miesza się ze słodowością. W smaku słodowość i owoce w typie mango, cytrusw jak na lekarstwo. Goryczka z początku nieśmiała, mocniejsza jest na finiszu, ale nie narzucająca się. W skali od 10 do eurolagera umieściłbym je gdzieś pośrodku skali.
