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.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 Draft, at the brewery. Not a hopheads IPA, but a good one to suggest to friends. All the homebrewers gathered at the brewery break room agreed the color was "orange." A nice fizzy head helps spread the hop aroma. Yes, there is hop bitterness, but as Dick Solomon on "Third Rock" said, "Not in that fun, spanky way." You also get a balanced fruity taste that matches the maltiness nicely. Well done, and in stores at popular prices. Re-tasted, 2/6/04: Hmm... the hop component is getting stronger, if anything. Not "extreme" yet, but still good (and I ran my finger through a trash can of foam they were using for blow-off in this brews fermenter... mmm, bitter!

WillemsUrenkel (1737) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - APR 25, 2017
0,355 l bottle from Just in Beer, Groningen for 3,20 . Pours out red golden, little bit unclear with a small white head. Malty, hop and some tropical fruit on the nose. Taste starts hopy, crisp and fresh. Increasing bitterness. Mid fruity, malt and some almonds or nuts. Mid hopy bitterness with citrus in the aftertaste. Nice one.

Bottle at restaurant in Groningen. A hugely hoppy beer, the hops kinda take over very dramatically. A very classic American craft beer taste, tasty, nothing extraordinary however.

Colchaude (11) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
From a 473ml can. No big suprises here, classic english IPA taste and aroma. It does the job and its not bad but it misses a bit of balance IMO.

Pint can; clear golden brown puffy white head; wheat orange, lots of hops, good balance, not quite a gold standard IPA, but close.

Keg (Trinity College Beer Cellar, Oxford)
Pale, keggy pour. Simple fruity hoppy aroma, very generic. Fizzy palate, erk. Taste is generic watery hop juice. Drinkable at a push, but not very tasty.

@ Brussels, Belgium Beer Trip.

Pours pale amber with a medium white foam. Scent is medium musky IPA properties. Taste is consistent IPA with sort of dirty water and weird burned caramel flavors.

exeter (529) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 17, 2017
Pours a nice golden colour with excellent head and lacing. The taste is citrus, pine and earthiness. Smooth in the middle but bitter at the end. Too much pine and not enough citrus.

BrewWhatIWant (147) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2017
Pours amber with a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is hoppy with hints of citrus and honey. Taste is rather bitter with notes of grassy hops, lemon and a hint of honey. This one has a very clean flavour but there isnt a lot of depth to It.
