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.

The clear golden amber body was quite effervescent and formed a two finger thick foamy head. The aroma hops were citric floral, and came across as sweeter smelling than a typical IPA. The taste was a combination of biscuit like malt and grapefruit from the hops. The body felt a little more thin than typical IPAs from the East Coast and Midwest, and leaned more towards the West Coast style of the likes of Stone and Rogue. It got fuller and rounder as it warmed up.

Bottle from Carre four Brugge. Fruity even some nutty, some sweetness. Quite fresh bitterness. Some fizzy.

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.

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.
