COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
India Pale Ale was developed in Burton, England, as a "Super-Premium" hoppy pale ale around 1800. The extra strength in alcohol and hops helped preserve the beer on its long export journeys to India and beyond. The style developed a following worldwide. Its flavor begins with a smooth, malty creaminess followed with a big burst of dry-hop flavor from English Kent Golding Hops. It then finishes with a lingering yet pleasant bitterness.

Big Swell IPA is a fresh handcrafted India Pale Ale brewed with huge amounts of American hops and malted barley...dry hopped to perfection!

can @ Keg Liquors / Clarksville IN --- best by 8/11/16 --- Aroma of citrus hops and malt. Nearly clear medium amber, frothy ivory head that sticks at one-finger, lace cobwebs. Taste is malt that moves smoothly through medium carbonation on the way to a burst of citrus hops; then it’s slowly joined by graham cracker malt in a medium finish. An exceptional brew.

Perhaps Maui has consistency issues? The six pack I bought is not good. The taste has some malt sweetness and plenty of piney hops, but a weird vegetable or cigarette smoke taste dominates. Very dry. Not good.

On tap at EurHop #4, Rome-Italy. Deep golden quite clear color, little foam leaving drafts as it lowers. Nose: balanced semi sweet citric, truly fruity (apples mostly). Mouth: semi sweet start, middle clean watery with a sparkling bitter finish. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Piney hop aroma with some tropical floral hops. Taste is a slight sweet carmelized malty with a piney hop finish and some floral hops. Malt balances the hops nicely and it is not too resinous. Has a bit of yeasty finish that makes it a bit dirty, but still overall a nice IPA. Note: says canned 11-11-15 and I had it 10-6-16, would think this would be a bit better fresh for sure. The dirty yeasty may be due to age?---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drank from a pint glass, a really nice traditional English IPA, nice malt base with nice earthy hops, usually not a big fan of dry hopping with EKGs.
