A style of ale that was fashioned to survive the long voyage from England to India during the British colonization. Hop, hops, and more hops! This ale has an intense aroma and a long lingering finish. A beer for the connoisseur, this is the Brewmasters choice.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Thanks to my boy JayAre46 for a couple of cans of this treat from the great white north

A: I should give the appearance a 5 just because the can is so AWESOME!. It poured a beautiful crisp orange with 2 fingers of foamy white head. The head stuck around for a good while and left nice traces of lacing

S: holy pine hops! Stings the nostrils like catching a whiff of Sex Panther! Great pine hop backbone with some great citrus notes in the back. Getting some orange, lemon and grapefruit

T: The taste follows the nose to the T son but with some nice bread like qualities and a little bit of caramel to balance out the hops runnin wild on my tongue

M: Medium bodied, clean and crisp. Drying hop aftertaste that coats the entire inside of your mouth and lingers. I wish that there was someone here who I didn't like so I could just go breathe in their face and set it on fire with my hop breath. Very nice

O: Overall this was a great IPA. No wonder Terance and Phillip were so funny... they were drunk off of this stuff.
