Medium orange color, off white head. Plenty lace.

Aroma was more malty, with a floral, earthy hop note, somewhat spicy. Malts are sweet and bready.

Taste was low bitterness, with some citrus, but mostly earthy, herbal hop notes. Light caramel sweetness, and some bread crust tastes.

Oily feel, slick, medium bodied, lower carbonation.

Even for an English, its fairly average.

Quite disappointing for an IPA...
Appearance it's ok. There's a nice, big and dense foam.. the color is not equally nice, it's an amber color quite transparent.
Smell is the highlight here, really hoppy and citric, with a nice tone of passion fruit and grapefruit.
Taste is hoppy and with citric/fruity tones in the beginning but it becomes tart and there's nothing balancing the bitterness in the end (a big problem).
Really light for an IPA, carbonation is ok.
The sugar used in the brewing is rapadura, Indica has a different kind of sweetness and bitterness because of this,.. it's quite interesting but don't make it a great beer.

600 ml bottle at Paralelo 12:27 in São Paulo. Cool looking retro-label with Colorado brewery's cartoon bear on the top with a drawing of the Taj Mahal on the right hand side. On to the beer:

Amber in color with tints of orange, the head is froathy and has good retention and lacing. The aroma was mild with herbal-like hops and faint fruity esters. Upon putting this to my mouth, I get a huge viscous body with some stickiness. The taste is relatively light to the body. Some fruity esters, a smack of booze, and a little bit of hops is all what I get.

It's a solid beer from a solid brewery, but it may not please the biggest hop cravings out there.

Amber color with a two finger head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Aroma of floral hops, a bit mild for an IPA.
Balanced beer with a bitter taste of floral and piney hops and malt bready base. Hints of caramel and fruits with some citrusy to it, towards grapefruit. Dry aftertaste with a good bitterness.
Light to medium body with good carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden.
It is an English Pale Ale, good beer and well done, but not extraordinary with compared to American IPAs. Still has a good drinkability and very pleasant to drink.

Dark amber with a latticed head of white froth that fades to oily film. Dark honey and heavily floral perfume on the nose with a whiff of booze.
A big dose of salty caramel and pear cake up front followed by resin and candied orange hops and maybe some wood oil - EKG all the way, if I had to guess.
Brown sugar rock candy finish and powdery bitter linger. Medium, chewy, soft, oily, slight burn.

This sat a while waiting for a certain special occasion, which probably did the hops no favors. At the same time, the big chewy malts in this would have been out of place in anything that's not a DIPA, so this was balanced differently most IPAs I've ever had no matter where it started. I also don't get the US branding (or am I the only one making an Indica = Cannabis = hops connection?) in what's a very English IPA.

The IBUs are there in the finish, so I can see where this could be startlingly to a Brazilian palate, and it's pleasant if a bit heavy. I'd like to see more aroma, but true to style it outstrips some so-called historical IPAs from the UK.

Caught my attention, anyway.
