First and foremost, with the name IPA, i'm expecting some sort of a HOP BOMB. However, history dictates original IPAs were not like this.
This is a classic styled IPA, something that would have been on the ship going to India itself.
Upfront bitterness that drug out over a very nice malty palette.
I kept getting some sort of lemony/leathery/coppery type flavors... certainly was interesting.
The only thing that turned me off from this beer is a "dirt" type flavor that i associate with some other breweries as well (New Belgium is a main culprit). People love both breweries, and they make great beer, it's just a flavor i pick up in their beer... maybe a close strain of yeast they use? hard to say.
As i cannot get this where i live, i wouldn't be able to get it again anytime soon. With that being said, i do not think i would get it again anyways unless i wanted to show someone a classic style of brittish IPA without going the expensive meantime breweries version.
