New Delhi Freight Train is brewed to honor the classic English India pale ales. In the days of sailing ships, IPA was brewed in England to be shipped to India and the preservative effects of hops and alcohol were needed to withstand the long journey. While certainly a very hoppy and strong beer it is slightly less so than the huge American style IPA's. Flowery, assertive hops are balanced by a firm malt platform. NDFT is a signature series of Chris Erickson.

Rewarded myself with this fine IPA after a day at Jackson Hole. Slightly cloudy medium copper body with a sticky off white head. This is a big smelling IPA, with a good dose of toffee malt and big, floral, citrusy hops. Reminded me of Two-hearted...
Taste does not disappoint with the big sweet toffee malt up front, followed by those mouth-watering hops. Great tasting hops, with big floral and citrus flavors that make you forget about the palate-dominating bitterness. Very nice. Just wish I had gotten a growler to go! (523 characters)
