Notes/Commercial Description:
A light copper body low bitterness with good hop flavor. This is my impression of what the English troops may have been drinking when they occupied India. The pale ale they drank had mellowed considerably. The wooden casks had spent many months traveling on ships and long inland journeys to the troops, where they were then tapped and enjoyed.

Foamy white head, plentiful lacing.

Citrus smell, hazy look.

Lacks balance in the taste. Not enough backbone to support the hops, which provide some mouthfeel to an otherwise bland flavor. Has a taste of an unfinished brew.

Even as a session IPA, I'm left wanting something more - spice, malt, something.
