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.

3.3/5  rDev -0.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours a dark amber color and appears hazy, with a two finger foamy white head. Appears unfiltered, interesting.

S - Fruity mostly, with some nice earthy and floral hops.

T - Fruity and hoppy up front. This really tastes like your standard Belgian ale to me. Nice malt backbone and citrus finish. Tastes more like a Hefe or Belgian than an IPA...

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

D - Fairly drinkable.

Overall, not a good representation of the IPA style but not bad either. Reminds me more of a hefeweizen or Belgian ale as others have noted. Was looking forward to a nice IPA too, this is the second disappointing beer from this mix pack so far...

12 oz bottle, with May notched out on the bottle label.

appears hazy rusty orange color, with off-white head that fades. smells a bit of earthy hops, just okay. tastes slightly sweet, malty. hops build, finishes slightly bitter. medium body, higher carbonation. maybe it was better when fresh, but just "meh" right now.
