Beer added by: philberinghele on 03-21-2008

A throwback historical ale brewed when English IPA's were hopped up to last the long voyage from England to Colonial troops in India, using English malts, English hops, English yeast and aged slightly on toasted oak for a 19th century taste.

Thick off white single finger head with nice lacing on a hazy golden copper body. Aroma is malt heavy with breads, tart citrus, candied orange and pine resin. The flavor is basically the same and follows very well with the exact same experience. Although good I don't really understand what makes this one English. It may use English hops but it basically came out as a malt forward AIPA from my experience. Medium to full body and moderate carbonation.

Not my favorite Three Floyds brew. I love big hoppy beers, but I think the hops in this one are overdone because of the types of hops used. Here the English hops come off harsh and too bitter in muddy sort of way, and the malt tastes a bit too thick and chewy as well. The malt and hops don't balance each other but compound the assault on the palate with no contrast in sight. Oh well, not to my taste.
