Notes & Commercial Description:
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.

A - cloudy, light caramel color. Head evaporates quickly.
S - light pine, bit of caramel.
T - not overly hoppy, or even a bit weak for an IPA. Smooth, bitter finish.
M - clean, crisp, with just a bit of lingering hoppiness.
O - Another fine beer from Three Floyds.

Excellent combination of ale and IPA, though a little leaning toward the ale side. Perfect beer for an afternoon of football and decorating the Christmas tree.

Served chilled in a traditional pint glass.

Poured a medium/light amber with an off white head that fleeted to a meer thin layer and ring around the glass. The initial aromas are of malt, slight hop and pine. The taste include the formentioned along with slight citrus. The malts definitely outweigh the hops in this one. I believe that's more of a English trait than an American IPA which would be more hoppy, floral. Ends with a nice bitterness bite and is reminiscint of a tea. Good brew, very drinkable.

Enjoy!
