Notes/Commercial Description:
This formidable India Pale Ale has a hop aroma that demands attention. The bold, citrus hop flavor is balanced by a dry malt character making this refreshing ale a true classic.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine Volume II, Issue V:

"Our hoppiest beer to date!" claims the brewery, at 55 IBUs.

Bright, rich copper-amber color with a slightly off-white foamy head. Nice retention and stick as the head settles. Fruity nose, hint of floral, with a slight note of citrus, soft herbal qualty and malty grain. Fairly light-bodied and easy on the palate with a pleasing smoothness. Malty up front with a bready, caramel center and a good amount of sweetness. Hop character is a bit rough, leafy and very oily. Flash of lemony-grassy bitterness, but it's rather dull. Finish is sweet, moving toward dry with a lingering maltiness.

Is this really an IPA? Not a modern one. It's so restrained, too malty and the alcohol content is begging for more hops to back the sweetness, which dominates. This is more of a strong ale, certainly not an IPA--from either side of the pond.
