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.

Just simply a wonderful beer. Definitely not a session brew -- this one is for sipping and enjoying more slowly. For all the hops it boasts, it also possesses outstanding balance.

Copper colored with a half inch of creamy and dense tan head. The aroma is of a hint of smoke and earthy hops. The flavor presents bold earthy hops, smoke, and finishes with a touch of vegetation and coppery and slightly dark malt. The mouth is dry, lightly resinous and sticky.

Burnt amber with a white foam that dies to a thin blanket leaving bumpy lace.

Smell is corn, grapefruit, lime and fruity apple, with taste bringing graham, grapefruit, spicy pine and green tea via a frothy, crisp body and dry finish.

Haven't had an English IPA in a while. Nice malty flavor with a nicely balanced bitterness but no pine or spruce. Very refreshing with a nice effervescence and a long finish.

Taste: slight sweet malt, alcohol notes with a spiced hop forward flavor. Nose has complicated hops and some boozy aroma. Deep amber/gold, somewhat opaque, tall foam head with delicate lace. Medium body
